Brief History and Design Concept

The grand, late Georgian/early Victorian houses at this Adelaide Crescent property were knocked through sometime in the 1920s/1930s, creating apartments at every floor, the top of which became the current flat. Believed to have been the two housekeepers flats in the original buildings, by the time the current owners bought the apartment in 2016, what few period features there had been were long gone, all apart from one crucial detail from the 1930s renovation - a curved Art Deco arch connecting the two wings.

It was this Art Deco arch detail that the owners’ architect used to inspire the consistent design theme now applied throughout the entire home, the master bedroom design inspired by the Great Ocean Liners of the ‘20’s and ‘30’s.

The refurbishment has been carried out with quality materials and fabrications and the attention to detail is sublime. The architect and the bespoke cabinet makers were both finalists in the 2018 Sussex Heritage Trust Awards.

Inside the apartment the relevance of contemporary living and all that includes, meets period charm. The home enjoys a comprehensive network of desirable technology including broadband Ethernet and TV points in all rooms that require it together with Wi-Fi boosters dispersed around the property. Electric blinds in most rooms are controlled both from wall panels and app. The exclusive home automation system, controls the blinds and lighting ‘moods’, all tech can be controlled from the owners’ phones. Security is enhanced with the benefit of a hi-tech 3-camera system covering the front and back of the building with a third on the roof.

In More Detail

With the scene set lighting and sound in this apartment is one of ever-changing ambience and emotion. The soft deco-inspired palette that has been used offers further opportunities to highlight by adding splashes of bright colour accents in the way of soft furnishings and furniture pieces.

Starting in the hallway, almost every room features bespoke joinery and hand crafted, built-in furniture by specialists; designers who blend technical expertise with skilled hand finishing. In the rear part of the hallway through the deco arch is a purpose-made bookshelf with a clever secret hinged section that opens into the electric meter cupboard and storage area.

In an anticlockwise direction from the front door, the newly fitted kitchen/breakfast room comprises a superb array of cupboards and units with Kartell pullout shelving and deep drawers with practical organizer inserts by kitchen drawer leader Blum. The kitchen cabinets are supplemented by a special ceramics display unit made as part of the joinery package. Everything is so incredibly well thought out for aesthetics and practicality. Appliances are integrated and top of the range including a Neff combination oven, oven and warming drawer, a five-ring gas hob with central wok burner, overhead externally vented Elica extractor fan, Bosch Fridge freezer and Miele dishwasher. Stylish black granite river pebble finish worktops offset the fresh cabinetry and the cool turquoise splashbacks. A flip top breakfast table is placed in front of the east-facing window to enable daily enjoyment of the stunning views.

In the rear corner of the kitchen a separate utility room houses the washer and dryer plus an internal boiler cupboard furnished with a modern Viessmann condensing boiler, Megaflo hot water tank and Crown water softener.

The primary bedroom has been planned to make the most of the West facing view down to the seafront promenade. The bed is centralised and surrounded with bespoke, hand crafted maple and walnut veneer built-in wardrobes and cupboards based on the 30s Great Ocean Liner style. The en-suite has been completely renewed with Carrera marble used as the main wall cladding. The luxe bathroom is fitted with a double sized shower, ‘his and hers’ designer sinks, electric mist free mirrors and practical under floor heating.

Adjacent is bedroom 3/TV & media room with a wealth of bookshelves and generous storage solutions. Here the joinery is painted a soft grey to match the slate roofs of the crescent opposite creating an harmonious synergy.

The flow through living/dining room are open to each other. The space has been fitted with stunning backlit display units with distinctive curved profile and walnut banding, based on design features on the great Art Deco Ocean Liner interiors. There are deep shelved storage dresser units for the living and dining area. This is a sumptuous space perfect for relaxing and entertaining.

Complete work from home Office/Bedroom 2 is beautifully designed and is currently set up as a ‘his and hers’ office with shaped workstations and storage units plus a future-proofed IT set-up. The storage units have been designed with deep practical drawers configured for either regular storage or filing cabinet usage. This room is perfect for working from home with desk-level power sockets, wired broadband and USB charging all organised in a concealed space accessible from the desktop. There is a mute button in the lighting control panel to quickly silence the sound system to take calls. This room broke with the deco theme and has more of a modern Italianate style. This space can easily be reconfigured to make a sizeable bedroom.

Bedroom 4 enjoys built-in wardrobe space, an ensuite shower room and distinctive tile pattern.

The apartment has a separate large storage room that houses the tech hub with shelving designed to accommodate up to 30 large and 50 smaller storage boxes, plus a fully insulated loft space which is part-boarded with a built-in pull down Werner stair unit.

This really is a rare and unique property, beautifully designed, lovingly restored throughout to present as a modern home enabling a new owner to move in and enjoy all the apartment offers but with the option to adapt to current needs and desires and to go on doing so for years to come.
