Elegant 4/5 Bedroom Grade II* Listed House in an Historic Brighton Crescent with Landscaped Gardens and Separate Self Contained Apartment.

Ideally situated for all that Brighton and Hove has to offer, this beautiful four storey home is located in one of the city's most iconic Regency crescents.

Elegant colour schemes and beautifully presented original features combine to create a fantastic example of contemporary living in a period property. Set inside a distinctive Grade II* listed building with a stucco facade, the amenities of Seven Dials and Western Road are within easy reach.

Ground Floor - South-facing full height sash windows complete with original wood shutters allow natural light to cascade into a large formal dining room highlighting the intricate architraves and tall ceiling. Soft rose pink walls add to the refined feel while an impressive period fireplace creates an instant focal point.

An abundance of natural light flows into the generously sized Harvey Jones kitchen. Bespoke Shaker style cabinets nestle beneath stain resistant Silestone countertops and encompass a luxurious array of Miele integrated appliances and an under-mounted Franke sink with a separate Kinetico drinking tap. Beautifully lit from an expansive multi-paned window, which looks out onto the colourful rear garden, aqua blue glass splashbacks inject a splash of colour while a dark charcoal column radiator reminds you of the charm and character of this truly distinguished home.

A guest WC with stylish feature patterned walls completes the ground floor while a demi glazed door opens onto the rear garden.

First Floor - A large sash window dominates the wide half landing continuing the beautiful flow of natural light which engenders a calm and peaceful feel.

The refined elegance of the ground floor is echoed in the distinguished main reception room where three tall sash windows look out onto to the attractive front garden. Intricate architraves encompass the tall ceiling emphasising the space on offer while a period fireplace features a detailed black grate and imposing marble surround.

Sumptuous rich red walls create a dramatic effect in the adjacent study balancing with the rich wood tones of a tall Grange cabinet and a further period fireplace. Generously proportioned the room offers plenty of dual space potential as a further bedroom or sitting room.

An integrated B & O hifi system is independently controlled from the reception room, study, and the kitchen and dining room on the ground floor.

Second Floor - A feature mallow wall injects a soft splash of colour amongst the pale grey and white palette of the master bedroom. A fireplace sits within a wide chimney breast lending a warm and inviting feel while double doors open onto a well-appointed dressing room with a wealth of bespoke fitted wardrobes.

Flowing on from the dressing area an opaque glass door slides open to reveal a luxurious en suite bathroom with underfloor heating where a Kaldewei bath and wall-hung Duravit Starck WC provide contemporary living comforts.

Modern fitted wardrobes provide a wealth of storage in the fifth bedroom whose sash window offers a birds eye view of the iconic crescent.

A family shower room, also with under floor heating provides further Duravit fittings while tasteful pale tiles provide a stylish backdrop to the Axor walk-in shower.

Lower Ground Floor - Configured to offer a separate self-contained apartment with its own street entrance or additional guest accommodation, the lower ground floor benefits from a versatile open plan layout.

A spacious dual aspect living area benefits from ample space for delineated sleeping and seating/dining areas and effortlessly continues the tasteful aesthetics of the main house. Two tall sash windows look out onto the front garden while modern sliding doors open onto a stone patio at the rear effortlessly extending this sociable space.

Beech cabinets line the walls of the separate kitchen housing an integrated CDA gas hob and Creda oven while sleek black countertops provide ample work space.

Echoing the luxury finish of the other bathrooms, a contemporary white suite with Grohe fittings is arranged in a marble tile setting.

A separate utility cupboard provides space for a washing machine and tumble drier.

Outside - Landscaped to be in-keeping with the history of the property an immaculately kept front garden creates a majestic first impression of this Regency home. A classic black iron gate sits beside a tall fir hedgerow and opens onto a carefully tended and arranged mixture of buxus and photinia while stone steps lead up to a distinguished front door.

The demi glazed door of the ground floor hallway opens onto a beautifully planted garden where borders of tall established palms, euphorbia, aucuba and hydrangeas offer plenty of privacy and interest throughout the seasons. Wide raised beds encompass a large shingle surface perfect for outdoor entertaining and enjoying the idyllic and peaceful environment.

A paved patio offers the opportunity to chase the sun throughout the day while stone steps curve their way down to the lower ground floor patio.

What The Owners Say - "When we first saw this house 13 years ago it was the size of the rooms, the high ceilings and the light streaming in that we instantly loved.

Its position was really important to us for easy access to London and we're lucky enough to be in a fantastic central location where we can walk to Waitrose, the Dome and the seafront.

The study and the kitchen are our favourite places to spend time and the house is wonderful for entertaining, we've had lots of nice parties here in the lovely big living room.

It's so peaceful here and we'll miss the sheer amount of space, we'll never get that back again. This house offers such easy living."

In The Local Area - Located in the Montpelier and Clifton Conservation area and described by the council as one of the "outstanding examples of late Regency architecture" and "probably one of Brighton's most famous landmarks", Montpelier Crescent is just around the corner from the popular shops, bars and cafes of Seven Dials.

The seafront, Western Road and central Brighton and Hove are all within easy reach and Brighton station with its mainline links for commuters is only a short walk away.

Local schools include Brighton and Hove High School, St Paul's C of E Primary School and Nursery and St Mary Magdalen Primary School, while Lancing Prep and Windlesham School are both nearby.
