Located on the doorstep of the vibrant Preston Circus/London Road area, this 3 storey period property would make a wonderful family home. As you enter the property the hallway displays original coving and period features with wooden floors leading into spacious living/dining area following through to a modern kitchen with integrated appliances and door to rear garden and utility room. There is also a useful modern family bathroom off the hallway and then up to the first floor you will find a separate W/C possibly large enough for a shower room, 2 double bedrooms, the first with a large bay window and period fire place. The other good sized double bedroom overlooks the rear garden. The second floor also consists of 2 further similar sized double bedrooms, a spacious double across the front and fitted wardrobes in the rear bedroom which also overlooks the landscaped south/west facing patio at the rear. A large loft area completes the property which could be converted subject to necessary consent. Just a stones throw away from Brighton and London Road stations, this property has easy access to the A23 and A27 and perfectly placed for the beach and North Laines. Energy Rating C70.
What the owner says: 'I have lived in quite a few houses in my life. From flats in West
London and Tuscany, to houses in Brixton and Brighton. Clyde Road
is my favourite by some margin. To begin with this is the first house
my wife and I chose together, and for that it will always hold a special
place in my heart. It is also the first place in Brighton
where I have truly felt at home. It is spacious, light and airy, and thanks to
our solar panels cheap to run; our electricity and gas bills come to
around £100.00pa, as we get paid for all the solar electricity we generate,
on average £800 over the year.
The little patio outside is south facing and in the spring and summer
stays warm late into the evenings, so we can sit outisde, read and sip
wine. But what really makes the house special is the location.
The Clyde Road area finds itself at the precise geographic heart of
Brighton, a minute's walk from London Road Station, a mere seven
minutes from Brighton Mainline station, 15 minutes from the Laines and
just 20 minutes to the seafront, it's close to shops, supermarkets and
bars so the house allowed us both to enjoy Brighton in ways we never had
done before. Just to our north we have the beautiful Preston Park,
with its football pitches and tennis courts and secret walled
garden. To our immediate south there is the Level and its scatepark
and the Old Steine. We are surrounded by green, and yet completely
central. The area is also a true community. As someone who grew up in
London I had never really understood what this meant. But here people
really do say good morning to one another. And the road is so quiet
that locals will often oraganise street theatre or water pistol fights
for the local kids, blocking off the whole of the adjacent Shaftesbury
Road for part of the day. Easily possible because there is hardly any

There's a traditional greengrocer, butcher & deli, with plenty of green space nearby – Blakers Park, Preston Park and access to the South Downs via Ditchling Road.Fiveways is where people come to settle down in a family home, but still want everything Brighton has to offer.Read more
