Standing in front of this beautiful Regency home, you are transported back to 1824, when the property was built for the naval hero Cuthbert Collingwood. The building has been maintained to an exceptional standard. This apartment gives you everything: sea views, space and light, exceptional finish and outside space. Kemp Town village is just around the corner with its amazing selection of coffee shops, bistros and quirky individual boutiques, making this one of the city’s most sought after areas. Most importantly, the sea and promenade are located just on the other side of the road, although the property itself is set well back from the coastal road.
Your expectations run high as you walk up to the front door, up the chequered steps and through to the communal hallway, which is simply outstanding with high ceilings, cornicing and decorated to an exceptional standard. Although you won’t need to use it, the beautiful, dark wood mirrored lift is a stunning feature.
There are no further steps as this apartment is raised ground floor. The hallway has a wall-mounted entry phone system, polished engineered oak flooring underfoot, and neutral décor. Tucked to the rear is the shower room, perfectly formed for all your needs. Walk in shower with screen, white sink, WC and tiled for easy maintenance.
The heart of the property has to be the ‘wow factor’ living room which becomes apparent as you enter the flat. Three large sash windows facing south flood the spacious room with light (and heat when the sun is shining); these are beautifully finished off with original shutters and window seats to enjoy the uninterrupted and spectacular sea views. On the west side is a further window which gives views over the communal gardens and a clear sight of the iconic Brighton Pier. The double-height ceiling and cornices, polished engineered oak flooring, crisp neutral decor, and beautiful chandelier certainly set this property apart. At the rear is the kitchen area. White gloss units with fitted appliances including washing machine, Bosch ceramic hob and electric oven, space for a dishwasher and stainless steel moulded sink with chrome fitting, all beautifully finished off with quartz worktops.
On the east side of the room, steps lead up to the mezzanine level with has clear tough glass surround, eaves cupboard storage and carpet laid. This has been used both as a spare bedroom, with room for a double bed, and an office. Thanks to the glass surround, it too benefits from the stunning sea views.
Finally on our journey through the apartment is the double bedroom, which has dual access either from the hallway or living space. Flooded with light from a large sash window with original shutters, views over the communal gardens, double height ceilings and polished engineered oak flooring.
Although the apartment has a good amount of storage space discreetly placed within it, residents also benefit from a large communal storage area in the basement, where items such as bicycles can be kept.
This stunning property would make a wonderful home or second residence to enjoy Kemp Town Seafront and the delights of Kemp Town Village. The apartment comes with Share of Freehold
