A fine example of Mid-Century modern architecture; the Mandalay Court development has a clean and simple façade, and it stands well back from the road, looking out majestically over Withdean Park. This bright and spacious two-bedroom flat has easy access on the ground floor of the southern building, and it has a smart and neutral décor so you can move straight in with ease. It also has a peaceful balcony to the rear of the building and a private parking space, so it ticks several boxes. From here you are also just a short walk from Preston Park Station, and a two minute drive from the A23, so this flat would suit commuters and investors alike, and is sure to be popular with many.

Why you’ll like it:
Mandalay court is formed from two smart pale brick buildings, set well back from the road behind immaculate gardens and visitor parking. This flat resides on the ground floor, and is approached up a winding path, into a neat glazed lobby, from where an intercom entry system brings you through to the main communal hallway. Your door is clearly marked, and once inside, it is clear that this is a bright and well-maintained home.
Positioned to the rear of the building, this apartment is incredibly peaceful as its rooms look out over the leafy embankment of Preston Valley. The bedrooms are also located at one end of the corridor; away from the main living room, and with double glazed windows, you can always ensure a restful night’s sleep. Pale latte carpets flow ahead and into the master bedroom from the entrance hall, where there are built-in mirrored wardrobes which help to bounce the light around from the westerly window opposite. Bedrooms two is currently set up as a spacious home office, but it is a double, and would suit professional sharers.
These rooms share use of the modern bathroom which has both a bath and an electric shower over it, and a tall heated rail awaits your towels. Next door, the modern kitchen is conveniently positioned opposite the living and dining room. This has plenty of light wood modern units, leaving space for a tall fridge freezer, a cooker and a washing machine, but this could be reconfigured to allow for a dishwasher if so desired.
Perfectly generous, with defined areas for formal dining and relaxed seating, the living room is both homely and perfect for entertaining. During the warmer months, you can sit out on the balcony – which being on the ground floor feels more like a patio, where you can enjoy a drink and listen to the birds in the trees.
While the décor is immaculate, there remains some scope for modernisation if you choose, although it is perfect to move straight into, or let out immediately with ease.
Bear in mind:
It is possible to rent further parking spaces from other residents, as many of the neighbours do, but this needs to be discussed with the management company.
“It is so peaceful here. Being at the rear of the building and with quality double glazing, you cannot hear the road. The neighbours are also lovely, and a real mix of ages and professions. You feel safe and looked after here as there is a real sense of community.
