Full description

In a Grade 1 listed Regency house designed by Busby and Wilds, 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 magnificent private gardens.

Inside the imposing communal entrance, the front door to the apartment is ahead and opens into a welcoming hallway with high ceilings and a honey coloured floor leading off in different directions, giving an immediate impression of space. To your right, a broad door leads through to a charming living room of elegant proportion, currently used as the main bedroom, where the quality of light is quite extraordinary, washing through two gracious sash windows which bring in gentle green views of the leafy enclosures. The windows have retained their original shutters and high above your head, a delicate vine, laden with grapes, wends its way around the room which has been freshly decorated and has soft dove grey carpet.

Next door is an airy, peaceful double bedroom, with a graceful curve to it, emphasised by the wonderful, original plaster work and, devised by talented architects with a penchant for light, there is an unusually tall sash window looking across the central light well.

Along the hallway, which has an attractive curved alcove to your right, is a double, sweeping staircase, echoing the sweeping curves of the exterior of the building and the swell of the sea leading you past discreet storage to a magical room, full of light. Three stately windows reach almost to the ceiling following the curve of the building from east to south, through which views of the sea over the green of the gardens simply pour in – and all just minutes from the centre of the City! Used by the current owner as a spectacular living room, this large space would also be a beautiful private bedroom.

Returning to the top of the stairs, opposite is a stylish contemporary bathroom completing the gentle curve of the first double bedroom, which is decorated in soothing natural colours and has a shower above the bath. At the end of the hallway, traditionally placed to the cooler North within the apartment but with large windows ensuring that there is ample light, is a streamlined kitchen, thoughtfully designed with white gloss units and contrasting dark work surfaces effortlessly bringing in a feel of city chic as well as depth to the space with the spot lights, up lights and under wall lights. All of the appliances, including a smart touch induction hob, electric oven, dishwasher, washing machine and fridge and freezer are integrated, so all that you need to add is fresh food and good company! 

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.
