Why you'll like it...

Amongst the finest Regency developments within the UK, Chichester Terrace is one of the most desirable addresses on the sunny Sussex coast. Outside, this magnificent building impresses with its sweeping curves and grand proportions and opposite the lush acres of enclosures, this home has its own gated entrance down atmospheric stone steps to a welcoming courtyard with discreet caverns, one of which is deep enough for bikes. With the wow factor as soon as you open the front door, the kitchen, which is large enough for dining, has retained the original arched ceiling, ingeniously highlighted by exposing the intricate brick work. Simple but beautifully planned around a central electric hob, oven and hood this classic kitchen won’t date, and plumbing is already in place for a machine. The tall arches continue in the comfortable guest room tucked quietly away at the back, with views of a pretty courtyard making it both light and inviting, and the bathroom nearby is tasteful with a Triton Ivory above the bath and plenty of storage. Running along the curved front of this substantial building, a living room of understated elegance is full of sunlight as the two tall windows with their original shutters stretch to the ceiling – which is high. Smart shelves are to each side of a period style fireplace and a hidden walk in storeroom keeps the space fuss free. Upstairs, the crowning glory of this exceptional home is the gently curving master bedroom where glorious, ever changing views over the gardens to the sea can be enjoyed even from bed. Soaring high above your head, the ceiling is decorated by traditional borders and the calm decoration adds to the restful feel. Agent's thoughts: Brighton is famous for its stately Regency developments, and this is arguably the finest of only two which have private gardens for the residents. Owner’s secret: “We love Regency architecture and still get a thrill when we walk along the seafront and see our terrace and Lewes Crescent. The gardens are beautiful all year round, and we’ve made the most of them and our own peaceful, private courtyard retreat.” What’s around you: Shops: Local 3 minutes, Georgian Lanes a 15- minute walk Train Station: 3 minute walk Seafront or Park: The beach is reached through the tunnel in the gardens opposite Closest schools: Primary: St Mark’s, Queen’s Park Secondary: Varndean or Dorothy Stringer Private: Brighton College, Brighton Waldorf School, Roedean, Brighton & Hove High

“We love Regency architecture and still get a thrill when we walk along the seafront and see our terrace and Lewes Crescent. The gardens are beautiful all year round, and we’ve made the most of them and our own peaceful, private courtyard retreat.”

Agent's thoughts...

In one of Brighton’s most glamorous locations within walking distance of the Marina with its cosmopolitan waterfront restaurants, health club, shops and cinemas, this spacious maisonette has use of 7.5 acres of Grade II listed gardens which have a tunnel to the beach said to have inspired the rabbit hole in Lewis Carrol’s ‘Alice through the Looking Glass’. For the exclusive use of the residents of the Kemptown Estate they are not only private and secure, but also a social focal point of a vibrant and inclusive community. A fifteen minute stroll passing the County Hospital and award winning Brighton College takes you to Kemptown Village with its fashionable mix of patisseries, bars and restaurants. The Georgian Lanes and theatres are a five minute cab ride and close to several bus routes, the city centre and Brighton station, serving Gatwick and London are easy to reach.
