Full description

Tenure: Share of Freehold

investment corner | 

Structurally, the building is quite a beauty, with intricate woodwork details on the balcony, and graciously tall windows in each of its generous rooms. It just needs a little TLC by those with a sound knowledge of interiors, and it could be a fantastic home. It sits just minutes from Preston Park and its commuter Station, and it is raised up on the first floor it has open views across the treetops of Preston Valley. It has two large bedrooms at present, but it could be reconfigured to create three, so there is a real chance to add value and to modernise hugely, making this and ideal investment opportunity for many.

In brief:

Style: First floor Victorian apartment on a corner plot

Bedrooms: 2 double

Living Rooms: 1 spacious

Outside: West facing balcony

Area: 800 sq.ft 74.3 sq.m

Location: Preston Park

Parking: Residents permit zone A

Why you’ll like it:

It is a rare thing to find properties with so much potential in the city these days, and this one could be a real gem. It is ideal for commuters looking for a bit more space for their money, but who also require a central location. It could also work well for families who desire the favoured school catchment, as Stanford, Varndean and Dorothy Stringer are all within walking distance.

It is elevated above street level on the corner of Millers Road, so it looks out down Roberston Road towards the station, but also over the Victorian bridge and across the roofs of the city. The rooms are all fantastic sizes with high ceilings and plenty of original features. Within the master bedroom and the living room, full height French doors open to the Arts and Crafts balcony, and many of the decorative timber arches are echoed inside the flat too.

There is a second bedroom to the rear of the property which is again a fine size, and there is a separate WC just outside. The main bedroom has a cleverly concealed en suite bathroom, but this could be rearranged with access from the galleried landing if necessary. While the kitchen is separate at present, and in need of replacing, it could be moved into the living room as it is spacious enough, thus creating bedroom number three in its place – certainly food for thought.

This is a property which needs to be seen, as it is brimming with potential.

Bear in Mind:

This flat comes with a share of the freehold, but it does not own the loft space. Should you wish to incorporate this into the flat, it would need to be purchased from the other freeholders at an agreed price.

Owner’s secret;

‘This is quite a unique building which would have felt very grand in its heyday. It would be fantastic to see someone breathe new life into it, bringing it back to its former glory.’

Where it is:

Shops: Local 3 min walk, city centre 15-20 min walk

Station: Preston Park 3 min walk, Brighton 15-18 min walk

Seafront or Park: Preston Park 4 min walk, seafront 20 min walk

Closest Schools:

This is a fantastic opportunity to buy 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 vibrant coastal city has to offer. The A23 and Preston Park Station are also within easy reach, for those requiring fast links to Gatwick or London on a daily or weekly basis.
