Property description

Purchasing this property with A lifetime lease


This property is offered at a reduced price for people aged over 60 through Homewise´s Home for Life Plan. 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. As such, the price you would pay could be higher or lower than this figure.

For more information or a personalised quote, just give us a call. Alternatively, if you are under 60 or would like to purchase this property without a Home for Life Plan at its full market price of £540,000, please contact Cubitt & West.


Property description


If you dream of living in the heart of Brighton town centre, amongst all that it has to offer, then this modern apartment will fit the bill nicely. Impressively positioned it cannot fail to make an impact on you as soon as you see it. Approaching from West Street, the gated entrance and underground car parking is the first thing that grabs you. Stepping into the communal gardens that are in the centre of the buildings you realise this is something different.

The apartment itself can be easily accessed by foot from Middle Street too, with a more low key entrance that might be more convenient for just popping out. The elevated position separates you from the street and gives you a relatively good level of privacy.

Arranged for a contemporary open plan lifestyle the property feels spacious and airy. The kitchen area is fitted with stylish white high gloss units that will complement your furniture and there is room for a table and chairs to dine at too, lending the space to entertaining.

With an en suite shower room to Bedroom 1 and a good size second bedroom having guests to stay will surely be on the cards.

Room sizes:
  • Entrance Hall
  • Bathroom 7'5 x 6'8 (2.26m x 2.03m)
  • Bedroom 2 18'2 x 7'9 (5.54m x 2.36m)
  • Bedroom 1 13'6 x 8'7 (4.12m x 2.62m)
  • En Suite Shower Room 8'1 x 6'8 (2.47m x 2.03m)
  • Juliette Balcony
  • Landing
  • Kitchen/Living Room 22'9 x 21'4 (6.94m x 6.51m)
