Why you’ll like it:


In a stately building decorated with Ionic pillars and intricate balconies, the entrance is very grand beneath a porch surmounting classical columns. Inside, the unusually broad communal hallway is clearly cared for and sensor lighting guides you to the lift which is at the base of a sweeping staircase. The front door to the apartment is on the first floor behind a door to a lobby shared by only one other apartment, and opens into a hallway gleaming with Osborne and Little paper and a polished oak floor which continues through into the stunning reception on your right.


Sunlight streams in through the twin sets of French doors and windows which open onto finely wrought Juliette balconies to allow you to fully appreciate the wonderful views of the English Channel seen over the manicured garden square which are the focus of the room. With the refined proportions of the period, there is ample space for relaxing or entertaining and in the centre of the south wall is a feature fireplace in a style in keeping with the age of the building. Behind you, the chic kitchen is discreetly tucked away so that although sociable it doesn’t impinge into the main living area and with two levels of lighting and a dimmer switch you can choose the mood. The large window makes the space feel airy and the light glimmers in the black glossy units providing plenty of smooth surfaces into which the electric hob is integrated beneath an unobtrusive extractor. The oven, fridge and freezer are also integrated for you and as there is plumbing already in place for a dishwasher (the washing machine is secreted elsewhere) this kitchen is ready to party.


The spacious bedroom is made for romance with its dreamy French doors to the balcony and you can lie in bed unseen on lazy Sundays enjoying the sea or people having a happy time together in the gardens and it is worth noting that most unusually, as this building is not listed, all of the doors to the balconies are energy efficient and as they are south facing are they also fitted with electric blinds for shade. The muted, restful palette chosen by the designer continues in here and the glorious views are reflected in the mirrored wardrobes which are fitted for you.


The deft touch of one of the UK’s most talented designers continues in the luxury shower room, with dramatic dark tones and low level lighting creating a wonderfully luxurious atmosphere. The large walk in shower has a rainfall head as acknowledgement of the history of the building, the contemporary heated towel rail is close to hand so you feel properly pampered and the opaque brick window ensures complete privacy.



Bear in mind:


Lee Brooms’ work is acknowledged internationally and his awards include British Designer of the Year 2012 and The Queens Award for enterprise 2015. He has featured in Vogue as well as other respected publications and has shops in London and New York.



Owner’s secret:


“The sun sets in high summer at the bottom of St James’ Street so we open the French doors and bathe in the glow”



Where it is:


Shops: St James’ Street 1 minutes


Station: Brighton mainline about 10 minutes by bus


Seafront or park: Seafront 2 minute walk, New Steine Gardens 1 minute
