In the heart of Brighton’s prestigious Golden Triangle sits this beautifully renovated four bedroom, two bathroom Victorian villa on the highly sought-after Waldegrave Road.
The property is located two streets away from the idyllic Blakers Park and award-winning Preston Park Tavern, and benefits from an electric charging point directly outside the property.
As you enter the property the Victorian charm is clear to see with high ceilings and period coving, set off with Amtico parquet flooring which runs throughout the entire ground floor.
The living room is to the front of the house and looks out to the quiet, tree lined street. This is a peaceful room with an original marble fireplace and bay windows that welcome in lots of natural light through the double shutters. The living room and dining room have been combined to create a really practical open plan space, featuring a play area that could also be used for formal dining. The custom-made furniture offers style and smart storage options.
Down the hallway there is a concealed downstairs cloakroom and storage cupboard under the stairs. The real showpiece of the home, however, is the wonderful kitchen diner. The current owners have renovated this room to the very last detail, with a handmade kitchen by Ditchling based Forest Designs. The cabinetry offers not only exquisite craftsmanship but plenty of storage with counter top cupboards and a full-length utility cupboard, which is ideal for hanging coats and storing house appliances. The stunning quartz worktop has been configured to allow for a handy breakfast bar, with a large dining area beyond. The bi-fold doors lead to a patio and the expansive South west facing garden.
Upstairs on the first floor there are three spacious bedrooms and the family bathroom. The sunny master bedroom is to the front, featuring a Victorian tiled fireplace. The second bedroom is a nice double room currently used as one of the children’s rooms and includes another period marble fireplace. The third bedroom is a really lovely double bedroom at the back of the house benefitting from a bay window that overlooks the garden. The family bathroom has been renovated to a wonderful standard with statement Mandarin Stone tiles and Villeroy & Boch appliances including a full length bath and walk-in shower.
Upstairs on the top floor the loft conversion has created a spacious double bedroom and en-suite shower room with Neptune furnishings. The dormer windows creates a practical space for a desk with far-reaching views over Brighton. There are also a number of cupboards providing concealed storage in the attic eaves. This is the perfect space for guests to stay or an ideal room for a growing teenager for example.
Waldegrave Road is located just a 15 minute walk to Preston Park Station and so is perfect for commuters looking for direct trains to London Bridge or London Victoria. Blakers Park is a stones throw away, while the larger Preston Park and Veledrome are also very close – ideal for a lunchtime stroll or cycle. The local schools both primary and secondary are second to none.
Overall this property is perfect for buyers looking for a stunning period home they can move into straight away, in one of the best locations in the Golden Triangle conservation area.

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.
