Why you’ll like it:

On a hill above the heart of this coastal city, this apartment is opposite a leafy development within walking distance of the beach, the Lanes and the station, and this fabulous location is also between the recreational facilities of The Level and Queen’s Park. In an attractive red brick terrace, you would also be very close to a planned pedestrian plaza. Fully refurbished, the building now has energy efficient double glazing and this apartment has its own private entrance set behind smart floral railings with sensor lighting to guide you home at night.

Inside is an inviting hallway with plenty of storage and new oak flooring which continues into the bright and cheerful living room. There is plenty of space for relaxing or entertaining, with wooden venetian blinds, ceilings are high and the walls freshly painted, and this stylish electric coal effect fireplace brings both character and warmth to the room. Next door, the double bedroom is light and airy with a big window looking over the wide side return and up to the garden, and again, is completely ready for you to move into as two of the three cupboards in the hall are well placed to be used as a wardrobe, if you didn’t have one already.

At the end of the hall a glazed door opens into a tasteful contemporary kitchen with gleaming cream units topped by warm coloured work surfaces. The electric hob, oven and extractor fan are integrated for you and there is space for a tall fridge freezer and plumbing for a washing machine. The boiler for the heating is gas and is discreetly tucked between the window to the side and the door into the garden. The door in the far wall leads through to a brand new bathroom with a window and a white suite which has a shower above the bath. The w.c., tucked into a room of its own to the right, also has a window in it. 

Outside, the bones of a fabulous garden are all there with steps leading up to flower beds stocked with mature roses, fuchsias’ and hydrangeas and as it is open to the south, it is a real sun trap – but don’t worry as there’s an outside tap for the hose. A path leads past the lawn to a private seating area beneath the tall flint wall which is draped with Virginia creeper and you can see trees and shrubs at the top, making the garden feel very private and even bigger than it already is!

Bear in mind:

Brighton is famous for its lifestyle and culture, which are right on the doorstep, as well as the beach. The Lanes are full of Georgian character- and designer shops and great restaurants, and are just a short walk away.

Owner’s secret:

“This is a friendly place to live and we love being able to entertain in the garden after a hot day on the beach.”

Where it is:

Shops: Local 2 minutes, Lanes 5 minute walk

Train Station: Brighton Mainline 10-15 minute walk, 5 minute cycle

Seafront or Park: Beach is about 5 minute walk, Tarner Park is around the corner

Closest Schools:

Primary: Carlton Hill Primary

Secondary: Varndean or Dorothy Stringer

Private: Brighton College

This bright and spacious apartment is just minutes from the fashionable Lanes with its shops, bars and restaurants. The beach and Pavilion are within an easy walk as are the Hospital and schools, 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.
