Why you’ll like it:
In a popular conservation area close to the beach and City, this apartment spans the footprint of this impressive building, and although technically classified as lower ground, the front is at pavement height and at the back, the apartment opens into a sunny patio. The other advantage of this level is that the apartment has its own private entrance which has a platform by the top step for plants which also conceals storage.
The front door has etched glass so the inner lobby, which is sensibly tiled, is lit by the sun streaming through a thousand little stars and storage is not an issue in this apartment as to your left an under pavement cavern has been incorporated into the home providing an area which is large enough for bikes. To your right, an inner door leads into a tall hallway where the first room on your right is a spacious bedroom. With a stately central window in the broad bay frontage which reaches up past pavement level, this room is definitely not dark and the ceiling is high giving a great feeling of space, and there are deep alcoves on each side of the chimney breast for wardrobes.
Next door, the elegant living room has graceful, stripped floor to ceiling French doors with beautiful stain glass panels at the very top, which lead out into a private patio garden facing east but open to the south as this house is the end of terrace. There is social seating which doubles as storage and there is an outside power point for lights and music for the house warming bbq! Inside, there is already an alcove for a fireplace and just by the living room, which is currently being used as a comfortable room for guests, the hallway broadens out so you could easily put a home office there.
At the end of the hall is a bright, contemporary kitchen with space for a table and chairs. The gleaming white units are on each side of the room topped by glamorous stone surfaces which glint silver and the fabulous Smeg gas hob is blue with a matching electric oven beneath it and steel funicular extractor above. On the south wall, there is a glass brick wall hiding the sink from the guests in your garden as well as a large sash window for passing out the drinks and salads. At the moment there is a makeshift breakfast bar under it for said salads, which also covers the washing machine, although both could be removed as there is plenty of room where the drier now is, or you could extend the stone surface – it’s up to you, and nice to have the room for choice! The door in the far wall reveals a chic slate lined shower room, wet room in style, with a steel circular hand basin, double headed shower and gorgeously warm towel rail.
