About this property

  • Originally built in the 1930s, 5 Princes Crescent is a fine and substantial detached family house with white rendered elevations under a clay tiled roof.

    It is situated in a prime location with off street parking, in Hove's Pembroke & Princes Conservation area, a short distance from the city centre, Hove station, and close to the seafront and Hove Lagoon.

    The house was extended and comprehensively improved in 2007, and offers over 3,700 sq ft of well-proportioned, stylish accommodation, arranged over three floors and ideally suited to modern family life.

    The scene is set by the spacious entrance hall, which has floorboards painted in a striking chequer pattern, and a door opening to the comfortable sitting room, with a wood burning stove and fitted shelving. Beyond lies a superb open plan living area comprising a large family room with exposed beams and a wood burning stove, a dining room with bi-fold doors to the terrace, and a bespoke kitchen by Hartley Quinn Wilson, featuring an excellent range of painted wooden under-counter cabinetry, granite surfaces, space for a gas range cooker and a central island with an integrated dishwasher.

    To the rear is a large games room, with garden access, a well-equipped utility room also with garden access and a cloakroom.

    On the first floor, all the bedrooms have sea views. The dual aspect master bedroom is situated at the front of the house, and has the benefit of a large south facing balcony and an en suite bathroom.

    There are four further bedrooms on the first floor, served by a bathroom and a separate shower room.

    On the second floor, the stunning loft guest bedroom has an en suite bathroom and access to the eaves storage. From this room, a reduced height doorway opens up to a fully boarded loft room, also accessed via ladder from bedroom four.

    Please refer to the floorplans for a full overview of the layout and extent of the house.

    The property is set behind a tall rendered wall, with a pair of solid oak gates opening to the off street parking and the detached garage, and a pedestrian gate opening to the steps to the front door.

    The detached garage has oak doors and power connected. A gate opens to the fully enclosed rear garden, which is predominantly south-east facing and mainly laid to lawn with established shrubs and herbaceous borders. A brick paved terrace offers space for table and chairs.

    There is a detached office with power and heating at the end of the garden.

    The plot extends in all to about a fifth of an acre.

It really is special seeing the view from the bedrooms; I can't stress just how brilliant the location of this house is either - just a short walk to both the seafront and to Hove's bars and restaurants as well.
