Tenure: Freehold

A rare opportunity to acquire this stunning four storey house on Montpellier Crescent. The main section of the Crescent was built between 1843 and 1847 with additional houses being added at the higher and lower ends in the 1850's. 'The Montpellier' area was and still is an exclusive and salubrious area of Brighton with Montpellier Crescent being its great showpiece.
The Crescent was designed by prominent and local architect Amon Henry Wilds, who also built similar style properties in Brighton including Park Crescent and Hanover Crescent.
The properties current design allows for the main three storey house to be utilised as a family home while the lower ground floor section functions as a totally self-contained one bedroom patio flat. Due to this versatility you could potentially generate an income from the flat of in the region of 1,700 per calendar month.
The main house briefly comprises;
Beautiful entrance hall with solid wood flooring, four large double bedrooms (one with sumptuous en-suite), well-appointed family bathroom with separate shower, ground floor cloakroom/WC, West facing lounge, large bespoke fitted kitchen dining room and a good size patio.
The lower ground floor has its own separate street entrance leading to a spacious hallway, west facing lounge, large double bedroom, bathroom, kitchen and a patio.

The house is only a short walk to Brighton mainline station, the Royal Pavilion and of course the waterfront are only a little further away.
