Why you’ll like it:

This charming one bedroom flat is formed from the entire ground floor of a Victorian townhouse just minutes from the city and stations. It has a fresh cream facade, adorned with period architectural features, and you aproach up a short path to the main front door, then through a neat communal hallway where your door is on the right. This opens directly into the living room, and from here you are immediately aware that this is a bright and stylish home. The ceilings are high, and the wide bay sash windows flood the room with light from the west. These are adorned with white plantation shutters in white, which complement the dove grey walls, and these work well with the timber laminate floors which flow from here down the hallway. The original features have been retained, but these have been blended with a contemporary palette throughout the flat, so every room has a fresh and contemporary feel.

The double bedroom is next door, and in here there is ample space for a king size bed, as two generous wardrobes have been built into the alcoves. Another tall sash window frames a view of the pretty rear garden, and the rear feature wall brings some of the ‘outside in’ with a silhouetted flock of birds taking flight behind the headboard.

A short corridor takes you to the rear of the flat, past hooks for hanging coats and bags, and into the kitchen. This has freshly painted walls in soothing lemon mint, and has space for freestanding appliances including a washing machine, tall fridge freezer and a gas cooker. There is some open shelving with hooks for utensils, and a door reveals a larder as part of the under stair space. The bathroom is at the far end and this has a separate WC within it. It is classically decorated in shades of blue, with a white suite, and there’s a shower over the bath. 

The garden is accessed from the kitchen, and is a glorious space for dining al fresco during the warmer months. A new timber deck has been laid, and a raised bed in white render gives a Mediterranean feel. A fantastic store room/shed spans the width of the garden, and while this is currently used to house garden tools and the like, it does have a window and electricity, so it could be made into a home office or summer house with a little interior TLC. 

This is a very attractive flat, in a sought after area of this city, so it is sure to be coveted by many. 

Bear in mind:

If you commute to London from Brighton Station, you can jump on the train at London Road Station and take the 4 minute journey across the viaduct to Brighton where you can make the connection. If you have a valid ticket to London, this is stop is free of charge.
