Why you’ll like it:
This bright and cheerful apartment is on the ground floor of an appealing Victorian house, constructed in the 1880s; is on a popular street quietly located close to the London Road and North Laine Shopping District, and the newly revamped Level.
Reached up a few steps, the smart front door opens into a well -cared for communal hallway where the entrance to the apartment is on your left. Inside high ceilings and chocolate coloured flooring welcome you in and the elegant living room is to the left. A generously wide bay window stretches almost from floor to ceiling and, uniquely placed in the terrace, floods the room with light as opposite are not houses, but instead there is a wide road set at 90 degrees to the apartment – which also makes this spacious room unusually private. There is clever shelving in natural wood to your right, soothing dove grey walls in a Farrow and Ball palette, and high above your head, an original frieze of flowers has been carefully preserved.
The kitchen is ingeniously hidden behind a stud wall, which does not reach the ceiling to ensure natural light; and which the current owner did consider turning into a breakfast bar. Behind it there are plenty of contemporary white units with glamorous contrasting work surfaces in a practical L shape. The gas hob and electric oven are sensibly placed on the right, and next to the fashionable circular sink is space for a tall fridge freezer.
The master bedroom with the lofty proportions so typical of the Victorian era looks over a garden at the rear, and, stepping down two stairs past a large storage cupboard, the modern bathroom has a fabulous corner bath with a seat and a shower attachment. The space has a sea side feel as the floor is oak and there is white wooden panelling around the bath and beneath the hand basin, which also creates extra storage.
At the back is the light and airy study space. This also houses the washing machine with Worcester combi boiler above, but these could easily be boxed in to incorporate a desk if so desired.
Bear in mind:
This apartment is ready to move into but there are opportunities to put your own stamp onto it and add value in the future.
