Arundel Terrace BN2

High ceilings, impeccable interior design and uninterrupted sea views come together in this beautiful Regency apartment. It is formed from the second floor of a listed townhouse on Kemp Town’s seafront, so it sits on some of the most prized land in the country. Having been fully renovated to exacting standards, it is ready to move straight into, and sitting on the eastern wing of Lewis Crescent, it enjoys exclusive residents’ use of the manicured garden enclosures. It is also just a short walk from the relaxed café culture of Kemp Town Village where you’ll find boutique shops, artisan eateries and a warm welcome. The Lanes and theatres of the city are just five-minutes away by cab, and the local schools are highly sought after, so this sunny apartment will interest families, home seekers, weekenders and investors alike.

Why you'll like it...

The stunning Regency terraces of Arundel Terrace are Grade I Listed and are integral to Brighton and Hove’s unique identity as a cosmopolitan city of style and taste. They were designed and built between 1824 and 1827 by eminent architects Charles Busby and Amon Wilds as luxury homes to echo the Nash developments in the capital. While most have been converted into sizable apartments such as this one, they continue to attract people from far and wide – almost 200 years later – with their sea views, generous proportions and striking period features. Recently redecorated, the communal ways are smart with gloriously high ceilings and many period features including stained-glass windows. Lights guide you up to the second floor where your door is clearly numbered, and once inside, it is immediately clear the current owner has a refined eye for colour and interior design. Every period feature has been retained and restored and direct sea views and skyscapes fill the main reception and master bedroom. A stunning Farrow & Ball palette has been used throughout to pick out certain features such as sash windows and sills, and all modern additions are in keeping with the character of the property. Natural light streams into the living room via two shuttered sash windows, from which you can also see the grand Corinthian pillar tops adorning the exterior. A Louis XVI style period fireplace takes centre stage, and there is ample space for formal dining, relaxed seating and entertaining. The adjoining kitchen is nicely separate but conveniently accessible via double timber doors on the rear wall. The ceiling remains high in here, so it has been well-designed to maximise the space using open shelving for crockery and glassware, and the appliances are freestanding. There are oak topped units – which are also freestanding along one side but will stay, and a useful breakfast bar is in place for informal occasions. A rear door brings some cool breeze into the flat during summer and leads out to the fire escape which can be used as a balcony – looking out over the local, urban landscape. Sharing the same sunny aspect and ever-changing views as the living room, the master bedroom is another generous room with a wall of built-in wardrobes. Bedroom two is only slightly smaller and peacefully positioned to the rear of the building, while both have easy access to the bathroom across the hall. The classic white bath suite pairs beautifully with Blue Black walls and window frames, and the window is again shuttered to ensure complete privacy. Agent’s thoughts: This beautiful apartment is impressive from the moment you enter and is steeped in the city’s rich history. The views are incredible, so it really needs to be seen to be admired. what the owner says: “Not only is Kemp Town undoubtedly the best place to live in the city – for many reasons, but the flat is such a lovely space to inhabit. The views change every day, so they never tire, and it’s incredibly peaceful for somewhere so central making it ideal when working from home. It’s a great space for entertaining too, so it will be sad to leave.” what’s around you: Shops: Kemp Town Village 2 minutes Station: Brighton mainline 15 minutes by bus Seafront or park: Seafront is opposite, Queen’s Park 10-minute walk closest schools: Primary: Queen’s Park Primary Secondary: Varndean or Dorothy Stringer, Cardinal Newman RC Private: Brighton College, Brighton Prep., Montessori

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’s 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, cinemas, restaurants and supermarket and the Downs, Queen’s Park and 72 par golf course are a ten-fifteen-minute walk. It’s 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.
