It has been newly refurbished to a high standard with a contemporary finish which blends perfectly with the period features. This would so be perfect for long term let as it is brilliantly located to explore everything the city has to offer.

Why you’ll like it:
These glorious Victorian terraces were built in the 1890s, and while many were uniformly creamy white like their Regency neighbours, this one stands out in pale ochre with contrasting black sash windows to mirror the grand front door and the decorative iron railings. Many of these grand buildings have been converted into apartments, which are still hugely sought after; not only are the sea and Hove lawns just a short stroll down the hill, but there’s a plethora of cosmopolitan shops and restaurants at the bottom of the road.
This flat sits atop the townhouse, where you walk past beautiful stained glass windows and you come to a small landing shared by two others. Your door opens onto a short hallway where the living room and kitchen are to the right. The floors are newly carpeted, but where the kitchen begins on the far wall around the window, the flooring changes to engineered oak in syrupy tones to match the solid wood work surfaces. The units are sleek in white gloss and the fridge and oven are integrated below to counter. This is a generous room with high ceilings, and whilst modern, the fireplace is original with a cast iron insert, and a classic white fire surround for use as a mantle.
Next door the bedroom is bright with another tall sash looking out to a tall beech tree and neighbouring gardens below. There’s ample space for a double bed, and some free standing furniture, and a tall cupboard cleverly disguises the space and plumbing for the washing machine, plus a shelf for a small freezer (If you didn’t need a freezer, this space could be used as a wardrobe to
maximise space). The en suite bathroom is on trend with urban grey tiles on the walls and floor, and there’s a tall corner shower with a sleek curved door in one corner.
This flat does have lots going for it, and it feels bright and spacious due to it’s high ceilings and large windows.
Bear in mind:
The flat is on the third floor and once inside it is very peaceful; away from the hustle and bustle of the city.
“It’s a great road to live on, you can get everywhere easily on foot, or there are several busses at the bottom of the road to take you further afield if need be.’’
