Why you’ll like it:


Built and completed in the mid 19th Century by the renowned architect Amon Henry Wilds, these regal townhouses are considered to be some of the most impressive in the city. They were constructed at a time when Brighton was becoming the most fashionable place to live outside of the capital, and they still command the same air of superiority today. This flat is on the ground floor of a Grade II listed house on the edge of the crescent which encircles communal lawns and mature trees, and is set back from the street behind a lawned front garden and a hedgerow.


You approach up some wide stone steps and and through the grand front door and into bright communal hall where your door is on the right. This opens into a bright L shaped entrance hall where dark wooden floorboards flow into the bedrooms and living room to the right. The ceilings are high and the original panelled doors have been adorned with glass orb handles. The period cornicing, architraves and skirtings remain, and the south westerly full length windows have their original timber shutters.


Bedroom two is first on the right, and is a gracious room with access to the balcony which is the width of the property so it can be accessed from the living room next door too. There’s ample space out here for a table and chairs, and it is slightly raised so you can look out over the green and watch the world go by.


Taking centre stage in the living room is the feature chimney breast with modern baroque wallpaper in deep red surrounding the cast iron fireplace and mantle; in keeping with the character of the property. Light floods in through two full height sash windows and these frame the lovely view from the dining table.


The master bedroom looks out over the rear garden, and is of the same impressive proportions of bedroom two, but also has a full wall of built in wardrobes and storage. The bathroom is conveniently next door and this has a contemporary suite to include a freestanding bathtub with central taps for comfortable bathing, and a walk in shower with fixed glazing and a rainfall shower head. The floor has a large tile in slate grey to complement the feature floral wallpaper, and a modern heated towel rail completes the polished look.


Following the hallway round, to the rear of the property, you come to the kitchen. The units are plenty in light wood, and the appliances are all freestanding below the counter, apart from the electric oven and gas hob. A door leads out to the garden from here which is a tranquil oasis with flint walls, seating areas and beds for planting on the borders. It is the perfect size for gatherings and for dining al fresco, and is easy to maintain as it is neatly paved.


This flat has an abundance of charm and character, and being so well presented and in a favourable location, it is bound to be snapped up. As well as having amble storage in the flat, there is also a communal store room which can be used for leisure items such as bikes and camping equipment.


Bear in mind:


Unfortunately there is a waiting list for this parking zone, but there are many busses which stop at Seven Dials, and an excellent cycle path system should you chose to be car free.
