commuter pad | This smart one bedroom flat sits on the first floor of a modern purpose built block, just minutes from Hove Station and Seafront. It is tucked away in its own grounds behind mature trees, yet it is still very central, and is within walking distance of both Western Road and Church Road’s vibrant mix of shops, bars and restaurants. It is well presented, with good room proportions and also benefits from a covered west facing terrace and a parking space - a premium in this part of the city. Being so well located means that this flat would suit commuters, investors and professional sharers alike.

Bedrooms: 1 double

Living rooms: 1 spacious

Area: 516 SQ.FT; 47.9 SQ.M

Outside: West facing sun terrace

Location: Willett Estate CA

Why you’ll like it:

This low rise block has a smart red brick exterior, and you approach through the spacious parking area, and through double doors with a secure entry phone system, to a neat communal hallway where you can take the lift or stairs to the first floor. Once inside the apartment, there is a wide entrance hall with a deep cupboard for coats and shoes to keep the flat clutter free, and another huge, double depth storage cupboard ahead which also doubles up as a utility room.

The bathroom is first on the right, and although it is an internal room, it is well lit, well ventilated, and in fantastic decorative order with glossy wall tiles and a modern white suite with an electric shower above the bath.

Caramel carpets lead you down the hallway to the living room which is next on the left, and this is a generous room with lots of light from the west through sliding doors leading out to the balcony. This has relaxing leafy views, and can be used all year round. There’s ample space in the living room for seating as well as dining, and the kitchen is conveniently adjoined. This is fitted with shaker style units in a pale lemon, and has an integrated oven and gas hob. There is space for a tall fridge freezer, and the splashbacks are on trend in white metro brick.

The bedroom is at the end of the hall and is a sizable double with a triple free-standing wardrobe with a mirrored door to bounce the light around. This is a tranquil space, again with green views, so it is hard to believe you are so close to the city. The block itself is very quiet, so it is perfect if you work from home, and the neighbours are all friendly so you feel part of a community.

Bear in mind:

The flat currently has night storage heating, but this can easily be changed as the flat already has gas, or the could be changed for energy efficient and sleek electric wall heaters if you choose.
