A gorgeous and substantial family home, situated on the charming, tree lined Withdean Road. Full of character inside and out, with breath-taking vistas over the City and South Downs, this is a truly magnificent ‘forever home’.
The house is somewhat deceptive…from the exterior it implies the property is arranged over two floors, however as soon as you step inside, you are immediately struck by its overall internal space, particularly as you descend the spiral stair case the two further levels, ‘below deck’.
The entrance hallway draws you in with its far reaching views that are captured from both the kitchen and living room. Not only does this allow for plenty of natural light throughout the day, but presents a wonderful feeling of privacy and seclusion, being nestled within the winding hills of ‘Withdean’.
The living and dining area spans the full length of the house, providing a fantastic sense of space and a myriad configurations. There is currently a large dining room, ideal for hosting your dinner parties on the weekends and flows through to the spacious living area. This is complete with doors leading out to one of the many terraces, a lovely spot to relax on.
The separate kitchen features a large central island and a wealth of marble worktop and surface space. With a range of integrated ‘mile’ appliances and the obvious gorgeous views, this is certainly a kitchen you won’t tire off. From here you can access the lower levels of this home, via a sliding door and staircase. There is also internal access to the double width garage. Also on this floor there is a separate reception room, ideal for a home office and a separate W.C.
As you arrive to the first floor landing you will appreciate its spaciousness and richness of light. Here there are five bedrooms and three bathrooms. The principle is a great size and complete with a modern en-suite shower room. As a matter of fact, all bedrooms are of a fantastic size and each with their own unique features. The three bedrooms at the rear offer a peaceful sense, with delightful elevated views. The fifth bedroom is also a comfortable double, with the family bathroom finished in a clean and crisp contemporary design.
Leading downstairs, this is where the house gets really exciting! As you arrive to the bottom of the first stair case, there is a gallery with a window which looks into to your ‘official’ size indoor squash court! From here a passageway also leads you out to the garden with an additional W.C. Leading down another set of stairs is a Swedish sauna, a home gym area and the entrance to the squash court itself.
Externally the house has a number of terrace areas, where you can enjoy the sun at all times of the day. There are beautiful arches which is a lovely aesthetic, great for cooling off in the summer months or, (STNC) could be reconfigured to offer more internal functional space. The lawn stretches across the width of the house, which is extremely private and easily maintained.
This house is truly unique with some very special features throughout, whilst being situated on one of the most premium roads within Brighton and Hove.

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.
