Why you’ll like it:

This luxury apartment is in the central wing of this iconic complex which has an impressive entrance with a secure entry system and the concierge’s office. Broad steps with a brass rail lead you to the lift waiting to whisk you smoothly up to the fifth floor, where this apartment is found to your right. 

Inside is a spacious hallway with big cupboards for coats and bags and to your left, the glamorous living room is full of sunshine and sea views both pouring in through the south wall which is nearly all glass. There is plenty of space for relaxing or entertaining in this elegantly proportioned room and to your right a broad door opens into the fabulous south facing balcony which has a glass balustrade to maximise the glorious views of the English Channel over the manicured gardens, and where friends can join you for tapas after a busy day at work or shopping in the city. 

Across the hallway, the quiet double bedroom is a generous size and the large window has a deep sill ideal for elbows to rest on as you watch the boats returning to safe harbour, and with brand new grey carpet and soft aquamarine on the walls this restful room is ready to move into – there is even quite a lot of storage already built in for you.

Around the corner is a discrete w.c. and to the left, the bathroom has a white suite with a shower attachment on the bath. The large porthole window brings in magnificent views up the hill to the Downs and when bathing, all that you can see is the sky.

Continuing the calm colour scheme of this bright apartment, the kitchen/breakfast room has a chic Scandinavian kitchen and gleaming work surfaces along two walls. The electric hob and oven are integrated as is the washing machine, and the beautiful mosaic splashbacks were designed and made by the current owner. At the far end of the room, a raised, deep shelf separates the eating area from the working space and set within a deep bay, you also have magnificent views at the back which sweep up the hills of Kemp Town to the hospital, across the grandstand at Race Hill and on to the rolling Downs which encircle this lively coastal city.

Bear in mind:

The yearly maintenance charge includes hot water and seasonal background heating provided by the gas fired boiler plant.

There is also a separate safe and secure bike storage and luggage storage too.
