Why you’ll like it:


Seven Dials has been one of the most desirable locations to live in the city for many years now, and this is not only due to the eclectic mix of shops and bars, plus the vibrant cafe culture, but also the striking Regency architecture, and its proximity to the city, the station and the beach. It is truly cosmopolitan, and that’s what attracts so many people here.


The townhouse is fresh in cream with neat architectural details, and you approach up the original tiled path where the main door in scarlet opens into a communal hallway, and your door is on the right. This opens into a small entrance hall with hooks for coats, and once inside it is immediately apparent that this is a generous flat with fantastic room proportions. The living room is first on the right and has two almost full height windows facing south which flood the room with light. The new fawn carpets complement the cream walls, and the woodwork and period detailing have been picked out in white so they look like new. These include and ornate ceiling rose, and panelling below the window. Taking centre stage is a grand marble fireplace with a cast iron insert flanked by decorative tiles; so quintessentially Victorian, and perfect for keeping you warm in the cooler months. There’s more than enough space for separate seating, work and dining areas, so it is a versatile and sociable room.


The bedroom is next door and shares the same high ceilings as the living room, and has a full wall of built in wardrobes. It is peacefully located to the rear of the flat, and you get leafy views of the neighbouring gardens framed by another elegant sash window.


The bathroom conveniently is next door, just down the hallway past deep under stair storage. It is fresh in white, with glossy tiling on the walls, wood panelling around the bath, and a shower over this providing instant hot water from the gas combination boiler.


The kitchen is at the far end of the flat, and has been newly fitted with chic matt units in dove grey, and these are topped with a light wood effect surface for warmth and contrast. The gas hob and electric oven are integrated, and there’s space and plumbing for a washing machine and a fridge below, plus the sink has been thoughtfully placed below the window, so you can look out over the fig and apple trees as you wash up.


Bear in mind:


The living room is so spacious that the kitchen could be moved in here making it open plan, and putting a second bedroom in its place….food for thought!
