Property description

The 7 Dials is one of the most sought after areas in our famous city with a chic but unpretentious vibe and variety of local amenities - and this magnificent, split level penthouse is just around the corner. Ideal for professionals, investors or even a small family as local schools are good, the two double bedrooms are on different levels so do not disturb each other and within a classic period terrace with grand proportions, there is a rare chance to add a little glamour to certain areas of this generous home over time. The living room however, is faultless, offering a sophisticated open plan lifestyle which is large enough to share and this is the perfect meeting place just 1 minute from the Dials and a 9 minute walk to the station serving Gatwick and London and international bars, restaurants and arts venues of North Laine.

Bedrooms: 2 double

Why you’ll like it:
In an exclusive area within a stately, period terrace this particular house has an attractive approach past a front garden to a grand front door, now secured by answer phone. Inside the communal hall has period features and the front door to this maisonette on the first floor opens to a private staircase with a ceiling which soars to triple height high above your head – so first impressions are good.

Ideal for guests or sharers like health workers who work unsociable hours, the first of the double bedrooms is at the top of the first flight, and with restful views and dual aspect it would also be a bright and comfortable place in which to work from home. Conveniently next door, the modern bathroom has all you need including a shower attachment on the bath, heated rail and natural light.

Up broad stairs, the landing has access to the attic and the high ceiling gives food for thought. Ahead, the stylish living room spans the full width of this substantial building and sunlight streams through the broad bay window which almost fills the east wall. There is plenty of space in which to relax or share with friends– and this is the natural place for friends to meet as they can walk down from the station and then into town- and discreet storage by the period style fireplace helps to keep the space uncluttered. The kitchen area invites company with a sociable central island fitted with wine racks and a classic black and white, the units line one wall, so do not dominate the whole space. Wood surfaces gleam beneath a choice of lighting levels and well planned, the central Rangemaster could stay subject to circumstance, the dishwasher is integrated with a washing machine that has been installed and there is still room for a tall fridge freezer.

The smooth oak flooring continues into the quiet master bedroom at the back which brings romance to life with a large window framing unusually open, leafy views for this central location, and with twin sets of wardrobes stretching to the ceiling – which is high, there is also ample floor space even with a large double bed in situ.

There is also a possibility to extend the flat with another floor above, obviously by getting the right consent.

Agent Says:
“Full of light and brimming with character, this spacious home is very private in a great location.”

Owner’s secret:
“This location is lively and convenient, but high above any traffic, this apartment is surprisingly quiet. Every room is light and inviting, and the living room is ideal for entertaining after a day on the beach or before a night out in the city.”

What’s around you:
Shops: 1 minute walk
Train Station: Brighton 2 minutes by cab, 9 to walk
Seafront or Park: Park 8 minutes’ walk, sea about 5 by car
Closest schools:
Primary: Cottesmore St Mary’s RC, Brunswick
Secondary: Cardinal Newman, Hove Park
Sixth Form: BHASVIC
Private: Windlesham, Lancing Prep, Brighton College, Brighton & Hove High

Ideal for those needing fast access to Gatwick or London as the station is a 9 minute walk – or 2 by cab - the 7 Dials is one of Brighton’s favourite locations known for its friendly shops and al fresco lifestyle. Close to Dyke Road Park’s tennis courts, open air theatre and playground it is also only a short stroll to the sports facilities and open spaces of St Anne’s Wells which hosts events during festivals. Local schools are good and within easy reach, the beach is nearby and the National Park is just a few minutes’ drive– so a healthy lifestyle beckons! The vibrant arts venues, international restaurants and cosmopolitan shopping of the city are all quick to get to by bus or on foot and for those who need a car, there’s swift access to the A23/A27.
