Kendrick Property Services are delighted to offer an opportunity to acquire a rare Grade l listed property in the heart of Brighton's famous Kemp Town. The work on Sussex Square started in 1823 with the original shell completed by 1827, these works were over seen by Thomas Kemp after whom Kemp Town was named.

This unique home steeped in history was originally owned by Lady Sackville who in 1919 employed Sir Edwin Lutyens the renowned architect to design an outdoor dining area for her (copies of these plans hang on the wall in the living room). These works included a rear brick built vault space that was originally created to form a connection between Sussex Square and a bespoke garden which was to be designed in collaboration with Gertrude Jekyll. However, this was never completed and the lower ground vault accessing the garden was left unused and was slowly lost to builders' debris, general waste.

Further developments were carried out in the 1930s to convert Sussex Square into residential flats and a 'Small House' was built above the vault.

This lost vault has now been re opened and connected to 'The Small House' to form an exceptional living/ kitchen area that has exposed this architectural masterpiece which has recently won an award from the Sussex Heritage Trust.

Upon entering the walls of this secluded property, you will find a well presented hidden garden that has ample space for entertaining a number of guests. As you enter this fully renovated property, you will first notice the study area that is ideal if you work from home. Also on the ground floor there is a double bedroom that benefits from a en suite shower room. On the first floor are two bright and spacious double bedrooms of which one has access to an east facing balcony that looks towards the sea and the garden. It is on the lower level that the drama of the Edwin Lutyens design is apparent. This area is accessed by a sweeping staircase leading to a majestic living area that is flooded with light from a large atrium and multiple skylights. On the adjacent side of Sir Edwin Lutyens brick work is a newly fitted bespoke designed kitchen that has a number of high end appliances as well as a utility room.

Further to the above 'The Small House' is part of The Kemp Town Residents meaning the property has access to the private gardens in Sussex Square that boasts 6 acres of gated greenery as well as a private tunnel direct to the beach.

This is truly a one off opportunity and if you are looking for a property that has that special something as well as a remarkable story then look no further.
