Western Esplanade – Portslade
Superb seafront residence with breathtaking views and contemporary interiors.
Number 4’s attractive, though admittedly unassuming exterior, with its unusual crenellated roofline, hides a simply stunning interior: contemporary yet comfortable, superbly appointed and beautifully presented throughout. The entire rear elevation is fitted with full height sliding glazed doors, opening to decked terraces from which the sea views are breathtaking. The property is situated in a tucked away location, with a private beach, and only a short distance from centre of the vibrant coastal City of Brighton and Hove.
Finished to a particularly high standard features include room-controlled under floor heating throughout (with the exception of the utility room); engineered oak flooring on the ground floor; a bespoke kitchen with range of integrated appliances; a Lutron lighting system; and a Control4 home automation system allowing computer-controlled music, radio and television in the main rooms of the house. The full extent of the accommodation spans three floors and 3,300 sq ft, perfect for family living and luxury entertaining alike. An internal viewing is recommended to appreciate the finish and spectacular seafront setting, with various features being of particular note.
Steps rise to an impressive reception hall from which an elegant oak staircase with glass balustrade and gallery rises to the first floor. Lying off the hall is the media room, which has access to a small private courtyard to the front of the house.
Double doors open from the hall to the open plan sitting room, dining area and family room; a magnificent space with expanse of sliding glass doors opening to the terrace allowing panoramic sea views from almost every part of the room. The sitting room area features an open fireplace with carved limestone surround; the family room is partially screened creating a cosy space also having a small gas fire.
The kitchen is fitted with a range of bespoke, streamline units by Windmill Kitchens of Sussex, complemented by Silestone worktops and breakfast bar and an extensive range of integrated appliances including a Miele barbeque and Hibatchi grill.
There are four bedrooms on the first floor lying off the galleried landing, including one currently used as a study and a fantastic principal suite, comprising a beautiful bedroom with outstanding views and access to the roof top terrace, a luxurious bathroom with freestanding roll top bath, a separate WC and a dressing room with range of fitted storage.
The decked terrace spans the entire rear of the property and has a heated plunge pool and shower, lighting and speakers, and steps leading down to the pebbled private beach. There is a single garage situated in the block to the west of the house.
