WHAT THE OWNER SAYS:

"It's a secret oasis near the heart of Brighton. Like the Secret Garden story, you enter through a garden gate and come across a green and secluded area with fruit trees, flowers and a home allotment - and the bungalow. It's a 1930's build and getting older - like its owner. But it's in good working order and ready for changes - modernisation and a loft conversion could provide an extra bedroom, bathroom and lounge, subject to planning consent. Fiveways is an area with a good community feeling, with pubs, public transport, schools and shops all on the doorstep - and still walkable into town. I shall miss it."

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.
