Behind an unassuming arched gate in the heart of Brunswick Town sits a pretty sunken courtyard garden, leading through to a spacious and individual two bedroom, two bathroom apartment. It was once part of the grand kitchens to serve the Regency townhouses of the main Square, so it enjoys the high ceilings, and gracious room proportions that these buildings afford. The city and beach are just a minute or two away, with a wonderful mix of boutique shops, restaurants and bars at the top of the road, and with Brighton and Hove’s Stations just ten minutes away, this flat would perfectly suit anyone looking for an exclusive and unique home by the sea.

Why you’ll like it:
Brunswick Town was the brainchild of acclaimed 19th Century architect Charles Busby, and he undoubtedly would have been impressed with how the area has evolved since then. The roads that were once stables and service houses have been transformed in recent decades, and are now a wonderful mix of contemporary and unique homes.
You would be forgiven for not knowing this pretty garden apartment is here, as it is tucked away behind a wall with a secure gate, and from here you walk down some stone steps into a tranquil courtyard garden. This is a good size for such a central apartment, and has raised beds for planting, as well as space for social gatherings. An outdoor store room houses the washing machine, and has extra space for your garden tools and furniture, plus it is very secure as hidden from view from the street.
You enter centrally where you have an extension to your left which is almost fully glazed and is currently being used as a sizable workshop, but could just as easily be a second reception/ dining room or sunroom. Steps lead you down into the main living room which has soaring ceilings, parquet flooring; all lit by a large skylight, and there’s ample space for comfortable seating, as well as a dining table and chairs. A decorative white brick fireplace could be opened for fires in the cooler months, but also creates a focal point to the room, and has use as a mantle.
The kitchen is to the right, up a couple of steps, and this is partially open to the living room as there is space between the upper and lower units, forming an arm into the room. The units are a rich walnut tone to echo the floor, and these are topped with a dark granite effect surface, into which the gas hob is inlaid. The electric oven is also integrated, but the tall fridge freezer is freestanding.
A wide carpeted corridor leads you to the rear of the property, past hooks for coats, where the master bedroom is first on the left. This shares the same generous proportions of the living room, and is again naturally lit from above. The opening in the chimney breast would have housed the original kitchen fire or ovens, but now makes the perfect recess for a chest of drawers, and tall wardrobes have been built into the alcove surrounding it. The en suite bathroom has a grey marble effect tile, and a tall shower cubicle, and a deep cupboard for your towels. Unusually, this goes right through to the hallway, so you can store your cleaning/house equipment in there too. The main bathroom is next on the left, and this has a white bathroom suite, natural stone tiling, and a shower above the bath.
Bedroom two is at the end of the hallway, and is just a shade smaller than the master, but still a good double, and also has built in wardrobe space. With two good size bedrooms and two bathrooms, plus the fantastic central location; this apartment would be perfect for professional sharers.
Bear in mind:
While this apartment is attractive and functional as it is, there is still scope for modernisation to add value and to put your own stamp on it.
“There is such a great energy to Brunswick Town - a real sense of community, and so many great pubs and restaurants on your doorstep. The Bottoms Rest is a few seconds away for a fantastic Sunday Roast, and it never tires being so close to the beach.”
