Having been subject to an exhaustive high-quality refurbishment by the current owners, this impeccably presented family home retains a wealth of character and charm as evidenced by its many ornate and corniced ceilings, friezes, high skirtings, and original cast-iron radiators.

A major benefit of this refurbishment is a future-proofed central heating system provided by a Viessmann Vitovalor PT2 System (CHP). This system will reduce utilities costs as it produces power for the house meaning less electricity is being supplied from the grid. It also importantly meets incoming requirements for alternative heating solutions. Excess capacity can also be sold back to the grid. This is the first property in Brighton/Hove to have installed this technology.
