Full description

Tenure: Share of Freehold

city parking

Perched up on the hill from the famous Victorian viaduct, sits this beautifully bright, one bedroom patio flat. It is deceptively spacious, with well proportioned rooms, and a kitchen big enough for the keenest of cooks. The patio is tranquil with space to sit out in summer, and the decor is both neutral yet stylish, so you can move straight in with ease. What makes this flat stand out however, is the off road parking, which has provided the car free owners with an income, as parking is at such a premium in the city. It is also the perfect pad for commuters, being just ten minutes from Brighton Station and the fashionable Seven Dials. With so many attractive features, it is sure to be snapped up.

In brief:

Style: Ground floor flat in a Victorian house

Bedrooms: 1 double

Living rooms: 1 with French doors to patio

Area: 489 sq ft

Outside: Rear patio garden

Location: Seven Dials/ Viaduct

Parking: Resident permit zone Q

Why you’ll like it:

The house itself is typical for the period with a cream facade, and two large bow windows, and this flat resides on the ground floor, under the shade of the neighbouring monkey puzzle tree. You approach the front door, passing the off street parking spaces; one for this flat and one for the flat above. Your door is first on the left from the communal hallway, and this opens directly into the living room, and has hooks on the back for your coats and bags. This room is central to the flat, and is a lovely size, with white walls and a timber laminate floor in warm tones which flows through to the kitchen diner for continuity. French doors, adorned with plantation shutters, lead out to the pretty patio garden, which becomes an extension of the room in the warmer months. There are raised beds for planting, and the floor is slate chips, and both are easy to maintain.

The kitchen also opens to the garden, and has a large picture window to frame the view whist providing lots of natural light. Unlike most Victorian one bedroom flats, this kitchen is substantially wider, and has modern white gloss units at both base and wall levels, topped with solid oak in tones to echo the floor. The slimline dishwasher is freestanding and there’s space and plumbing for a washing machine and a tall fridge freezer. 

A small hallway/vestibule separates the kitchen and bathroom, and in this there is a deep storage cupboard as well as useful shelving. The bathroom is contemporary at the rear of the flat, and this is on trend with large, mocha ceramic tiles on the floor and the walls, and there’s a Triton electric shower over the white bath suite. 

The double bedroom is to the very front of the flat, with a beautiful window, again adorned with shutters, which almost covers the southerly wall. You are set back from the road so it feels private, and the double glazing is excellent in ensuring a peaceful nights sleep. The room is carpeted to make it cosy, yet it is spacious enough for a very large wardrobe and a king size bed without compromising the floor space. 

This is a really well presented flat, in a fantastic location for the city and station, so it would suit first time buyers, commuters, or rental investors alike.

Bear in mind:

There is a huge amount of storage for a one bedroom flat, including a bounteous under stairs cupboard, another by the bathroom, and plenty of space in the bedroom for a wall of built in wardrobes should you chose.
