The best things in life are worth waiting for as the old saying goes and that is certainly true of this impressive Grade II Listed property in Hove.
Situated on one of the city’s most desirable streets, number one Albany Villas is on the market for the first time in over 30 years and with its close proximity to the seafront promenade and the location’s amenities, the wait will certainly be worthwhile.
This beautiful detached residence is believed to date from the 1830s and has an attractive double-fronted façade with canopied balconies on either side over tall sash windows.
A central path leads up to the impressive pedimented front door as you enter the property, with black wrought iron railings bordering the front courtyard and two off-road parking spaces.
Once inside, you are met by a lovely wide hallway with high ceilings and to the left is a sitting room running the full depth of the house, with a bay window at the front and balconies at both the front and rear. On the right sits a separate dining room, while beyond it is the kitchen with breakfast area leading out onto a further terrace, which gives onto the garden.
On the lower ground floor there are two bedrooms, a sitting room, kitchen, bathroom and cloakroom as well as two storage cupboards and a garage and the potential for conversion.
Upstairs, on the first floor, are two large double bedroom suites, each with en-suite bathrooms and dressing rooms as well as sea views. The top floor is currently configured as a studio space with one large room and a kitchenette and bathroom and is ideal for a teenager or to be rearranged to create two bedrooms.
This striking family house offers a fantastic opportunity for conversion as well as the rare chance to obtain a detached residence in one of the most desirable areas in Hove. Whatever you do with it, you will truly be able to make this property your own.
