A rare opportunity to acquire this chain free double-fronted Victorian home. There were only six of these houses built alone St James’s Avenue and are rare to come by, with this being the largest due to its rear extension and the added benefit of the roof terrace. This home offers an abundance of opportunity, with the potential to further extend into the loft space turning this into an even more elegant home than it already is (subject to the usual planning permission).
In one of the most sought-after areas of the city, with everything to hand including Amex and the County Hospital, this charming house with a west facing balcony at the front is at the end of a stately terrace, adorned by trees. Raised from the street for privacy, the stained-glass door opens to an inviting central hallway and high ceilings which continues throughout the house boasting wonderful character features, cornicing and fire places to two of the current bedrooms.
Situated in a tree lined Avenue leading to the vibrant shops, cafes, and bars of St James’s Street and just moments from the beach, this four double bedroom, double fronted family-home has been transformed from a Villa into a luxury 21st century hideaway ideal for entertaining. Every room is big and bright as each span the depth of the house from east to west, and with two spacious rooms on each floor, you have full flexibility to decide which you use are bedrooms and which to use as receptions or an office to work from home.
On the lower ground level is a uniquely glorious and extended kitchen diner with handmade walnut cabinets which conceal sophisticated storage solutions. A central island invites company and the gleaming Quartz surfaces provide ample space for informal suppers. Designed for entertaining the high spec appliances include four ovens: Convection, steam, rotisserie and a microwave, and there are two warming trays. The touch induction hob is backed up by a fabulous lava grill and there are twin fridges, a wine cooler, and a freezer all-ready to hand. Beneath a glittering hung ceiling, there are four levels of lighting to choose from and as well as the double sink by the dishwasher, there is a separate drinking water basin complete with a Quooker tap. In the dining area, French doors open to the walled garden making al fresco dining easy and there is a separate utility area by the front door to the steps up to the street, so beach kits can go straight into the machine.
Upstairs on the entrance level the living room is perfect for entertaining whatever the weather with its private access to the sheltered roof terrace which leads down to the garden allowing access to the kitchen diner and private lower ground floor bedroom suite. There is also an additional reception/bedroom to the entrance floor.
This light and airy house really spreads its wings on the first floor which is set aside as a fabulous master suite. Seriously glamorous, the landing opens to the west balcony for people watching and enjoying the evening sunsets. The twin luxury bedrooms to each side each have LED downlights by the windows to ensure privacy. Both bedrooms on this floor are large, with heated rails for dressing gowns and plenty of floor space even with large beds. There is also a walk-in dressing room looking over the garden. A dark, lustrous wet room with a rainfall shower and coloured ambient lighting above the double ended bath perfects this irresistible package, with glossy black tiling contrasting with opaque glass in recessed shelves and there are ingenious glass panels in the wall over the staircase. All very, very Brighton at its flamboyant best.
