Grade I listed Sussex Square is one of the finest Regency developments within the UK- and is one of only two in our coastal city which have private gardens for the residents. A prime address, although just minutes from the historic cultural heart of the city, returning past the manicured grounds it feels a world away – and you definitely leave any noise behind in this quiet haven on the lower floor of a magnificent building. Built in an age reliant on natural light there is plenty of it and inside has roared into the 21st century with inspired design and ingenious use of colour.

With a leafy, gated entrance shared by only one other apartment, inside the sensor lit communal hall is steeped in history with original flagstones underfoot and the door to this apartment opens to a stunning, arched hallway running the full depth of the home with intriguing glimpses of the courtyard at the back. Attractive oak flooring continues through into a living/dining room of classic beauty where bookcases line the walls and two broad windows in the east wall have their original shutters. Light and airy by day, at night there is a choice of ambient lighting. There is ample floorspace for work, rest or play and in the far wall, a hatch frames a view to the kitchen, making it sociable but not dominant.

With space for an informal table by the window to the front courtyard, the stylish kitchen is also practical with a thoughtful layout and a mix of wood and glass units providing lots of storage as well as user friendly surfaces. A Baumatic multi fuel oven is integrated for you, there is plumbing for a washing machine and the tall cupboard in the corner conceals power and plumbing for utility machines.

A central passageway runs behind the living room and it is here, tucked peacefully away at the back, that you find the two bedrooms both of which are completely private as they look over the rear courtyard. The guest room is spacious and inviting with simple decoration and just across the main hall, the modern bathroom has plumbing for a shower above the bath and the hand basin is set into a custom made unit with a deep shelf.

Quiet and comfortable, the principal bedroom is a very generous size with a large window bringing the outside in, cheerful paintwork on the fitted wardrobe and a period fireplace to enjoy. Hidden behind a wall of glass bricks, the en suite shower room is chic and ready for your move.
Outside, at the front there is space for a table and chairs for breakfast in the sun, and at the back, the L shaped west courtyard is ideal for an al fresco living with two arched caverns providing space for dining as well as for a swing – or swing seat- and there’s a sunny spot in the corner for bathing in the afternoon sunshine, although don’t forget that you will also have access to 7.5 acres of Grade II listed, manicured gardens and a tunnel to the beach for a reasonable annual charge…..

Agent's Thoughts

“In a prime but quiet location within an iconic Regency square leading to the beach this spacious apartment would suit professionals who work in the city or investors as it is only a 7 minute walk to the County Hospital – 4 by bus – with major employers, the station to Gatwick and London and the cultural heart of the city within a 10 minute radius by bus or cab.”

Owner's Secret

“The square is beautiful, and we have enjoyed the balance between being sociable in the gardens but also being able to entertain privately in the courtyard at home- whatever the weather. We love the light and easy flow of the apartment which has plenty of space both inside and out, and we and our family have enjoyed spending time in this fabulous historic setting in a vibrant seaside city where there is so much to do! Local amenities include a High Street and our favourite café and restaurant Marmalade and bistro bar Busby & Wilds around the corner, and the nearby park leads to the Downs.”

Where It Is

In one of Brighton’s most glamorous locations within walking distance of the Marina with its cosmopolitan waterfront restaurants, health club, shops and cinemas, this beautiful apartment has use of 7.5 acres of Grade II listed gardens which have a tunnel to the beach said to have inspired the rabbit hole in Lewis Carrol’s ‘Alice through the Looking Glass’. For the exclusive use of the residents of the Kemptown Estate they are not only private and secure, but also a social focal point of a vibrant and inclusive community. A fifteen minute walk past the County Hospital and award winning Brighton College takes you to the heart of Kemptown with its fashionable al fresco lifestyle, patisseries, bars and restaurants, whilst a scenic 20-25 minute seafront stroll – or 7 minute cab ride- takes you to the picturesque cultural heart of our legendry coastal resort.
