why you’ll like it:

This is a rare find -and it’s worth taking a little time to appreciate the beauty of this grand end of terrace Villa itself including a handsome entrance secured by video entry. A very large maisonette on two levels, expert design has ensured access on each floor, one of which opens to the lift. Through the main door, a butterfly landing in the hallway is particularly inviting with inset lighting and demarcates a private ‘wing’ for guests. It’s also worth noting that the flawless finish of this recent refurbishment includes underfloor heating in all bathrooms and the kitchen, and the apartment is decorated throughout in the subtle tones of Farrow & Ball.

the reception and designer kitchen

The crowning jewel of this magnificent Victorian building, the first floor reception sweeps open to an intricately wrought balcony with views along the genteel, leafy Avenue to Hove Lawns and the sea. Sunshine streams through the broad east bay which almost fills the front wall and stretches from the floor to a ceiling soaring to an incredible 3.95m above your head-at its lowest point! The majestic proportions allow plenty of space for discreet zoning and as the end of terrace, there’s a bonus of another tall window by the flame effect fire within a classic stone surround.

Tucked away in its own gorgeous space bordered by glass and steel, the designer kitchen is sociable but not intrusive. Four levels of ambient lighting add atmosphere to stylish units which conceal sophisticated storage solutions and are topped by timeless stone surfaces. Ready for use, all of the high spec appliances are integrated and include a Neff five ring gas hob, fan oven, microwave, fridge, freezer, dishwasher and washing machine.

the master suite

Unleash your inner celebrity in a fabulous master bedroom with serene décor, beautiful original frieze, contemporary wardrobes and stairs which rise to a sunken whirlpool bath, wet room style shower with dual heads and a hand basin big enough to share. A sculptural rail heats your towels whilst a separate w.c preserves your mystique. Designed as a quiet haven where you can relax and recharge, and private at the top of a bespoke spiral staircase in keeping with the age of the building, any stresses of the day will simply disappear as you watch the sea through a large bay window which brings in the morning sun.

the guest wing

Calm and quiet at the back of this substantial building, the second of the apartment’s statuesque double bedrooms has soothing leafy views and is currently used as a gym. Next door, the romantic guest room impresses with its generous dimensions and spacious balcony where you can soak up the afternoon and evening sunshine, and the stunning en suite wouldn’t look out of place in a glossy magazine with a steam room and shower.
