Marine Drive BN2

Soaring above the English Channel with views of luxury yachts at harbour from the south facing balcony, this two bedroom apartment in Brighton’s iconic Marine Gate is seriously glamorous. Designed in 1939 for an exclusive lifestyle, this famous Art Deco building remains one of our city’s finest addresses and with a flawless interior, large landscaped grounds, rare garage and concierge this is an exceptional offering. Quiet but convenient with a local café culture to enjoy, a coastal path leads to the world class restaurants and amenities of the Marina. Useful transport links to the city and station are close by and the international shopping and restaurants of the Lanes are just five minutes by cab.

Why you'll like it...

In 1939 Messrs Wimpens, Simpson and Guture created homes to enhance a glamorous lifestyle on the Sussex coast and this immaculate apartment on the exclusive south side of this beautiful Deco duplex gives just that. Now with energy efficient windows and beautiful entrances surrounding a formal central garden, this fabulous icon is secured by both a telephone system as well as a concierge. Reached by lift, inside the apartment is hushed, spacious and cosmopolitan. Ahead, the sun filled reception embraces the sea with the south wall of glass framing magnificent views over manicured gardens and yachts of the Marina to sparkling open water. You can soak up the trans-Atlantic atmosphere either with friends on the balcony in summer or in winter, you can introduce guests to dramatic storms over the waves whilst relaxing inside enjoying the understated elegance and generous floorspace for zoning into defined areas. Tucked away next door, a classic galley kitchen continues the oceanic theme with glorious views of the Channel and clean lines. There are plenty of units and working surfaces, and it is party perfect with an integrated electric hob, extractor to keep things fragrant and fan oven. Plumbing is already in place for two machines, there’s space for a tall fridge freezer of your choice and a skilled touch has included a heated rail for towels. Deft interior design also provides a discreet cloakroom for visitors between these sociable rooms whilst opposite, an inner lobby allows for privacy in the two comfortable bedrooms, neither of which are overlooked. With open views over exotic communal gardens guests will love the peaceful double bedroom at the back of this grand building which most unusually has both ample fitted storage and chic en suite shower room. Also enjoying a vista of lush acres of gardens, the airy master bedroom is a tranquil idyll to come home to, shimmering in Holden paper and with a whole wall of wardrobes. By it, delicious Deco style is carefully retained in a ship- shape bathroom with a porthole window, a shower attachment above a traditional bath, lit mirrored cabinets and indulgent warming rail. Agent says: “These apartments are rare to the market, particularly those facing south- and plus a garage are even more scarce! The maintenance charge includes a host of services including heating, hot water, and concierge. An onsite team can usually deal with any emergency repairs.” Owner’s secret: “Designed around the sea views, the apartment has been a glamorous bolt hole and social hub as although we’re away from crowds we are by all the venues of the Marina and close to the city centre. We’ve enjoyed the friendly community here, and appreciated the peace of mind whilst we’re away.” 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 Private: Brighton College, Brighton Waldorf School, Roedean, Brighton & Hove High

Owner's secret...

“Designed around the sea views, the apartment has been a glamorous bolt hole and social hub as although we’re away from crowds we are by all the venues of the Marina and close to the city centre. We’ve enjoyed the friendly community here, and appreciated the peace of mind whilst we’re away.”

Agent's thoughts...

This glamorous seafront location overlooks the Marina with its world class shops, restaurants, health club and cinemas. Close to a golf club and 60 acre park with sports facilities which leads to the Sheepcote Nature Reserve, a few minutes stroll takes you through Kemptown which hosts the County Hospital and has a great choice of patisseries, bars and restaurants. The famous shopping and theatres of the Georgian Lanes are easy to reach and bus routes outside mean that the coast, city centre and Brighton station with its fast links to Gatwick and London are all accessible if you don’t want to use a car.
