In brief

Built in 2006, this exclusive apartment complex remains the most prestigious in the area, and is perfectly positioned in leafy surroundings skirting Preston Park. This two-bedroom property resides on the third floor, and it is wonderfully light with a south-easterly orientation; looking out from the balcony over the famous Victorian viaduct. It also has glorious room proportions with an open plan kitchen for entertaining, and only the finest materials have been used to achieve a polished finish. The building is beautifully maintained, expertly managed with 24hr CCTV and a secure underground parking space too, so it could be the perfect ‘lock-up-and leave’ holiday home. The local schools and transport links are excellent, with two commuter stations within walking distance, so this will also appeal to families, commuters and investors alike.

Why you’ll like it

This prestigious development of contemporary apartments is unrivalled in the Preston Park area for exclusivity and style, and it certainly stands out with its curved façade adorned with glass balconies; akin to a modern sea liner. You enter through iron gates, decorated with sweet bird motifs, via a video entry system, and into the communal hallway, which feels much like a five-star hotel with gleaming floors, designer artwork and gentle lighting. You take the lift to the third floor where the apartments are clearly numbered, with this one down the corridor to the left.

Once inside, you are welcomed into a wide hallway with plush cream carpets and fresh white walls, and it is immediately clear that this is a spacious and stylish apartment. There are three deep storage cupboards; one to house the washing machine, another for the Megaflo heating system, and the other for household items keeping the flat clutter free. You are immediately warmed by the underfloor heating which runs throughout the apartment and is zoned, but being a new and well insulated building, it is rarely needed.

Directly ahead as you enter, double doors lead through to the magnificent open plan living room and kitchen which is a delightful space for sophisticated entertaining. There is ample space for comfortable seating, formal dining and working, and whilst the kitchen is open to the room, it is recessed making it feel separate whilst retaining the social aspect of open plan living. Three large picture windows run along the outer wall, filling the room with natural light, and from this elevated position, they frame the cityscape perfectly.

The kitchen area has high quality units in mocha gloss, topped with granite, and into these, the fridge, freezer, slim-line dishwasher, microwave, oven and hob are all seamlessly integrated. The granite rises-up the wall as a splashback too to complete the high-end look.

Returning to the hall, the family bathroom is first on the left, which has a chic design with white tiles on the walls, mahogany wood panelling and shelving, and a modern white suite with a shower over the bath. At the far end of the hall, the master bedroom is to the right, and is a wonderful size with space for a king size bed, and several pieces of bedroom furniture, without compromising on floor space at all. From here you can access the balcony which is the perfect spot to enjoy your morning coffee during the warmer seasons, where vast skies open-up above the roof and treetops of the city. The en suite bathroom is another luxurious room with a walk-in shower, contemporary tiles on the walls and the floor, and a tall heated rail for your towels.

Bedroom two is next door on the left and is a very comfortable double with the same sunny orientation as the master. Like the master bedroom, this room has cream carpet and is subtly lit by spotlights for added relaxation and calm, and with quality double glazing throughout, you can always ensure a peaceful night’s sleep.

Bear in Mind:

This apartment comes with a remainder of a 999 year lease from 2006, plus the water rates, the gardener and a cleaner are included in the maintenance fee.

Owner’s secret

‘There is a wonderfully friendly community at Preston Mansions which adds to the sense of security here. The location is perfect too as it is so peaceful with the park on your doorstep, yet the city, the beach and the station are just a stroll away.’

Where it is

Shops: Local 4 min walk, North Laine 15-20 min walk

This is a stunning apartment in a popular location which is well served for shops, parks and schools. There are plenty of local green spaces, and great transport links, but you are also only a short walk from everything this fashionable coastal city has to offer. The A23 and two commuter stations are also within easy reach, for those requiring fast links to the universities, airports or London on a daily or weekly basis.
