Quiet and stylish, this historic one bedroom apartment has an exclusive address within one of the most prestigious Grade I listed garden squares on the sunny south coast.

Why you'll like it

This impressive building is steeped in history and inside, a fine example of a Regency staircase sweeps you up to this apartment on the first floor landing.

With no one above you, this apartment is particularly peaceful, and plentiful windows combined with large proportions ensure that even the entrance hall is light and inviting- and has plenty of space for study if you work from home.

With high ceilings and big sash windows, the living room has character and light. Decorated in understated elegance and a rare black marble fireplace features fossilised shells. To the rear you'll find a bright and cheerful kitchen with classic units and practical work surfaces. Ready for use with a gas hob, integrated oven and discreet hood. The white goods could stay subject to circumstance and negotiation.

Calm and private, the double bedroom is stylish with a high ceiling and tasteful décor. Along the L shaped passage, an airy bathroom has natural light, a shower over the bath and an original lock.

What's more, spanning almost the whole footprint of this unique home, there's a vast attic space with a shallow pitched roof.
