Amongst the finest Regency squares within the UK, Sussex Square is one of the most desirable addresses on the sunny Sussex coast. Outside, this magnificent building impresses with giant Corinthian columns and statuesque front door and inside, the hushed communal hall with its sweeping, stone staircase is wonderfully atmospheric – although there is a lift to the third floor which is carefully hidden away.

Inside, a light lobby has practical cupboards for coats and boots and tucked away at the back of the building with open views over the spire of St Mark's Chapel, now an arts venue, the double bedroom has generous proportions and its bright and inviting as the large window reaches the ceiling – which is high.

Along the hallway, the comfortable living room has fresh décor and plenty of space in which to relax or enjoy with friends and as it looks across the lightwell, it's peaceful as well. An inner lobby has a stylish bathroom with a Mira Sport shower over the bath on one side and big storage and attic access on the other, and leads to a bright and cheerful kitchen with plenty of space to play with. A modern classic which won't date, it's ready for use with an integrated touch induction hob and Beko oven and a grill, plumbing is in place for a machine and there's even a sociable breakfast bar running along the far wall.
