The entrance to this Regency converted mansion block is to the side of the terrace on Chesham Place, a wide, quiet Grade II listed street just a few steps from Brighton's famous seafront promenade, just a short walk from the hustle and bustle of vibrant Kemp Town village. Smart, black and white chequered tiles lead up to a grand Corinthian columned porch and handsome black door to a very well-kept communal hallway with a passenger lift.
The Grade II listed three double bedroom apartment occupies the 'piano nobile' of what would have been a grand Regency house, obvious in this apartment by virtue of the five large floor-to-ceiling double glazed sash windows, in the stunning reception room, three of which lead out to the balcony taking in the beautiful panoramic view. The exceptional reception room with wood flooring is dual aspect with a further two floor-to-ceiling sash windows making the most of the far-reaching view to the east and enjoys uninterrupted sea views to the south, all of these windows with the fantastically high ceilings create a voluminous light and bright space with a certain 'wow' factor leaving a lasting impression.
Tucked away off the reception room is the kitchen refurbished with white metro inspired tiles and grey grout, it is off set by the grey worktop, white cabinets with integrated fridge and washing machine. For those that would want the property as a full-time home or are keen cooks may aspire a larger kitchen which could easily be added and created along the back wall in the lounge and the current kitchen made into a utility space.
This apartment is magnificent, in that it is double fronted so the sophisticated master bedroom suite offers mirrors the size of the fabulous lounge so you wake up to an incredible view. This stunning room with double built-in wardrobes also enjoys the high ceilings and three sash windows out to a further curved balcony with sparkling sea views. Down a few stairs, an en-suite is tucked away with a modern bathroom, ideal for soaking in on an evening, which has been recently refitted, tiled in white and an accent grey boarder.
Back on the landing, along the soft grey carpeted hallway, is the third bedroom next to a shower room with a fitted white suite with WC, pedestal sink and sliding glass door to the shower cubicle. The second bedroom with two sash windows to the rear of the property is up a small flight of stairs past a galleried landing that overlooks the hallway below, a door that leads out to the common way ideal for the occupier to have their own independence, this level also enjoys the benefit of an en-suite bathroom, off the bedroom. All the bedrooms have newly laid soft grey carpet of good quality making the room cosy under-foot.
The communal hallway is clean and bright with lights which automatically come on as you pass and the passenger lift is on the right as you come into the buildings entrance. Overall, this apartment has undergone significant updating and redecoration giving a lovely fresh finish, ready for someone to just move their furniture into. Being sold chain free, this will be an easy purchase for the new owner. The on-street parking in this area is Zone H and currently at time of print there is no waiting list to attain one of these permits.
