Spanning over 2000 square feet, this outstanding ‘wow’ apartment has two curved rooms facing the front, enjoying the sea views, making this home double the width of most of the seafront apartments we are offering for sale.
Overlooking the seafront, this grand building is set back from the road behind a pretty communal semi-circular garden and parking spaces. At the front of the building Corinthian columns add a mix of tradition in comparison to the modern glass balconies, which give the residents wonderful private outdoor spaces from which to enjoy the sea air and amazing view.
Inside, the apartment has been beautifully designed in two parts, with luxurious living and entertaining space at the front of this home, making the most of the sea views, and the double bedrooms tucked away in a separate “wing” at the back, ensuring both privacy and peace creating a sense of space. Period features, including high ceilings, fireplaces and decorative cornicing throughout in this large apartment, which spans the entire ground floor.
The hall ceiling is high above your head, and the burnished parquet floor invites you through a tall glass door to your right, which opens into an inner hall where the height and wooden floor continues throughout and into a magnificent reception room, which would have been two rooms originally, but can be separated with the part glazed French doors, so you can make the space more intimate should you prefer.
The current owners love the sea so much that they use the front portion of the room, as a bedroom, which works well and which has three floor to ceiling windows following the curve of the front, flooding the room with light and bringing in blissful views of the sea from the Marina to the Pier. On the left is an elegant tiled fireplace with delicately carved marble surround and a decorative original cornice is above both rooms. The rear portion of the room, used as a private sitting room, is generously proportioned and has large west facing windows looking over to Brighton Pier and a pillared fireplace to your left.
Opposite is a glamorous kitchen/diner which achieves a perfect balance between retaining the integrity of this period building whilst accommodating the needs of modern day living, and as you would expect an element of luxury. The bespoke kitchen is in fashionable tones of stone and wood with composite stone work surfaces and LED lighting beneath the units. All of the appliances are integrated and are top of the range, including a sleek NEFF electric induction hob and AEG microwave and oven thoughtfully placed in a tower.
The dining area is separated from the main kitchen by a raised breakfast bar, so an ideal entertaining space, and has an iridescent marble and gilt fireplace to the left, beautiful cornicing and a ceiling rose overhead, whilst ahead two graceful windows look across to the seafront and French doors open onto the private glass balcony.
Returning to the entrance hall, opposite the front door is a luxurious shower room, which also has plumbing for a washing machine and there is a door to your left opening into a private inner lobby. The master bedroom suite is to your right, which is a light and airy room, but its situation within the building also makes it extremely quiet and private. The walk in wardrobe is an L shape, with sophisticated hanging and shelving and the en suite is exceptionally large, with a contemporary white suite and walk in shower with a dual heads. The second double bedroom is along the west side, with lovely views of the pier, and also has a spacious walk in wardrobe and glamorous en suite bathroom. The flat is laid out in a way that is exceptionally versatile, should you want more reception space or would like more bedrooms.
Situated on the corner of a quiet one way street Crescent Place and set back behind the communal gardens back from Marine Parade. The vibrant village, where Brighton College is situated is just behind the building, where it's cafe culture and interesting antique, furniture shops makes it a great place to wonder around with various independent boutique shops it has a lovely village feel. Eating out is a treat in this area with various gastro pubs and restaurants, or walk into the Brighton Laines is just over a mile away. If you wanted to use public transport, buses regularly run along the seafront from Eastbourne to the east and Worthing to the west travelling through the city centre itself. For those that want to travel around the city by bicycle, this apartment has access to the communal bike store.
Brighton is a popular city for its culture, access to the arts and bohemian city steeped in history as well as its fantastic location making international travel very easy from Gatwick Airport which is just over 30 miles away and a direct train form Brighton takes less than 30 minutes and a direct train to London Victoria is just under an hour.
