why you'll like it  

Completely unique within Kemp Town Village, and peacefully tucked away on a quiet one-way road leading down to the beach; this two-bedroom cottage is a hidden gem. Sitting amongst Regency townhouses, this sweet home can be found beyond a wooden gate and courtyard, where inside, it is deceptively spacious with generous, well-designed rooms. Much of the space has been modernised for the 21st Century lifestyle, although the décor is in keeping with its period surroundings, and it is ready to move straight into. Its proximity to the beach, Brighton Station and the vibrant shops, bars and restaurants of the city will appeal to holiday let investors, professionals and city slickers alike.

The house itself is formed from a very large, single-story extension running up the road from one of the neighbouring Regency townhouses, giving it a homely cottage-style feel, yet with a huge amount of space within. There is a lovely double bedroom with private garden views and plenty of built-in storage, to the right of the entrance hall, and to the left, the hallway, with stripped and varnished wooden floors, steps down to the main living room.

From here you get the first glimpse of the Regency style interior décor; where plaster mouldings and Doric pillars adorn the space. These add character to the room and are very much in keeping with the older properties in the area. To the right, a step up takes you through to the dining room adjoining the kitchen which is lit from above via a large skylight. The kitchen has been modernised with warm wood Shaker units to echo the tone of the floor, providing a huge amount of storage at both wall and base levels. The dual oven, induction hob and extractor have been integrated, leaving space for a tall fridge freezer and a washing machine, and while there is no dishwasher here at present, there would be space for one with a little reconfiguration. 

Light streams in to the living room from the east due to large picture windows on the street facing side, and there is ample space in here for comfortable sofas and chairs for relaxation and entertaining. Double doors open to the second bedroom from here, which shares the same peaceful views of the garden and has space for a double bed and freestanding pieces of furniture. Being so easily accessible from the living room, this space would work well as a home office too.

Another door from the lounge leads through to the main bathroom, which is classic in white and royal blue; enjoying a corner style bath with traditional shower attachments, and is again illuminated by a full-size atrium skylight, so you can star gaze as you while away the hours after a long day.

bear in mind

There is a new Worcester combination boiler which has been fitted within the linen cupboard in the bathroom.

owner's secret 

“This is such a unique property which is always a delight to come home to. It would be ideal as a holiday let however as it is full of character and quirky to attract the Brighton and Hove holiday maker, and it sits within one of the best locations in the city. It is the energy of Kemp Town which attracts people here. Everyone is so friendly and there is so much to do nearby. The proximity of the beach means it really comes alive during the summer when you can sit outside long after the sun has gone down.”
