WHAT THE OWNER SAYS:

"We will be very sad to leave our lovely house in Shaftesbury Road. Coming from London we were pleasantly surprised by what a fantastic community it is in this part of town and have got to know all our neighbours. It has been very convenient for commuting to London as it is only a short ten minute walk to Brighton station and even less to nearby London Road. While we have been here, the area has gone from strength to strength with lots of fantastic restaurants and bars opening up. We have made the most of nearby Preston Park and the Level, particularly with small children. It is also very well located with nearby shops and easy parking; being central but also quiet and leafy.



We have put a great deal of effort into completely refurbishing the house itself to a really high standard, so that it has been a pleasure to live here. We have restored it sensitively, keeping the beautiful Victorian fixtures and fittings, whilst introducing all the modern comforts, like double glazing and underfloor heating! The house is incredibly light and bright and has such a lovely feel to it. Getting an architect to design our extension was worth every penny as it has been so carefully designed to incorporate both convenience and best use of space. We really couldn’t have asked for a better first home as a young couple starting a family over the last 8 years and we hope that all our hard work in making this such a fantastic home to live in, can now be happily enjoyed by someone else."

Area Guide

Fiveways is a family area. Outside of central Brighton but close enough to make town easily accessible, there are good schools, big houses and great parks.It's a village in itself. 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.
