Why you'll like it...

Style: Top floor Victorian maisonette Bedrooms: 1 double Living rooms: 1 living/dining room Area: 833sq.ft. Location: Preston Circus Parking: Resident permit zone J Why you’ll like it: Shaftesbury Road is surprisingly quiet for such a central location; just minutes from the bustling Preston Circus and the North Laine Shopping District. The area is characterised by attractive tree lined Victorian terraces, and this duplex apartment sits within a house on the corner, so it looks out to the south and the west. Upon entry, the unique character of the property becomes apparent. Every room has been designed with both form and function in mind and space has been maximised. Natural light streams in to the living room through a large picture window on the westerly wall, framing leafy views of the mature trees in the street. Dark wood floors complement fresh white walls, and there is ample space for relaxing and dining in here. The kitchen is partially open to the room with a southerly aspect and an open view along Shaftesbury Road. Well-designed for the space, it has an integrated washing machine, fridge, fan oven and induction hob, while space has been left for a freestanding slim-line dishwasher, so you can move straight in with relative ease. Before heading up to the bedroom, the bathroom is on the entrance floor, and is a beautiful space with Moroccan patterned floor tiles with textured-white brick wall tiles rising up within the wet-room shower. This has been fitted with a high-powered electric shower for constant pressure and hot water, and the pedestal, basin and towel rail are contemporary. Edged sisal carpet runner rises up through the double height stairwell which has a bespoke, handcrafted banister and wooden planters running parallel beside the stairs as an indoor garden. This additional space allows for coat hooks and built-in shelving for books or plants and creates the deceptively spacious feel this apartment has. Airy, light and stylish, the generous double bedroom has been built into the loft space, yet the scale of the building and vaulted ceilings ensure that headroom is not compromised. From the large Velux window on the westerly side, you are eye level with the gracious curved arches of Brighton’s Victorian viaduct, so you can watch the silent trains trundle across to Brighton Station from afar. This view also looks out across the roof tops and trees of the city below big open skies which are a joy to wake to. Again, this space has been cleverly designed with exposed beams and carpeted floors which run right into the eaves to open the space. Even with a king size bed and several pieces of bedroom furniture, it still feels spacious, and the exposed brick wall with industrial-style light fittings are on-trend. Agents thoughts: Stylish, unique and perfectly positioned for the city and the station, this apartment will not stay on the market for long. It is beautifully presented throughout so you can move straight in or let it out immediately with ease. Owner’s secret “This was our first home together, so we have really enjoyed making it our own. It is incredibly peaceful for the central location as you are elevated above the city, and the views never tire. Location wise; Preston Circus has been transformed over the last few years. There are now many lovely bars, cafes and restaurants, not to mention the Duke of York Cinema at the bottom of our road – and the North Laine shops are less than 10-minutes away. We adore our space, but we want another bedroom and a garden now, hence the move, but we are hoping to stay local.” Where it is: Shops: Local 1 minute, North Laine 10 min walk Train Station: Brighton Station 8 min walk Seafront or Park: The Level 4 min walk, the Seafront is a 15-20 min walk Closest Schools: Primary: Downs Infant and Junior Schools Secondary: Varndean or Dorothy Stringer, Cardinal Newman RC Private: Brighton College, Windlesham Prep

Agent's thoughts...

This attractive property is beautifully situated in a popular area with lots of local shops and green spaces. The city centre shopping districts and the beach are within easy reach, and this spacious apartment also offers easy access to the A27/A23 as well as two commuter train stations which have regular, fast links to the universities, airports and London.
