Why you’ll like it:
This subtly painted Victorian house is in a popular conservation area between the seafront and the County Hospital and has big bay windows, smart black railings and chequered steps rising to a glossy front door. Inside is a practical lobby where an inner door with hand painted glass has welcomed visitors since the house was built in the late 1800’s for a retired surgeon. Beyond is a spacious hallway with solid white American oak beneath your feet and refreshingly high ceilings where delicate hand- made plaster details have been carefully preserved over generations. Being end of terrace, this house is lighter than most thanks to the big windows in three, rather than two walls, and the extra light also adds to the feeling of space.
On the right is an elegant reception room, which would have been two rooms originally, but they are now joined together to create a light and airy room with a gracious bay window looking up a tree lined street and a handsome grey marble fireplace, which is open. Floral friezes wend their way above your head and the large south facing window at the far end of the room still holds original stained glass panels, the 21st Century being acknowledged in the stylish Nina Campbell wall paper.
Along the hallway, past under stair storage, is a bright and stylish kitchen with a broad bay window making up most of the east wall where there is space for an armchair or bistro table. There are plenty of gleaming white units with fashionable grey work surfaces and the steel Zanussi gas hob has twin wine coolers below. The microwave and double ovens are thoughtfully placed at eye level and the washing machine and dishwasher are both integrated and you can change the mood by just using the down lights, which makes the opaque glass splash back glow.
Upstairs the door has a knob made to match the unusual Lincrust paper and opens into a contemporary bathroom with a double ended bath with a shower above it, a sleek hand basin resting on storage and a sculptural heated towel rail. The private w.c. is next door in a room which conjures up images of the cheerful huts along the beach.
The first floor has a long and deep hallway and the first of the gracious double bedrooms is on your left. This peaceful room has designer paper and a large window looking across the garden. A surprise is a weighted ladder which slides smoothly from the wall allowing you to access the amazing roof terrace (also reached from upstairs) with plenty of room to relax and entertain and from which you can admire the roof tops of Kemp Town and the sparkling sea. A second, dignified bedroom is at the front of the house with a generous bay bringing in views of a leafy street set at 900 to it which leads to the grand façade of the County Hospital and there is a whole wall of wardrobes already in place for you. At the end of the hallway a door with pyrotex glass leads to a private staircase to the airy third bedroom, currently used as an office and which also has access to the splendid roof terrace via a glamorous staircase with bannisters which light up to bathe the terrace in a rosy tint and guide your way down at night.
The garden apartment has its own entrance through a sweet garden with a tessellated tiled floor where a conservatory probably once stood, and has a spacious living room with an original fireplace, and big double bedroom and a modern kitchen and shower room.
Bear in mind:
Registered as one freehold property at the Land Registry, we understand that the apartment has separate utilities and is registered for separate council tax.
