TENURE: Share of Freehold
A fabulous, well-proportioned studio apartment on the top floor of this period building on one of Hove’s favourite Avenues, just off Church Road and with the seafront at the bottom of the road. The bedroom and living area are large enough to zone into distinct spaces, particularly as the ceilings are so high and vaulted, which gives a wonderful feeling of space and airyness. The kitchen is a fully functioning close-away unit, which houses an integrated oven, hob, sink and several storage cupboards. With clever planning and considered furnishing, there is no reason why a more permanent, larger kitchen area could not be installed, subject to freeholders consent. A good size bathroom with bath and shower over completes the accommodation.
The property has a favoured westerly aspect with windows overlooking the rooftops of Hove. It also has sole access onto a generous roof terrace although we understand that it falls under the ownership of the freehold as a whole, although the only access if via this flat.
The decoration, whilst eminently liveable, would benefit from some modernisation and zoning to make the most of the space and ceiling height and make it more contemporary. The property is wonderfully light and bright and could be made more of with only a modicum of clever design.
First Avenue is hugely popular as it has the seafront, with beautiful Hove Lawns, at its bottom end and Church Road, with its wide range of shops, restaurants and amenities, at the upper. From First Avenue, a stroll along the seafront promenade connects you to the i360, the Piers and Brighton city centre. Hove mainline station is under a mile away and connects to London Victoria in 70 minutes. Buses run at each end of First Avenue with frequent and swift connections into the city centre (just 1.2 miles walk away) and all across the city.
