Why you’ll love it:
Filled with natural light from the east, and with views of big, open skies to the front, this apartment feels a million miles from the city. Unlike the city’s other residential areas, however, it does not feel on the outskirts, as it is still a fantastic location for schools, stations, and transport links, and you can walk to the North Laine in just 20 minutes. There’s a vibrant art scene with several houses mapped on The Open House trail during the Brighton Festival, and there are often community events held in the park during the summer.
This apartment has pride of place on the top floor of a 1930s apartment building whose architectural style is in keeping with the neighbouring homes of the same period. It sits on the western side of the valley close to Fiveways, so the school-run and shops are easy to come by, and being built into the hillside, it has a raised front elevation which adds to its sense of privacy.
Being a low-rise building, there are just two flights of stairs to the top floor, and once inside, the apartment is immediately warm and welcoming. You enter in to a spacious lobby area where new fawn carpets flow into the living room and bedroom two which look out over the front of the building, enjoying the vista. Bedroom two is slightly smaller, but would still work well for sharers, and the living room has ample space for dining and relaxation.
To the rear of the property, the kitchen has modern units which remain in fine fettle and have been designed leaving space for your freestanding appliances. From here a door opens to a small balcony area which faces west to receive the last of the summer sunshine and is a great spot for some potted plants or a small kitchen garden if you choose.
Next door, the master bedroom shares the same décor and proportions of the living room, yet has peaceful views over neighbouring gardens, and the bathroom nearby has been newly fitted with a white bath suite and shower over, plus the wall tiles are on trend in monochrome metro brick.
Bear in Mind:
While the building does not have a lift, the views are well worth the short climb.
“For several years now, Hollingdean’s popularity has grown exponentially as more families move here from the city centre looking for homes with more space, surrounded by greenery, and with that illusive free parking! There is a palpable sense of community here and the location is great with Fiveways so close-by – it really does have every amenity you could wish for.”
