Ripe for development and beautifully proportioned, this Grade II Regency house looks over an exclusive garden square to the sea and has five storeys. To start you off, there’s a comfortable self-contained one bedroom apartment with a patio on the lower floor and a two bedroomed apartment on the ground floor, so you’ll have time to consider the options for the upper three floors which have a total of 6/7 big, bright rooms, a west facing balcony and a bathroom. Within walking distance of fashionable Kemptown Village which hosts Brighton College and the County Hospital, this is a sought after area from which you can also stroll to the cultural heart of the City and the station is easy to reach.

Light flows through this fabulous period house attributed to the glamorous partnership of Busby and Wilds and built for Thomas Attree between 1824-1826. Inside, the main hallway has beautiful period features including a fine example of a Regency staircase. The ground floor 2 bed apartment needs a little tlc but has all you need including a grand reception, a kitchen which has an electric hob and oven as well as plumbing for a machine, two quiet bedrooms and a bathroom with natural light.
Up past a bathroom, the first floor reception has a magnificent floor to ceiling bay which sweeps across the west wall and opens to an intricately wrought balcony with views over manicured gardens to the sea and glittering pier. There’s a handsome marble fireplace, a discreet kitchenette with an oven and fridge, and at the back, the first of the bedrooms is not overlooked. Upstairs two spacious rooms are used for storage and on the third floor of the house, which is subject to a closure order, you’ll see the bones of three large, sunny rooms- two with sea views- with timber beams, partly exposed bungaroosh and historic butterfly roof.
Private, peaceful and with its own patio, the lower ground apartment has an entrance from the square, and don’t forget that the whole house could have access to the gorgeous gated gardens opposite.
Within one of just six exclusive seafront garden squares in Brighton & Hove, whole houses are particularly hard to find. There is a sitting tenant on the ground floor who currently pays £120 p.w., but we are told that they may be willing to transfer to the one bedroom apartment on the lower floor.
what the owner says
“This location’s hard to beat as although the square is private and quiet, you’re in the city centre within minutes- and there’s a huge choice of local entertainment, too.”

Opposite the beach, this prestigious garden square is close to the famous Victorian lift which delivers you free of charge down to the sea for most of the year. The relaxed café culture of Kemp Town Village, which hosts the hospitals and Brighton College, is within a stroll and it has a great atmosphere with independent, specialist shops as well as a co-op, post office and chemist. The cosmopolitan Marina with its health club, cinemas and waterfront restaurants is also just a short walk. The cultural heart of the city’s about 5 minutes by taxi, Queen’s Park with tennis courts, playground and café and the Downs are moments away, and as Brighton Station serving Gatwick and London is easy to reach by car, cab or bus, when restored to its former glory this special property would suit commuters, families or locals of any age.
