Dorset Gardens BN2

Tucked away opposite a park with the Amex pedestrian plaza being constructed at one end of the street and the international shopping bars and restaurants of St James’ at the other, this big two bedroom apartment spans the whole depth of an historic building with its own private entrance and fabulous secret garden in Mediterranean style. Built in an age reliant on natural light, this quiet refuge on the lower floor has plenty of it with high ceilings, spacious rooms and broad windows, and both bedrooms open to a stylish patio which steps up to the glorious, sunny garden. Inside has a delicate balance which keeps the character of the building whilst providing rooms for a sociable lifestyle- as with the beach just one block away and world famous shopping and arts venues of the Lanes a short stroll, there will be plenty of friends wanting to visit.

Why you'll like it...

On a way one street, you leave the noise of the city behind as you step down to the private entrance behind gated railings. There is a deep under pavement cavern for stowage and a security gate gives peace of mind when you are away. Inside, a tiled lobby with painted panelling sets the stylish tone of the interior design, and discreet sophisticated storage introduces you to the attention to practical detail you will find throughout this apartment. Ahead, a spacious living room is light and airy with a broad west window reaching the ceiling – which is nice and high. A period style fireplace has traditional shelves and cabinets to one side, and there is plenty of newly carpeted floor space for elegant entertaining. Tucked away at the back of this substantial building, the master bedroom is a restful sanctuary with calm decoration, classic fitted storage and French doors to bring in garden views, which open to the secluded, continental style patio for morning coffee. Across the hall, the chic shower room will help to start your day well with a dual head shower, heated rail, shaving point and a lit mirror above the hand basin. At the far end of the long hallway, a skilfully designed kitchen will not date with a timeless pairing of white units with dark working surfaces, and both the gas oven and washing machine could stay, subject to circumstance and negotiation. With a south wall of glass, guests will love the second double bedroom which leads to the whitewashed patio with a Mediterranean influence. At the top of the steps a secret, scented sun trap is at the heart of the city. Facing east but open to the south, this leafy oasis is large enough for a dining area shaded by vines and an inviting area designed for al fresco entertaining surrounded by exotic planting. Agent says: “This spacious apartment is in a great, central position near the beach- and it would also be a secure lock up and leave.” Owner’s secret: “It is remarkably quiet inside although we are so central. We have appreciated the privacy and light spacious rooms, but the garden is the thing that we- and our friends- will miss the most.” What’s around you: Shops: Local 1 minute, Georgian Lanes a 5- minute walk Train Station: 10 minutes by bus Seafront or Park: Seafront less than 5 minutes, Park at end of street Closest schools: Primary: Queen’s Park Secondary: Varndean or Dorothy Stringer Private: Brighton College, Brighton Waldorf School, Roedean, Brighton & Hove High

Owner's secret...

“It is remarkably quiet inside although we are so central. We have appreciated the privacy and light spacious rooms, but the garden is the thing that we- and our friends- will miss the most.”

Agent's thoughts...

Ideal for commuters and busy city lovers this chic home is in a sought- after location within minutes of fashionable shopping, restaurants, clubs, cinemas, theatres- and the beach. Light and inviting, it is also conveniently located for the Law Courts, Police Station, Amex and the hospitals as well as parks and gardens which provide cool green spaces but also host events in the numerous city festivals. Close to the commercial districts and cultural heart of the city, the whole of Brighton and Hove is easy to reach on foot, by bus or by car and the station with its fast links to Gatwick and London is a 20 minute walk- or 5 by cab.
