A fantasy blend of spectacular sea views, glittering city scape and beautiful Art Deco building surrounded by manicured grounds, built in 1939 for luxury living on the Sussex coast this landmark building has roared into the 21st century with energy efficient windows and statement entrances around a formal central garden. Secured by an entry system, CCTV and a concierge, Marine Gate’s friendly community stocks a private swap library, holds monthly coffee mornings and seasonal celebrations as well as hosting various clubs, and if you are looking for a lock up and leave, there is also a safe luggage drop and security patrol upon request.
With lift access, inside the apartment a hushed inner lobby with a deep mirrored cupboard for coats introduces you to the skilled interior design which subtly balances practical living with the glamour of its prime waterfront location: Double glass doors reveal an inviting room where a picture window frames open water and designer paper conceals a secret door to the utility area – so beach towels can go straight to the machine.
Together forming a magnificent sun filled space, a progression of beautiful receptions span the south face of the prime west wing and lined with windows, all invite company to embrace magnificent views over the Marina to the glory of open water. Designed for night or day, lit arches lead the way from room to room, where lit bookcases also add ambience in the evenings. The elegant dining room allows guests to relax in complete seclusion when seated and at the heart of the entertaining space, the artistic owners have raised a platform in front of the bay so guests can fully appreciate the astounding views of the water by day and a fascinating cityscape as it wakes at night. There is a quiet, comfortable seating area tucked away from the heat whilst the sun baked balcony is ideal for tapas in a holiday setting.
At the eastern end of the apartment, a romantic music room has a bank of windows watching over yachts coming into safe harbour as well as coastal views sweeping to the white cliffs at Telsecombe through the covered veranda, which is so bright it is used as an artist’s studio.
This streamlined kitchen is good to go. High spec integrated appliances include a Neff touch induction hob beneath an Elica hood, a grill/combi and separate fan oven with a warming tray at eye level as well as a dishwasher. With white reflective units topped by glittering working surfaces which glitter beneath a choice of lighting levels it is a look which won’t date, and there is a ‘back’ door which opens to an area where both rubbish and recycling are collected every day.
Tucked away around the corner, a spacious utility area has extra storage, plumbing for two machines and space for both a full size fridge and freezer.
Formerly the maids domain and hidden behind a secret door from the music room, a spacious lobby has a contemporary shower room with a statement porthole window picked out in mosaic. Next door, guests will love the peaceful double room which has fitted wardrobes, and it is worth noting that with folding doors between the music room and the other receptions, you could create a magnificent principal/guest bedroom wing with an en suite shower room, dressing room and veranda or comfortable children’s rooms in this area.
Currently a bedroom, luxury bathroom and home office all completely private beyond an inner lobby, it was originally designed as two bedrooms for the owners with a central luxury bathroom so they do not share a wall. The first of these is a restful refuge, used as a home office with all the storage you could dream of and open views over the city which sweep to the sea.
A serene sanctuary with a vista which stretches across historic Kemptown to the Monaco style entrance to the Marina and open sea, the large principal bedroom is not overlooked, and with soothing colour choice and a wall of built in closets including a shelving unit for lotions and potions, you won’t need to change a thing.
