House Removals Hove
Brighton’s more tranquil neighbour is Hove. A quick jaunt west up the coast and the beach-front hotels and restaurants give way to gleaming white residential properties, rich with a blend of Georgian and Neo-classical architecture.
Many pair up the city and the town, referring to the area as Brighton and Hove. However, the locations couldn’t be more different. Hove receives the tail end of the bohemian and quirky nature of Brighton, whilst simply being less busy and more laid back.
Moving to Hove
Resplendent with regency townhouses, terracotta mansions and elegant mews, house prices in Hove are pretty much on par with Brighton. The most desirable places to live are Brunswick Square, Adelaide Crescent and Regency Square; pristine and built around communal gardens.
Often referred to as the Malibu of the British south coast, Western Esplanade is the highest value street in Hove, with properties selling for upward of £2million at the cheapest end of the bracket.
A 1-bedroom flat in Hove would set buyers back approximately £205,135. A 2-bedroom house comes in at prices of £386,663 whilst a 3 bed house is an additional £145,000.

Hove does have an array of bars and pubs, which are much more sedate than Brighton. However, if a louder night is what you are after, a quick cab into the city centre could be on the cards.
