One of Brighton’s finest addresses in an iconic Regency landmark of our coastal resort with the sea and gated landscaped gardens for use of the residents on your doorstep, this refined ground floor maisonette is a rare and special find. A grand entrance to the building has Doric columns and sea views and inside, an impressive communal entrance is cared for and well organised. Ahead, stately doors sweep open to an unexpected gem; an uplifting inner sanctum, serenely lined with Ionic columns where both an arched doorway to the hotel foyer, (no longer used) and large window frame the English Channel– and a lift is discreetly hidden away to your left.

Tucked away in the calm, southwest wing at the back of this substantial building, afternoon sunshine streams through this unusually spacious and quietly sequestered home which offers the graceful lifestyle only a Grade I listed property can provide. Inside, crisp clean lines and fresh decoration of a broad hall introduce you to the timeless interiors of this classic beauty, where subtle attention to detail has a large coat cupboard and cloakroom tucked away, and both the high ceiling and oak flooring continue through to the light filled living room. Instantly inviting with elegant Regency proportions and handsome windows almost filling the walls at each end there is plenty of floorspace in which to relax or enjoy with friends, the ceiling soars to a stunning 3.31m overhead and handmade cabinets have been carefully constructed so they do not disturb the picture rail or precious, period coving.

There is an easy flow to the light and airy kitchen/breakfast room -unusually also dual aspect- with one of the statuesque windows opening to leafy views of the courtyard beneath. Designed for company, this kitchen is good to go with a choice of lighting levels, practical layout and glamorous but user friendly granite surfaces. Integrated appliances include a Neff 5 ring gas hob beneath a hood, a grill/combi and a fan oven, fridge, freezer and dishwasher, there is space for an extra, tall fridge freezer as well for parties, and there is no need for clutter as plumbing for utility machines is concealed elsewhere.

Downstairs, (and there is big under stair cupboard to fill,) a lobby has a door to the lower communal area, ideal for furniture moving or working from home as any meetings would not disturb the main rooms above. The first of the generous double rooms has fitted wardrobes and faces the buildings central light well which brings in soft, flattering light by day and ensures this space is free from street and car lights at night. Next door, the second bedroom is also a good size and has plenty of historic character of its own with traditional storage which also hides plumbing for utility machines where you need them close to the bed linen and towels. Looking over the secluded courtyard it is not directly overlooked and across the landing, opposite triple cupboards, a luxury shower room has a dual head system, shaving point and heated rail ready to soothe and to restore. Currently used as a comfortable place from which to work from home, the tranquil principle bedroom opens to a secret sun trap scented by the owner’s pots and with oak underfoot, a walk in closet large enough to be a dressing room and stylish en suite bathroom, this charming refuge is ready for your move.

Agent's Thoughts

“Brighton is famous for its stately Regency developments, and this spacious maisonette has a sunny, private courtyard which is a very rare find. On a practical note, there is an unusual amount of storage inside the apartment and there are also communal, under pavement caverns around the building.”

Owner's Secret

“We love Regency architecture and still get a thrill when we walk along the seafront and see our beautiful terrace. We fell in love with the building and the restful proportions of the rooms, which are all light and spacious. The gardens are beautiful all year round and we’ve made the most of them, and there is nothing to beat a great night out in the city and returning to our own peaceful, private courtyard retreat.”

Where It Is

Opposite the sea but quietly tucked away from the tourists, this sought after Regency terrace has use of 7.5 acres of Grade II listed gardens which have a tunnel to the beach said to have inspired the rabbit hole in Lewis Carrol’s ‘Alice through the Looking Glass’. For exclusive use by residents they are not only secure, but also a social focal point of a vibrant, inclusive community. Close to the beach, schools, park and golf course, there are plenty of local shops, bars and cafés serving your every need including Marmalade Café & Deli, Busby & Wilds Restaurant and Daddy Long Legs Bistro Bar. Kemptown Village also has plenty of amenities including a farmers market, and the waterfront restaurants and cinemas of the Marina are also just a short walk if you don’t want to drive. The famous cultural heart of the city is about 5 minutes by cab, there is a regular bus service close by that runs past the hospital and Brighton College to the station and for commuting by car, access to the A23/A27 is swift and zone H has no waiting list for permits.
