Why you’ll like it:
On a leafy street close to the sea, the shops and the station, this imposing Victorian house is in a prime location within the West Hill conservation area and has an impressive entrance stepping up past scented roses to a door which is secured by an entry phone. Inside, the communal hall is clean and tidy and the door to this apartment is straight ahead.
Inside is a welcoming hall leading off in two directions so you get an immediate sense of space and through the open doorway to your right, the graceful proportions of the living room do not disappoint. With a broad bay window bringing in views of the leafy street and attractive period terraces the room is nice and light, and there is plenty of space for dining or relaxing in front of the rare, open fireplace which has useful shelves and cupboards to each side. Next door the guest bedroom is a comfortable double, so also good for sharers, and the big south facing window brings a glimpse of the sea in winter.
Opposite the front door the inner lobby, which has a big cupboard for coats and bags, leads to the master bedroom which looks over the sheltered garden through a vast bay with storage beneath it offering the perfect place for cushions so you can enjoy the garden – which are like gold dust in this central location- to the full. High above your head, intricate friezes still wend their way around the room and the tall fitted wardrobes have been sensitively built in a traditional style. The glass along the wall behind you allows natural light to filter into the simply but stylishly decorated bathroom nicely situated just next door and which has a shower above the white bath.
The passageway leading to the contemporary kitchen has an attic space above your head, and the kitchen itself is bright and cheerful with windows in two of the walls as well as a semi glazed door leading to the garden. The units are soft cream and the work surfaces wooden to match the shelving, so there is plenty of storage in here and the gas hob, electric oven, and dishwasher are all integrated for you. There is space and plumbing available for a washing machine.
Outside, the landscaped garden is a real sun trap as, most unusually, it is open to the south, but the central eating area is partly shaded by the boughs of a delicate tree and this delightful space with deep flower beds and three levels is surprisingly private for this convenient spot.
Bear in mind:
Located in the central “golden triangle”, you can walk to the sea, the shops and the station from this spacious apartment as well as popular parks which host events in the Brighton Arts Festival.
