Why you’ll like it:

Literally two minutes up the hill from Brighton Station stands this gracious double fronted, Victorian house, with a white facade, and planting to the front setting it back from the road. You approach up an original tiled path and into a neat communal hallway where your door is first on the left. This opens into a small vestibule where there is space to hang coats if you choose, and the kitchen is immediately to the left. It is galley in style with glistening granite worktops which are mirrored in the floor tiles. The units are modern in light wood, and into these, the electric oven and hob are integrated while the fridge freezer is freestanding below the counter. A little oval window has been cut into the wall adjoining the bedroom to allow extra natural light to flow in, and the gas combi boiler has been raised high up making use of the generous ceiling height.

The master bedroom is next door, and this is carpeted for extra warmth and comfort. A Deco style fireplace with a wooden surround provides both warmth in the cooler months, and also is useful as a mantle, while there is space within the alcoves for wardrobes and a chest of drawers.

The living room is towards the rear of the property and has gleaming wooden floorboards in honeyed tones, plus the southern wall feels almost entirely glazed as it has a window and a door leading out to the rear garden. This is a sizable space for somewhere so central, and has mature planting in its borders, as well as two shingle seating areas. It is slightly sunken from the road level which makes it feel more private, and a lovely space for summer suppers and soirees. Inside, there is another feature fireplace to echo that of the bedroom, and there is a wealth of original period detailing including panelled doors, deep skirting boards and picture rails.

The bathroom is accessed down a few steps, and this has a contemporary bath with a shower above, and it is wider at one end for extra elbow room! The floor has a slate tile in contrast to the white suite, and a tall heated towel rail completes the polished look.

Being so well presented and located and with private parking, you could move straight in or let it out immediately and with ease. This is a fantastic apartment which is sure to be snapped up.

Bear in mind:

To have private parking space in this area of the city is a real luxury, and one which could potentially provide an income should you chose to be car free yourself.
