Why you’ll like it:
Tree lined avenues of striking Regency homes characterise the Clifton Hill & Montpelier Conservation Area making it undoubtedly one of the most attractive and prestigious places in the city. Perched on the hill just north of the coast yet peacefully tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the city centre, this home has a tranquil spot, yet it sits equidistant between the beach and Seven Dials.
Attractive on the approach, the immaculate exterior is a fine indicator for the quality of finish you can find inside. The façade is in white with restored, sash windows and a pretty front garden setting it back from the road. It is also slightly elevated, so you approach up a few stone steps to your ruby red front door. This opens to a welcoming entrance hall where the exquisite interior design is immediately apparent.
Living room and dining room
Effortlessly elegant, the main reception room spans the depth of the house with light streaming in through the double-glazed, timber-framed bay window on the southerly wall, right through to the French doors on the rear wall which link the space seamlessly with the garden. A room for all seasons, the outside becomes a wonderful extension of the home for entertaining during the summer, while in cooler weather, a gas fire sits within a period fire place to warm the room beautifully. Ochre wallpaper has been paired with pale green carpets, and decorative cornicing wends its way around the high ceilings. In here, there is ample space for formal dining and relaxation, in a space which is set to impress.
Kitchen dining room
With peaceful views of the gorgeous garden, and a rear door for direct access, the kitchen breakfast room has been sensitively designed in keeping with the property, so it has a fine quality finish with timber cabinetry and granite worktops. Within these, the electric oven, fan hob and extractor fan have been fitted, leaving space for a fridge freezer. The utilities have an area of their own through an open archway, with a dishwasher next to washing machine. There is space for informal dining around the kitchen table next to the wood burning stove - adding warmth and atmosphere to wintery suppers. Terracotta floor tiles and traditional, built-in dressers complete the space.
Striped carpet lead the way to the first-floor landing which butterflies to the rear of the building and to bedroom two. Opulent designer wallpaper in rich reds, decorated with birds and flowers is archetypal for the period in which the house was built, so it suits the space perfectly. While this room is dressed as a music room and dressing space, it is perfect as a bedroom with beautiful views of the garden via a tall sash window and plenty of space for a double bed and freestanding pieces of bedroom furniture.
Spanning the front of the house with two tall sash windows framing views over the historic city scape to the sea, the principal bedroom is the largest of the three and has been elegantly dressed, with wallpaper in delicate tones and soft carpet underfoot. Even with a seating area, a double bed and freestanding pieces of bedroom furniture, the floor space is not compromised and being naturally lit from the south, and with high ceilings, it is bright and airy.
Using a modern take on a period style, the bathroom sits centrally to the house, so it is easily accessible from all three bedrooms. Classic chequerboard flooring sits in merry contrast to the decorative wall paper, while traditional style fixtures and fittings have been used for the hand basin and walk-in shower. This has glass sides and a rainfall shower head, and there is a WC in here plus another next door – ideal in any shared space.
Elevated above the city at the top of the house, bedroom three is accessed from its own sweet staircase, so it is perfectly peaceful up here, and it is currently used as both a bedroom and a home office for this reason. There are built in cupboards which maximise the floor space further, and as expected the décor is both stylish and in keeping with the era. Three sash windows fill the room with light from two sides, and at night, you can look out to the stars as you drift off to sleep.
An oasis in the city – this stunning walled garden is a treat for the senses having been expertly landscaped and designed. With a south to north aspect, it is filled with sunshine from morning until evening during the spring and summer when the sun is high in the sky, so plants thrive, and the lawn is lush and green. Its array of mature plants and shrubs invite a host of wildlife including woodpeckers, butterflies and bees, and for an urban location. Beautiful scents fill the air and close to the house, the patio is ideal for alfresco dining. There is also secure side access so you can bring muddy boots and bikes through to the back without traipsing them through the house and being much larger than many city gardens makes it a unique selling point for this property. There is also a brick outhouse that can be used for garden storage.
This charming listed townhouse is perfectly situated in one of Brighton’s finest locations, with the beach, St Ann’s Well Gardens, and the cafe culture of the Seven-Dials on your doorstep. A mere five-minute walk from the cultural and commercial heart of the city, this peaceful home also offers easy access to Brighton Station and the A23, which have direct and fast links to the airports and London.
