What the owner says:
'I moved from Southampton to this house 43 years ago with my wife, three daughters and assorted pets. The first impression we had, of a lovely family house on a hill, with wonderful views over the area, have stayed with us throughout all the years.
For us, the location, with the Downs just 5 minutes up the road, the sea-front near, and lovely Brighton only a short bus-ride away, has been perfect. I may be biased, but the bonus has been that Chorley Avenue is the friendliest road in Saltdean.
All three of our daughters attended local schools, and as teenagers, enjoyed having the downstairs of the house almost to themselves (except for meals!) For me, the essence of a '60's house has been preserved, the range of rooms give flexibility of use, and the rear garden is the perfect private retreat.
Now my circumstances have changed, and it is time for me to move on. I am sure that whoever moves in will find 26 Chorley as secure and friendly as my family have always felt.'
Saltdean is situated just off the coast road and adjacent to Rottingdean Village. Chorley Avenue is just off Westmeston Avenue and being in an elevated position you have great views over Saltdean to farmland/Downland.
A variety of shops can be found close by in Lustrells Vale, with a chip shop, an Italian restaurant and a launderette! Enjoy a meal at the Saltdean Tavern in Arundel Drive West for evenings out or venture into to Rottingdean for a variety of pubs.
You can access the beach via an underground subway next to the Lido and walk along the cliffs to nearby Rottingdean or enjoy a swim at the newly renovated Saltdean Lido.
For access to Brighton Marina or Brighton City centre a good bus route operates close to include the 12, 27 & 47. Saltdean Primary is situated just off Lustrells Vale. There are more schools in Rottingdean Village and Longhill High School is in nearby Ovingdean.

Woodingdean is a beautiful area that offers all the benefits of country living just 3 miles outside of Brighton. It's rural-in-the-city, with free parking. And the deepest hand-dug well in the world.The area has a real feeling of community – typified by the annual Christmas get-together for businesses on Warren Road. Many locals have spent the majority of their lives in the area.Popular with Brightonians looking to settle down – without leaving the city completely behind - there's nothing quite like starting the day cresting the hill of Falmer Road, and coming home to vegetables from your own patch.Read more
