Roedean Crescent is considered to be one of Brighton’s most desired locations. It is close to the vibrancy of central Brighton and sought after Hove, but set enough apart to experience the peaceful Sussex Downs. The nearby Marina and Kemp Town offer plenty of amenities and restaurants and the seafront undercliff walk into Rottingdean makes a wonderful family outing. The highly regarded private school, Brighton College is a short drive away and Roedean School a short walk, making this the ideal family home.
