Why you’ll like it:

These architectural masterpieces were built in 1824 by famed architect Charles Busby at the time when Brighton had become very fashionable for the top tiers of society, who were suitably impressed by the curved ‘Brunswick Cream’ townhouses with their Ionic and Corinthian columns. Although many of them have since been converted into apartments, they still retain an air of grandeur, and Brunswick is still one of the most prestigious addresses in the city.

This generous apartment has its own entrance, accessed down a few stone steps, where there is a sweet south facing patio area made pretty with colourful pots, and some storage cupboards below the external stairs. Your door opens to a sizable vestibule with a classic chequerboard floor, and ample space for bikes, scooters, shoes and coats, keeping the rest of the flat happily clutter free. A secondary door then opens to a bright and welcoming hallway, where the solid ash floors begin, and flow through to every room in the flat for continuity.

Firstly on the right however is the living room, where the south facing wall is almost entirely glazed with a curved, floor to ceiling window adorned with shutters, and which fills the room with light. There is a Regency style mantle piece in black lacquer for modern twist, and there is ample space in here for larger pieces of furniture as well as a formal dining table and chairs if you chose.

The kitchen and breakfast room is next door and this too gets some natural light from the south through an internal window to the living room. The units are contemporary in subtle duck egg blue, and these are topped with practical wood effect surfaces in a shade darker than the floor. The appliances are all free standing, so there is space and plumbing for both the washing machine and a dishwasher, plus a tall fridge freezer, and a door leads from here to the  first courtyard patio. This has an inspired and intricately painted mural of Brighton seafront to brighten the walls and to add fun and character to the space, and it is a peaceful place for dining alfresco during the warmer months.

The hallway turns slightly here, and the full depth of the apartment suddenly becomes apparent. Seemingly endless, the bedrooms, bathrooms and two bounteous storage cupboards all reside from here on in, with bedroom three being first on the right. This is currently used as an occasional bedroom and study, and the rear wall has a feature wallpaper depicting a colourful cityscape. Bedroom two is next door, and while this is beautifully set up as a dreamy child’s bedroom, with a fixed raised bed, it is the same size double as the master bedroom, and has a built in wardrobe, plus lovely views onto the third and largest internal courtyard patio.

Opposite here is the family bathroom which has been tastefully designed with large ceramic tiles on the walls that feel and look like natural stone, and slate grey on the floor which is heated from below. There is a corner bath with a shower above for a relaxing soak, but taking centre stage is the bespoke, vintage basin stand which has been crafted from a chest of drawers, with the white bowl and tap inlaid.

The master bedroom suite is at the far end of the apartment, so it is wonderfully secluded and tranquil. To the left is a dressing area with a full wall of wardrobes, and from here is the chic en suite shower room, where the same stone tiles have been used, and the shower has glazed double doors plus a rainfall showerhead for added luxury.

This flat has many winning qualities, and has charm and character in abundance. Being so well presented and located, it is sure to be an attractive prospect for those looking for the quintessential Brighton and Hove lifestyle by the sea.

Bear in mind:

All of the windows (excluding the very front for conservation reasons) have been restored and had their panes replaced with double glazing.

Owner’s secret

“From the front gate you're greeted by Hove lawns and the beach, where we love to stroll along the seafront at dusk, enjoying the most stunning sunsets, and a drink or a meal at the many restaurants here. The luxury of our location means we have the relative calm of Hove, yet it’s just a short walk into the Laines and the hustle and bustle of the city centre with all it has to offer.”

Where it is:

Shops: Local 3 min walk, city centre 5 min walk

Train Station: Brighton Station 10 min walk

Seafront or Park: Private gardens and the beach are on the doorstep

Closest Schools:

Primary:  Brunswick Primary, Middle Street

Secondary: Hove Park, Blatchington Mill, Cardinal Newman RC

Private: Brighton College

This generous flat is beautifully situated in a popular area with lots of local shops and the beach on your doorstep. The city centre shopping districts and parks are also within easy reach, and it also offers easy access to Brighton Station which has direct and fast links to the airports and London.
