Property description


***Guide Price £300,000 - £325,000***

Fabulous garden apartment forming part of an elegant Victorian property on Ditchling Rise. Large reception room with wood-burning stove. Private south-facing garden. Superb central location. No onward chain.

Knight & Knoxley are delighted to present this one-bedroom garden flat on Ditchling Rise, just off Preston Circus. The central location is ideal for anyone wanting to access Brighton city centre on foot or by bus, and Brighton station is only a fifteen-minute walk.

As you approach the property you will notice the attractive exterior, freshly painted, with a wrought iron balustrade and steps leading down to your own private entrance. Inside, the flat is spacious and homely, the living room is at the rear of the property with a window onto the garden. This room runs across the full width of the property and is nearly five metres wide. The focal point is an exposed brick fireplace with a wood-burning stove. Off the living room, there is a kitchen which has a door to the garden. There are fitted units, an electric fan oven, an electric hob with an extractor fan above, space for a fridge and space and plumbing for a washing machine. The door to the garden opens onto the side return where there is a flower bed and mature shrubs. This leads down to the main garden area which faces south and has a patio area for a table and chairs as well as further flowerbeds and mature plants. The good-sized double bedroom is at the front of the flat and has a large bay window. In the bathroom, there is a white suite with a shower attachment over the bath. The flat has double-glazing and wall-mounted electric heaters.

Ditchling Rise is a short stroll from Preston Park, which has large open spaces, tennis courts, a velodrome and places to grab a coffee and a bite to eat - the Rotunda Café or the Chalet Café. The Duke of York's Picturehouse, Brighton's much-loved independent cinema, is moments away at Preston Circus, screening a huge variety of films throughout the week. A short stroll down London Road will bring you to the vibrant Open Market which is home to independent shops, artist's studios and plaza traders with stalls selling handmade arts and crafts, delicious food and much more. There are great local pubs and restaurants including the Open House, Signalman, Jolly Brewer, Preston Park Tavern and the Roundhill, all close by, to name but a few! The Roundhill is notable as it has an entirely vegan kitchen, serving award-winning plant-based meals. The property is ideally located for commuters, as Brighton Mainline station is a short walk away with direct services to London Bridge and Victoria, which arrive in London in less than an hour. Even closer is London Road station with services to Lewes and beyond. Several bus routes run close by including the 5,5A and 5B which will take you straight into town.
