Why you’ll like it:


Beautifully located between the Lanes and the Marina, this unique, listed terrace of three houses is set well back from the road behind a garden which also has rare parking. With unusual, level access, classic chequered tiling leads to a smart front door secured by an answer phone, and waiting inside are curved walls and delicate plaster work.


The hallway of the apartment is a languid zig zag, with stairs to the right adding to the immediate feeling of space and movement. Going down these stairs, the surprise is that you then have to up again, rather like in an ocean liner, and you enter a remarkable living room, dominated by the sea views which pour through three curving windows ahead, following the sun from east to west. There is a handsome marble fireplace to your left and original plaster friezes follow the gently rounded room around high above your head. On a more human scale than some Regency apartments, the ceilings are still higher than most contemporary homes and there is plenty of wall space for art and floor space for relaxing or for entertaining.


Returning to the hallway, the peaceful bedroom is quietly situated at the back of the house, with generous, restful proportions and a soothing Farrow and Ball palette which will probably all help to contribute to a good night’s sleep! Relatively private for the central location, the large sash window and intricate friezes overhead add character and there are useful fitted shelves already in place.


The curl in the wall from the bedroom leads you around to an atmospheric passageway with arches and period finials and through a wide door with etched glass into an airy kitchen, traditional in style, with a brick floor and plenty of white painted units topped by honey coloured work surfaces on each side of the room. The gas hob and electric oven are integrated and there is both room for an under counter fridge and plumbing for a machine, which is beneath the wide, east facing window.


Leading from this room is a practical bathroom with an unusual, stone coloured barley twist suite, which you may want to replace in time (thereby adding value, of course), but this room is lovely and bright and is large enough for both a bath and a separate shower.


Bear in mind:


Built to impress in 1851, it continues to do so both with its location and the rare combination of a communal garden with sea views and private parking.


Owner’s secret:


“It’s a great to have the choice between the beach, the garden, the shops or the theatre, and then to retreat to the peace of the apartment”


Where it is:


Shops: Kemp Town Village 2 minutes, Lanes about 15 minute walk, Brighton centre 6 minutes by bus


Train Station: Brighton Station about 15 minutes by bus


Seafront or Park: Seafront is opposite, Queens Park 10 minute walk


Closest Schools:


Primary: Queen’s Park Primary


Secondary: Varndean/Dorothy Stringer


Private: Brighton College, Brighton and Hove High



This elegant apartment is just minutes from the fashionable Kemp Town Village with its bookshop, cafes and specialist shops (butchers, cheese and wine to name but a few). The Georgian Lanes and Pavilion are within an easy walk as are the Hospital and Marina, and its proximity to the train station and the A23/A27 makes this home an interesting prospect for those searching for a full or part time retreat, or thinking of an investment property.
