In the perfect Brighton beachfront position, with uninterrupted sea views, sitting peacefully back from the road – this must be many people’s idea of a dream home.
Now up for sale and showcased on property website Rightmove, this level of Grade II Listed luxury does of course come at a price.
A sweeping drive sets the residency back away from the road, with parking for three cars, and two entrances – the lower entrance leading to a self-contained spacious one-bedroom apartment with courtyard, and the elegant broad marble steps leading to the main residence .
The impressive entrance hall with its detailed wood paneled walls is warm and welcoming with midnight blue painted stair treads and spindles, off set with a rich yellow stair runner and polished dark wood banister.
The two rooms to the left, with their high ceilings and two large sash windows with sea views, have been opened to create a superb entertaining space.
The bespoke fitted kitchen at the rear with solid wood larder cupboard provides excellent storage, all covered by a stunning Calacatta Gold Quartz worktop and back stand.
The renovated conservatory boasts Victorian Adam geometric 3D design floor tiles and a door out to the landscaped rear garden with its two terraces.
The terraces are ideal for alfresco dining, as the evening closes in, the redbrick wall is lit up to create an impressive architectural feature, softened by built up flower beds.
To the rear of the garden is a Tiger Turf Advantage Pro Astro, ideal for tennis, cricket and as a putting green. The garden, from the black painted railings to the rear wall spans an impressive 75ft.
Back inside, up the stairs on the half landing is a quiet and tranquil home office, with window overlooking the garden. A green porcelain sink with traditional brass mixer tap is mounted on Carrara marble surface with a cabinet, wine cooler and fridge, providing facilities, as well as a cloakroom with WC.
On up to the first floor, an opulent room with decorative cornicing and picture rails, ceiling roses with twin chandeliers and two new feature fireplaces with coordinating mirrors.
Three floor-to-ceiling sash windows lead out to the curved balcony, a spectacular spot to take in the panoramic sea views. This room is finished off with warm varnished stripped wood herring bone laid floor.
On the second floor a main suite has been created with en-suite facilities and dressing room. A jaw dropping room, with sea views, the main feature is the freestanding copper bath on the raised plinth under the window, where lazy soaks can be had whilst enjoying the sea views through shutter adorned sash windows.
As you rise to the third floor on the half landing is a family bathroom, with traditional fittings in keeping with the period style.
On up to the third floor are two bedrooms with sash windows, dressed with shutters, to the front enjoying the majestic seascape, or the rear, peaceful views over Kemp Town Village. The fourth floor virtually mirrors the third.
