Why you’ll like it:

This spacious apartment is in the west wing of this glamorous complex which has an impressive and secure entrance by the beautifully manicured gardens. The imposing lobby has two lifts, the one on the right waiting to whisk you smoothly up to the first floor and the doorway to this apartment. 

Inside is an inviting hallway with big cupboards for coats and bags and it is worth heading straight into the glamorous living room to your left. Sunshine and sea views pour through the tall windows stretching the entire length of the west wall which have sills large enough to perch upon to watch the sun sets, this would also be the perfect spot in winter to admire the view as the heaters are concealed beneath them too!  There is plenty of space for relaxing or entertaining in this elegantly proportioned room which has a stylish fireplace adding character as well as warmth and to your left, a broad door opens into the fabulous balcony which has a glass balustrade to maximise the glorious, open views which sweep around from the English Channel, across the thriving city and on to the encircling Downs.

Ideally placed between the living room and the master bedroom, the contemporary shower room is decorated in the colours of the sea with a chic hand basin resting on storage and there is a sumptuous heated rail for your towels. Next door, the light and airy master bedroom is a generous size where the large window brings in the sea, and with a whole wall of fitted wardrobes this restful room is all ready to move into.

Returning to the front door, central to the apartment is the guest bedroom (once for the maid) which is a good size, so ideal for sharers too, and it looks over the newly landscaped gardens at the back and up to the golf course, park and Downs. 

At the end of the hallway, the bright, modern kitchen shares those open views and has plenty of white units topped by practical work surfaces. The electric hob and oven are integrated for you and there is plumbing in place for a washing machine as well as space for a tall fridge freezer, and there is no need to clutter this classically Deco black and white space up as there is also a big larder tucked away.

Bear in mind:

The yearly maintenance charge includes 24 hour security seven days a week, hot water, external maintenance to the building and seasonal background heating provided by the gas fired boiler plant.
