A beautiful and unique detached house comprising of four double bedrooms, two spacious and bright living rooms, stunning kitchen/dining room, utility room, ensuite bathroom, family bathroom and garage. Exceptional wrap around south/west facing gardens and terrace. This architectural beauty was constructed in 2014 and it certainly stands out from the crowd. Strong horizontal lines give the building an imposing stature and modern finish. The approach to the house is impressive, passing well-tended lawns contained in white bordered terraces down to the front door with a chic glass porch. Inside, you step into a bright and airy hallway with gleaming oak flooring and where the ceiling rises to the full height of the roof above your head. To your left is a spacious room, which is the first of the double bedrooms, ideally placed for guest room, teenager space, or home office. South facing kitchen and living room, which flow into one another. The practical oak floor continues into this large light space, with ample room for sofas and a dining table with large picture windows to three sides. The south west wall is almost entirely glass with floor to ceiling doors folding right out making the large paved sun terrace part of this entertaining space. To the left of the French doors in the south wall, the kitchen area is defined by a dove grey breakfast bar. Custom built kitchen with fitted units in high gloss grey, grey quartz stonework surfaces. Induction hob with steel and glass extractor above and double oven. The kitchen is well designed with the sink and dishwasher nicely placed opposite and beneath windows looking across the slope of the lawn. Outside, the garden is large and zoned, with the paved sun terrace leading around to the lawns which wrap around this home, stepping up the hill with geometric precision and all with wonderful far reaching views across Brighton to the sea - reminding you just how close to the coast you are here. Carpeted stairs with glass balustrades wind their way up to the first floor which feels wonderfully spacious and light - again due to substantial glazing on all sides. There are two sumptuous bedrooms; one with plush grey carpet underfoot and both with stylish feature walls and light fittings. A chic family bathroom with large grey tiles sits between the two with a dual end bath cleverly positioned in the eaves and a roomy shower for when time is of the essence. At the end of the hallway is the spacious master bedroom, with stunning views through the Velux windows and there is a walk-in wardrobe with an automatic light. The en suite is on the right, simply but stylishly decorated and which has a contemporary white suite and shower mixer taps on the bath. The property has 5 years remaining on its building warranty making this an exceptional family home. Garage and off street parking for two vehicles.The owner comments "This has been a wonderful home for us - particularly when entertaining in the summer when the garden becomes a fantastic extension of the home. As commuters, the location of the station has been brilliant, and we have loved being equidistant between the city and the countryside as you get the best of both worlds."

The property is moments from the open spaces of Blakers Park, Preston Park and close to The South Down National Park. The famous Brighton Laines & beach are within walking distance. Artist open houses run through the spring months along with summer fairs and street parties in Blakers Park and surrounding streets with a fantastic local community. Looking for an evening out?

Excellent local shops including Flower Pot delicatessen and Tilt serving the best coffee and scrumptious things. Preston Park station is close by with a direct link to Victoria accessible in less than one hour, perfect for commuters. Further good transport links directly to London from Brighton mainline station.
