One of only 24 Grade I listed buildings in Brighton and Hove this is an exceptional example of Regency architecture. When a building is Grade 1 it’s deemed to be of special architectural or historic interest and it’s easy to see why this amazing building would fall into that category. Facing the sea with black railings against white stucco walls, terraces like this are what has made Brighton famous.
Steeped in history, even the entrance to this building is stunning with regal white columns either side of chequered steps and black front door. The communal entranceway is fantastic with high ceilings and an ornate cast iron bannister which lines the carpeted stairs all the way to the top where this flat is situated. It’s quite a climb but totally worth it when you see the views that are afforded from this elevated position.Opposite the doorway to this flat there is another door which leads to the third bedroom/study. This would make a great home office as it is apart from the distractions of the main living space.
The first room you come to is the master bedroom - pure simple style; clean lines; stunning views and concertina folding doors which span the whole south facing wall opening up onto a decked balcony – what a view to wake up to.The living room next door follows the same style and again has concertina doors out onto the balcony.
The front of the room is on a higher level as it’s up three steps but the open plan design means you can enjoy the views from the kitchen too. Set at the back of the room it has high gloss cream units with solid wood worktops; integrated appliances and views north over the rooftops towards the South Downs National Park.
The second bedroom is at the back and is a good sized double with en-suite access to the bathroom which also has a door out onto the landing. This is an internal room but the white wall tiles and light floor tiles make it feel fresh and bright.This is a beautiful flat, so spacious and light and the views are truly exceptional.
Bear in mind
This flat is on the top floor and there is no lift. The third bedroom/home office is accessed from a separate door to the rest of the flat.
"This is an amazing flat, the views are stunning and constantly changing and there is so much space its perfect for entertaining."
