Why you’ll like it:
This beautiful terrace of wide, bay fronted Regency houses overlook the sea and are all Grade II listed. This apartment is approached through a grand front entrance with an entry phone system and an internal door with a secure code, ideal for every day or for when you need to lock up and leave, and which leads into a large communal hall with gilded cornice and beautiful tiled floor. The lift sweeps you to the second floor, where the apartment has the original wide semi glazed front door with a charming leaded window to the right of it – a reminder that this terrace was apparently amongst the first to be built as private apartments. Spanning the whole depth of this enormous building, each and every room within this apartment is generously proportioned and light, even the internal hallway!
On your left, the drawing room is extraordinary, and you can see that no expense has been spared in bringing this apartment back to glory. Three large windows, which follow the gentle curve of the front of the building, bring in majestic views of the English Channel, and you can follow the coast from the Marina in the east, over the twinkling lights of the Palace Pier, to the distant bay of Worthing to the west. The windows, with hand- made wooden shutters, have been completely overhauled and the solid oak beneath your feet conceals extra sound insulation. On your right is a feature fireplace, and high above your head, energy efficient lights are placed in such a way as to create three “zones”, controlled by a dimmer switch, which as well as providing atmosphere and highlighting the delightful plaster frieze that still wends its way around the room, also allows for the wall behind you to be used as a large screen of about 25 feet for movies!
Along the broad hallway, a private study has natural light through a delightful leaded window as well as a window above the tall door. There are USB charging sockets available here, as well as in the master bedroom and the kitchen, which is a handy feature. Next next door is a luxury bathroom, lined in gleaming grey marble. You can relax in coloured lighting whilst enjoying the whirlpool bath, which has a shower attachment although there is a magnificent separate shower with a rainfall head next to the heated towel rail. The contemporary hand basin with a waterfall tap rests on glossy white storage and the mirror above has lights which are touch activated. The first of the quiet double bedrooms is conveniently next to this room and has its own sink, the high ceiling and graceful sash window making the room feel very restful.
Along the hall, the glamorous kitchen is bright, with gracious curves to the white units and gleaming granite work surfaces, reminiscent of a luxury Liner. The dramatic black floor glints silver in the light of the large window and all of the appliances, including the sleek touch induction hob and Zanussi oven are brand new. There is an extravagant Brita filter tap and the washing machine, which is by the boiler room, will stay.
At the end of the hall you come to a tranquil bedroom with wide reaching views across gardens to the roof tops of Kemp Town and towards the race course, meaning that this room is both bright and private, and steps are in place to the fire escape/balcony for friends. The spacious master bedroom next door, with the same unusually private views, both urban and green, shares the attractive curved wall and has a prettily tiled original fireplace and a wall of wardrobes which contain a carefully thought through system – including a pull out tie rack!
Bear in mind:
This is a very private apartment, with wonderful sea views to the front and rare mix of open urban and green views at the back. Just for interest, the legend has it that the manicured garden beneath the window, belonging to next door, was lost in a card game…
“The sea is magnificent and friends tend to congregate here, not only for beach fests but also as we can walk to all the shops and restaurants”
Where it is:
Shops: St James’s Street 2 minutes, Central Brighton 10 minute walk

This gracious chain free apartment is right on the seafront, but set back from the road.

The lush green spaces of Queens Park are within easy reach and there are regular buses to the mainline station with its excellent links to Gatwick and London.
