Hidden away from the main tourist trail but convenient for all our legendary party resort has to offer, this beautiful apartment faces south for the sunshine on a quiet one way street with plentiful permit parking. Once the Hampden Home of Rest for women, which may be why guests comment on its gentle welcome, this apartment is just a stone’s throw from the sea and surrounded by cafes and friendly amenities of the Village which include a bakery, butchers, deli, book and wine store as well as a pharmacy, small Co-Op and Friday farmer’s market.

Built as one of an impressive pair of square bayed Villas, outside first impressions are good and continue in the tidy communal hallway with original plasterwork high overhead. Spanning the whole of the ground floor of this substantial building, at the front a beautiful reception of timeless elegance instantly soothes with a soaring ceiling decorated by a central rose and floral frieze, a gentle colour scheme including gleaming wood flooring and a magnificent, working fireplace. With plenty of floorspace in which to relax or to enjoy with company, a broad bay almost fills the south wall to bring in the sun, there is a unique leaded window to one side and a large, deep cupboard keeps the room clutter free.

An inner sanctum looking over the patio, a light and airy bedroom is where the owners discovered the handmade garland, almost 3 meters overhead and the restful decoration and the stylish, built in wardrobes ensure you won’t need to change a thing.

Streamlined design and attention to detail continue in the stylish kitchen where reflective units provide ample storage, glittering surfaces are user friendly and the Nef five ring gas hob and electric oven are beneath a discreet hood. Bright and cheerful with three levels of lighting, the dishwasher is also integrated for you, plumbing is in place for a washer drier and there is designated space for a big fridge freezer.

The attention to detail continues in the luxury bathroom where high end fittings include a shower at one end of the bath and the first of two warming rails at the other and glamorous waterfall taps. There is ingenious use of space too, which includes the sleek handbasin which has a vanity unit below it and a lit cabinet above.

Outside, it is easy to forget that you are just a few minutes from the centre of a vibrant international city in a secret, walled garden half of which is yours which includes a spot in the far corner with space for a bistro set ideal for al fresco summers, and the door at the back opens to the quiet street behind which has more permit parking.

Agent's Thoughts

“Kemptown Village is affectionately nicknamed Chelsea by the Sea and attracts professionals and international investors as it hosts the County Hospital, is close to the legal district and Amex as well as the city centre.”

Owner's Secret

“Brighton is famous for its shopping, oyster bars and cultural centre as well as festivals celebrating our inclusive community, and the village is tucked away from the crowds of tourists with plenty of local cafés and amenities to choose from but just 10-15 minutes’ walk from the Lanes, so friends like to gather here whilst deciding where to explore – and everyone remarks on the restful atmosphere of the apartment which was once part of a rest home for women run by the Girls Friendly Society.”

Where It Is

Kemptown has an eclectic mix of cafés, shops, restaurants, farmer’s market as well as other local amenities like a Co-Op and pharmacy– and it is bordered by the sea with a seasonal lift down to the beach, beach bars and beachball courts. Within minutes of legendary shopping, restaurants, cinemas and theatres of the picturesque heart of the city it is conveniently located for the hospital, Amex and law courts as well as parks and gardens which provide cool green spaces and hold arts events in the numerous city festivals. Surrounded by the rolling countryside of the South Downs National Park, Kemptown also hosts both the waterfront restaurants of the Marina and world famous racecourse, and has easy access to the whole of the city on foot, by bus or by car. The station with its fast links to Gatwick and London is quick to reach and if you need a car, parking permit zone C has no waiting list.
