Why you’ll like it:

In a super, central location, this nicely decorated apartment is within a striking hillside block, in surprisingly green environs and most unusually, has an entrance shared by only one other apartment, with easy  access and which is secured by an answer phone system.

The apartment door on the right opens into a welcoming hallway with a nice high ceiling and light coloured flooring which continues along the passageway where a storage cupboard on the left is so big that it comfortably doubles as a utility space, with plumbing for a machine already in place.

On the right is the bright and spacious double bedroom, with plenty of room for furniture and which, like the rest of the apartment, has energy efficient windows, these facing west and looking over the securely fenced garden.

Next door is a glamorous living room where the far wall is all glass, bringing both the garden and the sunlight in, a broad door opening into the apartments’ own garden, the perfect place to chill out in peace at the end of a busy day, but which is also large enough for stylish entertaining - and it has a paved dining area at the edge of the lawn ready and waiting!

The kitchen is nicely tucked away in a room to the left of the living space, and also has a wide, west facing window, so the room is light and ready to use, with stone coloured units with laminate surfaces along one side, and connections for a gas cooker. As there is also a larder, there is space for a breakfast bar if you wanted one as well as room for a tall fridge freezer, so over time you could add value in this space, as you also could in the practical bathroom at the end of the hallway, which is simply decorated and has a mini, economical bath with a shower attachment, white suite and a useful floor to ceiling cupboard. 

Bear in mind:

Brighton is famous for its lifestyle and culture, which are right on the doorstep, as well as the beach. The Lanes are full of Georgian character- and designer shops and great restaurants, and are just a short stroll from this impressive block, which has a healthy mix of private and local authority owned apartments, run with great efficiency by the Council.

Owner’s secret:

“This is a friendly place to live and we love being able to leave the flat and be on the beach or in the Lanes - or even in the Theatre - in minutes!”

Where it is:

Shops: Local 2 minutes, Lanes 5 minutes walk

Train Station: Brighton Mainline 10-15 minute walk, 5 minute cycle

Seafront or Park: Beach is 5 minute walk, Queens Park 8 minutes

Closest Schools:

Primary: Carlton Hill Primary, Queen’s Park

Secondary: Varndean or Dorothy Stringer

Private: Brighton College

This spacious apartment, which is ready to move into, is just minutes from the fashionable Lanes with its shops, bars and restaurants. The beach and Pavilion are within an easy walk as are the Hospital and popular schools, and its proximity to the train station and the A23/A27 makes this home an interesting prospect for those searching for a full or part time retreat, or thinking of an investment property.
