A substantial detached family house in wonderful elevated position with sea views.
19 Tongdean Road is an impressive detached house occupying an elevated position. The property was built by the current owners in 2001, and offers a substantial footprint and over 5,500 sq ft of accommodation arranged over three floors, plus 827 sq ft garaging/storerooms, with many rooms having spectacular views across the city to the sea.
The property offers scope for updating and improvement, subject to the necessary permissions and consents. The floorplans, together with the accommodation list give an excellent over of the full extent of the current layout, which is ideally suited for both family life and for entertaining on a grand scale: a formal drawing room with a stone fireplace adjoins the music room and is complemented by a sitting room, which is open to the conservatory. At the other end of the spacious reception hall lies the dining room, with a bow window framing the garden views. Beyond lies the 34 ft kitchen/dining room, which is well-equipped with bespoke wall-hung and under-counter cabinets and granite surfaces, a range cooker and a good range of integrated appliances. The kitchen has double doors to a family room, providing an excellent space for day to day life, and is served by a utility room with access to the terrace. A spacious study, with views over the gardens and fitted cupboards and shelves, and a cloakroom complete the ground floor.
From the reception hall, the staircase sweeps up to a galleried landing with a window seat. The principal suite comprises a large bedroom, en suite bathroom with corner jet bath and separate shower cubicle and a fully fitted dressing room with far-reaching views. There are four further bedrooms (two en suite) and a family bathroom on the first floor; two further en suite bedrooms occupy the second floor.
No 19 is approached from Tongdean Road by a secure gate open to a paved driveway ahead of the house, which offers off street parking for several cars. A second pair of gates open to give access to the garaging and cellar storage beneath the house; these rooms offer enormous potential for conversion (STPP).
A large decked terrace spans the rear elevation, providing ample space for table and chairs, and creating a fantastic space for entertaining outdoors. Steps lead down to the terraced garden, which is arranged on two levels and mainly laid to lawn with a timber shed and low level lighting. The garden is fully enclosed and well-screened with panelled fencing either side and mature trees planted at the rear boundary.
There is gated side access to the front. The plot extends in all to about 0.29 of an acre.
