Beautiful family home in Brighton, vibrant, colourful, creative City by the Sea - Brighton

Situated in the Roundhill Conservation Area, once you open the door of our Victorian terraced house you`ll feel the welcome and warmth of a happy, loved family home. We`ve lived here for over 20 years and wouldn`t want to live anywhere else.

Downstairs is the kitchen/dining room, opening onto a terraced garden with a small patio seating area - delightful for breakfast for 2 - and larger decked seating area with a table and chairs for 6. Also downstairs is the living room with cable TV, music system, two sofas, one of which converts to a sofa-bed (so sleeps up to 9, if a couple of people happy with sofa-bed), armchair and open fire.

On the first floor is the bathroom, with bath, WC and shower, one double bedroom and two single bedrooms, one of which has a day bed which quickly converts to a double bed.

On the second floor is another double bedroom, with views over the city down to the sea. It also has a TV.

The house is centrally heated throughout.

About the location

Brighton is a brilliant city - open-minded, inclusive, easy-going - and there is simply always something new to do or see. Lonely Planet says `Brighton is, without doubt, Britain`s most colourful and outrageous city`, and whether you`re looking for a laid back break or a lively holiday, Brighton has something for everyone. It has more restaurants and pubs per head than any other UK city outside of London, great theatres and music venues, and we even have the oldest working cinema in the UK less than 10 minutes walk from our house.

We walk everywhere - we`re 10 minutes from the North Laine area, which provides a fantastic, colourful 15 minute walk into the city-centre, though it will take you much longer if you`re enticed by any of the funky alternative shops/bars/cafes on the way.

There are three local parks within walking distance, with children`s play areas, skateboard park and running/cycle track. We are a pleasant 25 minute walk away from Brighton seafront and beach where there is a multitude of activities for people of all ages including the iconic pier with its fairground rides, the Sea Life Centre, Volks Electric Railway and the new BA i360, the world`s tallest moving observation platform.

At the heart of Brighton’s cultural quarter is the famous Royal Pavilion, originally the home of the Prince Regent (George IV). Across the Pavilion gardens is the Brighton Museum & Art Gallery, which has an eclectic mix of exhibits and events throughout the year. Next door to the Museum is the Brighton Dome, a multi-arts venue. It’s also one of the main venues for the Brighton Festival in May.

We`re 15 minutes walk from Brighton Station, which has a regular 50 minute train service into the heart of London, and half an hour to/from Gatwick airport.

We`re a run, cycle, or short bus ride away from the beautiful South Downs National Park. Lewes, Eastbourne, Hastings and many other towns are easily accessible by bus, train or car.
