Why you’ll like it:
Completed by Thomas Cubitt by 1855 with glorious proportions and a fluted Doric porch, you mount the stairs, open the gate and the grand front door and step into an atmospheric, stone lined lobby as generations have done before you. A decorative ceiling is high above your head and there are glimpses through a vast door to a long, broad hallway and huge doorways leading off to rooms as yet unseen, so you get a real feeling of grandeur.
To your right, sunlight and sea views pour into the elegant living room through tall windows which have retained their original shutters and where intricate vines still wend their way high above the room. There is a handsome feature fireplace and on the left wall, stylish shelving frames the large opening to the kitchen, reached through a door in the hallway. The warm toned contemporary kitchen is, therefore, discrete but sociable and a breakfast bar is beneath the opening to the living room, so friends can join you as you cook and still enjoy the sea, and as there are two levels of lighting you can choose your mood. The electric hob is beneath an extractor with both the Siemens grill and oven close by in a tower and all of the other appliances, including the fridge freezer, dishwasher and washing machine are all integrated for you, so this is a kitchen waiting to entertain.
Through a hall decorated in designer paper and which is so large that it doubles as a dining room, to your right, the spacious master bedroom has a soaring ceiling with a Greco-Roman inspired frieze around it and with a huge window looking across the light well is both quiet and bright. There is also a whole wall of wardrobes, so this room is also ready to move into.
Progressing towards the back of the building, as this large apartment spans the whole of the ground floor, there is a boiler/storage room to the right and a sliding door opposite reveals a modern bathroom with a blue glass panel, twin hand basins and heated towel rails and there is a shower above the shaped bath. At the end of the hall, which has a side window bringing in plenty of light, the guest room is airy, private and peaceful and has lots of storage space already built in.
Bear in mind:
Once the home of composer Richard Addinsel this seafront terrace remains one of Brighton’s most desirable addresses.
