Marine Gate BN2

Uninterrupted sea views and skyscapes fill this beautifully renovated two-bedroom apartment – benefitting from being leasehold and share of freehold - found on the ground floor of Brighton’s iconic development: Marine Gate. Built in 1939 with luxury and comfort in mind, these apartments have been expertly maintained and have retained an air of exclusivity over the years. There is a full-time concierge, maintenance team, on-site non-allocated parking, plus centralised heating and hot water, and this apartment is one of only two which have direct access to the manicured communal gardens facing south. Set well back from the main road, this attractive Deco building looks out over the cosmopolitan Marina which has waterfront restaurants, cinemas, a casino, health club and a supermarket which delivers. There are friendly local shops and cafés in Kemp Town Village to enjoy, great transport links and the cultural heart of the city is just five minutes along the coast by bus or cab.

Why you'll like it...

Built in 1939 as an upmarket development, Marine Gate is a striking south coast landmark designed by Messrs Wimpens, Simpson and Guture. This apartment holds a prime position on the south easterly wing with direct access to a beautiful front garden and enjoys exquisite views across Brighton Marina to the everchanging sea and skyscapes beyond. With two double bedrooms, two bathrooms and the generous proportions that purpose-built apartments bring, it is a luxury home which has undergone complete renovation in recent years. Natural light streams in and the internal decoration is fresh and modern using a contemporary palette and materials so you can move straight in with ease. Brilliantly designed, these apartments are well-insulated for sound and heat which ensures they are peaceful from within. With a full-time concierge on hand 24/7, they also feel wonderfully secure for permanent residents or to just lock-up-and-leave, making them ideal second homes by the sea. You approach up a sweeping front drive with parking to a quiet and stylish communal hall, and this apartment is easily accessible along the corridor to the right. Once inside it is immediately clear this is a well-maintained and spacious property with a wide and welcoming entrance hall to greet you. From here there are deep storage cupboards for household items, shoes and coats, which include space and plumbing for a washing machine. Ahead, the elegant living room has ample space for formal dining and relaxation as glorious sea, sunshine and lush garden views stream through generous, double glazed windows on the south and westerly walls. The rear wall has been enhanced using split-face slate for Mid-Century style and appeal, and to the front, double doors lead out to the garden. From the patio area, a large area of lawn is bordered by an array of shrubs, which form a screen from the seafront road without obscuring the view. Across the hall, the streamlined kitchen has high-gloss, handle-free units in cream paired with grey composite stone worktops. Within these the fridge freezer, dishwasher, dual ovens and induction hob have been integrated. With the same contemporary, high-level finish, the bathroom is lined with ceramic stone tiling and has a rainfall shower over the bath while a porthole window acknowledges the architectural era of the building. Bedroom two sits conveniently next door and is a cool and calming double room sitting to the rear of the property. A wonderful size, the master bedroom is another elegant room enjoying sea views. Even with a king size bed and several pieces of bedroom furniture, the floor space is not compromised, and the en suite follows the same chic style of the main bathroom but with a double width shower. Agent's thoughts: “The yearly maintenance charge includes a full-time maintenance manager, concierge, refuse collection, gardeners, hot water and seasonal background heating provided by the gas fired boiler plant, and this apartment comes with a Share of the Freehold which will make it very appealing.” Owner’s secret: “It was the space and the security which attracted me to live here initially, and it has lived up to my expectations. The building is really well managed with a wonderful mix of residents which gives it a sense of community. The bus stops outside to take you into the city in five or ten minutes, and there is plenty to do within walking distance. The undercliff pass takes you alongside some of Brighton’s quieter beaches to the cafes at Ovingdean and Rottingdean, or Kemp Town Village with its gastropubs and artisan shops is just a few minutes west. I’m moving to live closer to family, but it has been a real pleasure living here.” What’s around you Shops: Local 2 minutes, Georgian Lanes a 5- minute cab ride Train Station: Mainline about 15 minutes by bus Seafront or Park: Seafront opposite, golf club and park 5- minute walk Closest schools: Primary: St Mark’s St Luke’s Secondary: Varndean or Dorothy Stringer, Cardinal Newman RC Private: Brighton College, Brighton Waldorf School, Brighton & Hove High, Roedean

Agent's thoughts...

In one of Brighton’s most glamorous seafront locations overlooking the Marina with its world class shops, restaurants, health club and cinemas this apartment, suitable as a full- time home or weekend retreat is also within walking distance of the Brighton Golf Club. A few minutes stroll takes you through the bohemian Kemp Town Village with its eclectic mix of patisseries, bars and restaurants, the theatres of Brighton are within easy reach and so are the Georgian Lanes and the Brighton Pavilion. Close to one of the top ten schools in the country and the County Hospital, buses stop immediately outside meaning that the coast, city centre and Brighton mainline station with its fast links to Gatwick and London are all accessible if you don’t want to use a car- although don’t forget that this apartment comes with on-site parking.
