Full description

Tenure: Leasehold

Bay fronted | With the Sea at one end of the street and the fashionable Church Road at the other, this newly refurbished one bedroom apartment within a Victorian mansion is ideal for glamorous city dwellers. With a large communal garden, this spacious home on a prestigious Avenue in Hove is also within walking distance of the station, so will also be attractive if you are looking for an investment.

In brief:

Style: Second floor apartment in a detached Victorian mansion constructed in 1870’s

Bedrooms: 1 double

Living rooms: 1 spacious

Area: 506 sq ft; 47 sq m

Outside: Spacious communal gardens

Parking: Residents permit zone M 

On a leafy Avenue in central Hove and just moments from the shops and the beach is an outstanding example of Victorian craftsmanship, rising an imposing 5 storeys with a double bay front and a grand front entrance featuring a front door set within a beautifully detailed arch, complete with intricately carved stone and granite pillasters. Inside does not disappoint with impressive mahogany, leaded doors sweeping into a wide bright hallway, giving a real sense of the grandeur of the house that was, with the door to the big, now communal, garden straight ahead and a delicious example of a carved Victorian staircase to the right, which delivers you in a wide curve to the second floor, where the door to this apartment is on your right.

The door opens into a square hallway with a high ceiling and which is freshly painted with new, timeless hessian flooring, which continues into the capacious living space ahead. This glorious room is filled with light pouring through the west facing bay window which stretches over 3.7 metres across the front of this enormous room with stately wide sills on which to rest and enjoy not only the views down this gracious Avenue to the sparkling sea front, but also the quality of the delicate brickwork of this rather special building.

The kitchen, which is brand spanking new runs along the right hand wall, painted white with classic solid wood work surfaces. The new appliances which are integrated already include an electric hob, oven and extractor as well as the fridge and freezer, and the integrated doors are waiting to be fitted to the dishwasher and washing machine of your choice – all the plumbing is in place.

A door with etched glass opens from the living space into the peaceful double bedroom of restful proportions with a generous sash window at the side of the building.

The discreet bathroom is nicely positioned in the entrance lobby to the apartment, with fashionably grey non slip flooring and a new suite in a traditional style, including the shower above the bath, and there is plenty of storage as well as a luxurious heated towel rail tucked behind the door.

Bear in mind: Glamorously refurbished apartments of this size and with outside space do not come onto the market in this prestigious location very often. 

Owners secret:

“A bright, sunny, city apartment with contemporary finishes mixed with Victorian heritage and added bonus of a sea view from the bay window. Located just one minute from the seafront and Hove Lawns with lots of fun events taking place throughout the year. Numerous buzzy cafes, restaurants and bars nearby complete the picture. You will love it, just as I have.”

Where it is:

Shops: Church Road a 2 minute stroll

Train Station: Brighton mainline and Hove both about 20 minutes’ walk

Seafront or Park: Beach is at the end of the street, Brunswick garden square a 2 minute walk

Closest Schools:

Rarely available on an exclusive Avenue in Central Hove, this spacious apartment has easy access to the beach. Only moments from Church Road with its fashionable shops, bars and restaurants, the famous Lanes and theatres are also nearby. Close to both Brighton and Hove train stations, with their excellent links to Gatwick and London, this chic home is a realistic possibility for those who need to travel further afield.
