Knight & Knoxley are delighted to be marketing this unique property on Crescent Road. It is extremely rare to find a property with gardens of this size in such a central location. Furthermore, this exceptional property, which appears, when viewed from Crescent Road, to be a modest terraced house, extends behind the terrace, has a reception room over six metres in length and in total covers over 250 square metres. There is a garden room, used as a work-from-home space, set in the beautiful garden that wraps around three sides of the rear part of the house. There is also a self-contained one-bedroom flat on the same title, which has its own front door on the street. There is clearly scope here for the property to be developed and for the flat and the main house to be connected internally, subject to the necessary consents. Alternatively, the current configuration may be perfect for a family wanting spaces from which to work at home, or artist studios, and a self-contained flat, which could of course provide a rental income. There are so many possibilities, and this property really does need to be viewed to understand the potential and to fully appreciate the space.
The main house is currently accessed via the garage at the front of the property. From here you enter an enormous reception room of over 24 square metres, with wooden flooring and windows to the garden at the side of the house. This room in turn leads to another large but cosy sitting room at the back of the property. The sitting room has two sets of double doors onto the garden, one at the rear, and the other to the side of the house. Two original fireplaces remain in place and there are stripped wooden floors. This part of the house has the charm of a two-bedroom cottage, you can imagine yourself in a rural location, as there are gardens all around and you are by now completely removed from the road at the front of the building. A lovely kitchen/breakfast room, off the sitting room, has windows on three sides overlooking the gardens. This room has a country kitchen style, with a parquet floor and exposed beams overhead. From the sitting room, there is a door to the stairs, leading to the first-floor bedrooms. Upstairs, the property retains its cottage feel, with stripped pine doors, and wooden floors in the main bedroom. The second bedroom is a good double and has a beautiful view over the garden and the rooftops to the sea. The main house has double glazing throughout.
The self-contained flat is accessed from Crescent Road and has its own front door alongside the double garage doors. Stairs climb to the first floor, where the flat is situated. To your right, as you enter, there is good size kitchen/breakfast room with a glazed door onto the flat roof. From the kitchen, there is a door to the reception room at the front of the house, which has a large bay window with three sashes and a further single sash, all overlooking Crescent Road. The bathroom and separate WC are accessed off the hall and the double bedroom is at the rear. The flat has been providing a rental income for the current owners.
Crescent Road runs between Prince’s Crescent and Prince’s Road, tucked away in a residential enclave off Ditchling Road. Although you will be living in a quiet street, this is a fantastic central location, from where you can easily walk to the North Laine or to Brighton Station. London Road station is even closer, only a five-minute walk. A short stroll to The Level brings you to a park with a café, playground, and a fantastic skate park. At Preston Circus, the much-loved Brighton cinema, The Duke of York's Picture House, screens a fantastic variety of films throughout the week. There are great local pubs including the Open House, Signal Man, and the Roundhill, all close by. The Roundhill is notable as it has an entirely vegan kitchen serving award-winning plant-based meals.
