One of the most private properties on the market…blink, and you’ll miss it. Nestled at the bottom of a private lane, located off Withdean Road is this magnificent home. Built 20 years ago on grounds which once belonged to the glove maker to the Royal family, my client over the years has quite simply built the perfect family house.
Beyond the electric gates is this impressive sunken mock Tudor style house with a driveway suitable for any number of cars and a separate double garage, ideal for a classic…or two.
Approaching the front door you will only but appreciate its sheer size and the quality of the build. The house is arranged over three floors with a beautiful centre stair case running from top to bottom, right through the middle. The ground floor provides ideal function for the family, with rooms for the children to play, a home office, separate family room and kitchen diner.
One of the main features of this house, is its opportunity to really make it your own. The kitchen is fitted with a large central marble island with double doors opening out to the sunny terrace. Leading off the kitchen is the dining room, which also leads out to the patio. If you like entertaining for your friends and family, then this is the ideal house for hosting. Off the kitchen are two W/C’s, a utility room with plenty of storage.
The main living room, tucked away at the rear of the house is a gorgeous place to unwind, with an inbuilt fireplace and lovely views over the garden, you’ll certainly enjoy relaxing in this cosy lounge.
The two further reception rooms were used as a home office and ‘games room’…It’s certainly large enough for a pool table or could even be a cinema room.
On the first floor there are five double bedrooms and four bathrooms. The principle bedroom is a great size and fitted with an en-suite shower room and walk in wardrobe. The second bedrooms also benefits from an en-suite shower, with rooms three and four offering equally lovely sizes and share a ‘jack and jill’ style bathroom. The fifth, would be a fabulous room for a young child, or could be incorporated as a walk in wardrobe to the adjacent bedroom.
The top floor bedroom spans the entire width of the house, complete with eaves storage and offers the added possibility in fitting an en-suite on the right hand side. This room could be the perfect room for a teenager/student!
Externally, the secluded and peaceful garden is unrivalled. You feel you could be in the countryside, yet you’re only a 10 minute drive to the beach! As you step out from the kitchen the patio spans across the entire back of the house, which is an ideal spot for a BBQ, loungers or even a hot tub. The mature and lawned garden is split into two parts, providing you and the family a wealth of space to run and play. The current owner has plans for an outdoor annex which could be used as a separate space for guests when they visit. – Which when they see where you live, you will.
In summary, this house is completely private, situated on one of Brighton and Hove’s most desired roads and offers the space and opportunity for this to be your ‘forever home’. As the children here have now flown the nest, it's time for the family to downsize and offer someone new the opportunity to make it a well-loved property.

Finding a mortgage
Buying a house is a massive investment and getting it just slightly wrong can be costly. Unless you have big savings, chances are you’re going to have to get a mortgage. It’s a loan secured against the property which means if you can’t meet the repayments the lender may repossess your home and sell it to get their money back.
The better you understand mortgages and everything to do with them, the better armed you will be to get the very best deal. With MMR in place, you’ll need to review your finances themselves before approaching possible lenders to see whether you can afford the monthly payments now and if interest rates go up, which they will…
What is MMR?
When it comes to finding a mortgage you have several options: mortgage brokers, individual banks or searching online. Again, it’s important to do your research. Searching online first, gives you a good idea of what’s available, but an independent mortgage broker can provide a more in-depth search and help you through the process. Being independent holds great value as they are not bias to any particular lenders or deals, they will give you their honest opinion and take away the stress of working your way through the mortgage market, they work for you to find you the best package to suit your requirements.
