With the English Channel glittering at the end of a terrace listed to preserve its classic beauty, this stately bow fronted beauty has an imposing entrance secured by answer phone so first impressions are good and inside, the communal hallway is hushed with this apartment found on the third floor at the top of a sweeping staircase.
Ahead, a broad landing is particularly inviting as it is beneath a high window and ahead, the first of the double bedrooms would be ideal for guests or a health or flight professional who may keep unsociable hours as they can come and go easily– and it is quiet at the back of this substantial building with plenty of floor space as well as a characterful fireplace and fitted shelving. Next door, the elegant bathroom is decorated in keeping with the age of the building and even the dual shower system above the eco bath are traditional in style, although there is nothing old fashioned about the discreet heated rail for towels.
A wide staircase steps up beside the front door and clever design has created a has a tiled storage area on the top of the entrance, so that should not be an issue here particularly as there are large cupboards too -and the second access to a second attic space is also found on this upper landing!
Ahead, the spacious reception offers a sophisticated space for entertaining in Regency style with a soaring ceiling, limed wood floor and an irreplaceable, original fireplace. Big windows line the curve of the east wall to bring in the sun and sea views and there is ample space to enjoy relaxing alone or with friends. Next door, the kitchen has a gentle curve and fireplace of its own, and the large window frames historic views and ensures it is bright and cheerful. Buttercup units are topped by blonde practical work surfaces, the impressive Filli Berlazoni range could stay subject to circumstance and negotiation, plumbing is in place for a machine and there is still room for a tall fridge freezer.
Completely private at the back, a romantic double bedroom is simple but stylish with a stripped floor, a ceiling high enough for a chandelier and a big window to bring in restful garden views. There is plenty of room even with a double bed in it and alcoves to each side of the period fireplace are perfect for storage, so it is ready to move into.
