Property description

GUIDE PRICE: £260,000--£280,000.




Streamlined and stylish, this one-bedroom, split-level patio flat has been beautifully renovated in recent weeks, so you can move straight in with ease. It sits in a hugely sought-after location close to Preston Circus, Preston Park and Brighton Station, so there is plenty to entertain you nearby and the city with all its delights is within easy walking distance. It is formed from the lower ground and rear ground floor of a substantial Victorian townhouse, so inside, the rooms are well-proportioned, and it has sole access to the south facing patio to the front – accessible from the living room. Transport links are also excellent by car with the A23/A27 just minutes away and there are easy train links to the universities too from London Road Station, making this an attractive prospect for professionals, commuters and rental investors alike.

Why you’ll like it:
The terraces of Victorian townhouses are more substantial at the lower end of Ditchling Rise, so they do not feel dwarfed by the glorious viaduct which sweeps by behind them.

A contemporary tiled path sets this house back from the road, making it attractive on the approach, yet this apartment also benefits from its own street entrance down a few stone steps and through the patio garden. From the moment you enter, it is clear this is a stylish renovation with chevron, wood effect flooring in grey running through the living room to the kitchen which is recessed to the rear. While there is ample space in here for formal dining and relaxed seating, a breakfast bar has been created between the two spaces with an urban, concrete effect worktop and space for two to sit on high stools. Fresh white walls complement the space and both spot lights and white column radiators complete the modern look.

Positioned to the rear of the room, the kitchen does not dominate the space and has been well-designed to include an integrated fridge, oven, dishwasher, wine chiller and gas hob, plus there is a cupboard to house a small freezer. Dove-grey cabinetry complements the worktops and the splashbacks are on-trend in textured metro-brick tiling.

To the front of the living space, French doors open to the patio which becomes a welcome extension of the home during the warmer seasons. South facing, it receives plenty of sunshine, yet being lower ground, it also feels private from the street. It is simply designed as a courtyard patio at present with space for a table and chairs, yet it could be decorated further with colourful pots and flowers which will only add to the sense of privacy and will create a lovely backdrop from within the flat.

Returning inside, grey carpeted steps lead up to the upper level, passing a touch-close cupboard housing the new combination boiler and plumbing for a washing machine. A sliding door then reveals the industrial-chic bathroom with its monochrome palette and patterned tile alcoves which are immediately impressive. The fixtures and fittings are matt black against white sanitaryware with glossy chevron wall tiles, and there is a rainfall shower over the bath.

Next door, the bedrooms is a fine size double with space for a king bed and freestanding wardrobes. Being positioned to the rear of the building with a double-glazed window will also ensure a truly warm and restful night’s sleep.

Agent’s thoughts:
This apartment is incredibly stylish and ready to move straight into. As a newly renovated Victorian conversion, finished to the highest standard, you can rest assured it will last for many years to come.
