Step into an elegant lifestyle within this beautiful Georgian house, a fantastic comfortable family home with the sea clearly visible from the front door. The recently painted white exterior is sharp against the black wrought iron railings and the balcony above. Currently providing three refined reception rooms and four bedrooms although the layout is clearly flexible within a house of this size.
In a great location, close to the beach and Kemp Town village also not far from Brighton College or the hospital. This has been a wonderful family home with the differing levels it has comfortably accommodated the children as they have came back from university. With the open plan kitchen diner providing space to entertain friends and family, as well as the large lounge on the floor above. The roof terrace with plenty of seating is also large enough to entertain in as well as offering a private courtyard. Inside, the designer has kept to the Georgian tradition and this is a house that oozes classic style.
The front door is raised off from the street offering the ground floor level more privacy. Inside is an unusually wide tiled entrance, having been extended in the 1830s, the house is wider than the others on the street. The hall opens up with the doors to the roof terrace up on the first floor allowing the morning light to flood in. To your left, is the open plan kitchen/diner, a classic room with wood flooring, sash window and window boxes, a lovely space to entertain with the kitchen and its range cooker to the rear of the room. The further sash window overlooks your courtyard. High ceilings provide this room with generous proportions and the curved bay allows you to view the sea from this room.
To the rear of the ground floor is bedroom number three, a peaceful room with two pretty panelled windows providing a dual aspect and is a perfect guest bedroom with built-in wardrobes offering plenty of storage space. On the bright first floor the entertaining continues, in fact this whole floor is dedicated to it, with the sitting room to the front and the curved bay sash which leads out to the west facing balcony, a delightful space to enjoy the evening sunshine and appreciate the sea view. The room transforms into a discrete and cosy haven when you draw the curtains and light the fire in its magnificent wrought iron surround.
Double doors lead to the reading room with built-in bookcases and sash windows that overlook the neighbours well-maintained gardens. It is a favourite place for my sellers to enjoy a peaceful moment whilst reading. To the side of the bookcases are well hidden built-in cupboards. As you go up a few stairs to the roof garden, you pass a guest WC, the roof garden has raised bed planters clad in wood and these provide lovely greenery to sit in whilst enjoying the company of friends and family. It's a sun trap and our seller has even hung a hammock to make the most of Brighton's lovely weather.
As we come back in the house, next to the sitting room is a bathroom that is all about the traditional pampering with a roll-top bath and sink. It is thought that some might want to move the study to this level and the bathroom next to the master bedroom onto the next floor, (STNC). On the second floor, the master bedroom to the front has a wall of west facing windows so the room is bathed in afternoon light. The picture window with its wood window sill is a lovely place to sit and watch the boats out at sea which glimmers at the bottom of your road. The built-in wardrobe provides storage, next door is a study or could be used as a lovely dressing room with further built-in wardrobes. A further double bedroom is to the rear with restful proportions and lovely rooftop views, finishes off this floor.
The lower ground floor has a large double bedroom with built-in shelving and hanging space either side of the chimney breast. The recently painted bright white wall reflects light back into this bright and airy space, helped by light wood flooring. The room next door is currently our sellers studio, a spacious room with large french doors opening to your private courtyard. To the rear is a modern shower room with slate grey tiles, a glass shower screen and a WC that is tucked away round the corner, past the modern sink. The spacious utility room is at the back, this could be a kitchen if one wanted to rent the apartment out. Access to this level is either through the main house or via the main entrance or there is a side access through a door with a restrictive head height.
This beautifully designed home is within minutes of the sea on a quiet one-way street in the heart of Kemp Town with its Bohemian mix of cafés, shops and restaurants. The Cosmopolitan Marina and the theatres of Brighton are both within easy reach, as are the Georgian Lanes and the Brighton Pavilion. Close to one of the top ten schools in the country Brighton College and the hospital as well as being within easy distance of the beach, the South Lanes, North Laine and Queens Park.Reference: 226552
