Dunrobin Rd, Hove
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.
