With an air of grandeur and an undoubtable architectural beauty, the townhouses of Lansdowne Place sit in one of the most highly favoured conservation areas in the city; sweeping down the hill towards the sea. This very generous three-bedroom apartment is the crowning glory of a mid-terrace house, where the palatial living room follows the curve of the bow, and being split-level adds to the sense of space. It has been a very happy home for 25-years, and has been well-maintained in this time, yet there is scope for modernisation too should you wish to put your own stamp on the place. With the boutique shops and cafes of Western Road just minutes away, as well as two commuter stations and several popular schools; this apartment would suit families and professionals alike, wishing to live amongst a vibrant community close to the sea.

Why you'll like it:

Effortlessly elegant, the Regency homes of Brunswick Town have become integral to Brighton and Hove's unique identity as a cosmopolitan city of style and taste. They were the 'brain-child' of eminent architect, Charles Busby, who hoped to replicate the distinguished Nash developments in London. The magnolia curved facades with gleaming ornate balconies and columns are certainly impressive, and while most have since been converted into luxury apartments; they continue to attract people to the area.
Residing half way up the eastern side of the terrace, this apartment is approached up some wide stone steps, and through a secure communal hallway where sweeping stairs take you to your floor. Once inside, the scale of the flat is immediately apparent as stairs take you up through a double height stairwell to a generous landing area with an original stained-glass window on the southern side. The décor is fresh and neutral to suit all types of furnishing; with blue carpet underfoot to complement cornflower walls, and bedroom two is directly ahead.
Beautifully light due to its easterly aspect and elevated position looking out over the city, this bedroom is also peaceful, and from the tall sash, the historic landscape includes lines of chimney stacks marching down to the sea with church spiers and the new i360 rising head and shoulders above the rest – reminding you just how close to the coast you are here. This is a lovely double room with a deep built in cupboard, and even with a large double bed, the floor space is not compromised.
A few steps take you to the sizable upper landing which would be ideal for a home office as it is quiet and feels like a room in its own right. The master bedroom shares the sunny, easterly aspect and views of bedroom two, and is another large double room with feature wall paper and space for generous pieces of bedroom furniture. It would be very possible, due to the scale of the room, to add an en suite bathroom in here – certainly food for thought.
Spanning the front of the house, the living room and kitchen are separate but linked so you can easily bring food through to the table. This is perfectly positioned within the bay by the window, so you can gaze out over the rooftops to the hills of the South Downs; taking in Truleigh Hill in the north and the glistening sea to the south. This westerly aspect also treats you to exceptional sunsets which light up the expanse of sky and bring a warming pink light into the room. Taking centre stage, a period fireplace acknowledges the era of the building, and may be able to warm the room during winter– although having not been lit by the current owners, a professional would need to investigate first.
Next door, the kitchen also faces west, so there are lovely views to wash up to, and modern units have been fitted with an integrated oven and gas hob, leaving space for a washing machine and tall fridge freezer.
A further flight of stairs leads up to the bathroom and bedroom three. Fresh in white with a modern shower over the bath, the bathroom is classic, and bedroom three is another lovely double bedroom from which you can enjoy the city, sky and seascape.

Owners' secret:

"We have spent 25 happy years here and have really enjoyed the flat and the location. Being positioned in the middle of both Brighton and Hove's social and cultural centres, there is plenty to entertain you on foot, and with St Ann's Well Gardens and the beach equidistant from the flat, you don't miss a garden. We will miss the peace and the views from up here, but it is time for our next move."
