Why you’ll like it:

In 1824 the distinguished houses of Sussex Square were constructed for the rich and famous, and this continues to be one of Brighton’s most prestigious addresses. This apartment is within a grand stuccoed Mansion with an imposing front door protected by a porch resting on Doric columns and is on the second floor, the lift whisking you up to a light hall where the entrance is to the right.

Opening into a hallway which wends off into the distance, on the right is a welcoming kitchen with tree tops peeking through the window, beyond which, in the winter, you can admire the dramatic facades of the protected buildings opposite. This is a practical kitchen, with attractive, honey coloured flooring matched by the plentiful units which have nicely contrasting dark work surfaces. The electric hob, oven and extractor are to your right, close to both the integrated fridge freezer and the sociable breakfast bar by the window, which can seat up to four comfortably. The run to your left has both a concealed dishwasher and washing machine, and so this is a room where you only need to supply fresh food and good company!

Next door, double glass doors sweep you into a graceful living room with the elegant proportions so loved in the Regency period and where their penchant for natural light is illustrated by the two stately sash windows ahead, facing west for the sunsets and bringing in beautiful views over the enclosures to the sea. The handsome grey marble fireplace has survived, now with a pastel tile inset and the deep, detailed cornicing remains intact well above your head. Well situated for both occupants and guests, across the hall is the modern bathroom, with classic black and white tiling and a Triton shower above the bath. The hand basin rests on storage for necessities, although there is also a large airing cupboard by the door. 

The apartment has been thoughtfully designed so that the two spacious bedrooms are quietly situated overlooking the large central light well. The first double bedroom, next to the bathroom, has lovely, restful proportions and a deep sill to the side of the window for books or plants. The quiet master bedroom is privately situated around the corner and at the end of a passageway – ideal if you were thinking of sharing or having guests, and has triple windows allowing in soft light and almost an entire wall of floor to ceiling wardrobes with discreet storage above them.

Bear in mind:

This elegant, practical home is in a great location with use of the garden enclosures and is in a historical listed building which, unusually will consider pets - subject to application.
