Brighton, Somer­ton Park and Sea­cliff.

‘‘The next gen­er­a­tion of home­own­ers are re­fur­bish­ing, ren­o­vat­ing and ex­tend­ing homes there,’’ Mr Whit­taker says.

‘‘It’s a growth area in terms of younger fam­i­lies com­ing in and I think it’s well placed for con­sis­tent price growth go­ing for­ward.’’

Mr Whit­taker says Dun­robin Rd is a good ex­am­ple of the de­sir­able liv­ing Hove has to of­fer.

‘‘The ar­chi­tec­ture on the street varies dra­mat­i­cally but it’s above av­er­age in terms of qual­ity,’’ he says.

‘‘There is bus trans­port in the street and it’s only 100m or so to the Hove rail­way sta­tion.

‘‘You have lo­cal shop­ping at the end of the street and you’re only about 1km from the beach.’’ Grant Fran­cis’s par­ents have owned 18 Dun­robin Rd since 1992.

Mr Fran­cis says he has fond mem­o­ries of the house and street.

‘‘I cer­tainly en­joyed the prox­im­ity to the beach and be­ing able to go for a run down there and along the sand,’’ he says.

‘‘The lo­ca­tion, which is still close to the city, Glenelg and Mar­ion, is great and the pub­lic trans­port with the bus at your door and a short walk to the train is ideal.

‘‘One thing I have no­ticed is the younger pro­fes­sion­als and fam­i­lies with teenage chil­dren mov­ing in.

‘‘A lot of the older-style houses are be­ing knocked down and a lot of new prop­er­ties are be­ing built all along that cor­ri­dor.’’

Mem­o­ries: Grant Fran­cis is look­ing af­ter his par­ents’ house at Hove.
