Tenure: Share of Freehold

edwardian maisonette | Just a short walk from the desirable Seven Dials and Brighton Station is this deceptively spacious three bedroom maisonette. It encompasses the first and second floors of an attractive Edwardian house, and it has the bright and generously proportioned rooms that this period affords. The woodwork throughout the apartment has been stripped back and polished which gives it a warm homely feel, and there are a wealth of original features and period fireplaces to add character. All the bedrooms are sizable doubles, and you are close to popular schools and parks, so it would be perfect for professional sharers and families alike.


In brief:


Style:1st and 2nd floor Edwardian maisonette


Bedrooms: 3 double


Living rooms: 1 spacious


Area: 931 sq.ft ; 86.5 sq.m


Location: Seven Dials


Parking: Permit parking zone O


Why you’ll like it:


Seven Dials is famed for its cosmopolitan shops, bars and restaurants, and its cool unpretentious vibe. This spacious maisonette is tucked away in a quiet residential road just around the corner, close to the Bhasvic fields, and the exterior is smart in red brick and white render with a decorative bargeboard on the gable and floral reliefs picked out in white. You approach up a wide tiled path to the original blue panelled door and into a small communal hallway where your door is ahead. Once inside you climb some carpeted stairs to a spacious landing where bedroom three is peacefully located at the rear. This is a generous double with decorative cast iron fireplace, and has French windows open up to the rooftop from the ground floor extension (although this is not to be walked on; the doors are for fresh air and light only).


The bathroom is conveniently next door, and this is contemporary in style with a mixture of slate tiles and white mosaics on the walls, and a modern white suite with a shower over the bath. Bedroom two is accessed up a few more steps, and is also looks out through two sash windows to the pretty walled gardens below. Both bedrooms on this floor have traditional built in wardrobes in the alcoves, and are carpeted for comfort and warmth.


Further towards the front of the house, the living room is on the right, past the turning wooden staircase to the second floor. A wide square bay window looks out over the quiet road, and is the perfect space for a dining table and chairs. Another period fireplace takes centre stage and is open with a wooden surround to echo the other wooden features throughout the flat. There is ample space in here for comfortable sofas, and being west facing it gets a warming light streaming in of a summer evening. The kitchen is next door, and while it is compact, it has everything you need with cream units in a country style, with space below the wood effect counter for a washing machine. The gas hob and electric oven are integrated and the ceramic sink is thoughtfully placed below the window.


Taking the stairs to the second floor you’ll find the master bedroom which has laminate floors and three Velux windows to it is delightfully light. There’s yet more storage in the eaves, and space for a double bed, a desk and other pieces of bedroom furniture; and although it is in the loft space, headspace is not compromised at all.


Bear in mind:


While this maisonette doesn’t have any outside space of its own, St Anne’s Wells Gardens are a short walk around the corner where you’ll find a cafe, tennis courts, and lots of green spaces for picnics.
