Through the Home for Life Plan, anyone aged over sixty can purchase a lifetime lease on this property which discounts the price from its full market value. The size of the discount you are entitled to depends on your age, personal circumstances and property criteria and could be anywhere between 8.5% and 59% from the property´s full market value. The above price is for guidance only. It is based on our average discount and would be the estimated price payable by a 69-year-old single male.

Property description


Want to enjoy the buzz of living on Brighton's seafront from your very own balcony? Imagine spending the summer months sitting out there watching the world go by below you. The views are to spectacular… on a clear day you can see the whole coastline from Worthing as far as past Brighton Marina and beyond.

Visualise coming home from a long day at work to enjoy a glass of wine on the roof terrace with friends whilst relaxing and watching the sunset.

If you prefer to be out and about then you’d never have to worry about taxi queues again as everything, from the trendy bars and restaurants, to the local shops, to the station, are all within walking distance, making your life a breeze.

Once inside the flat you will notice it is modern, with neutral decor meaning you can just pack up your boxes and move straight in, with no worry of the dreaded diy.

Embassy Court is one of Brighton’s most iconic buildings. It was built in the Art Deco modernist period and the design based on Cunard Liner, this is shown with the clean white lines, tiered balconies and the large communal roof terrace.

What the Owner says:
I took a lot of care and attention in restoring this flat to reflect its glorious, significant historical
heritage.

The kitchen was hand built with an Art Deco aesthetic in "Brighton green" with lots of unusual yet practical details making it a joy to work in. I added masses of built in storage where ever possible.

It truly was a labour of love and i've loved living here. Waking to the sight and sound of the sea is a privilege, the sunsets and the moon or sun reflected on the water are magical daily treats.
