Why you’ll like it:

On a quiet side street at the centre of the chic North Laines shopping district, this attractive white house opposite the striking Argus Building has curved windows and an arched fan light above the front door, which is also the private entrance to this maisonette which is the main portion of the building. Inside, an open lobby leads through into a simple but stylish living room where a big bay window has a deep sill and reaches almost the whole length of the wall, so you can imagine how bright this space is. Floating shelves on each side of the chimney breast keep the space feeling open and you could put an ornamental or contemporary electric fireplace between them if you wanted. Storage is definitely not an issue in this home as there is both a cupboard beneath the stairs and two more in the hall which takes you into the airy kitchen/diner. 

Full of morning sunshine, there is plenty of space to play with in this L shaped room where the kitchen is discreetly tucked away in its own space, so that although the chef can be sociable, the working area doesn’t dominate the space. The gas hob and electric oven are integrated into a steel topped unit opposite a mix of glass and metal supporting a practical work surface which houses the sink and conceals the plumbing for a washing machine. Wood and steel shelves add both extra space and contribute to the contemporary vibe initiated by the painted floorboards and sleek spotlights above your head.

Upstairs, the central landing has access to the attic space and ahead, the first of the double bedrooms spans the back of the house. The broad triple window – which is double glazed-  brings in plenty of light but the room remains remarkably private as the building behind has only sky lights angled so they do not really overlook this room. Ready to move into, built in storage is also already in place for you. At the front of the house, the second double room looks over the characterful street and the majestic architecture of what used to be newspaper offices, and currently used as a double study, there is plenty of shelving. Conveniently between the two, the modern bathroom has chic storage beneath the hand basin, a heated rail for your towels and the splendid skylight means that you can bathe, or shower, beneath the stars.

Bear in mind:

Homes on this street do not appear on the market very often.

Owner’s secret:

“We always have plenty to do and see here, and love our private home on this friendly street”

Where it is:

Shops: North Laines 2 minutes

Train Station: Brighton Mainline 10 minute walk

Seafront or Park: Seafront is about 5 minutes as is Victoria Gardens

Closest Schools:

Primary: Carlton Hill, St Pauls C of E 

Secondary: Varndean or Dorothy Stringer

Private: Brighton College

This spacious maisonette should appeal to those of you searching for a permanent or weekend home, or for a rental property as it is at the centre of the Laines with its innumerable cafes, bars and restaurants. Brighton’s theatres, cinemas, clubs and seafront are all within easy reach and its central location is also exceptionally convenient for access to Brighton’s mainline station with its fast links to Gatwick and London.
