Perfectly positioned in central Hove, just minutes from the beach and the bustling shops and restaurants of Western Road, this apartment sits on some of the most sought-after land in the country, and with both Brighton and Hove Stations an easy stroll away, this apartment would be perfect for first time buyers, sharers, commuters, downsizers, and investors alike.

Why you’ll like it:
On a tree-lined road equidistant from both Brighton and Hove’s cultural and social centres, and within walking distance of two commuter stations – this flat is ideally positioned to experience the vibrant energy of this cool, coastal city.
Built in the 1890s, these Victorian terraces sprung up at a time when Brighton was in full swing as the place to live for the fashionable and wealthy who wished to reap the benefits of the sea air and bathing. While many of these grand buildings have been converted into spacious apartments such as this, they are still as sought-after today.
This apartment sits mid-way up the hill on the left and is approached up traditionally tiled steps to your door, which opens to a communal stairway where your door is clearly numbered on the first floor. Once inside, you are immediately drawn into the generous living room due to light streaming in through the east facing bay window. This provides the perfect space for a dining table and chairs, while there is ample space elsewhere for comfortable furnishings. Taking centre stage, a beautiful marble fireplace forms a decorative mantel. The deep skirtings, picture rails and cornicing are original, and all come together to create an attractive and homely space.
Open plan to the room, the kitchen has smart Shaker units in light wood which offer a huge amount of storage at both wall and base levels, and while the gas hob and oven have been integrated, space has been left for an under counter fridge, freezer and a washing machine.
Facing west, bedroom two looks out over the garden, and a lovely warm light fills the space during the afternoon and early evening during summer. As with the living room, the ceiling is high, adding to the sense of space, and its peaceful position means it would work well as a home office if need be. The bathroom is conveniently next door with a shower over the bath.
Steps leads down to the tranquil master bedroom at the far end of the property which is slightly larger than bedroom two but shares the same sunny aspect with leafy views of mature trees and their wildlife within neighbouring gardens. There is ample space for a king size bed and a wall of built-in storage maximises the floor space further.
There is real potential in this property which is a fantastic size and the location cannot be beaten, so any investment here is sound.
“This is such a wonderful area to live in; so vibrant, and a real sense of community. You have so much to do right here on your doorstep and being so close to the beach in the summer is a real treat. We were also surprised how quiet it is here – it’s hard to believe you’re so close to the city centre.”
