Why you’ll like it:
Brunswick Town has long been heralded as one of the property hotspots in the city. The iconic cream facades of the Regency townhouses command an air of grandeur which has not been lost since their inception; early in the 19th Century. With this in mind, this spacious apartment in need of complete renovation is a real gem which needs bringing back to its former Regency glory.
Attractive on the approach, you pass a glorious front garden surrounded by glossy black railings and steps leading up to the main door. The communal ways are well maintained and from the moment you enter, the scale and beauty of this old building becomes apparent. Taking the stairs to the top floor, your door is clearly numbered.
Stepping inside, the need for refurbishment is clear, but so it the space and light available in the property. Your eye is immediately drawn into the living room where the easterly wall follows the natural curve of the building and has three beautiful sash windows looking out to the romantic architecture opposite and down to the sea as you glance to the south. This bow offers the perfect space for a dining table and chairs while there is ample space elsewhere for comfortable furnishings. The ceiling is high, and the generous proportions offer plenty of opportunity for reconfiguration.
Conveniently, the kitchen sits off the living room with some fitted units and space for freestanding appliances. It is in need of modernising, but again, some clever design and creativity would add value in here.
The bedroom sits to the rear and mirrors the living room in size and shape. The view looks out to the urban landscape, looking out over the rooftops and chimneys of the city as the sun sets in the west behind them. Much like the kitchen, the bathroom is in working order but requires complete redecoration and modernisation but has space for a full bath and potentially a separate shower.
If the kitchen was relocated to the living room in an open plan style, it would be possible to create a second bedroom where the kitchen and bathroom currently stand, while relocating a new bathroom utilising some of the master bedroom without compromising on the size of the room.
It is not often that a property with such potential arrives on the market in this location – so it is sure to be snapped up.
“The property was a happy home for many years. It is such a wonderful area to live in in with such a vibrant energy. Whoever buys this property will breathe new life into it and will hopefully enjoy it for many years to come.”
