Built as 'Belgravia by the Sea', Kemp's symmetrical masterpiece Sussex Square is one of the UK's finest Regency developments devised to frame verdant gardens and a sparkling expanse of open sea. Adorned by columns and a Belvedere, this magnificent Grade I listed building stands opposite the gated garden enclosures for the residents, and this luxury two bedroom apartment also has a private, south facing courtyard as well as a secluded patio at the back to enjoy. No expense has been spared in this glamorous, design led refurbishment which features antique French radiators and bespoke Tulip wood kitchen graced by rare granite surfaces, and the tranquil double bedrooms – the guest room en suite- will soothe the spirit. The famous enclosures have a tunnel to the beach, and a stroll along the seafront takes you to our international Marina or alfresco lifestyle of our famous party resort.

Conceived by Thomas Kemp, designed by Busby and Wilds and built by Cubitt for the rich and famous, Grade I listed Sussex Square is a jewel in our coastal crown - and is one of only two in our world famous city which have gardens exclusively for the residents. Just a 5 minute cab ride from the picturesque Georgian heart of the city with its cosmopolitan clubs, bars and restaurants, returning to leafy surrounds you will feel a world away from the city – and certainly leave any stress behind- in this hushed haven, which spans the whole of the lower floor of a beautiful building built in an age reliant on natural light, so has plenty of it.

Inside, the sculpted hallway with porcelain underfoot, embossed radiator and discreet cupboard for coats and bags introduces you to the exceptional level of finish throughout this fully refurbished apartment, with replaced timber frame windows, new wiring, plumbing and woodwork.

To the left, an immaculate living room delivers a sophisticated, contemporary lifestyle. Full of sunlight streaming through the twin, south facing windows this stunning room is ideal for entertaining friends and family, and it is a room for all seasons with a streamlined, flame effect fireplace bringing warmth as well as style to space. There is an easy flow to the discreet kitchen area where handmade units of Tulip wood are topped by magnificent surfaces of a rare granite, high spec appliances, including a fabulous, multi fuel Falcon Range and hood are integrated for you, and ambient lighting adjusts the mood.

Central to this home, the exceptional attention to detail continues in a spa like bathroom lined with Travetine stone with sleek, high end fittings where you can relax and refresh in total seclusion in a raised, freestanding baignoir.

Light and airy at the back of the building, the generous guest suite is not directly overlooked with views across the private patio at the rear, and the chic en suite shower room has a designer finish. Not to be outshone, the master bedroom is a serene sanctuary with handcrafted wardrobes already in place, a window which stretches up to the ceiling – which is high- and a door to the tranquil, lit patio perfect for morning coffee or romantic nightcaps.

Agent says:

"With an exceptional, luxury finish, this fabulous apartment is in an exclusive area of our world famous party resort attracting both national and international buyers."

Owner's secret

"The Square has a lovely community and we have a summer fete in the enclosure opposite. We have enjoyed restoring this beautiful apartment and sharing it with friends who like to walk along the seafront in the summer to the theatres and Lanes, and as some items, like the Tootsie handmade sofas were bought specifically for the apartment, we are happy to discuss terms."
