Why you’ll like it:
Named after the famous Dr Russell: the man responsible for the rise of sea-swimming in the city during the early 19th Century, this charming square is steeped in history. From the early years of the 19th Century, Brighton had become one of the most fashionable places to live; particularly for wealthy Londoners who flocked to live here for the medicinal benefits of a quick dip in the briny blue. Construction was complete in 1825 so the facades of these homes bear the ornate Regency, architectural features of the time with canopied balconies, Georgian windows and Corinthian pilasters to decorate their façades.
In complete contrast to this, this top floor apartment has been modernised to bring it into the 21st Century, but there is still potential for new buyers to add their own stamp on the place. It is a crisp and bright blank canvas with wood laminate flooring and buttermilk walls, and the living room looks out over the green of the square. There is space for relaxed seating and dining in here, and you can still converse with the cook as the kitchen is partially open to the room. This has been fitted with modern units and wooden worktops leaving space for your appliances, although the oven and hob are integrated.
Central to the flat, the bathroom is an internal room, but it is well-lit and ventilated with a white suite and a shower over the bath. Easily accessible, the double bedroom has a peaceful position to the rear of the building and has built in storage to maximise the floor space. Overall, this is a charming flat which is sure to be snapped up.
For such a highly sought-after area, this sweet apartment is excellent value.
“This apartment has been a fantastic property to let as tenants find the location ideal.”
