Architecturally appealing with a coherent family layout, Hayworth House is an elegant contemporary home with expanses of space and luxury on one of Brighton & Hove’s premier streets. It is built over four storeys with views to the sea from the upper floors and the subterranean floor housing gym, office and cinema spaces. There is also off-street parking for two cars, a garage and a verdant southerly garden.
On the ground floor the spectacular spiral staircase takes centre stage in the entrance hall which also houses the guest cloakroom. Immediately ahead, double doors lead into the living room at the rear of the building, with access to a utility room at one side and the kitchen at the other. The kitchen itself is zoned into a raised breakfast dining area which has further access at the front of the house and a sophisticated modern kitchen beyond, whilst the lounge is offset to the rear. Bi-fold doors lead out to the patio area and the garden beyond.
The rooms in the lower floor are wonderfully versatile and are lit by natural daylight from roof lights. The largest could be a fantastic cinema room, huge office or generous gym and there is a utility/shower room at its rear. The other two rooms are also substantial and could serve as bedroom, games room, work-space, music studio or teenager’s den. The whole lower level is ventilated by an air exchange system so fresh air is circulated continuously. The first floor landing leads to three well-proportioned double bedrooms, all with en-suite shower rooms which have a cohesive theme but are all distinct.
The master bedroom has an impressive en suite with beautiful freestanding bath and walk-in shower, as well as a walk in wardrobe. The second floor houses a further double bedroom en-suite as well as terraces to the front and rear with the rear one commanding views over Hove to the sea. This room is wonderfully versatile once again and could be a secondary reception space or the ideal teens’ hideaway at the top of the house.
This superb property has been designed and built with care and thought. Little extra luxuries include under-floor heating throughout, “daylight” ceiling spotlights, robust yet beautiful Porcelanosa flooring, NEFF kitchen appliances and feature Ove wood burner from deluxe brand Invicta. Whilst the narrow profile aluminium double-glazed windows take advantage of the gorgeous outlook and perfuse the space with natural light, abundant eco credentials mean this is also an economic home to run.
From top to bottom, this skilfully crafted modern home is charming and elegant, a world away from more standard newly built homes, and it should absolutely be viewed to fully appreciate all of its wonderful facets.
