Why you’ll like it:

The stunning Grade I listed Regency terraces of Brunswick Terrace are integral to Brighton and Hove’s unique identity as a cosmopolitan city of style and taste. They were built in 1824 by architect Charles Busby as Brighton had become very fashionable for the top tiers of society, and they were suitably impressed by the curved ‘Brunswick Cream’ facades with their Ionic and Corinthian columns. Although many of the houses have now been converted into apartments, they still retain an air of grandeur, and Brunswick is still one of the most prestigious addresses in the city.

This apartment resides on the first floor, which was the floor used for entertaining in ballroom-esque style reception rooms, so they benefit from the highest ceilings and full height windows making them the most popular apartment to obtain. You enter the smart communal hallway, and climb up the sweeping carpeted stairs to the first floor where your front door is on the left. You are welcomed in to a spacious carpeted entrance hall from which all the rooms reside. The property also benefits from gas fired central heating throughout.

The master bedroom is first on the right, and the caramel carpets flow into here and throughout for continuity. The window in here mirrors those in the living room, and opens out to the full width balcony, and to the ever changing sea views over Hove Lawns and Promenade. It is a good size double, with built in mirrored wardrobes, and plenty of floor space for other pieces of bedroom furniture.

The delightful open plan living room is next door, with two windows, also opening to the balcony and the seaside vista. The period detailing is stunning in here with a ceiling rose and delicate cornicing so favoured in this era, and the scale of the room gives you a sense of awe to think of the grand balls that once took place here. The kitchen is recessed to the rear of the room, and while it is a sizable in itself, it does not impose on the space. The units are plenty in light wood, topped with a practical, sage work surface, and the appliances are all freestanding below including a separate fridge and a separate freezer. Taking centre stage is the grand fireplace with cast iron insert.

Bedroom two looks out from the rear of the house and has a fantastic window giving great light to the room. This room is also a good size, so perfect for professional sharers, and this also has a large cupboard which houses the washing machine and dryer behind sliding doors with a large linen cupboard. The bathroom is conveniently next door, and is traditionally styled in both its white suite, mahogany woodwork, and the classic black and white vinyl flooring.

Bear in mind:

The ceilings are so high that there are several options to add a mezzanine floor without compromising light or space.
