Property description

With a rare, triple length mooring alongside its private south east facing terrace, this luxury four bedroom waterfront house offers a stunning coastal lifestyle on an exclusive gated ‘island’ within our world famous Marina, where every room looks over the quiet inner harbour and the allocated parking is secure 24/7. No expense has been spared to create a spectacular but comfortable home designed to invite company. On the ground floor, expansive dining /seating areas flow around to a bespoke Nolte kitchen and out to the fabulous waterside terrace, the largest on this prime side of Trafalgar Gate, which also has direct access to the mooring.

Upstairs, the spacious reception opens to a waterside balcony with room for a table and chairs and also on this floor, the glamorous principle suite has a beautiful bedroom and opulent en suite with high end Bauhaus fittings. On the second storey, all with restful lagoon views, three flawless double bedrooms are ready to move into – the guest room en suite with a veranda looking over the water- and the fabulous family bathroom has all you could dream of including a Nordic sauna. Attracting professionals, international investors and families seeking fresh sea air, easy access to the South Downs National Park and good schools, this prestigious Marina location also offers swift access to the Amex Stadium, airports and London’s West End by road or by train.

Synonymous with glamour, Brighton Marina is the go to destination of our legendary coastal resort just 1.5 miles (10 minutes by cab – or a scenic, seafront 25 minute stroll) from our picturesque cultural heart of the city, although it has a plethora of amenities of its own including waterside restaurants, multi plex cinema, health club/spa, and casino. Children are catered for with outdoor activities and a Bowlplex and if you berth late, there is a 24/7 superstore with petrol service station within a stroll – but out of hearing.

Beyond gates with 24 hour security, this luxury house is on an exclusive, no through promontory surrounded by water, and tucked away at the far end it is both unusually quiet and very safe. Inside, this breathtaking house with 2974ft2 (276.3m2) in which to spread your wings has been beautifully refurbished with an exceptional finish from top to toe, the subtle but meticulous attention to detail including remotely controlled showers and a fire to welcome you home, Axor and Blanco taps throughout and even the power sockets have usb charging points.

The entrance hall:

Instantly inviting, the hallway is flawless, painted in restful tones with refined Fornasetti wallpaper whilst hand built cupboards introduce the discreet family friendly ethos of the home, providing ample storage for coats and bags and there is also a spacious utility room hidden away by the front door so kits can go straight from the car into the utility room. Guests are catered for with a chic cloakroom and the beautiful oiled solid antique oak flooring continues through the double doors into the reception, giving children as well as visitors free reign.

The open plan living/ dining room, family kitchen:

With the wow factor only a prime waterside Marina location can deliver, two broad bow shaped bays with central French doors and windows to each side embrace uninterrupted views of the lagoon which stream through this space together with the sunshine.

Showcasing the absolute best of 21st century internal design, clean lines of streamlined shelving keep the focus firmly on the water – which reflects and ripples across the ceiling high overhead.

Naturally zoned with ample space in which to relax or to dine with friends and family, a choice of smart lighting levels and colours (eg cool white in summer and warm white for comfort during winter) bring ambience and with a tall arched door out to the terrace, the stunning Nolte kitchen wraps around the far end of the room, the bespoke matte units adorned by Cole & Son’s Fornasetti Aquario wallpaper, all safely tucked away from the party behind a peninsular island which has room to seat several people.
High spec appliances within the island include a Siemens Domino touch induction hob, Teppanyaki grill and griddle as well as two gas hobs and extra power points swivel up at the touch of a button.

Designed for entertaining twin hoods keep things fragrant and are made inconspicuous by glass shelving and set at eye level, the Gaggenau 400 series provide a rotisserie oven, combi steam/oven, fan oven, combi microwave oven, espresso machine and warming drawer.
Expert planning has a central Blanco SteelArt sink, with an integrated dishwasher and an integrated fridge, freezer and wine cooler all to hand.

The sun terrace and mooring:

Sweeping along from south east to south west, this is the largest terrace on this premier side of the inner harbour with plenty of space to enjoy entertaining in the transatlantic style only this glorious waterline position can offer. Paved and lit for all year use, there is rare direct access to the mooring, again one of the largest in this unique promontory, and there is a power supply for a boat – the current owners have often used their boat as spill over accommodation for guests.

The first floor reception with balcony:

Decorated to the highest standard, the formal reception spans an impressive 33’0’’ x 23.1’’ (10.05m x 7.04m), A room for all seasons, French doors lead out to a generous balcony with wonderful views over the inner lagoon from east to west. Inside, dark oak gleams underfoot, the fireplace within a limestone mantle is remote controlled and hand built cabinets add to the understated elegance of this tranquil room.

The principle suite:

A private paradise, this soothing retreat looks over to the water and is not directly overlooked. Farrow & Ball paper adorns the walls and twin, floor to ceiling wardrobes provide sophisticated storage. En suite, the bathroom could have stepped out of the pages of an international magazine with fabulous, silver hand basins (and w.c.) by Bauhaus and remote control shower which has a state of the art dual head system.

The second floor family bedrooms, bathroom and guest suite:

Serene and secluded, guests will love this restful haven which opens to a rounded balcony which embraces its unique Marina location, the vista sweeping from our famous white cliffs across the calm sea within the harbour framed by this small, select development. Inside, mirrored wardrobes reflect the view, and the en suite shower room with sleek fittings, is right on trend.

At the front of the house, the second generous bedroom on this floor is also completely private with custom made storage around the bed as well as a dressing table.

At the back, the fourth bedroom is used as a comfortable, quiet place in which to work from home and central to this floor, the luxury bathroom is one of the best we have seen; You can bathe in glory in the statuesque Victoria and Albert baignoir which has a Hudson Reed shower attachment or rejuvenate beneath a dual head shower, the Crosswater opaque handbasin rests upon sleek drawers and the Nordic sauna has space to share.

Agent says:

“Quiet inside, outside there is a wealth of entertainment to enjoy just within a stroll – but out of hearing. Safe and secure, the Marina attracts professionals, families and international celebrities wanting a healthy lifestyle, good schools and privacy for their children with quick access to the city and airports, and this immaculate home delivers on all fronts.”

Owner’s secret:

“Right on the waterfront, we have enjoyed many family celebrations on the terrace which, like the mooring directly by it, is unusually large even in this exclusive part of the Marina. With balconies on each floor the house is light and airy in summer and we love to sit out in the sunshine as we plan the weekend together. During winter, we love to entertain in the warmth– and New Year’s Eve is the ideal time to take the boat out and take in the city’s glittering coastline and fireworks.”
