* Calls to this number will be recorded for quality, compliance and training purposes.
Ripe for development, this three bedroom detached home inspires ideas whether great or small. On a large plot with an adjacent garage, its sunny west garden has a summer house where you can enjoy the birds and resident hedgehogs by day, whilst the astronomy dome allows you to explore the Milky Way at night. Built in 1986 as part of an exclusive no through development with views across to Benfield Valley Nature reserve and a choice of popular primary schools and secondary schools within a 3-6 minute radius, it has had only one owner who having cared for elderly relatives and now suffering from ill health, finds that this substantial property has become a little too much to manage – and is offering you the opportunity to create the home of your dreams! Inside has a lovely, easy flow between the living room, dining room and kitchen – the latter two each opening to the garden - and although both the kitchen and bathroom need attention, time is on your side as they function. 2 minutes from a sociable child/pet friendly park, there is also a bridle path behind the garden leading to the open countryside of a golf course and the beach is a short drive. Attracting professionals, families and investors, Hangleton’s amenities include bistro pubs, shops, doctors, and dentist as well as a station 5 minutes away which serves the coast and London, whilst 4 minutes out but out of hearing, the A27 makes Brighton (10 minutes) and Gatwick (about 25) a reasonable commute.

Why you’ll like it:
With a sunny east west orientation and a picture perfect vista which sweeps to open countryside at the front, this quiet development was skilfully designed for each property to be private, and the bridle/footpath behind the house, maintained at no cost to you, has the golf course at one end and leads ultimately to the famous Devil’s Dyke in the South Down’s National Park.
Tucked away from the leafy street behind a low maintenance shingle garden, a neat driveway is large enough for a motorhome and leads to a detached, brick built garage which also has access to the garden beyond a secure side gate. A lit front door beneath a protective porch opens to an inviting hallway- and straight away, this lovely home sparks interesting options with a light and spacious room at the front which could be a comfortable home office or a big guest bedroom as it is next to a cloakroom.
At the back of the house, a bright and cheerful kitchen has a door to the dining room – prompting questions about knocking through and/or extending outside, and by a window, the stable door to the garden brings in plenty of fresh air whilst keeping a toddler or pet contained, although if it is cold, there is an ingenious glass panel at the top too! We all want the kitchen of our dreams, but it is good to know that this one has family friendly solid wood units and practical working surfaces, and although you will need to replace some appliances, the electrics and plumbing are in place.
Next door, the dining room has elegant proportions and a wall of double glazed glass which slides across to the garden, ideal for entertaining. With a connecting door to both the kitchen and the living room there’s a great social flow, and the living room itself has a broad bay window and ample floorspace to enjoy with company.
Upstairs, the landing has lit storage and both the double bedroom and the single bedroom (with large fitted wardrobes) at the back are private and peaceful with garden views. At the front, the large principal bedroom is an airy refuge which is not directly overlooked, and it is worth noting that it has access to a Jack and Jill shower, which is not working at the moment but it does raise the possibility of creating an en suite…. To the side of the house, the bathroom has natural light, a lit airing cupboard and a white suite which includes a bidet.
Outside is really exciting! Big back garden which is west facing and backing onto a bridle path it is an oasis of calm just a few minutes from Brighton & Hove’s city centre by car. A haven for hedgehogs and birds, a paved terrace level with the house is ideal for al fresco dining and steps rise to a private, landscaped garden with an astronomy dome at the centre and an extra patio area. To one side a sheltered seating area by a pond is relaxing and a path leads through the rest of the garden to a summer house with power and lighting which is a restful retreat at any time of year.
“This quiet area attracts families wanting a healthier lifestyle and good schools but also swift access to local amenities, the city and airports. This big, bright chalet, which is priced to sell, is in an exclusive no through development where properties do not appear on the market often – and sell fast.”
“This location is only about 10 minutes’ drive from Hove but you return to peace, countryside views and parking! With light and spacious rooms the flowing layout has worked well for over 36 years, but it would be relatively simple to make it more contemporary by joining the ground floor rooms and/or extending out STC, as there would still be plenty of room in the garden. There’s a choice of local shops just a few minutes away with everything you need from fresh coffee or a restaurant to a pharmacy and Tesco Express and a Sainsbury’s supermarket just down the road. If you love the great outdoors, the beach is a short drive and there is a local park to enjoy as well as a nature reserve. We are surrounded by the National Park and have easy access to it, but we’re also well connected as buses run in and out of Brighton or along the coast.”
