Why you’ll like it:
The locals affectionately call Kemp Town Village “Chelsea by the Sea”, although this coastal location provides affordable, stylish homes within walking distance of the station, City and the beach! This charming home is on a sought after road in a well preserved Victorian terrace protected from traffic noise, and is very inviting with its white paint, bay windows and sky blue door.
Inside, the hallway has period features and rich chocolate coloured walnut wood flooring which continues into the elegant living room on the right. Light streams through the generous south facing window which the current owners have fitted with colonial shutters. The Deco tiled fireplace reminds you that this family home has experienced more than one fashionable era, and the owners were told by the person they bought from that the chimneys on the ground floor are still open – a rare treat. Next door is a graciously proportioned room with another handsome fireplace, and which, like the rest of the house, has a spectacularly high ceiling. Currently used as a dining room, this quiet room is frequently used as a third bedroom in this popular location within two minutes of Brighton College.
Unusually in a City built on hills, the spacious kitchen at the end of the hallway is on the same level as the welcoming receptions and opens to the private courtyard which is an ideal space for al fresco dining after a hot day on the beach. Seasonally friendly, inside, the dark slate floor conceals under floor heating for winter mornings and there are plenty of stylish ivory units and working counter space all the year round. All of the appliances are integrated for you, including a sleek Zanussi touch induction hob, and most, having been installed in 2014, are still under a warranty, which is always good news.
At the top of the stairs is a fabulous bathroom with a spa like feel which is large enough for a free standing tub and separate shower. The wide hand basin rests on stylish storage and there is a heated rail for towels and under floor heat for toes – and a beautifully practical separate w.c next door!
A few steps takes you up to the quiet first floor where the first double bedroom looks over the courtyard and the master bedroom stretches the full width of the house with a restful lofty ceiling. Twin double wardrobes are already in place for you and during the day the graceful south facing bay brings in sunshine and views of the characterful period terrace opposite.
Bear in mind:
This period house has unusually high ceilings, big windows and a private courtyard in a popular conservation area by the sea. Some neighbours have converted the attic.
“Our street is quiet and friendly and we stroll into the Village for fresh meat, cheese and bread. The hardware store is a Godsend and there also happens to be a Patisserie and merchant wine shop!”
