Why you’ll like it 


One of Brighton’s most favoured addresses, this Regency Terrace with bay frontage and delicate balconies is set well back from the coast road behind a wall and lawn.  The entrance to this impressive building, which is the one the developer chose for himself to live in, is on a quiet side street. The large Doric porch has a smart black and white tiled step and the wide black door which is secured by an entry video opens into a charming foyer with chinoiserie inspired wrought iron staircases leading both up and down. The front door to this apartment is on the ground floor through the glazed door ahead and is beyond the lift, so nice and private.


Inside, an L shaped hallway with wonderfully high ceilings and lush, thick carpet welcomes you in and it is clear as you pass a double cupboard, walk in closet and stylish shelving that storage is not an issue in this well thought through apartment. The sun drenched living room at the front of the building has two windows following the curve of the building through which glorious sea views pour, stretching from the protective arm of the Marina across an open horizon to a peek of the end of the glittering Pier to the west. With the generous proportions of the Regency Era, the room is painted a soft dove grey and there is still a delicately worked cornice around the room. To the left in the far wall is a rare and useful door to the south facing terrace, once the original house entrance and which has retained all its grandeur. Behind you, a streamlined kitchen is discrete from the main living space but is still sociable and has plenty of gleaming grey units topped by smooth stone. The gas hob, electric oven, fridge, freezer and dishwasher are already integrated for you and there is concealed plumbing and power for a washing machine and drier. Lights in the extractor means that you can make the mood more subtle and you can also change the tenor in the main living space thanks to the dimmer switches.


Thoughtfully organised, the two spacious bedrooms are at the back of the building, each with ample wardrobes and shelving in place. The guest room is opposite the luxury bathroom which features a dual head shower system above the contemporary bath, a lit mirrored cabinet and a sumptuous heated rail. The master bedroom is privately separated from the rest of the apartment by a door at the end of the lobby and has the restful proportions and large window of the Regency Era, but also has a very much 21st Century, chic en suite shower room.


Bear in mind:


This beautiful apartment with a direct sea view is close to the Marina and Kemp Town Village and is ready to move into
