Portslade


Portslade is the coastal town to the west of Brighton and Hove in East Sussex which has been named one of the South-East’s leading property hot spots with a growing number of young professionals moving into the area.

History

Portslade Village, to the north, nestles in a valley of the South Downs and still retains its rural character with flint buildings, a village green and the small parish church of St Nicolas, which is the second-oldest church in the city, dating from approximately 1150.

Area

With a good choice of schools the area is very popular with young families and people who have been priced out of the property market in more expensive Brighton and Hove. Properties in Portslade include older style terraces and semi detached houses south of the A27 and cottages along with modern bungalows and houses around the old village and Mile Oak areas.

Getting there!

Portslade has its very own train station which mostly provides services towards Southampton and London Victoria.  Today Portslade is bisected from east to west by the old A27 road (now the A270) between Brighton and Worthing, each part having a distinct character.
