Sussex Square BN2

This glorious, first floor balcony apartment in Kemp’s masterpiece Sussex Square spans the whole depth and width of not one, but two of these magnificent Grade I listed Regency mansions. Designed with Lewes Crescent to embrace the English Channel and central resident’s gardens to which you will have access, inside this beautiful two bedroom home has majestic proportions, views sweeping across manicured grounds to the sea and timeless elegance. Sensitive internal design has created an inviting, flowing layout with entertaining at its heart and all the main rooms, including the guest room and luxury master suite, open to the delicately wrought balcony which runs along the front of both buildings. Close to the cosmopolitan waterfront restaurants of the Marina, the international shopping, bistros and art venues of our famous coastal resort are also easy to reach on foot, by bus or by cab.

Why you'll like it...

One of Brighton’s finest addresses in an iconic seafront square designed by Busby and Wilds and built as ‘Belgravia by the Sea’ for Thomas Kemp in the 1820’s, this unique apartment is a rare find. Giant Corinthian columns and grand portico adorn the outside of this impressive building and inside, the hushed communal hall has precious period detail including a fine example of a Regency staircase to sweep you to the first floor and entrance to this fabulous apartment. Inside, the central hallway is broad and bright with a cupboard tucked away for coats and bags. The reception: Beautiful proportions combine with refined decoration to bring Regency Brighton to life in this reception of classical beauty, originally designed for impressive entertaining and restful to return to after a long day in the city. Triple French doors stretch from the thickly carpeted floor to the decorated ceiling – which soars to a stunning 3.93m overhead- and open to a broad balcony looking across the manicured gardens to the sea. With ample space to share, in the evening this room becomes a private sanctuary with a choice of lighting levels, and a handsome period fireplace has handmade cabinets to each side to house your treasures. The dining room and kitchen: Broad glass doors lead from the reception into an elegant, airy dining room where wide French doors opposite open to a secluded, west facing balcony which is not directly overlooked. Lined by hand crafted cupboards painted in Regency tradition, there is even a carving shelf beneath a charming mural, and embracing the historic era’s love of secret doors, two reveal the kitchen, at the very heart of this home. Beneath a trompe l’oiel skylight and also reached from the hallway, a stylish kitchen is skilfully planned with plenty of units providing ample storage and practical working surfaces. Traditional in style in keeping with its surrounds there is, however, nothing old fashioned about the electric hob and oven beneath a hood, a dishwasher is also integrated for you and there is space for a tall fridge freezer of your choice. The guest bedroom and master suite: Opening to the balcony, the gardens and the sea, guests will love this graceful room with restful dimensions, calm decoration and ingenious storage, and there is a discreet cloakroom tucked away across the hall. The jewel within the crown, the magnificent master suite spans the full depth of this substantial building with the focus firmly on luxury and the glory of the sea, framed by twin French doors so tall that you can even enjoy it even from bed. Warm colour gives this space an intimate feel and wardrobes provide all the clothes space you could dream of – and their fitting has been careful not to spoil the plaster work overhead. As the en suite is completely private, you can bathe in glory beneath a tranquil mural celebrating the cosmopolitan nature of our coastal resort and the twin hand basins are lit by a glamorous, film star mirror. Agent says: “This beautiful, double width apartment is the only one of its kind in this sought after Regency square.” Owner’s secret: “We have loved the quiet privacy and gracious rooms of the apartment, the friendly gardens and views of the sea. Designed in the 1820’s as Kemp’s vision of Belgravia by the Sea, it was intended to be a stylish home to bring friends to, and we have certainly enjoyed entertaining here at any time of year.” Where it is: Shops: 2 minutes, Marina 10 minute walk Train Station: Mainline 15-20 minutes by bus Seafront or Park: Seafront 2 minutes, Park 5 minutes on foot Closest Schools: Primary: St Mark’s, Queen’s Park Secondary: Varndean or Dorothy Stringer Private: Brighton College, Brighton Steiner, Roedean

Agent's thoughts...

Opposite the 6 landscaped hectares of gated enclosures with a tunnel to the beach – said to have inspired ‘Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland’ by Lewis Carroll- it is just a stroll to the vibrant Kemptown Village which hosts the hospital and good schools including the award- winning Brighton College. The Marina is a few minutes’ walk with a myriad of waterfront restaurants to choose from as well as cinemas, a health club and a glamorous casino. The Downs, a park and 72 par golf course are a few minutes away and bus routes serving the city and station, with its fast links to Gatwick and London are nearby. The world famous shopping and bistros of the historic Lanes and international arts venues of the city are 5 minutes by cab and for those who need to commute by car, the A23 and A27 are both readily accessible- and there is no waiting list for permit zone H.
