Why you’ll like it:

Designed by Busby and Wilds, Chichester House was finished by 1832 with glorious wide bays, Corinthian pillars and a fluted Doric porch and was originally a Gentleman’s Academy. This beautiful apartment spans over the south and most of the west side of the building and has its own entrance shared by only one other home. Inside, the solid oak floor gleams in a hallway broad enough to dine in and to the right, the stylish kitchen has a large west facing window so that you can prepare supper in the evening light and has plenty of ivory units providing ample work surfaces. On the left, the steel gas hob has the vital fifth ring and beneath it are electric ovens. Both the dishwasher and washing machine are also integrated for you and there is space for a tall fridge freezer for those who like to entertain – although don’t forget that you are surrounded by cafes and restaurants here!

Positioned for privacy within this restful home, the first of the double bedrooms is also along the western face with a cloakroom conveniently opposite and the owner’s light touch of design continues in the subtle use of colour on the feature wall highlighting the fitted wardrobes and drawing the eye to the generous sash window which has attractive wooden shutters. 

Along the hallway, double doors sweep into the elegant living room, full of light thanks to the broad and tall windows in the south wall, designed in an age dependent upon natural light and following the broad sweep of the curve of the building. Bringing in views of the imaginatively planted courtyard with seating placed to make the most of the sun and with the generous proportions of the Regency period, there is plenty of room for relaxing or entertaining and the feature fireplace has traditional shelving to one side.

Past a large cupboard in the hallway, the master bedroom is light and airy with a window which reaches almost to the floor and is decorated in Farrow and Ball’s distinctive hues. Double wardrobes are waiting for your move and next door is a luxury shower room with two levels of lighting, a contemporary dual headed shower with a heated towel rail to hand and the long hand basin rests on dark storage. 

Bear in mind: 

The front courtyard also has a spacious vault reaching beneath the pavements, ideal for bikes and boards, but some in other properties have gyms and saunas in them!
