What The Owners Say - "We knew as soon as we walked in that this was the apartment for us, it's got that instant wow factor.

We love that it's in a grand setting yet still has an inviting feel. The living area is our favourite place, it's open and large but with defined sections. Even with 4m tall ceilings the living room is cosy and it feels like a lived-in home.

We will miss the garden, it's really big for a central Brighton property. There's lots of private space for parties and entertaining, and it's really lovely to sit and relax in too.

We moved down from London and wanted to be in the heart of everything and this is the perfect location. It's only a short walk to the station if you need to commute, minutes from the seafront and the Laines, yet still on a quiet road.

This apartment has given us everything, there's no other property like it in Brighton."

In The Local Area - The Old Court House is located within a few minutes walk to the seafront, Brighton Pier and the popular independent shops of the North Laine area.

The Royal Pavilion with its landscaped gardens are only moments, while the wide variety of shops, restaurants and theatres that Brighton offers are all close at hand.

Brighton train station is under a mile away and offers convenient mainline services for commuters and there are regular bus services to take you across Brighton and Hove and onto the South Downs.

Local schools include Carlton Hill Primary, Tarnerland Nursery, Middle Street Primary and Royal Spa Nursery School.
