Guide price

Bedrooms: 5
This charming family home is on a tranquil private road in the coastal village of Ovingdean, nestled between Roedean and Rottingdean, and just moments from South Downs National Park. Extending to more than 2700 sq ft, across three floors, this tasteful family home has been thoughtfully extended and updated over the years, creating a contemporary yet warm space. Complete with a range of mod cons, including underfloor heating, contemporary double glazing, high spec fixtures and fittings and a truly exceptional, landscaped garden to the rear, this immaculate property has so much to offer.

The wide, welcoming entrance hallway leads through to the back of the house, with a delightful sitting room with feature fireplace, and guest cloakroom off it. The rear of the house is given over to a bespoke, fully fitted, Alistair Fleming kitchen-breakfast room, complete with a Range cooker, complementary granite worktops and handy adjacent utility room. Alongside it is a superb, half-vaulted reception room with its own bespoke bookshelf, the ideal family space, with a door into the garage at the rear. Both spaces have French doors leading out to the garden.

Upstairs on the first floor there are two bright and spacious double bedrooms, one of which benefits from an en-suite shower room, whist bedrooms two, three and four share the beautifully appointed family shower room. The principal bedroom occupies its own private floor at the top of the house and boasts a very stylish en-suite bathroom with twin basins, freestanding bath and glass fronted walk-in shower.


Number Six The Ridings occupies a wonderfully generous and secluded corner plot within this delightful close of just six houses. It has two off-street parking spaces in front of the garage, flanked by the front garden with its colourful variety of shrubs and bedding plants. Appealing to keen gardeners and families wanting space for the kids to play in alike, the fantastically landscaped rear garden has been cleverly conceived to offer colour and interest all year round, with considered planting delineating different areas. From the back of the house, a gorgeous, reclaimed-brick paved patio is perfect for al fresco dining and a short flight of steps leads up to the level lawn beyond, bordered by varied herbaceous shrubs, flowers and trees. Around the side of the house is a greenhouse, compost area and vegetable garden.


The village of Ovingdean is a charming coastal community with the historic Rottingdean village its neighbour to the east. Both the seafront and countryside are within easy reach and there are lovely walks along the ridge to the windmill in Rottingdean and beyond, or the undercliff walk which takes you all the way into Brighton. There is an underpass leading directly to Ovingdean Beach under the coast road. There is a local store, village hall and pizza delivery in Ovingdean itself, with a mini-supermarket, butchers, bakers, post office and further independent stores in neighbouring Rottingdean. More extensive shopping can be found in Brighton city centre, served by the excellent regular bus service from the village. Brighton train station is just 5 miles away offering direct services to London and Gatwick airport, with easy road links via the A27/A23 to London and wider afield. Nearby schools include Apple Tree Montessori Nursery School, Rudyard Kipling Primary, Our Lady Of Lourdes Catholic School, St Margarets C Of E Primary School and Longhill High School, with private schools including Brighton College and the well-regarded Roedean.
