Set in a fantastic location between Brighton and Hove Stations, and just a few minutes from the beach and the city centre, this stylish one bedroom flat would suit many. It is on the first floor of a smart Victorian terraced house, and it has retained many original features including sash windows and a gorgeous marble fireplace. There has been a new Valiant  combi boiler fitted in December 2016, the front and rear external paint works have been done within the last 18 months and the lease has been extended to over 150 years. Please note the internal decoration of the communal hallways is happening currently. The kitchen is on trend with a modern palette, and the high ceilings and west facing bay window mean the flat is lovely and light. 


In brief:


Style: 1st floor flat in a Victorian terrace


Bedrooms: 1 double


Living rooms: 1 spacious


Location: Brunswick Town Conservation Area


Parking: Residents Permit Parking Zone M


Why you’ll like it:


The exterior of this Victorian townhouse has been freshly painted in grey, with its architectural features picked out in white, and wide stone steps take you up to the original panelled front door in fashionable aubergine. Once inside the neat communal hallway, stairs take you up to the first floor landing where your door is on the left. This opens up to a short hallway, which to the left, opens up to the bright and spacious living room.


The west facing bay window fills the room with light and there’s easily enough space in the bay for a small dining table and chairs, allowing for room elsewhere for comfortable sofas and chairs. The deep alcoves would be perfect to fit shelving, of for artwork, and these flank the grand marble fireplace, which could potentially be opened with some professional investigation. The floor is laminate, in warm honey tones, but the original floorboards would be underneath, as is shown in the kitchen.


This is accessible from the living room, although it is separate, and it has a wooden units in mid grey topped with solid oak work surfaces. The walls are a shade darker, and the fridge freezer and dishwasher are integrated. The washing machine is freestanding, and may potentially stay, and the butler sink, with a brass arch tap, has been thoughtfully placed below the window.


Returning to the hall, the double bedroom is on the left. This has a raised double bed to maximise the floorspace, which works very well allowing lots of room for clothes storage below, but it could easily be removed to allow for a standard bed too. This is peacefully located to the rear of the building, with a peaceful outlook over the walled gardens below, and is neutrally decorated with white walls and a pale latte carpet.


The bathroom is conveniently next door down a couple of steps, and is traditionally tiled in white, with turquoise blue on the floor for a splash of colour. The suite is white, and has a shower over the bath, and there’s a useful vanity unit below the hand basin.


This flat already has many attractive features, but there is still the potential to modernise and add value, or simply to put your own stamp on, without needing to break the bank.


Bear in mind:


The lease will have been extended to over 125 years at the point of completion.
