Chic and central, now is the time to buy this fabulous apartment on the prime southwest corner of a streamlined, 2015 block where the entrance is on a relatively quiet one way street with a small park, and which has the vibrant shops and bars of St James’s Street at one end and the new Amex pedestrian plaza under construction at the other. Built with comfort and security in mind, this sheltered block has a video entry system on each floor, all windows and doors are double glazed, solar panels pay for the sensor lit communal halls and inside a lift large enough for bikes and buggies awaits to whisk you to the second floor and the entrance to this apartment.

Inside, it is easy to shake off the stress of the day in a hushed hallway which has a large bike store by the front door. Ahead, the stunning living space spans the corner of the building, with walls almost filled by glass to frame the characterful Georgian setting and glimpse of the sea even when seated inside. Design led it invites company with enormous floorspace to play with and create defined areas for relaxing and dining, and party perfect, it opens to a south facing balcony for friends to spill out to. Facing west for the sunsets, a Juliett balcony brings in views which change with the seasons -not only of the tree lined boulevard but also of the Pier, zip wire and 3600 as well as the stately, lit wheel of the Christmas market/summer festivals on the Steine Gardens at the bottom of the street. A gift for gourmets, the stylish kitchen area is sociable but does not dominate the space, and it is skilfully planned with a choice of lighting levels, plenty of storage and working surfaces, all of which flow from the high spec electric hob and oven beneath a hood. Good to go, there is an integrated fridge, freezer and dishwasher, and plumbing is in place for a washer drier.

Light, airy and with direct access to the due south balcony for fun in the sun, the principal bedroom is a private sanctuary to return to, screened from the buildings opposite by a tree (on the other side of the road though so it doesn’t block the light). With ample room even with a King sized bed in it, it is so gorgeous it is occasionally reserved for guests – paying or otherwise- and the chic shower room has touches of luxury which includes a warming rail for towels and toothbrush/shaving point.

Across the hall, two more double bedrooms have floor to ceiling window panels so visitors or sharers can enjoy the city sparking into life in the evening, but don’t forget that there is double glazing! One of the rooms is used as a home office at the moment, but both a good sizes and share a luxury bathroom decorated in classic shades of grey with high end fittings.

Owner's Secret

“This location is ideal with the sea and everything you need on your doorstep and we enjoy feeling very connected to the city even when we are discreetly tucked away in the apartment. Although we value the privacy of the apartment, all the cafés, bars and restaurants are very friendly, so you won’t feel isolated if you are new to Brighton and it is a very welcoming block – we even have a Facebook group to chat on to keep in touch with local events and organise package deliveries etc if you will be out!”

Where It Is

This sought- after location within minutes of legendary shopping, restaurants, clubs, cinemas, theatres is also just a stone’s throw from our world famous seafront. Conveniently located for the Law Courts, Police Station, Amex and the hospitals it is surrounded by parks and gardens which provide cool green spaces but also host events in our fabulous festivals. Close to the picturesque Lanes at the cultural heart of the city, the whole of Brighton and Hove is easy to reach on foot, by bus or by car and the station with its fast links to the airports and London is a 15 minute walk- or 5 by cab.
