A sunny detached Edwardian Villa with 6 large beautiful bedrooms (one has distant seaview) 3 bathrooms & a kitchen/diner with views across a magnificent walled west-facing garden. The large kitchen table seats up to 17. The house is full of original features. Dominated by a marble fireplace, ornate coving & a huge chandelier the living room, with stripped wooden floors, is a relaxing home from home. Parking for 3 cars. You're 4mins walk to Hove station & Hove Park & 17 mins walk to the sea.
We want you to feel like you're in your own private hotel, with fresh linens and lashings of hot water. We don't do bunk-beds here. It's comfort all the way. The detached house itself has plantation shutters throughout and is set in the fashionable Wilbury area of Hove with bags of Edwardian features - ornate coving, a 100 year-old tiled hallway, marble fireplaces and beautiful chandeliers. The large garden has two mature apple trees. If you're here in season try them - they're gorgeous. While the best spot in the house for me is the kitchen with its American fridge-freezer, table seating 17 and its panoramic garden views. From the top floor of the house you have distant sea-views.

My wife and I are always on hand for questions although there is a dedicated and lovely housekeeper as well
Do try the wonderful Hove Patisserie at the bottom of the street. Over the footbridge passed Hove Station, Wolfies fish and chip shop is an award winner. The pub, The Watchmakers' Arms is further along from the chippie and was voted by The Times one of the top ten craft beer drinking holes in the country. Gorgeous Hove Park (lovely cafe, tennis courts, playpark) is four minutes walk away. Hove Station has links to London (Victoria station 51 mins) and there's a shuttle to Brighton station that goes every few mins. Journey-time about 4 mins. Restaurants and bars are a few minutes walk away on Church Road. There's a Waitrose the other side of the park and a late-opening Tesco Express across the footbridge on Denmark Villas. Every Saturday morning the 5k Park Run in Hove Park is attended by up to 200 runners. It starts at 9am.Thanks
