Tongdean Road, Hove, East Sussex, BN3
AN OUTSTANDING DETACHED HOME SKILLFULLY IMPROVED TO AN IMPECCABLE STANDARD LOCATED ON A HIGHLY DESIRABLE QUIET ROAD IN HOVE; BENEFITTING FROM A LARGE DRIVEWAY AND A SPECTACULAR SOUTH EAST FACING GARDEN WITH A SWIMMING POOL.
The combination of a white façade against dark roof tiles, and matching windows presents a striking asymmetric frontage. A private driveway accommodates up to three vehicles and is bordered on each side by identical brick planters housing mature shrubbery; the relevant permissions have been acquired to install electronic gates, should any future resident wish to do so. Delightful plantation shutters make for a uniform and up-to-the-minute approach. Upon entering the property, a generous foyer runs the entire depth of the house with a full-length window overlooking the garden drawing in light and inviting you further in to this captivating home. Ingenious porcelain wood effect flooring flows through the majority of the ground floor creating a continuity throughout and offering a durable material to support outdoor living whilst maintaining internal finery.
To the front is the winter living room, bold shades of matt brown contrast with brilliant white accents to create intimate setting to put to put your feet up and truly relax. A functioning gas fire with a gorgeous white surround is the real heart of the room. Across the hallway the space has been cleverly altered to incorporate three very handy additional rooms. Behind door number one, the garage has been shrewdly modified to house a smaller storage area perfect for bikes and outdoor accessories as well as neatly hiding away a range of gadgets including a water pressure booster and full camera system. The other portion of the room has been adapted to include an invaluable utility room with a full-sized Belfast sink, floor-to-ceiling in-built cupboards, ample countertop space, drawers and shelving. Adjacent is a nifty ground floor w/c decorated in playful tropical wallpaper. Adjoining is the boot room, a distinct space for housing all your outdoor wears handily offering side access. A spacious and versatile ground floor room is currently utilised as a home office; a valuable asset for those continuing to work from home, a notable glass wall truly opens up the space and looks over a small landscaped wild flower meadow area.
A considerable rear extension has been added to the property establishing a large open plan living area with a defined cooking, dining and sitting area. Fastidious attention to detail has been given to this entirely welcoming space. The hand painted solid oak bespoke kitchen has been fully fitted with all the opulence of smart living; a quartz topped central island distinguishes the cooking area whilst simultaneously providing an informal breakfasting spot and housing extra cupboard space, two dishwashers and a butler sink with still and sparkling water available straight from the tap. A fantastic range of wall mounted and under counter cupboards wrap around this part of the room achieving a flush finish providing discrete space for kitchenware and produce. An inbuilt wine cooler is a great addition particularly useful when entertaining. The suitably placed dining area sits in front of a full-length window with drop lighting drawing attention to the space. A relaxed sitting area is framed on one side by a full-size glass wall and on the other sliding doors with a contemporary integrated gas fire unifying this gorgeous family room.
The staircase runs up from the entrance hall and provides access to all first-floor rooms from the landing. There are three bedrooms on the first floor two sharing access to a modern Jack and Jill bathroom with rainfall walk-in shower and a freestanding bathtub. A master bedroom suite encompasses the entire right side of first floor and is decorated in a sumptuous warm colour palette with an attractive bay window pulling in natural light. A natural flow carries on to a luxurious walk-in wardrobe with plush lighting options and an abundance of built-in wardrobes. Leading on to the en-suite bathroom, pristinely presented and fitted with underfloor heating; a glorious addition to ease those crisp December mornings.
The second floor has wonderful views of the sea and coastline and is occupied by two further double bedrooms each has a great amount of eaves storage and again shares access to a contemporary style Jack and Jill bathroom. Velux windows are staged above the freestanding tub building upon the intelligent use of light that features throughout this superior family home.
