This glorious Victorian villa was built in the 1840s, when Brighton was in full swing as the place to live for the fashionable and wealthy wishing to reap the benefits of the sea air and bathing. Now many of these grand buildings have been converted into spacious apartments, but they are remain as sought after today.

Dual aspect, this apartment spans the depth of the building on the first (top) floor of an attractive Victorian villa in Powis Grove. It is set back from the road behind a neat front garden with a classically tiled path leading to the communal door. Once inside, the communal ways are also tiled and the stairwell is abundant with period features, creating a welcoming space to come home to.

This apartment is clearly numbered on the first floor where you step first into a vestibule then into the sunny living room and dining room to the right. This is a generous space with tall sash windows framing views of the decorative period homes opposite while bringing in plenty of natural light. Wood laminate flooring runs through the apartment for continuity and the ceilings are high. There is ample space for relaxed seating and formal dining within the deep bay, so you can watch the world go by as you dine. The kitchen is also easily accessible, and while it is a bijou space, it is nicely separate and has been well designed with storage and space for freestanding appliances.

Moving through the apartment, there are two double bedrooms; one has been recently redecorated and has far reaching views over the local landscape in the south. Rising up above the historic roofline is the i360 reminding you just how close to the coast you are here. To the front, the master bedroom is large with space for freestanding wardrobes alongside built-in cabinetry which maximises the floor space further, and the period features are evident in here with a sweet arched window and a Victorian fireplace.
Above the small bedroom there is decent storage space accessible via a folding ladder that pulls down. There is also another loft space accessible above the landing just outside the flat with another folding ladder that pulls down.

Easily accessible for both, the bathroom is freshly tiled in pastel dark green with a full bath suite and an electric shower over it, so you can guarantee hot water at any time of day.

Owner's Secret

“This area has a certain air of exclusivity, and it is wonderfully quiet for such a central location. With the station on your doorstep, the commute to London is easy, and you can access the beach and the shops in minutes on foot. It is an amazing flat, so I am sad to let it go.”

Where It Is

This generous flat is situated in a popular area with lots of local shops and the beach on your doorstep. The city centre shopping districts and parks are also within easy reach, and this house also offers easy access to Brighton Station which has direct and fast links to the airports and London.
