Why you’ll like it:
This flamboyant red brick Renaissance style building has terracotta facings with shell details and an impressive, arched entrance. The central hallway inside is magnificent with high vaulted ceilings, marble terrazzo flooring, stained glass windows, tiled walls and sweeping staircases and this contemporary apartment is found in a sheltered position in the south wing. The sleek, clean lines of this striking home are in deliberate contrast to the abundance of decoration throughout the College and begins with the dramatic black flooring in the welcoming hallway with large cupboards by the door for coats and bags.
To your right, the sophisticated living room has an unusually high ceiling, so it feels very airy and there is enough space for relaxing or entertaining. The south wall is almost all glass, so it is nice and light with a door at the south end leading to a petite courtyard which has a raised flower bed along one side. Inside, the streamlined black and white kitchen lies along part of the left hand wall with the electric hob, oven and extractor already integrated for you and there is plumbing for a washing machine also already in place.
Across the hallway, the luxury bathroom is fashionably decorated in shades of grey and has a shower above the bath, a contemporary hand basin resting on a chic cabinet and a sumptuous heated rail.
At the end of the apartment, the spacious double bedroom has a window set high in the wall, so it is very private and on the right, a whole wall of mirrored wardrobes conceal plenty of ingenious storage.
Bear in mind:
This beautiful building is on a busy road into Brighton, but this double glazed apartment is quietly tucked away in the south wing. The building itself is very secure with an electronic entry system to both the main entrance and the bike store and there is a concierge.
The owner’s secret:
We are at the station or in a restaurant in minutes and in the summer meet after work on the level or the beach for a picnic.
Where it is:
Shops: North Laine 10 mins, City Centre a 15 minute walk
Train Station: Brighton mainline 10 minute walk
Seafront or park: Park is opposite, the beach is under a 10 minute walk
Primary: St Bartholomew’s C of E
Secondary: Varndean and Dorothy Stringer
Private: Brighton College
This sophisticated apartment is right at the heart of the city of Brighton and Hove, but looks over the green space of The Level which has undergone a multi- million pound development which includes a new exhibition centre and café. The North Laines, with its unique mix of boutiques, cafes, bars and restaurants is only minutes away, and the beach, theatres and the fashionable Western Road shopping district are walkable. For those needing to reach further afield, Brighton Station is within a fifteen minute walk and has excellent links to Gatwick and London and its proximity to the A23 and A27 is also attractive for commuters.
