commuter dream | This bright and central one bedroom flat sits atop an attractive double fronted house, which is already in an elevated position up on the hill behind Brighton Station. Being in the loft space affords this apartment stunning views across the city to rolling hills of the South Downs. The flat is well presented with well-proportioned rooms decorated in soothing neutral tones, and the kitchen and bathroom both have contemporary touches. You are literally a stone’s throw from Brighton Station, so this is the perfect flat for commuters, and with Seven Dials and the city shops and beach so close by means this is going to be an attractive prospect for many.



In brief:


Style: Top floor flat in a Victorian house


Bedrooms: 1 double


Living rooms: 1 spacious


Location: Brighton Station


Parking: Resident permit zone Y


Why you’ll like it:


The Victorian house in which this flat resides has an impressive symmetrical facade with square bay windows and gables, and you approach it up some central steps and through the original panelled front door where a turning staircase takes you up to the top floor. You are welcomed into an entrance hall where there are hooks for coats and warm wooden floors flow from here into the kitchen on the left. Firstly on the right however is the bright and airy living room which has buttermilk walls and a pale latte carpet, and a cast iron fireplace and mantle sits centrally as a reminder of the period of the house. There are deep alcoves for book shelves, and there’s ample space for separate seating and dining areas. This room is lovely and light due to a south facing window which looks out to the houses and trees opposite, and down to the station showing you just how easy the commute would be if you need it.


The kitchen is across the hall, and this has white units topped with solid wood worktops  to match the wooden panelled wall, and the gas hob and electric oven are integrated. The splashbacks are tiled in a lovely cornflower grey, and there’s space for a freestanding fridge freezer and washing machine.


The bathroom is next door, and this is stylishly tiled in natural stone, and has a white bowl hand basin inlaid to a wooden stand. The wood is echoed in the bath panel, and there’s a shower over the bath. The laundry cupboard is in here too, and also houses the boiler, all neatly hidden behind a white slatted door.


The bedroom is at the far end of the hall, and is a generous double, and it is from here that you get the fantastic panoramic views inland over parks, church spires, roof and treetops, all the way to the countryside. You could stare at it for hours, as the sky and landscapes change through the seasons.


Being so well presented and located, you could move straight in or let it out immediately and with ease. This is a fantastic apartment which is sure to be snapped up.


Bear in mind:


The building does not have a lift, but the views are well worth the climb.
