Why you’ll like it


No corners have been cut in the creation of this outstanding, contemporary apartment, residing within a substantial Victorian villa. The house was built during the 1890s as Brighton expanded to join Hove, and the architects of the time were building large, solid houses, with generous room proportions and wide bay windows to create bright and welcoming family homes. Many have since been divided into luxurious apartments, and this one has been brought beautifully into the 21st century. The exterior has retained its period character with a red brick and tile facade, timber detailing on the gable, and the original tiled path leads you to the grand front door. Your door is the only one on this floor, in a neat communal hallway, and it opens into a hallway from which the other rooms reside.


It is immediately apparent that this is a stand-out property with buttermilk walls, crisp white woodwork, and stylish timber effect flooring flows from here, and through to the reception room and kitchen/diner which spans the rear of the building. This room forms a large L shape, so you can easily define areas for comfortable seating, dining and for work. Bi-folding doors open up to the slate patio, so during the summer months the garden really becomes an extensions of the space, and would be perfect for entertaining. The kitchen gleams with seamless white units including a central island into which all appliances are integrated, including a washing machine, fridge freezer, electric hob and oven, and a dishwasher. The whole room is lit from above by spots as well as cove recessed lighting which can be dimmed to create added atmosphere.


The apartment is double fronted, so the main bedrooms and bathrooms face the front of the property to the east. All bedrooms have plush dove grey carpets and walls a shade lighter, but two larger rooms have delightful bay, sash windows to flood the room with light.  There is ample space for freestanding pieces of furniture, as well as a king size bed, and the master bedroom has a stylish en suite bathroom with a double walk in shower, and urban concrete style tiling on the floor and walls. The family bathroom is in the same decor, but it also benefits from a statement, modern bathtub, which is freestanding and has a shower attachment. A separate WC for guests is opposite, and this space also houses the new combination boiler; neatly tucked away to complete the polished finish.


The garden is sizable enough for summer soirees, as well as family play time, or for children’s play equipment, and there’s a sweet garden shed to house your gardening tools and furniture too.


This is an outstanding home which has been beautifully renovated, so you could move straight in with ease.


Bear in Mind:


Aldrington Station is the closest being only 5 minutes away on foot, and this gets you into Brighton in 7 minutes to change for London if you commute. Alternatively, you can drive to Gatwick in 30 minutes door to door, and get the Express into the city - a preferred commute for many locally.


Owner’s secret


“This apartment has been a joy to renovate and we feel that the original grandeur of the building has been restored, but with modern living in mind. The location is also perfect for social occasions with the beach and the city so easily accessible.”


Where it is


Shops: Local 5 min walk, city centre 10 min bus ride

Closest Schools:

This is a wonderfully sunny apartment in a popular location which is well served for shops, the beach, parks and schools. There are plenty of local green spaces, and great transport links, but you are also only a short walk from everything this vibrant coastal city has to offer. The A23, Aldrington and Hove Stations are also within easy reach, for those requiring fast links to Gatwick or London on a daily or weekly basis.
