  • Bedrooms: 4
This 4 bedroom detached home is situated in the popular Hove Park area. The property is set back from the road behind a secluded front garden, partly laid to lawn, with a large adjacent driveway providing off-street parking for 4+ cars. The drive leads to a detached and fully insulated garage with workshop rooms and a separate cloakroom

The front door opens onto an entrance hallway leading to the centre of the house. On the left at the front is a large southerly aspected dining room and family room, whilst at the back the modern kitchen overlooks the rear garden. A good size utility room with loads of useful storage sits between the two. The hall turns right and leads to two ground floor double bedrooms and a family bathroom with a separate shower and bath. At the end of the main hall is a multi-functional spacious lobby area with handy cupboards and a guest cloakroom. Beyond this is the extended part of the house which has the “wow” factor in the shape of a generous dual aspect living room with a vaulted ceiling, oak wood flooring and glazed double doors opening onto the sheltered patio and garden beyond. The lobby also leads up to the first floor and two bright double bedrooms, a shower room, further WC and loads of eaves storage. The well proportioned rear garden is mainly lawned and is nicely secluded from neighbouring properties with the patio tucked cosily between the living room and garage creating a private courtyard. The garden slopes almost imperceptibly away from the house meaning it gets lots of sun at all times of year. A large shed and playhouse provide further storage and kids area.

The house offers scope for enlargement if required (subject to the necessary consents); many of the neighboring houses have been extensively extended. However, it also works wonderfully as it is: the parking, layout and garden size are ideal for a family or for downsizers wanting living on one level, with the upper floor offering the ideal kids or guest accommodation. There are highly-rated private and state schools, both primary and secondary in the vicinity, with Lancing College Prep almost immediately opposite.
