This luxurious penthouse, which is one of six apartments in this building, it is within one of the grandest of the seafront Regency mansions looking over the English Channel and is Grade II listed. Even the entrance is imposing, inside is one of the finest examples of a Regency staircase in Brighton, sweeping up beneath an enormous, vaulted roof light, and this private home is up on the top floor. As you enter the apartment you are greeted with a hallway directly in front is the lounge with large windows which really take in the sea views, even when sitting down. The windows are framed with original wooden shutters which with the feature fireplace makes for a cosy evening in.
Well designed, the kitchen/diner is just next door, however it is still sociable as there are wide doorways into the reception at both ends and it has its own stately window where the current owners have placed their dining table to make the most of the panoramic views. The streamlined kitchen has plenty of ivory units which are topped by cool white surfaces and the appliances, including a sleek gas hob, electric oven, fridge, and freezer are all integrated for you. As you would expect of a design of this quality, there is ample storage and there is no need to clutter the space as there is a separate utility room on the communal landing below.
Set quietly apart at the end of a sizeable hallway with yet more storage, the spacious guest bedroom is on the west side of the building for the gentle evening sunshine and has a chic cloakroom conveniently close by. The central staircase rises beneath a sky light and at the top, the master bedroom is particularly light and airy as it has windows in opposite walls. With restful proportions, the room is warmly decorated and shares a vaulted bathroom lined in marble with the third double bedroom, which shimmers in gold and has access to the fabulous large balcony spanning the front of the building, watching over the sparkling coastline and secured by a stone balustrade. The property also has access out onto a further roof space that offers views of the city.
This exceptional penthouse is within minutes of the sea and the fashionable Kemp Town Village with its Bohemian mix of cafes, shops and restaurants, is just behind. The Cosmopolitan Marina and the Theatres of Brighton are both within easy reach as are the Georgian Lanes and famous Brighton Pavilion. Close to one of the top independent schools in the country, the award winning Brighton College, this exceptional homes proximity to Brighton Station and the A23 with is excellent links to Gatwick and London make this a viable proposition for those needing to travel.
