At over 1800 square feet, this recently renovated Connaught Terrace house presents spacious accommodation in immaculate condition…ready to move in, no work required for its new owner to love and call home.
This gorgeous Victorian terraced house blends designer comfort with practical living and period charm. The owners have painstakingly restored this property with a contemporary theme, high-level craftsmanship and attention to detail, while preserving much of the building’s former heritage.
The property was fully refurbished in 2017, with extensions added to both the kitchen and loft. Planning approvals enabled an additional room in the loft making this one of the largest houses on the street.
You will notice this prevailing sense of space straight away as you are immediately impressed by the lofty ceilings of the entrance hall; a foyer which provides ample room for coats and shoes. The inner hallway opens into a bright and airy double-length living room. High ceilings edged with ornate coving and decorative ceiling roses, sash windows adorned with bespoke shutters, and a working fireplace to boot – there’s little you won’t like about this homely, yet stylish living area.
Steps lead down to the expansive kitchen providing a subtle yet highly effective separation from the living room. Vaulted ceilings and bi-fold doors in the kitchen look out onto a pristine, low maintenance garden. The kitchen is fitted with a carrera quartz worktop, ample cupboard space, intelligently designed so that it’s both highly functional and yet divinely modern. Underfloor heating, an abundance of light, room for a range cooker, large fridge/freezer and comfortable corner chairs, all serve to make this my favourite room in the house.
Heading past the downstairs cloakroom and under-stair storage, up to the first floor, you’ll find a bathroom and two double bedrooms. If you haven’t fallen in love with this house already, you will when you see the family bathroom. It is a superb size, and features an extra-large bath and separate, extra-large shower. Tastefully designed with a contemporary blend of ornate tiles and wood panelling, you will love this space, not least because there’s more underfloor heating! Did I say the kitchen was my favourite room in this house?
As you continue along the first floor landing, you will find a neatly placed storage area and plumbing for the washer and dryer – an inspired location for your white goods – another practical design feature of this house. Two spacious bedrooms are on this level, which includes the primary suite. Presented in immaculate order and complete with an en-suite shower room…it’s a rarity for houses of this kind in the area!
Up now to the second floor, where there are another three good-sized rooms. Each decorated immaculately, they are ideal for children, a guest room and/or a home office. The main bedroom on this level is a fantastic size, fitted with a plenty of storage in the eaves and basked in an abundance of natural light.
Outside, the garden features both a cherry and apple tree which bear fruit annually. Attracting the sun long into the afternoon, the garden is also fitted with low level lighting, providing a romantic aesthetic in the evening.
Connaught Terrace is fantastically convenient for both shops and restaurants of George Street and New Church Road, and neatly placed almost directly between the beach and Hove train station – both of which are a short walk away.

Finding a mortgage
Buying a house is a massive investment and getting it just slightly wrong can be costly. Unless you have big savings, chances are you’re going to have to get a mortgage. It’s a loan secured against the property which means if you can’t meet the repayments the lender may repossess your home and sell it to get their money back.
The better you understand mortgages and everything to do with them, the better armed you will be to get the very best deal. With MMR in place, you’ll need to review your finances themselves before approaching possible lenders to see whether you can afford the monthly payments now and if interest rates go up, which they will…
What is MMR?
When it comes to finding a mortgage you have several options: mortgage brokers, individual banks or searching online. Again, it’s important to do your research. Searching online first, gives you a good idea of what’s available, but an independent mortgage broker can provide a more in-depth search and help you through the process. Being independent holds great value as they are not bias to any particular lenders or deals, they will give you their honest opinion and take away the stress of working your way through the mortgage market, they work for you to find you the best package to suit your requirements.
