Sussex Square BN2

Acknowledged as one of the UK’s finest Regency developments and Grade I listed, Kemp’s symmetrical masterpiece of Sussex Square frames verdant gardens and a sparkling expanse of open sea. Adorned by columns and standing opposite the gated garden enclosures for the residents, this sophisticated one bedroom apartment has a private entrance with a courtyard looking west for the sun and caverns large enough for bikes-and a kayak. Stripped back to its Regency bones and sensitively restored with a subtle acknowledgement of its utilitarian history, this exceptional home’s skilful design will lift the spirit. You will enjoy the famous enclosures with a tunnel to the beach, and a stroll takes you to the cosmopolitan Marina or relaxed café culture of Kemptown. Ideal for professionals or investors the Hospital, Amex, station and international shopping, bistros and art venues of our legendary coastal resort are also easy to reach on foot, by bus or by cab.

Why you'll like it...

Conceived by Thomas Kemp, designed by Busby and Wilds and built by Cubitt for the rich and famous Grade I listed Sussex Square is one of the finest Regency developments within the UK- and is one of only two in our coastal city which have private gardens for the residents. Returning through the manicured grounds to which you will have access, you will feel a world away from the stresses of the city – and you certainly leave the noise behind in this serene sanctuary on the lower floor of a beautiful building. Inside has roared back to life with guidance from the expert heritage architect Martin Mcurdy, who has created a light and inviting home ideal for a 21st century lifestyle where ceilings are high and York stone replaces missing flagstones underfoot. Ingenious use of space by the front door allows for a cupboard for coats and bags and plumbing for a machine so kits can go straight into the wash, and along the broad hallway, the utilitarian essence of this floor, intended to ensure the smooth running of the upper house, is preserved in the handmade DeVol kitchen. Painted, shaker units have practical surfaces, the butlers sink has carefully sourced brass taps and whilst looking traditional, the Aga is in fact both electric and programmable. Floor to ceiling doors at the far end reveal the inner sanctum whilst to the right, a light and airy living room has graceful proportions and has embraced improvements made by other generations – as seen in the bakelite electric light switches and gleaming parquet floor. Tall windows line the western wall to bring in plenty of sunlight and the original pull up shutters – which are rare- have been lovingly restored. There is ample floor space to entertain in with scope for zoning, and the magnificent fireplace matches an original which was discovered in The Regency House, Regency Square. Peacefully tucked away at the back of the apartment, the large double bedroom looks across the lightwell and with windows to the central hall, it has flattering, soft light. A wall of wardrobes provides all the clothes space you could wish for and also conceals an MEV Spider ventilation system which was installed as a precaution but has never needed to be used. Next door, you can bathe in glory in a claw foot baignoir, or enjoy the drench head shower in Parisian style above it, and this atmospheric bathroom has high end Burlington fittings. At the far end of the central hallway, a door leads to the main building with a lift for furniture delivery whilst the middle staircase leads down to twin arched caverns, both so generous in size and well insulated that one is used as a comfortable media room and the other as a private space for guests to enjoy. Agent says: “Although described as lower ground, this apartment has access to plenty of natural light and has been beautifully restored-although we understand that there are even more caverns which have yet to be explored.” Owner’s secret “The Square has a lovely sense of community – every one says hello when you’re enjoying the garden and we have a summer fete in the enclosure opposite the apartment. We have enjoyed restoring this beautiful apartment and sharing it with friends who like to come for the theatres and Lanes, which are 5 minutes by cab.” What’s around you: Shops: Local 3 minutes, Georgian Lanes a 15- minute walk Train Station: 15 minutes by bus Seafront or Park: The beach is reached through a tunnel in the garden enclosures Closest schools: Primary: St Mark’s, Queen’s Park Secondary: Varndean or Dorothy Stringer Private: Brighton College, Brighton Waldorf School, Roedean, Brighton & Hove High

“The Square has a lovely sense of community – every one says hello when you’re enjoying the garden and we have a summer fete in the enclosure opposite the apartment. We have enjoyed restoring this beautiful apartment and sharing it with friends who like to come for the theatres and Lanes, which are 5 minutes by cab.”

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 light and spacious apartment faces east for the sun. There are local shops and a café culture to enjoy and a fifteen minute stroll passing the County Hospital and award winning Brighton College takes you to the historic streets of Kemptown with their bohemian mix of patisseries, bars and restaurants. The international shopping of the Georgian Lanes and vibrant arts venues including the Dome and Theatre Royal 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.
