WHAT THE OWNER SAYS:

"The thing that struck me when I first bought the upper maisonette 10 years ago was the feeling of light and space – it really is a beautiful, calming place where you can fully relax and feel at home. There is so much space that you feel like you are in a house, not a flat and the Victorian features like the stained glass window in the WC and the original banisters give it a charming character. Having created an open plan living room and kitchen 6 years ago and then adding sound proofing to the whole of the lower floor, we feel that we have modernised the maisonette so that it better fits a modern way of living.

The location is perfect as you can walk to everything - London Road is a 5 minute walk away, 15 minutes to the North Laines, 2 pubs just a stone’s throw away and 2 parks to choose from. It only takes 20 / 25 minutes to walk to Churchill Square but with everything you need on London Road such as shops, cafes, bars and restaurants, you’ll find that you won’t always need to venture into the centre of town."

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.
