Embrace the Brighton lifestyle in this party perfect three bedroom house with a VIP attitude and sunny west facing patio to enjoy. 1 minute from the station, 2 to the legendary shopping and bars of North Laine and just a 10 minute walk -past more shopping- to our famous clubs and beaches. The wow factor kicks in as soon as you step into to a sophisticated living room which opens to the private patio and continues all the way through the streamlined fitted kitchen and luxury bathroom to the three stylish bedrooms – one of which is currently a private home office. Within a bay fronted, Georgian beauty set back behind waving palms, this deceptively spacious house will attract professionals who work in the city or at home, commuters, investors or even a small family as Brighton Station serves Gatwick and London, local schools are good and the area is well served for green spaces which also hold events during our fabulous festivals.
Designed to embrace life and friendship this house is in a prime location with fresh, local produce on your doorstep and where bus routes take you to every part of Brighton & Hove as well as to the sea and surrounding South Downs National Park.
Looking very traditional outside with great charm in the sweeping bows, there is a well organised brick paved approach and inside has been opened up to create a sleek, contemporary room with adaptable floorspace ready to work, rest or play. Solid wood is underfoot, the decoration is crisp and stylish colonial shutters are fitted on the timber framed double glazed windows at the front and tall glazed door at the far end which opens to a lit, sheltered oasis ideal for al fresco dining.
Perfect for cooks who like to entertain, the streamlined kitchen has plenty of storage providing generous working surfaces. Only put in a few years ago with a recently replaced oven, it is good to go with an integrated gas hob and fan oven beneath a lit hood as well as a fridge and freezer, and the classy Blomberg washer drier could stay, subject to circumstance.
Outside there is a seamless flow to the paved patio which becomes an extension of the ground floor during summer – and it is the ideal spot for friends to gather before walking into the city. A secluded refuge large enough for a table and chairs, it is also level with the house – a feature surprisingly hard to find in a city built on the South Downs!
Returning inside, the luxury bathroom is completely private beneath a skylight and high end fittings include a powerful shower head above the bath and a warming rail for towels.
Up a staircase which appears to float with open treads, a glass balustrade and steel bannisters, the landing is inviting as all the rooms are fitted with opaque glass doors to bring sunlight into the heart of the home. Quiet at the back, the first of the bedrooms has a south wall lined with windows and it is currently used as a home office, although it could be a comfortable guest room as there is room for a four foot bed, with a cloakroom just outside on one side of the lobby and a double cupboard on the other.
The second airy bedroom is a good sized double where the large wardrobe may be able to stay, and it looks over the patio to a privately owned, small, gated car park behind so it isn’t directly overlooked and it also adds to the security of this house. Spanning the full width of the building at the front, you will live the dream in a majestic principal bedroom with calm decoration, and secondary glazing backs up the double glazed windows which bring in the morning sunshine.
“Brighton is a magnet for the rich, the famous and the beautiful and this light filled house is designed to deliver the perfect setting for those who want to enjoy this prime location in our vibrant, inclusive, coastal city.”
“We have travelled the world and settled here because Brighton was a revelation. It is the jewel of the south coast with something for everyone no matter what you’re into and an intercontinental, al fresco lifestyle you don’t need to travel for. There are hidden gems to discover from coastal views to surprisingly beautiful cityscapes, and the diverse landscapes of the nature reserves, forests and countryside of the surrounding National Park are just breathtaking – and all are easily accessed from this location by bus, train or cycle, so you won’t need a car.”
