Property description

Tenure: Freehold

A famous coastal landmark since 1818, Regency Square is one of the finest garden squares to face the sea in the UK, and this Grade II listed beauty designed by Amon Wilds and son looks south for the sun. Homes within this exclusive square rarely appear on the market and a whole property is a once in a lifetime find. Organised as an elegant four bedroom house with a luxurious master suite and a glamorous one bedroom, self- contained apartment for guests it is privately tucked away from the crowds and ideal for luxurious entertaining. Restored to its former glory with assistance from Jordan Cluroe of the BBC’s ‘Great British Design Challenge’, the main residence has a sociable ground floor which opens to a stylish, private garden and upstairs, glorious proportions reign supreme in a sun filled reception with an iconic south facing balcony. All of the bedrooms are comfortable doubles, and just four minutes’ stroll from the international shopping and restaurants of Western Road and Churchill Square it is more convenient than the peaceful setting suggests. Good schools, parks and arts venues are easy to reach, and the whole of the city of Brighton & Hove as well as the station are easy to reach on foot, by bus or by cab.

Why you’ll like it:
In one of the most exclusive squares of this international coastal city this historic house has an impressive frontage with graceful bays and wrought iron balcony and inside, this reinvented home has roared back to life with a balanced eye keeping the essence of the building by a sensitive merging of period details with the best the 21st century has to offer - beginning in the entrance hall where a glass door has the date of the house engraved upon it and opens to an inviting hallway adorned with period finials and sweeping staircase.

The ground floor reception/dining room
Featured on ‘The Great British Design Challenge’ of 2013, Jordan Cluroe’s sophisticated design has created a timeless reception and dining area to enjoy. Light streams through two broad windows following the front bay whilst in the far wall, a tall sash window brings in garden views. Given the brief ‘Regency Hollywood’, refined glamour has been brought to a classically beautiful room where one of a pair of marble fireplaces has a gas coal effect fire and the other an original iron inset, and painted wood panelling and decorative frieze have been carefully sourced.

The kitchen and garden:
Opening to the fabulous garden, the kitchen is lined with windows and is beautifully planned with everything flowing from the touch induction hob and streamlined hood. All of the high spec appliances are integrated for you and these include combi and fan ovens, microwave and coffee machine as well as a fridge, freezer and dishwasher. Sleek units topped by granite conceal sophisticated storage and the expert attention to detail extends to providing both a filtered drinking water tap and instant boiling water tap, so every need is catered for.

Outside, the private walled garden is a sun trap by day and tranquil haven in the evening. With a sail awning as a shade, a seating area by the house is paved and lit and across the astro turf lawn (for ease of maintenance), there is a second paved area for al fresco dining enlivened by a mature Virginia Creeper which flames in the autumn but also helps to cool walls during summer.

The first floor reception, bedroom and bathroom:
This magnificent reception was intended to impress, conceived by Brighton’s most influential father and son architectural partnerships of Wilds and Wilds, with grand bow windows which reach from floor to soaring ceiling and lead to the south facing balcony with oblique views of the listed garden square. Inside, there is plenty of floor space in which to relax or to share with friends and the walls are embellished by the original floral frieze. With traditional cabinets and shelving to each side, an elegant white fireplace adds to the refined atmosphere of the room.

Next door, guests will love the comfortable double bedroom backing on to the garden with a fitted wardrobe, tasteful décor and luxury en suite shower room to soak away the heat of the day. Close by on the half landing, a guest cloakroom also cleverly conceals a utility area where you most need it – near the bedrooms.

the master suite – second floor
Serene and soothing, the master suite is all about relaxing in a magnificent setting. Sunlight pours into the bedroom through tall windows -and most unusually for this historic quarter, this room is completely private as it is not directly overlooked. Restfully proportioned with a scented oil fireplace, you will sleep well beneath a mural depicting Rinaldo conquered by Love for Armida by Van Dyck. The spacious en suite’s a luxurious haven where you can soak in the cares of the day away in a grand baignoir or reinvigorate beneath a powerful shower ready for a night in the city. The discreet glamour continues with twin hand basins set into a marble topped cabinet and glittering wallpaper matches the sparkle of quartz.

The third floor:
Comfortable and quiet at the top of the house, two lofty bedrooms each have plenty of space and character of their own, and the room at the front, which spans the full width of this substantial building, has a glimpse of the sea over rooftops. Designed to impress, the central en suite shower room is both chic and thoughtful with a warming rail for pyjamas and towels.

The self-contained apartment:
Built in an age with a need and penchant for natural light, this lower ground floor has plenty of it. With its own private entrance to the street and external cavern for bikes, inside the stairs to the main house could easily be replaced if you so choose. The meticulous attention to detail throughout the whole property continues in the double bedroom which is beautifully decorated. Private at the back, the living room is elegant of proportion with French doors to a little patio with a water feature and steps to the main garden. The gleaming kitchen is good to go with a gas hob, fan oven and hood, and plumbing is in place for a dishwasher and a washing machine. Central to the apartment, the chic shower room brings a strong, polished finish to this exceptional home.

Agent Says:
“Rare to the market in a sought after location, this chain free home has a self- contained apartment on the lower floor which is ideal if you are looking for an annexe for family, thinking of working from home or wanting to produce an income.”

Owner’s secret:
“We have enjoyed creating what has been a happy home with a real sense of history. Family life is made easy as you can walk to the beach, park, shops and schools, and as a couple we can be in a bar or restaurant in minutes. Quiet and friendly, this quiet part of the square is safely tucked away from traffic.”
