This attractive 1960s development sits happily amongst its Regency neighbours, with this generous two bedroom apartment taking prime spot at the top. It is from this elevated position it can boast the most spectacular views over roof and treetops to the vast expanse of the sea to the south, and also to the rolling hills of The South Downs to the west. It is well presented with wooden floors throughout and delightfully bright due to large picture windows on three sides. It also boasts a private garage, and is within easy walking distance of Brighton Station and the city, so it would suit commuters, downsizers, holiday let investors and professionals alike.

In brief:

Style: Top (3rd) floor flat in a 1960s apartment block

Bedrooms: 2 double

Living rooms: 1 very spacious

Location: Clifton Hill/Montpelier Conservation Area

Parking: Large single garage

Why you’ll like it:

Clifton Hill Conservation Area is famed for its hilly setting, with rows of treelined terraces leading down through Western Road to the sea. This development is on a quiet road, just north of the city centre, and has a smart pale brick facade which is soon to be fully renovated to return it to its former glory. To the front it looks out to the pretty Victorian terraces, gleaming in white, and so typical of the area, and to the rear, lush greenery, and the peaceful walled gardens of St Peter’s Church. You enter through glazed double doors, and climb the well lit stairwell to the top floor landing where your door is clearly marked to the left.

You are welcomed into a wide L shaped hallway, where wooden beech floorboards and fresh white walls flow throughout for continuity. It is immediately apparent that this is spacious and airy flat, as you enter the first double bedroom and become aware of the natural light and the first of the views through the generous window. From here you can see the patchwork hills of the Downs, church spires piercing the topography, and can only imagine the sunsets which will light up the expanse of sky. This room has ample space for a king size bed and has a deep built in wardrobe maximising the floor space for further pieces of bedroom furniture. The second bedroom is next to this, and is of a similar size and orientation, and with the same storage and decor.

Across the hall you’ll find the newly fitted bathroom, with a glossy white bath suite, and a tall heated towel rail to complement. The shower is over the bath, with a glass shower door, and the floor and walls are adorned with ceramic sandstone effect tiling.

The hallway turns to the right, and passing two double storage cupboards, you find the kitchen on the left. This is a very good size for the keen cook, with units along two sides, and plenty of surface space. The wooden units echo the tone of the floor, and the appliances, including a cooker, a fridge and a freezer are all freestanding to the left. The washing machine is tucked away in a cupboard which also houses the gas boiler, but these could be incorporated into the room with little effort.

A large hatch is open to the living and dining room next door, so you could imagine it being one large open plan space, but it allows for sociability as it is too. The living room is a great size, and this allows for distinct dining and seating areas, with room for a sizable sofa in the square bay window. It is double aspect, so it enjoys yet more sea views, yet the i360 is just obscured - a blessing many would say!

This is a fantastic apartment, in a favourable location, and with private parking too; it is sure to be snapped up.

Bear in mind:

All shelving and furniture currently in the apartment can stay if you wish - great news for rental investors looking to let it out with ease.
