This Edwardian family home sits just back from Hove Beach, a five-minute walk to the shore. Follow the promenade into Brighton, a leisurely half-hour stroll along the seafront. Or, hop in the car and be at the vintage shops of The Lanes in just seven minutes. Buses run regularly into Brighton centre from just outside your door here too.
A pretty red-brick facade greets you and, stepping inside, the herringbone floors and midnight-blue walls create a classy atmosphere. The main lounge is a vision of old-world charm with gilded mirrors and an original fireplace at its heart – the perfect spot for an evening tipple. While the dine-in kitchen is a huge open space with floor-to-ceiling windows letting the sunlight stream in. We love the dedicated drinks cabinet that feels like your own personal bar. Those feeling active can take advantage of the private gym and yoga space and there's a dedicated office fit for an executive should you need to work remotely.
Outside, you can spend sunny days playing ping pong on the deck, or just relaxing with a cold drink on plush rattan sofas while the kids keep busy on the sunken trampoline.
