A glorious, double-fronted period home over four floors just off Brighton's main high street, number forty-five Norfolk Road is an oasis in the city centre. Additional rooms in the lower ground floor (with own separate entrance) could provide a home with an income, or alternatively be used as an annexe or gym area. With space, light and period features in abundance, this six bedroom, four bathroom, three reception room house offers the perfect juxtaposition of city living and family life.
Beyond its black wrought-iron adorned crisp white frontage is a versatile layout. The front door opens onto the hallway which leads to all the ground floor rooms and to the upper floors. On the left is a splendid, front-to-back sitting room with beautiful, working, Italian marble feature fireplace and double doors out onto a wide courtyard garden. On the right is a further reception room, currently used as a music room and study. Behind this is the extended kitchen-diner naturally lit by a large feature skylight and full width bi fold doors. The courtyard itself is wonderfully secluded and is bordered by an attractive flint-stone wall and pretty planting.
The first floor has two well-proportioned double bedrooms at the front, one of which has a lovely en-suite bathroom. At the rear are a smaller double bedroom, a utility/drying room and a well-presented family bathroom. French doors on the landing open onto an elegant Juliet balcony which overlooks the quiet one-way street outside – the perfect place for a spot of people watching!
The top floor has two further ample double bedrooms with bathroom between – the ideal teenagers/guest bedrooms with a floor entirely to themselves. A loft ladder provides access to a flat roof space which could, subject to the relevant consents, be used as a roof terrace with views over the rooftops down to the sea. On the lower ground floor is a one bedroom flat with its own street entrance. It is still part of the main house, accessible via an internal staircase and lockable door, so could very easily be reincorporated if required.
Throughout this super property the decor is neutral, with principally wooden and tiled floors underfoot and lovely wooden plantation shutters embellishing the majority of the windows. The property works perfectly as it is but has wonderful scope for different arrangements to suit almost any option.
Brighton seafront is at the bottom of the next block less than a third of a mile distant, whilst shopping, café's, restaurants and bars are abundant and literally just round the corner. Brighton mainline train station with its direct rail links to London is under 1 mile away on foot.
