Why you'll like it:
Strongly influenced by the Georgian architecture in London at the time, Regency Square was by far the most opulent of the seafront enclosures during its creation in 1818. Grade II listed, they have all the characteristics of Wild's style of construction, and one can't help thinking how exciting it must have been to see the seafront expand on such a regal scale. Set slightly to the east on the elevated, northern strip of the square, this townhouse has the quintessential creamy curved façade and bowed frontage so often found in this era, and it has retained sea views from every floor. Formed from the upper floors, this maisonette feels more like a house, particularly due to the split-level aspect at the rear.
You approach up the original tiled stairs and climb one floor to where your door is clearly numbered. Entering in to a small entrance hall, you are immediately aware that this is an immaculate renovation, where newly laid hardwood floors in ash tones, and pristine walls lead you up to the first landing, and to the family bathroom. From here and throughout the apartment, the luxurious and polished finish is unceasing. The finest quality, contemporary fittings have been used in here including a freestanding bathtub, and an organic curved hand basin, yet they blend perfectly with the classic period charm of the building.
A few more steps and you come to the second floor where bedroom two is peacefully located to the rear of the property, with has a soothing palette of creams, and is warmed by a traditional style radiator in white. These have been placed in all rooms for continuity, and complement the fresh décor perfectly.
South facing, and with a stunning bow window following the curve of the building, is the outstanding, open-plan living room and kitchen. The bow provides the ideal spot of a circular dining table and chairs, from which you can enjoy the fine vista as you entertain, and there is ample space remaining for comfortable sofas around the period fireplace. Not only does the sea tempt you at the bottom of the road, but the square holds 1.5 acres of communal gardens to enjoy, so along with the stunning neighbouring architecture and skyscapes, the views are breath taking.
Running along the eastern wall, the kitchen units have a chic matt finish, and these are topped with white Corian into which the sink and drain grooves have been seamlessly cut-in. The washing machine, dishwasher, fridge, freezer, oven and Smeg hob have also been integrated, so you can move straight in with ease. A further flight of stairs takes you to the romantic top floor bedrooms which mirror the footprint of the rooms below. The master bedroom spans the width of the house, and can boast a glamorous wet room style shower room behind glass doors. This is on-trend with Moroccan tiles in traditional blue and white, and the rainfall showerhead creates a real spa experience.
The West Pier was built axially to the square, intentionally and for the enjoyment of the residents. While its ghost remains, Brighton's newest landmark: The i360, can be viewed from here, and although opinion in the city is divided on it, it doesn't obstruct or dominate the view.
"This house has been a joy to renovate; to breathe new life into this glorious building for people to enjoy for many years in the future. The location is fantastic too - so close to the fashionable Lanes with their restaurants, boutique shops and bars, and just a short walk to Brighton Station - perfect!"
