Why you’ll like it:
Brighton is famous for its seafront, its beautiful Regency buildings and elegant garden squares, and this first floor apartment ticks all three boxes! Built in the 1870’s, this terraced, bay fronted house faces a one way garden square and has sea views in the living rooms and from the first floor balcony. Delicate shell plaster work remains above the front door, now secured by an answer phone system and which opens into a clean and tidy hall with the door to the apartment to the right on the first floor.
Inside is a practical lobby with the answer phone so you can buzz people up instead of running up and down all the time and the current owner has coat hooks on the back of the door, which works. Ahead, the bright and spacious living room is dominated by views over the garden square which stream in with the morning sun through the broad bay window and as you approach the central doors to step out onto the wrought iron balcony with friends, you can enjoy the ribbon of beach and the rolling waves of the English Channel which also come into view. There is plenty of floor space for relaxing or entertaining and there are alcoves for shelving on each side of a chimney breast wide enough for a feature fireplace and even a big flat screen t.v. The door to your left leads into the contemporary kitchen which is galley in style, although there is room along the wall where the shelves are for a slim line breakfast bar, or if you had an under counter fridge, which there is a space for, you could put a bistro table and chairs under the window so you can watch the sea. There are enough oak coloured units and drawers with practical and stylish dark work surfaces- and don’t forget that you are surrounded by a myriad of cafes, restaurants and specialist shops here- and there is also some plumbing in place for a washing machine.
Central to the apartment, so good for guests, the modern bathroom has a white suite, an extractor and a shower above the bath. Next door at the back of the building, the quiet double bedroom has restful proportions with a high ceiling and a great big window, making this comfortable space nice and airy too.
Bear in mind:
Balcony apartments in this centrally located garden square by the sea are quite rare.
“In summer, we stroll along the Laines from the station, choose a restaurant and then end up chatting quietly on the balcony watching the moon on the waves. It makes most evenings feel like a date!”
Where it is:
Shops: St James’ Street 1 minute
Station: Brighton 10 minutes by bus, 20 to walk
Seafront or park: Seafront 1 minute, garden square opposite
Primary: Queen’s Park

In a relatively quiet square in the heart of Kemp Town’s shopping district with its innumerable cafes, bars and restaurants, both the beach and New Steine Gardens are just moments away. Within walking distance of The Lanes and theatres as well as clubs and bars, the proximity to Brighton station with its excellent links to Gatwick and London make this bright apartment eminently liveable/lettable for or to those requiring frequent and fast links to Gatwick and London.
