Description

Dazzling views over the city to the sea stream through this spacious studio apartment on the top floor of a grand Victorian Villa just a 5 minute walk from the station. Quietly tucked away in the eaves it has a surprisingly large footprint with four defined areas: A studio room, bathroom, kitchen and one of the largest under eave storage rooms we have seen, so it is quirky in character and big of heart! An ideal first buy for those who commute or work in Brighton & Hove bus routes to reach every part of the city are nearby, and this is a natural place for friends to meet to walk to the world famous boutiques, cafes and arts venues of North Laine or the international shopping, bars and restaurants of Churchill Square and Western Road - and in the summer you can hire a smartbike and be sunbathing on the beach in 7 minutes. What's more, the property is sold vacant and with share of freehold.

The address in West Hill conservation area is exclusive and known as the 'golden triangle' because the station, the sea and international shopping are all within walking distance. Outside impresses as this stately building is behind a leafy garden with a grand entrance secured by answer phone, and inside the communal hallway is light, elegant and clearly cared for.

Soaring over the city on the top floor, the front door opens to a private staircase beneath a skylight, so first impressions are good. At the top, this spacious home spreads its wings with a butterfly landing and to the south, the vaulted studio is full of sunshine, the large window framing a spectacular cityscape which sweeps to the sea and along our sparkling coast. The large sofa bed (never been slept in) can also be included if desired. Big and bright there's room to zone, and the spacious bathroom is tucked away to one side. Thanks to a Velux, you can bathe in glory beneath the stars or get refreshed beneath the Galaxy Aqua 3000si shower above it- so water pressure isn't an issue either.

Across the landing, the kitchen area is simple but stylish with all you need to get you started including an integrated gas hob, electric oven and hob. The fridge freezer can be included as well as the washer dryer - rare in a central studio apartment. At the far end, an intriguing door opens to one of the largest under eave attics we have seen with power, built in shelving and a window to the east, which means it is completely private as it is not overlooked. You can also use this as a separate occasional sleeping area if required.

Owner's secret:
"Although it's really central you don't feel hemmed in. The commute's really easy and every weekend feels like a holiday!"

Agent's thoughts:
"A fantastic first time purchase or buy-to-let investment. The area is always sought-after as you can't get any more central and the views are stunning."

5 minutes from the station and buses covering the whole of Brighton & Hove, this location is perfect for commuters and local professionals. A stroll takes you to the famously chic North Laine where you can explore the innumerable boutiques, restaurants, clubs, cinemas and theatres on foot, or you can enjoy the relaxed vibe of 7 Dials and international shopping of Churchill Square and Western Road. Conveniently located for parks that provide cool green spaces and host numerous arts events all year round, for those who love the outdoors, the beach, surrounding Downland and cosmopolitan Marina- with waterfront restaurants- are easy to reach.
