Within a grand Grade II listed mansion watching over the sea and set back from the road, the front entrance is imposing and secured with an entry system, ideal for every day or for when you need to lock up and leave. Inside the communal hall impresses with a fine example of a Regency staircase sweeping up beneath a vaulted roof light and now embracing a lift, and privately tucked away at the far end is the front door to this apartment where sensor lighting invites you into an L shaped hallway where a large cupboard awaits coats, boots and bags.
The open plan living room:
Sunlight streams through this atmospheric reception where the south facing windows are so broad and tall that you can enjoy the open sea even when sitting down. The magnificent views reach from the east, over the glittering Pier and on towards the bay at Worthing in the west so you can relax in the sunshine all day long. For more intimate evenings, the windows have retained the original wooden shutters although gained secondary double glazing, and the elegant marble fireplace brings warmth as well as grace to this space with a flame effect fire. Beautifully proportioned, an intricate frieze wends its way around the room high above your head and traditional, custom built cabinets and radiator covers add a designer finish.
Naturally zoned by the shape of the room, the timeless beauty of the reception gives way to a streamlined kitchen area which bends time with exposed brick and oak flooring conjuring images of the dawn of the industrial age whilst sleek white units with a subtle gold trim and glittering quartz surfaces are unmistakably 21st century. Designed for entertaining, high spec appliances include a Neff touch induction hob beneath a striking Faber hood, a Miele fan oven and a combi oven with a warming tray – and it has been skilfully planned with the fridge to one side and freezer to the other. There is a dishwasher beneath the Blanco steel sink and Quooker tap, and the units turn the corner into the main room via a sociable bar, and house a wine cooler by the dining area.
The guest suite and bathroom bedroom 2/artist studio:
At the heart of this exquisite apartment, the guest bedroom is a generous size with a ceiling so high that a second, mezzanine level has been built with an industrial chic theme, the top tier reached by a metal ladder. Completely private with frosted windows, each level has its own lighting. At the foot of the ladder, the door leads to a luxury shower room, wet room in style with high end fittings and which can also be reached from the hallway.
With a window framing the glory of the garden, the second double bedroom is so light and airy it is used as an artists studio complete with built in shelf beneath the window and along the far wall, there is a discreet sink and plumbing for utility machines.
The Principle Suite:
Made for romance and full of birdsong, this beautiful room has broad French doors almost reaching the ceiling to sweep you out onto a paved terrace looking over the lush garden, ideal for private nightcaps or breakfast in the morning sun. Inside, bespoke walk in closets provide sophisticated storage and with restful decoration you won’t need to change a thing. Large enough for a double ended bath which has a shower attachment, the en suite is lined in slate. Right on trend with rails to heat your towels, a bidet toilet combo and a mirror which is actually a cabinet, it also has natural light.
The Garden and Home Office:
Child friendly and secure, this private paradise has kept its generous length and breadth, and is imaginatively designed with scented climbers on the walls and discreetly lit borders. The spacious paved terrace which conveys with the apartment looks over a lawn to which you currently have sole access, large enough for play which has a seating area to one side and raised deck at the end, shaded by the delicate foliage of a mature tree and party perfect as it has power points for music and/or heaters. On the right, the gravelled path leads to a timber cabin with power, storage and a stable door, as well as to a paved area, out of sight of the garden behind fencing, for sheds and eco- friendly water butt.
