Why you’ll like it:

The house, with a traditional Dutch gable, looks attractive from the outside and inside, the atmospheric hallway leads through on the right to a charming room looking over the lane with parquet flooring, ideal as a formal dining room or a guest bedroom, with a gas fire in place for more intimate evenings. To the left you step into the 21st century as the bright kitchen has triple sky lights and streamlined units in a fashionable glossy grey topped by wood work surfaces. The fabulous gas hob is integrated beneath a stylish extractor and the electric ovens are thoughtfully set at eye level. There is plenty of room for a table and there is no need to clutter the space with units as tucked around the corner is a separate utility room with access to a small outside area.

Next door to the kitchen is a second reception which was constructed on what once was a courtyard for the stables but which has been converted in keeping with the age of the house with a large Georgian style window looking west across the quiet lane and a door leads through to the garage, which is a rare find in this central location and so close to the sea!

Up the stairs, which have a discreet guest cloakroom tucked away behind them, the first floor has flexibility of accommodation. On the right a chic shower room is next door to the first of the peaceful double bedrooms which has a fitted wardrobe and period fireplace. Across the hallway is a second room, currently, as is usual in period houses, a living room, which has access to the delightful roof terrace that spans the breadth of the house from east to west but which is sheltered from the salt winds. On the other side of the terrace is a spacious room which is a pretty shape and has both a window and a sky light, making a charming studio or a private office.

The airy master bedroom is on the top floor with windows in two walls and a door through to the luxurious “Jack and Jill” bathroom which has twin hand basins resting on wooden storage and a shower above the bath. There is an airing cupboard-vital in a busy home- hidden away, and the fourth restful bedroom is across the landing.

Bear in mind:

There is a famous but tiny pub on the corner of the street which doesn’t have a garden and this house is well away from it anyway.

Owner’s secret:

“It is really easy to entertain here, but it can also be a peaceful refuge from the fun we have out there!”

Where it is:

Shops: Upper St James Street 2 minutes, Brighton Churchill Square 10 minutes by bus

Train Station: Brighton Mainline 10-15 minutes by bus

Seafront or park: Seafront 1 minute, Queen’s Park 10 minute walk

Closest Schools:

Primary: Queen’s Park, St Lukes

Secondary: Dorothy Stringer or Varndean

Private: Brighton College

This gracious period building has flexibility of accommodation, a hard to find roof terrace and a rare garage. It is centrally located within moments of the beach and all Kemp Town has to offer with its eclectic tea shops, bars and restaurants. The famous Lanes and theatres are within walking distance, as is the hospital, and with both the Marina and main line station within easy reach, this three storey house is also well located for those needing to journey further afield.
