Why you’ll like it:
Standing proud at the point at which the famous Crescent prepares to curve to join the Square, this splendid Regency house has broad steps and magnificent Corinthian columns stretching up over two storeys above the delicately wrought iron balcony. The impressive front door opens into a vestibule which has retained precious period detail and the chequered marble floor continues into an imposing entrance hall where a staircase spirals up ahead, with a lift discreetly tucked away out of sight at the rear of the building, leading to the back door of this apartment.
The front door to this refined home is up the stairs on the fourth floor, and opens into a welcoming hallway with practical wooden flooring which continues into the elegantly proportioned living room ahead. Spectacular views of the sea pour into the room through the two broad windows and on the right hand wall is a Regency style fireplace.
Also with stunning views over the restful gardens to the English Channel and the protective arm of the Marina, the airy double bedroom at the front of the apartment is painted in a soothing hue and is ready to move into. Along the hallway is the second, generously sized and airy double room, with views of Kemp Town chimney pots and rooftops and the sky. Heading towards the back door to the lift, useful for supermarket deliveries as well as for moving furniture in, you pass a storage cupboard and on the left is the modern bathroom, which is sensibly tiled up to the ceiling with a shower above the bath. Perfectly functional, and with a scrumptious heated towel rail, this is an area of the apartment that would be easy to glam up in time, which would also add value of course.
Across the hallway is a bright and cheerful kitchen with white units and work surfaces. The integrated electric hob and oven are already in place for you beneath a discreet extractor and there is plumbing for a washing machine close to the sink. The generous sash window on your left brings in lots of natural light and has deep sills inside and out, perfect for sweet scented herbs for the organic and adventurous chef- although don’t go overboard as the restaurants of the Marina and Kemp Town are within walking distance!
Bear in mind:
This refined apartment in the house selected by Cubitt himself to live in now has the advantage of a lift.
“We love the feeling of stepping back in time when you enter the house, and the landscaped gardens with a secret tunnel to the beach are just beautiful.”
