Property Description

Hidden behind wooden gates and an attractive brick & flint wall, this SUBSTANTIAL FAMILY HOUSE was built circa 1853 and has many ORIGINAL FEATURES, including attractive cornicing to most rooms, ceiling roses, STAINED GLASS WINDOWS, wooden doors, and some SASH WINDOWS WITH SHUTTERS. Set over 4 floors and offering a lower ground floor apartment which would be ideal for family members as an annexe, the property is a real find particularly as it is CLOSE TO PRESTON PARK and Preston Park Railway Station and town centre. The house has been owned by the same family for several years and is IN NEED OF SOME UPDATING, offering the opportunity to create a fantastic home. Energy Rating: D66 Exclusive to Maslen Estate Agents

We've loved living in this beautiful house and its lovely garden, which is a delight to come home to every day. The accommodation has suited our extended family home-and-work set up for 18 years, but now we need to downsize and pass over stewardship to someone else. It's perfect location so near to Preston Park, it's station and buses into town will be hard to replicate, and the dog will miss chasing the squirrels.

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.
