Why you’ll like it:
Lewes Crescent with its Grade I listed mansions designed by Busby and Wilds to embrace the garden enclosures and framed by the sea continues to be one of Brighton’s most sought after addresses. The entrance to this impressive building looks west across the landscaped grounds and has a pillared porch and a front door secured by an answer phone service. A second, secure door leads to a quiet communal hall with period details and this apartment on the second floor is brighter than most as it has windows in three external walls and is also quieter as there is no one above you.
A quirky hallway with refreshingly practical flooring and a ceiling really high above your head invites you in and the apartment is thoughtfully arranged to make the most of the balcony and views at the back. To your right, a luxury bathroom with gleaming stone by the shower above the bath, a heated towel rail and a window is well placed both for guests and for the two peaceful bedrooms which are on each side of the hall and which, unusually, both have large windows to light wells. Each room has interesting angles with the master measuring 3.5m x 2.8m and the second bedroom, currently used as a study, has built in storage and opens to a fire escape platform so it is nice and airy.
Along the hall, the spacious living room spans the full width of this part of the building and is full of morning sunshine streaming through twin pairs of French doors which bring in stunning coastal views and open to an elegant balcony from which to enjoy them. Inside is large enough for both relaxing and entertaining, a feature fireplace is in the corner and the kitchen is discreetly separated from the living space behind a peninsular island which has a glittering splash back. There is a chic mix of glass and grey units providing plenty of counter space and the electric hob and oven are integrated for you beneath a steel extractor. Plumbing is already in place for a machine and there is space for wine above the integrated fridge and freezer- so all you need to do is choose your level of lighting, open the room to the magnificent sea views and start the party.
