Rock Street BN2

<b> <u> ** GUIDE PRICE £425,000 - £450,000** </b> </u> Formed from the upper floors of a substantial Victorian townhouse in Kemp Town, this maisonette also enjoys its own street entrance and is perfectly located for the beach, the city and the RSC Hospital. It has three large double bedrooms and a generous reception room, and while it is very spacious as it stands, it has the potential for reconfiguration and modernisation - including the possibility for a roof terrace, and the shop/office below is available by separate negotiation which has significant development potential. The Lanes and theatres of the city are just five-minutes away by cab; the transport links are excellent, and the local schools are highly sought after, so this bright and airy apartment will interest families, professional sharers and investors alike.

Why you'll like it...

With high ceilings, generous proportions and a wealth of period features, this upper maisonette already has many appealing qualities. The peaceful, yet central, location on the eastern edge of Kemp Town will also attract interest, as will its potential for further development. It sits within a Victorian townhouse with a commercial premises on the ground floor, so it has its own street entrance and is the only residential dwelling in the building. The front door opens to a long hallway with space to hang coats, and an internal stairway leads to the main body of the apartment; adding to the sense of space within. With plenty of scope for modernisation, the galley kitchen sits to the rear of the property with an integrated electric oven and hob and space for a washing machine. It is a fairly bijou space for a property of this size, so it may be an idea to move the kitchen into the front room creating an open plan living space while adding a fourth bedroom in its place – certainly food for thought. Passing a separate WC – so useful in any shared space, you come to bedroom three along the first-floor landing. In here, the proportions become apparent as the ceiling is high and natural light streams in from the south via a tall sash window. Fresh white walls and varnished wood flooring flow throughout the property for continuity, and period fireplaces can be found in each of the principal rooms. Spanning the front of the building, the living room is incredibly spacious and light with ample space to dine, relax and entertain. The scale of the room would allow for an open plan kitchen if desired, without compromising on space, and from the deep bay window, the view is open looking up St. Marks Street. A further flight of stairs rises up through a double height stairwell to the second floor where there are two bathrooms (one shower room) to the rear of the building – both classic in white and ideal for sharers. The master bedroom and bedroom two mirror the rooms below them in size, shape and style, so this maisonette feels more like a house than an apartment. The light up here is incredible with far reaching views across the urban landscape to the south from the rear bedroom, and there is potential to extend further into the loft space if desired. Agent’s thoughts: This is a unique property which is both ready to move into and brimming with potential for further improvements. For this reason, it will appeal to a large demographic, so call today for a viewing. what the owner says: “There is a vibrant energy within Kemp Town and a real sense of community which is unique within the city.

Owner's secret...

“There is a vibrant energy within Kemp Town and a real sense of community which is unique within the city. With the beach on your doorstep you don’t miss having any outside space of your own, and the apartment offers a great entertaining space too.”

Agent's thoughts...

Brighton is a cosmopolitan coastal resort famous for its history and flamboyant Royal Pavilion as well as its beaches, Pier and glamorous Marina. Known for its festivals celebrating the arts and relaxed, café culture there are countless shops, restaurants and bars to explore along the seafront, in the characterful Georgian Lanes or in the fashionable central shopping districts and all are easy to reach from this Grade II listed home. The beach is opposite, and it is just a stroll from the fashionable Kemp Town Village which hosts the Hospital and good schools including The Steiner and the award winning Brighton College. The law courts and Amex are within reach as is the Marina with its health club, cinema, restaurants and supermarket and the Downs, Queen’s Park and 72 par golf course are a ten-fifteen-minute walk. It is also close to several bus routes serving the city centre, coast and Brighton Station, with its fast links to Gatwick and London. For those who need to commute by car, the A23 and A27 are not far and permit zone H has no waiting list.
