Striking architect-designed modern house with far-reaching sea views and landscaped garden. Guide price £2,650,000 - £2,750,000.
35 Roedean Road is an exceptional modern house, designed by award-winning architects Denizen Works in collaboration with the current owners, and completed in 2020. The house, which featured in Grand Designs magazine July 2023, has a striking exterior, with Japanese-style Shou Sugi Ban charred timber and terracotta tile hung elevations; a solid, large dark timber pivot door creates a memorable entrance. The interiors offer spacious rooms, designed with flair and thought, and finished with high quality, stylish fittings.
The principal rooms are arranged on the southern elevation, with large sliding doors framing the far-reaching sea views. White walls create a wonderful sense of space, and emphasise the clean architectural lines and generous proportions of this wonderful family home.
All bathrooms have been individually designed and beautifully finished; many are fitted with Cielo ceramic sinks and Vola taps.
The house has excellent eco-credentials, with an air source heat pump powering the hot water and the underfloor heating, which can be thermostatically controlled room by room; the house has been insulated to high standard.
The impressive reception hall sets the scene, with a beautiful terrazzo tiled floor, bespoke solid oak staircase and a soaring atrium set with a skylight ensuring natural light. Double pocket doors can be opened up to frame the vista through the open plan reception room and terrace, across the landscaped gardens to the marina and sea beyond.
The 42' open plan reception room is ideally suited for both day-to-day family life and for entertaining, zoned into sitting room, dining room and kitchen, and with Solarlux sliding doors opening to the terrace, creating a wonderful space for entertaining against the striking backdrop. The terrazzo tiled flooring carries from the hallway through the reception room and terrace, creating a seamless flow between inside and out.
The contemporary kitchen is well-equipped with an excellent range of bespoke cabinets, handcrafted from blackened oak and complemented by ceramic worktops and brass tap; there is a central island with a breakfast bar.
A pocket door leads to the utility/boot room, also fitted with bespoke blackened oak cabinetry, and giving space for an American-style fridge/freezer, washing machine and tumble dryer; there is a door providing secondary access to the front drive, ideal for deliveries and informal access.
The study is also fitted with bespoke joinery, and has an interior window framing the sea views and high quality engineered oak flooring, which is also fitted to much of the remainder of the house. A cloakroom, with a walk-in shower completes the ground floor.
There are five bedrooms situated on the first floor. Three share access to the blackened timber balcony with glass balustrade that spans the southern elevation of the house, creating a superb spot to sit and enjoy the views to the marina and sea.
Two of the bedrooms are en suite, with a stylish family bathroom serving the three remaining rooms.
The two rooms to the front offer versatility: one has been soundproofed and could be used as a music room, and the other could be used as a gym or study.
The principal bedroom suite occupies the entire second floor, and has the very best views of the marina and seascape beyond. The bedroom has its own private balcony, and is open to the dressing, which is also used a study. The luxurious en suite bathroom is marble tiled, with a pair of Cielo sinks, CP Hart freestanding bath, and a walk in shower. There is substantial eaves storage.
The floorplans offer an excellent overview of the property and should be used as a guide to the full layout.
No 35 is set slightly back from the road, behind a rendered wall set with a secure, electronically operated gate, which opens to the gravelled driveway offering parking for several vehicles ahead of the house, and gated side access to the rear garden.
Further parking and the double garage is accessed at the rear of the property, via The Cliff; the garaging offers potential to be reconfigured and extended to create further storage space or possibly a home office or gym. There is a gate to the rear garden from The Cliff.
At the rear of the house, the expansive terrazzo terrace offers plenty of space for table, chairs and sun loungers; steps lead down to garden, which has been cleverly landscaped, making use of mature planting and well-stocked beds to provide screening and privacy at the boundary, with a central lawn. The garden offers space to add a summer house or home office.

An incredible house to relax, live and entertain in. The top floor principal bedroom suite is one of the most impressive I've seen, with a lovely balcony and direct sea views.Rohan VinesProperty agent
