Unique 6 bed, 4 bath whopping 255 sqm wonder of a living space with the most gorgeous private south facing garden in Central Hove. Hidden from view built on the historic former Wick Farm this beauty has a large self-contained studio flat with a private entrance. Off-road parking for many cars. 5 Bedrooms in the main house plus the studio. Over the road from an amazing primary school. The large garden has many areas to sit and enjoy different perspectives. There's a large terrace for social functions. 

Set in the grounds of what was the Wick Farm Estate, this wonderful sizeable family home is sure to put a smile on your face. Full of charm and character with massive room sizes - it will make you question the concept of a Bungalow! Why? ...  because it's a blooming big house - twice the size of many a family home! You don't expect such a sizeable plot with a long gravel driveway, large garage, studio Annexe and massive south-facing garden right in the middle of town! Another striking factor is how quiet and peaceful the secluded garden is. It feels like the peace of the suburbs or semi-rural living but in the vibrant heart of a metropolis. So the location is perfect, close to the seafront and city centre, yet in a calm quiet oasis. Great schools, easy walking access to both Brighton and Hove stations. Western Road and Church Road's fine array of restaurants, bars, boutique shops etc are so close to hand.

Inside the entrance hall is grand and sets a splendid tone. High ceilings lovely period features, fireplaces - log burner! and that's just the hall!  The living room is vast with another gorgeous feature fireplace. Fabulously high ceiling, double aspect bay windows facing south & west, picture rails - perfect! The kitchen is suitably impressive and well spec'd - Chef will not be disappointed. It's super sociable with the large island and bench seating working well as a dining area. Off the hall, we have a beautiful contemporary shower room and a separate toilet. Leaving the studio aside for a moment, there are two double bedrooms on the ground floor Bedroom 4 (as we are calling it on the floor plan) is a lovely bright 20 sqm affair flooded with natural light thanks to the huge south-facing windows. Bedroom 5 is a good-sized double currently used for other purposes. The ground floor is also home to two monster cupboards - storage is not an issue here my friends.

So the studio is a great size with well designed bathroom and kitchen area. Accessed by a separate entrance perfect as a separate dwelling for lodgers, carers, holiday lets, students, elderly relatives etc etc.

Upstairs we have three more wonderfully spacious double bedrooms all with great storage, one served by an ensuite. The family bathroom caters well for the other two bedrooms. We love the exposed brick and period fireplace. Lovers of a soak will be very happy with the freestanding designer bath. Shower fans will not feel neglected and appreciate the large screened shower.
