Newly renovated and located in a hugely popular area for commuters and professionals alike, this two double bedroom garden flat is the ideal investment for first time buyers and buy-to-let investors. It has its own street entrance on the ground floor of a substantial Victorian villa, and has the generous proportions and wide bay sash windows of the period, while enjoying a contemporary finish inside. It also has sole access to a south-west facing patio garden which has plenty of scope for landscaping.

The transport links both in and out of the city are excellent, and with several popular local shops and parks, this apartment is sure to attract the attention of many.

Why you’ll like it
Springfield Road sweeps up from Brighton’s historic viaduct to meet Ditching Road, forming part of an attractive set of tree-lined avenues within easy walking distance of Brighton Station and the North Laine. The property is just a two-minute walk to London Road station. Formed within the ground floor of a Victorian house which holds a corner plot, it benefits from its own street entrance set back from the road behind a gated garden area. This patio garden faces both south and west meaning it is a real suntrap during the summer. Stepping inside, it is immediately clear this apartment has been renovated to a high standard with new wooden floors flowing throughout and freshly painted walls in white to suit all styles of modern furnishings.

It is a contemporary space, yet certain features have been retained, such as the timber framed sash windows, which can be found in both the living room and main bedroom. Facing south, the living room is filled with natural light, yet it is set well back from the road ensuring there is privacy from within. There is ample space for relaxed seating and a formal dining table and chairs, plus an open hatch to the kitchen allows for conversation between the rooms. During the cooler seasons, a fitted wood burning stove is a lovely focal point, adding both heat and atmosphere to wintery suppers.

Newly fitted, the kitchen has streamlined, handle-free units in white gloss which provide a huge amount of storage, and the integrated appliances include a new dishwasher, fan oven and induction hob. There is also a washing machine and fridge freezer. The main bedroom shares the same generous proportions as the living room; west-facing, it receives a warm light during the afternoon. Again, border walls and the garden set the room back from the road, so it is private. Easily accessible nearby, the good-sized, fully-tiled bathroom is fresh in white with a shower over the bath.

The smaller second double bedroom benefits from a fitted wardrobe.

Agent’s thoughts: Beautifully presented and spacious, this apartment is ready to move straight into and is brilliantly located within the city.

Owner’s secret: This is such a great location with a real sense of community. For commuters, the mainline station is around a 10-minute walk; the local shops are excellent and for entertainment there are so many friendly pubs nearby, I rarely venture further into the city!’

Where it is
Shops: Local 2 min walk, North Laines 10 min walk
Station: London Road 1 min walk; Brighton Station 9 min walk
Seafront and Park: Preston Park 5 min walk; Blakers Park 5 min walk; Seafront 15-20 min walk Closest Schools: Primary: Downs Infant and Junior Schools; Balfour Junior School
Secondary: Varndean and Dorothy Stringer
Private: Brighton College

This is a lovely apartment in a popular location well served with shops, parks and schools. There are plenty of local green spaces, and great transport links, but you are also only a short walk from everything this vibrant coastal city has to offer. The A23/A27 and stations are also within easy reach, for those requiring fast links to the universities, Gatwick or London on a daily or weekly basis
