Why you’ll like it:
The beautiful houses and gardens of Sussex Square were designed by Busby and Wilds in the 1820’s for the rich and famous, and continues to be one of Brighton’s most desirable addresses. This glorious apartment is within one of these impressive Regency houses, which has intricate iron work and a large porch with Doric columns. Approached up a wide and shallow steps the studded front door opens into a hallway which has a lovely high ceiling with detailed cornicing and ahead, a staircase with silken dark handrail gently sweeps up out of sight.
Opening the door to the right, the broad hallway with its marble chequered floor, high ceiling and own staircase feels welcoming and impressive and has both a large cupboard for coats and bags and a discreet guest cloakroom. Thoughtfully designed to make the most of the fabulous balcony and views upstairs, the bedrooms are on this floor. Looking over the leafy gardens at the front of the building, the master bedroom has restful proportions and the two, gracious windows have retained their original shutters. The sensitive nature of the conversion is clear in the preservation of the handsome fireplace and also in the beautiful, decorated radiator in a traditional style, which can be found throughout this stylish home. Across the hallway, the second bedroom is light and airy and high above your head, delicate plaster work still wends around the room.
Upstairs, the lobby is striking in its unexpected breadth and sculptural feel and opens out into the stunning reception, stretching the full width of this glorious mansion. Sunshine streams in through the three sets of French doors, which, with windows above them, reach from floor to ceiling and bring in tranquil views across the gardens. Opening into a delicately wrought balcony you can just imagine entertaining in style and as it broadens at the south end there is plenty of space for dining with friends whilst enjoying the sea. Inside, the floor boards gleam and there is an elegant marble fireplace with a steel inset which has a gas fire adding warmth as well as atmosphere to the space.
Central to this storey, the luxury shower room would not look out of place in a glossy magazine with its spa like colours and sleek fittings which include a dual headed shower, and next door, the streamlined kitchen does not disappoint, with graceful etched French doors opening to a Juliette balcony. Galley in style, the reflective white units are topped by chic white Corian and as all the appliances, including a touch induction hob, oven, microwave, fridge, freezer, dishwasher and washing machine are integrated, this is a kitchen just waiting for the housewarming.
