Why you'll like it:
Effortlessly elegant, the Regency townhouses 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 with their ornate balconies and columns. Many of the townhouses have now been converted into luxury apartments such as this one, they continue to attract people here from far and wide, almost 200 years later.

Residing part way up the eastern side of the terrace, this apartment is approached up some wide stone steps, and through a well-maintained communal hallway where sweeping stairs take you to up to the first floor. Spanning both the ground and the first floors of the building, this property has access doors on both, but the first floor brings you in to the main reception room which is a welcoming space to come home to.
Breathtakingly beautiful with soaring ceilings and three full height windows on the westerly wall, the main reception is exceptional with ornate plasterwork mouldings wending their way around the perimeter. The original wooden floorboards have been sanded and varnished back to their former glory and a period fireplace takes centre stage. A room of this size invites entertaining as it has ample space for formal dining and relaxation. During the summer months, you can sit out on the full width balcony from which you can see the sea across the square, and with a westerly aspect, the front of the house receives the last of the summer sunshine.

Open plan to the room, the kitchen sits to the rear of the building and has a modern take on a period style. There are low level cabinets concealing the dishwasher and integrated oven and induction hob which has been seamlessly fitted into solid oak worktops. Space has been left for an American fridge freezer while the remaining units are freestanding. Glorious views are brought into the space via another full height window opening to a sun room where you can sit in the morning sun looking out to the picturesque garden which is backed by St Patrick's Church. These views do not feel urban in the slightest, making it hard to believe you are so close to the city.

Stepping down to the half landing, there is a utility space which has a tall cupboard housing the washing machine and the fully serviced central heating boiler. This would also be the ideal space for a home office as it is perfectly peaceful here and has room for a comfortable desk and chair. A side door opens to the garden, but there is also access via the rear bedroom on the ground floor.

Downstairs, there are three elegant double bedrooms with the master facing the front of the property with two tall sashes: Following the natural curve of the building. Being slightly elevated from the street, it is private in here, and the generous proportions continue on this level – as do an abundance of period features.
New hardwood flooring runs throughout this level in warm chestnut tones to complement fresh white walls which serve to brighten the internal hallway. From here there are two contemporary bathrooms – both classic in white; one with a bath and the other with a separate shower cubical.

Bedroom three sits centrally to the apartment with garden views, and while this is the smaller of the three, it remains a double room which is currently being used as a study. Bedroom two sits tucked away at the rear of the building with romantic French doors leading out to the garden, framing leafy, floral views which are a joy to wake up to.

Outside, the garden is a treat for the senses with manicured borders around a neat lawn. Palm trees, a yucca and wisteria bring shape and texture to the space throughout the year, while potted plants and climbing florals bloom in the spring and summer adding scent and colour. Being open to the south ensures it is a real sun trap during high season, and with the church to the rear, it does not feel overlooked in the slightest.

Agent's thoughts:
This is a truly beautiful apartment which offers an abundance of space and character, plus a wonderful garden which will appeal to many looking to live in the city. It has been expertly maintained so you can move straight in with ease, and you cannot beat the location for the quintessential Brighton & Hove lifestyle.
