Why you’ll like it:
This luxurious penthouse is within one of the grandest of the seafront Regency mansions looking over the English Channel and is Grade II listed. Even the entrance is imposing and secured, as you would expect, with an entry phone system, ideal for every day or for when you need to lock up and leave. Inside is one of the finest examples of a Regency staircase in Brighton, sweeping up beneath an enormous vaulted roof light, and this private home is up on the top floor.
Sunshine streams through the stunning reception with windows so broad and tall that you can enjoy the open vista of the sea even when sitting down. The views over the beach and ever changing water reach from the Marina in the east, over the glittering Pier and on to the bay at Worthing in the west, so you can watch both the sun set as you get ready for a night out in the city, and rise when you get home – this is Brighton after all! For more intimate evenings, the room has retained the original wooden shutters and the elegant fireplace has a clean and convenient gas fire installed. Beautifully thought through, the kitchen/diner is discrete from the main living area but still sociable as there are wide doorways into the reception at both ends and it has its own stately window where the current owners have placed their dining table to make the most of the panoramic views. The streamlined kitchen has plenty of ivory units which are topped by cool white surfaces and the appliances, including a sleek gas hob, electric oven, fridge and freezer are all integrated for you. As you would expect of a design of this quality, there is an easy flow into the dining area which has ample storage of its own and there is no need to clutter the space as there is a separate utility room on the landing below.
Set quietly apart at the end of a sizeable hallway with yet more storage, the spacious guest bedroom is on the west side of the building for the gentle evening sunshine and has a chic cloakroom conveniently close by. The central staircase rises beneath a sky light and at the top, the master bedroom is particularly light and airy as it has windows in opposite walls. With restful proportions, the room is warmly decorated and shares a vaulted bathroom lined in marble with the third double bedroom, which shimmers in gold and has access to the fabulous large balcony spanning the front of the building, watching over the sparkling coastline and secured by a stone balustrade. The property also has access out onto a roof space that offers views of the city.
Bear in mind:
This is one of just six very private apartments, with spectacular sea views in a secure but friendly building with a communal gym and wonderful tunnel to the beach – purportedly built so that the King could make discreet visits to the building behind.
“The close proximity to the heart of town and the secret tunnel direct to the beach helps make this a dream property. With breathtaking sea views and unique character the building is truly special. It has been a great pleasure to live here.”
