This would also be a great holiday 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 of at the bottom of the road.
This flat sits atop the townhouse, where after a short climb past beautiful stained glass windows, you come to a small landing shared by one other. Your door opens straight into the generous open plan living room and kitchen, and the majority of this room has fawn carpet, apart from around the kitchenette which has practical vinyl. The kitchenette forms an L shape along the left wall and ahead, and has beech units which are topped with a dark granite effect work surface. Below this there is space and plumbing for a washing machine, and also an under counter fridge. The oven and hob are electric and in white, and these are integrated. A tall, west facing sash window makes the room very light, and this looks out to the attractive flint church opposite. There's space in the living area for a small table and chairs as well as a sofa, and there’s a useful built in cupboard for coats and shoes to keep the space clutter free.
The spacious double bedroom is next door, and this is also carpeted, with magnolia walls, and a period fireplace with a white surround and a cast iron insert. There is ample room in here for a large double bed as well as freestanding wardrobes, and this too has a westerly orientation meaning that the room is shed with a lovely warm light in the afternoons. The shower room is en suite, and this is on trend with white brick tiles around the shower cubicle.
While this flat is not huge, it does have lots going for it, and it doesn’t feel cramped due to it’s high ceilings and large windows. The potential is there to add value without spending the earth, so this could be a very popular purchase for a developer.
Bear in mind:
Unfortunately the building doesn't have a lift, and there are a few flights of stairs to be climbed, but 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.”
