Description Classically elegant and Grade II listed to acknowledge its architectural grace, this Georgian house has unique period features and finely proportioned rooms which have been sensitively updated to create a stylish 5 bedroom family home ideal for contemporary entertaining. A glamorous roof terrace looks over gardens and a west facing balcony has sea views as the English Channel is at the end of the quiet terrace. Spacious bedrooms include a glamorous master en suite with a dressing room and there's an interesting option of forming a self-contained apartment with its own entrance spanning the lower floor (subject to the necessary consents). At the heart of fashionable Kemptown Village it is tucked away on a one way street within walking distance of the world famous shopping, restaurants and art venues of the heart of the city (or you can catch a cab- it's only 5 minutes). You'll have access to some of the best schools in the country including Brighton College, and it's ideal for professionals and investors as the whole of the city is easy to reach- the County Hospital, Amex and Law Courts on foot- and nearby bus routes take you swiftly to the station serving Gatwick and London.
By the sea in a sought after area and on one of the best preserved Georgian streets in Kemptown, this beautiful Grade II listed home with bays and balconies has plenty of appeal from the outside. Inside, the inviting hallway has delicate period detail and a practical tiled floor to the discreet utility room â so swimming, riding or running kits can go straight into the machine.
The kitchen and dining room
With a sunny east â west orientation the ground floor has been opened up to create an inviting space with plenty of room for entertaining. Dark wood gleams underfoot -so children can have free reign- and elegant coving is high above your head. Central double doors keep your options open and with glazed panels, light streams through the broad front bay whilst in the far wall, a tall sash window brings in leafy views. In winter months there's a uniquely handsome fireplace in the dining area which we're told could be reopened, dimmer switches make the space cosy and traditional shelves and cupboards on each side is a thoughtful touch.
Designed with friends and family in mind, the handmade kitchen has sturdy painted units in heritage colours topped by glossy black quartz which glints beneath a choice of lighting. Beautifully planned, high spec appliances are integrated for you and include a Bosch 5 ring gas hob, fan oven, hood and microwave, plumbing is in place for a dishwasher by the dual Butler's sink, and there's designated space for a tall fridge freezer of your choice.
The first floor reception, bedroom and bathroom:
The Georgians had a flair for creating gracious spaces intended to impress, and this majestic reception is no exception. Three magnificent floor to ceiling windows form a bay to frame views along Regency homes to glorious views of the English Channel, which you can enjoy to the full from a delicately wrought balcony. Inside, there's plenty of floor space in which to relax or to enjoy with friends and the walls are adorned by the original floral frieze. With traditional shelving to each side, the elegant white marble fireplace adds to its timeless character whilst dimmer switches allow you to choose the atmosphere.
Next door, guests will love the comfortable double bedroom which is quieter than many in this historic quarter as it backs onto gardens. Tasteful dÃ©cor has carefully retained the refined relief which runs around the room and the window reaches the ceiling â which is high- and brings in leafy views. Close by on the half landing, the first of the four bathrooms has an eco- friendly bath beneath the shower and ample storage.
The roof terrace and second floor bedrooms and bathroom.
Looking over a sea of gardens, the roof terrace has space for a table and chairs and is a relaxing haven after a busy day in the city, or a sunny spot for morning coffee and planning the weekend.
On the second floor, the double bedroom at the back is simple but stylish with a period fireplace and with open views which change with the seasons, it isn't overlooked. The chic en suite shower room has fixtures to sooth away anxieties and also opens to a serene double bedroom at the front of the house, which also has cherished period features.
The master suite:
Private, luxurious and spacious as it spans the whole of the top floor of this substantial building, the master suite is a tranquil refuge. Light and airy with all the storage you could wish for in the sophisticated dressing area, creative attention to detail has ensured you'll feel pampered in a spa like en suite where you can relax in a luxury bath or recharge beneath the shower, and considerate touches include the heated rail to warm your towels.
The Lower Floor:
Still part of the house, there is a spacious bedroom, living/music room and an airy shower room, all with high ceilings and big windows to bring in lots of natural light. With its own private entrance to the residential street at the front and a petite bbq space as the back, it's perfect for visitors or even raises the possibility of making a self-contained apartment to produce an income.
"This beautiful house is in a sought after area known for its sense of community, and houses which still have their lower floor on this popular one way street do not come on the market often."
"Although it's convenient for the city, as we're based at the hospital it's great to have all we need in the village from speciality shops to cafÃ©s and restaurants. We all enjoy time together, but it's useful to have three living rooms so we're not always on top of each other, and I love the master suite with its walk through closet."

Train Station: Brighton 10-15 minutes by bus
Seafront or Park: Seafront is at the end of the terrace, Queen's Park is under a 10 minute walk
