Why you’ll like it:


In a Grade 1 listed Regency house on the west side of the prestigious Lewes Crescent, the impressive front door to this curved mansion, one of only two in the Regency design, is beneath a portico with Doric columns to each side opposite the acres of private gardens to which you have access. Inside does not disappoint with a cared for communal hall with period features and the broad staircase sweeps you up past a concave doorway concealing a storage cupboard to the door of this apartment on the left. 


Sunlight and views of the beautiful gardens stream into the hallway through floor to ceiling French doors ahead, reflected in the vast mirrored door to your left and this area is large enough to be used as a peaceful study. To your right an arch leads through to a living room of generous yet elegant proportions, dominated by the sea which simply pours in through three graceful sets of doors reaching right up to the ceiling and which each open onto the delicately wrought balcony running along the south curve of this magnificent building. The original shutters have been carefully retained and an intricate frieze still flows around the room, the design of which is echoed in the carvings on the handsome marble fireplace.


Next door, the bright kitchen has a glass hatch into the living room, so the cook can be sociable as well as enjoy the wonderful views. There are plenty of white units providing ample work surfaces and the touch induction hob and electric grill and oven are already integrated for you. There is space for a tall fridge freezer, although this is one area of the apartment which you may want to put your own stamp onto as to your left, double doors with glass panels open to reveal a fabulous belvedere big enough to dine in with mesmerizing views across the landscaped grounds to the English Channel. 


This apartment just keeps on giving with a romantic master bedroom on the east side opening onto a balcony where you can sit together watching the lights of the boats as they return to safe harbour. There are large mirrored wardrobes already fitted for you.


The triple width mirrored door in the hall takes you through to the second double bedroom where soft light filters through the huge sash window and there is loft space overhead. Returning to the hall, a few steps lead to a separate w.c. and hand basin, very useful in a shared home and at the end is a light and airy bathroom with a shower above the bath and plenty of storage cupboards, one of which conceals plumbing for a washing machine.


Bear in mind:


Apartments in these unique curved mansions –twice the width of the other impressive houses in the terrace and with the advantage of following the sun along the front, do not appear on the market very often.
