Why you’ll like it:


In a prime location within a short walk of Brighton station, fashionable shops and the beach, this spacious apartment has access to all that this vibrant coastal city has to offer and is also well placed for those who need to commute by car. Being in such a convenient location does mean that the road outside is busy but the terrace is set well back behind an attractive front garden and the road quietens at night.


Inside, the communal hallway is clearly cared for and there are useful bike racks on the wall. The front door to this apartment is to the left of the sweeping staircase by a cupboard for vacuums etc which is for your sole use. Inside is a bright hallway with practical flooring and a door to your left, soaring almost right up to the ceiling, opens into a light filled living room where delicate vines wend their way around the generously proportioned space high above your head and a hand- made central rose completes a decorative ceiling. Ahead, sunshine streams through two graceful windows which follow the bay of the building from the south to the west. This beautiful room has plenty of space for relaxing or for entertaining and to the right is a handsome, black stone fireplace which, most unusually, is still open for real firelight for more romantic evenings. Behind you, the contemporary kitchen is small but perfectly formed and has a classic combination of white, reflective units and black work surfaces which flash silver. Both the electric hob and oven are integrated beneath a steel extractor and plumbing is in place for a machine. There is also room for a tall fridge freezer, although don’t forget that you have the chic restaurants and cafes of both the Dials and Western Road to explore!


Next door, quietly looking over the garden, the guest bedroom has the restful dimensions associated with the Age of Empire and there are tall fitted wardrobes to the side of the magnificent sash window which doesn’t need curtains as you are not overlooked. Across the hallway the luxury bathroom gleams with polished black granite. The white suite is contemporary with a shaped bath which has a shower above it and the hand basins rest on chic storage close to the rail which will warm your towels. At the end of the hallway, the spacious master bedroom is privately tucked away, and is a light and airy room full of the views and scents of the garden, reached through the door in the far wall. You step down into a wonderfully peaceful oasis with a pebbled area reminding you that the beach is at the bottom of the hill where a wooden shed has power and beyond it is a private seating area, ideal for al fresco dining or just relaxing, facing west for the afternoon sun.


Bear in mind:


In this central city location the road outside is inevitably busy but it is not a central artery into Brighton and the building is set well back so that you are not really aware of traffic once inside. The huge plus is that you can walk to the station, the beach and fashionable shops and restaurants. In any event, the building is not listed so you could easily install secondary glazing.


Owner’s secret:


“Friends like to gather here as we can all walk down from the station after work on Friday and then sit inside or out whilst we choose where to go, as we can get to everywhere on foot from here!”


Where it is:


Shops: Western Road 10 minute walk, 7 Dials 1 minute


Train Station: Brighton 9 minute walk


Seafront or Park: Seafront 15 minute walk, St Nicholas Rest Garden 8 minutes


Closest Schools:


Primary: St Paul’s C of E


Secondary: Cardinal Newman


Private: Brighton College, Brighton and Hove High


By the chic 7 Dials and within minutes of the seafront and the fashionable Western Road, this spacious home offers easy access to all that this vibrant coastal city has to offer. Conveniently located for parks, theatres and clubs, its proximity to Brighton Station with its excellent links to Gatwick and London and the quick route to the A23 and A27 make this a viable possibility for those who need to commute, and increases the potential for an income.
