Property description

Benefitting from share of freehold and only one block from our famous pebble beaches, this design led maisonette has a sophisticated, open plan living room with uninterrupted views of the sea and two private double bedrooms, ideal for sharers or working from home as they are on separate levels. Beautifully refurbished with double glazing, atmospheric Farrow & Ball tones and Fired Earth tiles throughout, this top floor home soars above the sought after St James’s Street with its vibrant al fresco lifestyle and cool, inclusive vibe -the perfect place to enjoy with friends. Attracting international investors and professionals who work in the city, it is a 3 minute walk to the legal centres, 4 to Amex and 15 to the County Hospital. An enjoyable ramble down St James’s Street or scenic stroll along the seafront will take you to the chic Lanes, art venues and legendary clubs, and if you need swift access to the airports, London or Portsmouth, the station is just 5 minutes by cab.

Now is the time to buy in this popular conservation area just a stone’s throw from the sea with a walled park around the corner and the new Amex Plaza under construction, which has plans for cafés and public spaces to enjoy. Rising above a one way street which quietens at night, this spacious refurbished maisonette is reached via a side entrance secured by answer phone, and sensor lighting guides you to this secret eyrie which spans the whole of the top (2nd floor) of a period building.

The front door opens to an atmospheric hallway and the first of the double bedrooms, which is ideal if you are health, financial or flight professional who works unsocial hours as you can return without disturbing the main apartment, and they won’t disturb you. With historic rooftops views it is not overlooked, there is a deep under stair cupboard for suitcases or work bags and ample floorspace even with a generous double bed in situ.

Upstairs, the second double bedroom is quiet and comfortable, looking over the tops of its lower Georgian neighbours to the open green spaces of Dorset Gardens, with the pinnacles of the Royal Pavilion peeking through trees to the west. Beautifully decorated it is ready for your move and as in the room below, the vendors are happy to discuss the stylish wardrobes as they were purchased specifically for these rooms. Opposite, the luxury bathroom has a spa like feel with high quality fittings including a dual head shower above the bath and waterfall tap over a hand basin set in sleek storage.

Ahead, with all the key elements of cosmopolitan living, the stunning living space has a high ceiling with recessed lighting, bamboo underfoot and a south wall lined with windows, flooding the room with light and bringing in glorious, uninterrupted views of the sea. There is plenty of room in which to create defined areas to enjoy with company, complete with flame effect fire for winter evenings and dressed to impress, the streamlined designer kitchen is tucked away off centre stage, so although sociable it does not dominate the whole space. Party perfect, the stylish units conceal sophisticated storage and high spec integrated appliances include a Zanussi touch induction hob with lit hood, electric fan oven, fridge and washing machine, so you can unpack the crystal and pour the champagne.

Agent says:

“This luxury apartment with a designer finish is light and spacious with the best of our international coastal resort on your doorstep.”

Owner’s secret:

“The location suits our busy lifestyle, and it is lovely to start the day looking at the sea through the kitchen window and watching the boats on the water or swimmers in it – and as it is so close, we walk along the beach every day. Brighton is famous for its shopping and oyster bars as well as festivals celebrating our inclusive community and during Pride St James’s Street comes alive, but tucked away up here although we have a birds eye view we can close the windows and relax.”
