In a superb setting just east of Brighton, this property is in the ever-popular Roedean part of the city. It is the only spot in Brighton & Hove which offers large garden as well as commanding sea views. The property distinguishes itself by being set in a double plot of approximately 0.4 acres. It is elevated still further by being on the favoured southern side of the Crescent, affording it direct and expansive sea views from all the principal living areas, bedrooms and even from within the garden itself. There are four reception rooms, with the easterly room occupying the full depth of the house, but with the capacity to separate the space via a huge moving glass wall, into a formal dining-drawing room at the rear and a sitting room at the front.
Though the outside space is its standout feature, the interiors are also beautifully appointed with wooden beams, solid oak doors and premium fittings throughout. Comprising some 4222 sq ft this substantial family home offers a well-proportioned and flexible floorplan. With an open-plan design the kitchen also provides space for entertaining with the dining area looking directly out and benefiting from panoramic sea views. The kitchen is very well appointed in a contemporary style with granite worktops. Also on the ground floor is a generous separate utility room with further storage and plumbing for appliances and a separate study, also boasting views across the garden to the sae.
The five bedrooms are arranged together on the first floor, including an impressive master bedroom suite with large walk in wardrobe, further built-in storage, as well as an en-suite bathroom with bath and shower. Both the master suite and bedroom two exceptionally large, although none of the rooms are small. There are a further two en-suite bedrooms, one with bath, another with shower room, and a separate family bathroom shared by bedrooms four and five.
Roedean Crescent is situated to the east of Brighton city centre close to the plentiful attractions of Brighton Marina with captivating views to the sea. The seafront is just few moments' walk away including the pleasant Undercliff Walk which runs along the chalk cliffs of the coast. Further walking routes can be found locally on in the hills of the South Downs National Park. There are plentiful amenities and shops within the cosmopolitan centre of Brighton (3 miles) with superstore shopping and a number of restaurants and attractions closer within the marina complex (1 mile). The area is well connected with fast, direct train services leaving from Brighton station to London and Gatwick Airport, while Newhaven (4 miles) has cross-channel ferries. Local schools are well represented in both the state and independent sector including the renowned Roedean School just 1 mile away.
Exceptional sea views can be enjoyed from the rear gardens of the property, which offer a delightful south-westerly aspect across Roedean and the Channel beyond. With sliding doors opening from the reception rooms and kitchen the stone-paved patio provides a wonderful space for outdoor entertaining and offers a relaxing spot from which to enjoy the magnificent sunsets. Steps lead down to the lower level where there is a freeform outdoor swimming pool set within a terrace and encompassed by a lawn with a number of flowerbeds and borders stocked with mature plants. The garden also features a wooden shed, boat garage and a spacious summerhouse with a bar, shower room and sauna. The property is accessed from the front via an in-and-out driveway with high metal gates and a brick wall with inset railings. The brick-paved driveway affords parking for several cars with further space available within the double garages, fronted by attractive solid oak barn-style doors.
