With one of the finest addresses on the south coast, every room has a view as the apartment’s in the east wing of a prime corner property once home to the Earl of Bristol. A statuesque porch adorns the building and an impressive, marbled atrium opens to a sheltered garden and has a magnificent Regency staircase.

Light and inviting, inside the entrance hall’s so large that it’s used as a guest room so friends can come and go without disturbing the family- and there’s a private shower room on the broad horseshoe walkway above it. Bright and cheerful, this wide passage runs along what used to be the servants quarters and leads to an elegantly proportioned living room in which to relax or entertain. Twin windows frame the English Channel and manicured residents’ gardens, and a frequent visitor with a passion for photography says the sunrises are spectacular!

With a glittering landscape of its own the sociable kitchen/diner has a continental feel with sleek units, glamorous granite and steel surfaces and a central island where friends can sit to enjoy both your company and the luxury of evening sunshine. Ready for use the electric hob and oven are integrated for you, plumbing’s in place for a dishwasher and there’s also plumbing for a washing machine tucked away elsewhere.

Central to this floor, a spa- like bathroom has a contemporary free standing bath, a shower with dual heads and twin hand basins. Completely out of the public eye, the two quiet bedrooms have open views to a glimmer of sea and restful décor, and with only lower buildings beneath, they are particularly private so you can relax and recharge in peace.

The jewel in the crown of this unique home with period charm and chic modern tweaks, the roof terrace is ideal for entertaining in celebrity style and has astounding views which sweep from the surrounding Downs across the city to the sea – and you can see as far as the bay of Worthing for the sunsets.

Agent's Thoughts

This apartment has vast proportions with no small rooms. Also the roof terrace is accessed via a normal stair case and door rather than window or ladder which is quite rare for the square.

Owner's Secret

“We have enjoyed the quiet privacy and spectacular views of the sea inside, and loved entertaining on the roof terrace as well as in the welcoming open spaces of the gardens.”

Where It Is

7.5 acres of Grade I gardens are for the exclusive use of Kemptown Estate residents and are not only private and secure, but also a social focal point of a vibrant and inclusive community. Laid out in 1821 by Henry Phillips, the grounds are beautifully maintained at a reasonable cost shared by the keyholders and have a tunnel to the beach. Still an exceptionally glamorous and friendly location, it’s within walking distance of the Marina with its shops, restaurants, health club and cinemas and this fabulous penthouse is also close to the golf course and protected coastal walk. A 15 minute stroll past the Hospital and Brighton College takes you to Kemptown with its bohemian amenities; the famously chic Georgian Lanes and theatres are a five minute cab ride and close to several bus routes, Brighton station, serving Gatwick and London is easy to reach.
