Why you’ll like it:

In 1824 the prestigious houses of Sussex Square were constructed for the rich and famous, and this continues to be one of Brighton’s most distinguished addresses. This beautiful home, one of only three apartments in a gracious Regency building opposite the southern enclosures, is approached up a wide, flagstone step. The communal hallway has high ceilings and is well cared for, and the door to this apartment is on the third floor.

Inside, a bright hallway with a high ceiling (and useful cupboard for coats and bags) welcomes you in. The beautiful burnished mahogany floor leads into and continues throughout the elegant living rooms to your left. Immediately left is a formal dining room where stunning views of the Marina pour in through the generously sized windows and which is has ample space for both a large table and a grand piano. Glass floor to ceiling double doors to your right can be opened to include the reception into the entertaining space. The pull of the sea view through the graceful front windows is irresistible, with the green of the gardens revealing themselves as you draw near and the creative vision of the current owner also begins to become clear, as the metal sculpture between the windows is in fact a contemporary radiator!

This thoughtful blend of the old and new holds true to Kemp’s original idea of creating classically beautiful homes with the most glamorous and modern fittings available, and continues in the very 21st Century kitchen where sleek red and white glossy units with dramatic black granite combine with spot and down lights to create a chic space with a top of the range touch induction hob and electric cooker integrated to your left, and a dishwasher conveniently close to the sink, where the views from the window almost make it worth dealing with the dishes!

At the top of the stairs the glamour goes on into a luxurious bathroom beautifully tiled in white with a glass border the colours of the sea. The floor glistens beneath lighting which includes Led’s along the side of the bath which is itself shaped for plenty of elbow room at the shower end, and nicely close to the heated towel rail. The ceramic hand basin rests on natural wood, and opaque glass shelving adds to the relaxing feel.

On the top floor, the master bedroom is of the restful proportions so typical of the period and has more uplifting views from the Downs at the back of the city to the coast. A door, next to refined fitted wardrobes, leads into a magnificent en suite which has both a delux shower and a corner Jacuzzi bath with lights colouring the water a tranquil blue. At the front, the second bedroom has an original brick feature wall, fitted wardrobes with deep under eaves storage beyond and a window seat – which also conceals storage- beneath a window with some of the best views of the garden enclosures leading down to the sea. At the end of the hallway is a third room, with a stain glass window, currently used as a music room but which has a pull out bed hidden at the back for guests to use, and there has been a four foot double bed in that space before.

In the hall, switches on the wall automatically lower a sturdy 'wide step' wooden ladder with handrail and open a glass skylight through which you step out into breath taking views, soaring round a full 3600 from the roof tops of Kemp town and the Downs, across to the white cliffs of Telscombe, and rolling over the Marina and on across the Pier to Worthing and the North Downs. Fantastic!

Bear in mind:

There is no lift in the building, keeping the integrity of the room sizes, and this beautifully decorated home, designed and lived in by the architect David Percy, is chain free and ready to move into. 

Owner’s secret:

“Whichever room you are in and whatever mood, the sea is always there to inspire you.”
