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.
