Description

This grand house, designed by the famous Regency architects Amon Wilds and Charles Busby, was built in 1828 and is Grade 1 listed. Impressive in scale and with a wealth of period features this substantial house provides considerable accommodation. Many of the rooms have superb views of either the sea to the front or the South Downs to the rear.
Currently arranged as three separate dwellings over six floors, the present owners use the top four floors as their main residence while the ground and lower ground floors are let as two self contained one bedroom flats. The house has enormous potential, with considerable scope for re-arranging the accommodation. Subject to the necessary consents one or both of the flats might be re-incorporated into the main house.
The house has many large, bright, versatile rooms with original cornicing and shutters. There is a magnificent first floor drawing room with fine sea views and a full width balcony set between tall Corinthian columns. On the top floor a large secluded south facing roof terrace has far reaching views of the sea, the marina, and along Brighton seafront.
As part of the Regency Kemp Town Estate, residents are keyholders of the Enclosures - six acres of beautiful, secure, gated gardens, with a private tunnel to the beach.
The house has many theatrical connections. For much of the 20th century it was owned by the film and television actor Robert Flemyng, whose friends Sir Laurence Olivier and ts Eliot were regular visitors. The ground floor was occupied by the famous music hall artist Douglas Byng, for whom a blue plaque has recently been approved.
