Why you’ll like it:
Clifton Hill remains one of the most prestigious addresses in the city: characterised by some stunning examples of Regency and Victorian architecture as it sits atop the hill looking down to the sea; within easy walking distance of the city and all its delights. For somewhere so central, it is wonderfully peaceful, as it is nicely tucked away off the beaten track, between Seven Dials and Western Road.
This apartment holds the prime position on the first floor of a townhouse close to the top of the hill, so it has the highest ceilings in the building and enjoys private use of the full width, cast-iron balcony accessible from the living room. The current owner has renovated throughout, using only the finest materials and workmanship, and it is clear they have a refined eye for colour and current interior trends.
You enter first into a sweet hallway, but your eye is immediately drawn to the incredible open plan living space to the right. In here the ceiling soars and the easterly wall feels almost entirely glazed with full height bay windows opening to the balcony. While the palette, fixtures and materials use in here are modern, they have been blended perfectly with the period features, and there is a vast amount of space for formal dining, entertaining and relaxed seating. An open fire warms the room perfectly during winter, or alternatively there are vintage style radiators too, then as the weather warms, you can open the windows to allow the cool coastal breeze to flow through.
To the right, a Mid-Century style, timber topped breakfast bar, defines the kitchen area which also steps up from the living room with slate flooring and work tops to complement. Above these there are open shelves with an industrial feel, and below, the units gleam in grey gloss, and have been fitted with some integrated appliances while space has been left for your washing machine and tall fridge freezer.
Sitting centrally to the flat, the bathroom is classic in white with a shower over the bath, and it is easily accessible from the bedroom which is peacefully positioned to the rear of the building. This looks out over neighbouring gardens, and with a westerly aspect, a warming light filters in through the afternoon and early evening. Modern decoration again meets original period detail, and useful wardrobes have been built-in to the alcoves to maximise the floor space further.

Agent’s thoughts:
This is a really beautiful renovation which celebrates the natural character of the building which bringing it into the 21st Century.
