Everything you need; cooking utensils, oven/ hob, microwave, fridge, dishwasher, dining table, washing machine/dryer, lots of work surface and cupboards full of crockery, glassware, pots and pans and that all important coffee pot.
Upstairs is the living room, comfy sofas, TV/DVD, sound system, games, good books, restful lighting, lovely view to the Downs. Next door is bedroom one, small double with walk in wardrobe. All bedrooms have cotton sheets, plump duvets and pillows, radio and hair-dryer, decent mirrors, restful lighting.
WC with handbasin on this floor.
Upstairs to bedrooms two and three and bathroom. Bedroom two is the largest and bedroom three is compact but cosy.
The bathroom has a good shower, deep bathtub, heated towel rail, washbasin and WC.
The house is close to the lovely Grange Gardens where you will find peaceful places to sit and enjoy the stunning flower planting and a great little art gallery.
The railway station is two minutes away and trains run into the centre of Brighton every ten minutes and into London every half hour. Public transport is excellent, buses run all along the South Coast and to delightful Georgian Tunbridge Wells.
