Brunswick Terrace Share of Freehold

Formed from the second and third floors of a Brunswick townhouse on the seafront terrace, this Grade I listed, three-bedroom apartment has exceptional sea views from its principal rooms. Due to the scale of the building, its rooms are generously proportioned and with a southerly orientation to the front, they are filled with natural light. Spread over two floors, it feels more like a house than an apartment, and with three bedrooms it is ideal for families and professionals alike. While the décor is neutral and in fine condition, the scope for modernisation is huge, so there is potential for those with an eye for interiors to add value in such a sought-after location. From your front door, Hove Lawns and the promenade await, and just a few minutes up the hill sit the boutique shops, restaurants, cafes and bars of Western Road. In addition, there are two commuter stations and several popular schools also within easy walking distance, so this apartment would suit both families and professionals alike, wishing to live in comfort and luxury by the sea.

Why you'll like it...

Style: 2nd and 3rd floor apartment in a Regency townhouse with lift Bedrooms: 3 double; 1 en suite Living rooms: 1-2 spacious inc. kitchen/breakfast room Area: 1550 sq.ft. Outside: access to Brunswick Square garden enclosures and Hove Lawns Location: Brunswick Town Conservation Area Parking: Residents Permit Parking Zone M Why you’ll like it: The brainchild of eminent 19th Century architect Charles Busby; the houses of Brunswick Town are Grade I Listed and are integral to Brighton and Hove’s unique identity as a cosmopolitan city of style and taste. Built as a ‘mini-town’, he hoped to replicate the distinguished Nash developments in London with these regal homes, built for the fashionable and wealthy who were flocking to live by the coast, hoping to rub shoulders with royalty. The scale and beauty of these buildings is breath-taking, and while many have been converted into sizable apartments such as this, the residents here have ensured their conservation over the last two centuries. Today, the area is just as cool and vibrant, hosting Open Houses on the Artists’ Trail during the Brighton Festival, and organising summer parties and festivals on the lawns. There is a real sense of community with a mixture of families and professionals across all generations which gives Brunswick Town its unique character, and it is for these reasons it remains one of the most sought after addresses in the city. The townhouses of Brunswick Terrace are amongst the grandest with Corinthian pilasters and ornate cast iron balconies on their striking facades. You approach up the original tiled steps to the grand front door then into the communal hallway where the scale of the house becomes apparent. Due for renovation, the communal ways will soon be even more welcoming, and you can choose to take the lift or the stairs to your floor where your door is clearly numbered. Living room: Upon entry to the flat there is a deep cupboard for your coats and shoes and a cloakroom for guests, and opposite this is the main reception room spanning the front of the building. With soaring ceilings and a graceful arch to emulate the shape of Brighton’s Regency Pavilion, this room is already impressive, but it is the incredible coastal vista framed by three sash windows which takes your breath away. With a southerly aspect, these also bring in plenty of natural light and create an ever-changing triptych which never tires. To the east you can spy the city’s iconic landmarks; both old and new to include the Palace Pier, the remnants of the West Pier, and the newest viewing platform of them all: The i360, while to the west, the coast sweeps round to Shoreham. Again, redecoration using a contemporary palette would work well in here due to the scale of the space which could also be opened further with the removal of the arch as it is non-structural. This room has clearly defined areas for formal dining and relaxed seating, and unusually for a conversion, there are two built in cupboards to include a dresser for ornaments, and while many original features such as the cornicing, fire surrounds and picture rails have been removed, they could be reinstated. Kitchen: Looking out over the urban landscape to the rear of the building, the kitchen is another generous room with space for informal dining around a breakfast bar. The light wood units feel a little dated, but they remain in fine working order with some integrated and some free-standing appliances. It would be in here, however, where renovation would have the greatest impact, creating an impressive, sociable space linking through to the main reception room. While an open hatch is in place to allow the light to permeate through, the room could potentially be opened completely or divided using timber bi-fold doors to create an even more impressive entertaining space. Ground floor bedroom 3 and stairwell: Bedroom three sits peacefully to the rear of the building sharing the same vista as the kitchen, taking in the rooftops and chimney stacks of Regency Hove below vast skies. While this is the smaller room it is a lovely double and has built in wardrobes to maximise the floor space further. The ceilings are also high, and a sizable window brings in the light, so it feels deceptively spacious. While the entrance hall sits centrally to the apartment, it receives a huge amount of light from two large windows rising up the stairwell. This turns as you climb up to the third-floor landing, and the views only improve the further up you go. Bedroom two and bathroom: Sharing the same neutral décor and city views over Clifton Hill to the rear of the building, bedroom two is another tranquil space, mirroring the size and shape of the kitchen below it. It also has built in wardrobes, and while it is not en suite, it has easy access to the main bathroom. This is simply designed with a white suite and wall tiles and a shower over the bath. Again, this is a room which could benefit from modernisation which would certainly add value in a home of this calibre. Master bedroom suite: Another grand room, the master bedroom has a wall of built-in wardrobes and enjoys views of the incredible sea and skyscapes which are a joy to wake to at any time of year. You can watch the world trundle by along the promenade which is lovely even on blustery winter days, and with the windows open, you can allow the cool coastal breeze in during summer. Even with larger pieces of bedroom furniture, this room still feels incredibly spacious, and it benefits from an en suite bathroom which is ripe for renovation as it has ample space for another full bath and shower suite, or you could add a spacious wet-room style shower perhaps? Agent’s thoughts: This is a fantastic apartment which has the potential to be exceptional. Its proportions and views will attract developers and home owners alike. Owner’s secret: “We were immediately taken by the space and the natural light which make this Regency apartment unique. The sea and skyscapes are incredible as they change with the seasons forming a lovely backdrop to the south facing rooms, while the city landscape to the rear is also hugely attractive. It certainly feels very grand living here, and not only is this the perfect apartment for entertaining friends and family, you also have so much to do nearby.” Where it is: Shops: Local 3 min walk, city centre 8 min walk Train Station: Brighton and Hove Stations 15 min walk each Seafront or Park: communal garden enclosures, Hove Lawns and Beach opposite Closest Schools: Primary: Brunswick Primary School, Middle Street Primary School Secondary: Hove Park, Blatchington Mill, Cardinal Newman RC Private: Brighton College

Agent's thoughts...

This generous apartment is beautifully situated in a popular area with lots of local shops and the beach on your doorstep. The city centre shopping districts and parks are also within easy reach, and it also offers easy access to Brighton and Hove Stations which have direct and fast links to the airports and London.
