Bristol Gardens No 22

This luxurious four bedroom home designed by Guinness Homes is tucked away in a quiet development behind Sussex Square only minutes from shops, cafes and the seafront. In the grounds of a former convent, this exceptional house combines eco sensitivity with glamour and has a private patio and allocated parking, a rare combination in this exclusive location close to the Marina and Kemp Town Village with its hospital and popular Brighton College.

This unique terrace leads up to a former, turreted Benedictine convent and the architect has been careful not to destroy the character of the historic grounds by creating peaceful inner courtyards which as well as providing parking and cycle stores are also attractive as they are planted with trees. A wild life pond adds to the relaxed atmosphere and this smart house is found on the left hand side beyond the remote controlled entrance gates, decorated with fruit and badgers and secured by a video entry system.

Inside, the broad hallway has smooth wooden effect flooring and a high ceiling. To the right is a chic guest cloakroom and opposite is a big cupboard for coats, boots and bags. Ahead, the glamorous L shaped living room has two walls of glass, the spacious living area looking over the garden whilst the west wall by the dining area folds completely open into the stylish patio which has lighting already in place for al fresco suppers. Behind you, the bright kitchen is tucked away in its own space, so that although it is sociable, it doesn’t dominate the living area and with two levels of lighting, you can set the mood. The gas hob and electric oven are integrated for you as are the dishwasher and washing machine and there are plenty of chic cream units, chosen for their reflective qualities with ample chocolate coloured work surfaces.

The expert quality of finish continues upstairs in the luxurious bathroom which is soothingly decorated in natural tones and has a shower above the bath. To the left, the fourth bedroom is light and airy with surprisingly leafy views for this convenient location and across the hallway, the private master bedroom has a fabulous sun terrace, facing west for the evening sun and as it is partly screened from next door and has discreet lighting, is ideal for quiet romantic moments when the children are in bed. Like the rest of this stylishly decorated home, it is ready to move into with fitted wardrobes and a glamorous shower room en suite. Up on the top floor, the second bedroom has a velux window in the roof space and across the hallway, the third bedroom is also vaulted and has restful views over the adjacent tree lined street.
