Property description

One of only three in a row, Black Lion Lane lies between Black Lion and Ship Street, and forms undoubtedly the oldest row of terrace houses in Brighton. In fact, Charles II during his escape to France in the 17th century, is said to have been carried piggyback along the lane by a fisherman!

In more ways than one, this home is quite unique, designed and owned by interior designer Sophie Robinson, she has appeared as a judge on BBC2's The Great Interior Design Challenge and is currently starring in BBC1 diy sos.

Sophie and her husband bought number 2 & 3 Black Lion Lane primarily for investment and has proven to be a fruitful holiday let business in the heart of Brighton Old Town.

Both houses are being offered for sale, together or separately, and are finished to exacting standards. Viewing is simply essential to fully appreciate what these stunning homes have to offer.
