Relax beneath exotic palms in the sunny garden of this picturesque two bedroom Victorian house tucked away from the crowds who flock to our famous coastal resort, but with the vibrant al fresco lifestyle of the North Laine around the corner. Far bigger than its neat exterior suggests, three bright storeys deliver a sociable lifestyle with restful period charm. Solid wood underfoot, high ceilings and big windows -which are double glazed-make this quiet home pet, child and guest friendly, and on the lower floor a stylish kitchen diner opens to a garden level with the room, a feature hard to find in a city nestled on the South Downs. A 10 minute walk to the beach, the ground floor is ideal for work or play with scope to create a third bedroom or home office and upstairs, both bedrooms are doubles and neither are directly overlooked. With the station to the airports, Portsmouth and London a four minute stroll, this exciting location attracts professionals, families and international investors.
With a cheerful east/west orientation, this inviting house has an irresistible blend of style and charm from the delightful, painted front to the exotic sun trap at the back. Inside, the hallway has space for coats and a door into the living room – but the ground floor has also been knocked through further along to create a light and airy reception with windows at each end. There is about 20'4'' x 14'11'' to play with (6.2m x 4.5m) and a wide framework for central doors, should you wish to create a third bedroom or private home office.
Downstairs, the fuss free approach continues in the stylish kitchen diner, which also spans the house from front to back with an east wall where sets of glazed doors frame the exotic planting of the garden. Inside, the dining area has triple cupboards to reach the ceiling – which remains high- as well as storage space beneath the stairs, and it is open to the sociable kitchen which is safely tucked away from the in/out flow at the front of the building. With a Mediterranean flavour thanks to blonde units and beautiful continental tiles underfoot, a central hob and oven beneath a high window are between two runs which provide ample working surfaces. Plumbing is in place for two machines and there is designated space for a tall fridge freezer, which could stay subject to circumstance.
Outside, the walled garden is perfect for the sunny al fresco lifestyle enjoyed by our vibrant seaside metropolis, and unusually, it is level with the house as well as child and pet secure. Adorned by two magnificent palms – which we are told only grow up, not down avoiding root issues- it is party perfect, paved with built in seating to each side which has lighting installed above it. Returning inside, the bathroom is a modern classic in blue and white, and has all you need including a shower above the eco bath and heated rail for hanging swimsuits after a day on the beach.
Up on the first floor, the landing is bright and cheerful with access to the large attic giving food for thought, a large closet and useful cloakroom. Made private by those fabulous palms, the first of the double bedrooms is a secret escape with calm decoration and at the front, the principal bedroom is a peaceful sanctuary which is also ready to move into. Perfect.
"This thriving area of our world famous city attracts both national and international buyers, and just 4 minutes from the station and 10 from the beach it is also suitable for families as there's a good primary and a park nearby."
"We love the contrast between the old, neat looking building outside and the Tardis like interior, ideal for entertaining. Foundry Street provided homes for those working at The Regent Iron and Brass Foundry and you do feel a sense of history in this street of well- kept characterful properties. For the fashionable location it is surprisingly quiet and in the summer, we have enjoyed being able to retreat from the world in the garden."
