Why you’ll like it:
Built in the mid 19th Century, this substantial detached villa has beautiful architectural detailing, and has the prime, corner position in the street so that the sea can be viewed from the generously wide, canted bay windows. The approach is grand, with a cast iron lamp and overthrow above the entrance, and then stone steps lead you to the portico, and the original, panelled front door. The communal areas are neat, and stairs take you to the first floor where your door with glazed surround is directly ahead.
Once inside, you are welcomed into a gracious entrance hall from which all the rooms reside, and it is immediately apparent that this is a light and spacious home. Floors and white walls flow throughout for continuity, and within a recessed area to the right, a wall of blue glass bricks filter through the natural light from the south. There are hooks here for your coats, and space to organise shoes; keeping them out of the way, and the apartment clutter free.
The living room is directly ahead, and would have been the main reception of the house when it was originally built as it is the perfect space for sophisticated entertaining. The east and south walls feel almost entirely glazed so the light floods in, and the bays provide the perfect spots to sit and read, or for formal dining in front of sea views. An open fire with a limestone mantle warms you in the cooler months, and while there is ample space for big comfortable sofas in here, the room follows round on the south side to a snug which has French windows opening up to the balcony with the original Renaissance balusters.
The master bedroom is next door, and is equally grand, with space for a super king size bed, and freestanding furniture without compromising on floor space. There is also a wall of built in wardrobes in cream, and you can glimpse the sea from the easterly square bay window.
Moving towards the rear of the flat, you come to the kitchen which is on trend with white gloss units and grey brick tiled splashbacks. The appliances are all freestanding, and there’s plenty of workspace for even the keenest cook.
The contemporary bathroom is next, and this is another stylish and modern room, with a sleek angular vanity unit below the basin and a spacious separate shower. There’s also a double ended bath for added comfort, and the walls are tiled in natural stone, with an irridescent mosaic border for interest.
There are two further double bedrooms, both with original features, and plantation shutters, and with more than enough space to suit either professional sharers or a family. This is a truly remarkable apartment which cannot fail to impress, so it needs to be seen to be admired.
Bear in mind:
There is a short waiting list for this parking zone, but there are some reasonable pay and display bays in the surrounding streets while you wait for a permit, plus excellent transport links nearby should you chose to be car free.
“This flat is fantastic for entertaining as there's so much space, but the location is great too; the beach is on the doorstep and there are so many vibrant bars and restaurants on Church Road that I rarely venture into central Brighton”
