Why you’ll like it:
With pride of place on the first floor, this apartment enjoys the highest ceilings, and has three full height windows. The first floor was always intended for entertaining as the scale and proportions were impressive to guests, and while this flat is in need of a little TLC, the main features are in place for it to be brought back to its original grandeur.
The graciously tall townhouses of Waterloo Street were built in the early 19th Century as part of the Brunswick Town Estate, as Brighton had become one of the most popular places to live in the UK after the Prince Regent took up residence here in The Royal Pavilion. Now many of these grand buildings have been converted into spacious apartments, and they remain as fashionable today.
Attractive on the approach, this classic double-bay fronted house stands at five-storeys, and has an immaculate façade in cream with glossy black ironwork. A neat communal hallway and stairs lead the way to the first floor where your door is clearly numbered.
You are welcomed in to a spacious entrance hall where there are hooks to hang your coats, and you eye is immediately drawn to the bright and generous living room as the sun streams in from the east. Spanning the front of the house, this room follows the gentle curve of the building, and it is open plan to the kitchen making it a wonderfully sociable space; ideal for entertaining. You can simply have the windows open to bring some of the fresh coastal air in. There is ample space for larger pieces of furniture, and plenty of space for formal dining, where you can watch the world go by as you eat.
An arm of the kitchen separates it from the main living space, and while much of it is perfectly functional and modern, it feels a little unfinished – but nothing that cannot be fixed for very little. The gas hob and oven are already in place with an extractor fan above, and space has been left for your other appliances.
Peacefully positioned to the rear of the flat, the bedroom is a fine size double with a wealth of original features, and with a westerly orientation, a warm light fills the room during the afternoon and early evening. Easily accessible, the bathroom has a contemporary feel with a glass conical hand basin, and has a generous curved bath with a shower above it.
This is a great opportunity to buy a slice of the city’s history in one of the most sought after locations, so it is sure to be snapped up.
“It has been a joy living here with the city’s delights all around you. You can eat your way around the globe on Western Road, and the theatre is an easy walk. Brunswick Town has a unique energy which we will really miss.”
