Victorian house in a friendly family community within 10 minutes of city centre and South Downs - Brighton home swap
A beautifully renovated Victorian House within a conservation area, with sea views, close to two parks, one of which is largest urban park in the city, complete with children's playground, cricket and football pitches, tennis courts, basketball courts and a velodrome.
Spacious bedrooms over two floors comprise:
Master bedroom - a very large, bright room with a Super King sized bed
Bedroom 2 - again, very large, with a king size bed and a bay window from which you can see the sea
Bedroom 3 - a good sized sunny room with a king size double bed
Bedroom 4 - large loft room with single bed in one area and a Day Bed in another, which opens out into a double bed, making this room capacity three.
On the ground floor is a large sitting room with an open fireplace and french windows leading onto a side patio with a small table and two chairs.
Our large, modern kitchen (equipped well for any cooking enthusiast!) has a set of doors opening onto a patio and a private, sunny garden with BBQ, outdoor furniture and sun loungers.
