Legend has it that this beautiful four bedroom Regency house was built for the surveyors during Nash’s revamping of the Royal Pavilion, hence its unique details and fashionable location by the North Laines, close to the Palace, the sea and the station. Now Grade II listed with restful proportions and views over the Level which you can enjoy from the veranda, this elegant home also has a private, sunny garden.

Area:  1594 sq ft; 148.1 sq m

Why you’ll like it:

Constructed during 1815 in a terrace of five houses adorned with delicately wrought balconies, bow windows and with a pediment over the central three, the outside of this four storey home is immensely appealing. Steps rise to the smart front door painted a soft green to reflect the leafy views opposite and inside, the sensitive use of colour continues in the welcoming Farrow and Ball tones of the hallway, and indeed, throughout the home.

On the right, sun pours into the elegant drawing room, orientated from east to west so it is bright all day, the bay at the front framing verdant views of the Level whilst at the far end of the room, tall French doors open to a decked balcony and the central courtyard which is paved and hung with vines. At the end of the hallway is a quiet study, with attractive wooden shelving and broad windows which stretch across almost the full length of the wall looking over the garden. Most unusually, this room connects to what we are told was once a cockle shed which forms the back of the property, the amalgamation of which has created a spacious utility room with ample storage inside but also, outside, both the charming central courtyard and a unique rear entrance to a gated twittern running between the shops of the London Road and the leisure facilities of the revamped Level.

Downstairs is an atmospheric kitchen diner which is full of soft light as the windows at each end are at chest height. Painted in a classical Regency colour, this large room which has a door to the steps to the garden is ideal for entertaining. A family friendly kitchen with a central island and solid wooden units has plenty of sturdy work surfaces and the fabulous multi fuel range could stay, subject to circumstance and negotiation. The fridge and freezer are integrated as is the dishwasher, and at the other end of the room there is ample space for a dining table. Tucked away at the far end is a chic guest cloakroom, ideal for guests as they don’t have to disturb sleeping children.

The spacious bathroom is at the top of a wooden staircase and is big enough for both a bath and a separate shower, both of which are in a style in keeping with the age of the house, although the heated towel rail would have been met by great approval from the original owners! Next door in what would have been the principle reception but which is now a dreamy master bedroom,  a graceful floor to ceiling bay continues to take in the movements of the City and the open views of the park, and slide up to an exquisite balcony facing east for the morning sunshine. Inside, an intricate, decorated cornice wends its way high above your head and to the left a stately fireplace adds comfort to the room.

At the top, the serene bedroom at the back offers some fascinating views of Brighton, old and new with the impressive façade of St Bartholomew’s Church, known as the “Ark”, drawing the eye up to the contemporary New England Quarter. The restful double room with tree top views at the front spans the full width of the building and with twin wardrobes and a chic en suite shower room, like the rest of this fabulous home, it is completely ready to move into.

Bear in mind:

Brighton is famous for its beach lifestyle as well as its culture which are right on the doorstep and whole, Grade II listed homes here with flexible accommodation and sunny gardens do not appear on the market very often.

Owner’s secret:

“The Lanes are full of Georgian character, designer shops and great restaurants and are just minutes away but we sit in our sheltered garden and feel a million miles away from the city”

Where it is:

Shops: North Laines 1 minute

Train Station: Brighton mainline 7 minute walk

Seafront or Park: The Level is opposite, the Pier is a 10 minute stroll

Closest Schools:

Primary: Middle Street, St Bartholomews

Secondary: Varndean or Dorothy Stringer

Private: Brighton College, Brighton and Hove High, Roedean, Lancing

This spacious house is right at the heart of the City but is opposite the green of the Level which has a playground, café and exhibition centre. The North Laines, with its fashionable mix of boutiques, cafes, bars and restaurants are only minutes away, as are the beach and the Theatres. Brighton Hospital and College are within easy reach and for those needing to commute, Brighton Station is a short walk and has excellent links to Gatwick and London.
