A fabulous one-bedroom period apartment situated in a handsome building in Hove, near the Brighton border. An eclectic range of independent bars and cafes, as well as day-to-day convenience stores, are just moments away on the popular thoroughfare of Western Road, while the sea is just one and a half blocks south and can be seen from the kitchen window.
The property is accessed via secure entryphone with a communal hallway leading up to the third floor where the entrance to the flat is. From here, an elegant internal staircase leads up to the fourth floor over which the accommodation extends to about 911 sq ft. The apartment is in very good decorative order and retains a number of period features which sit beautifully in concert with the more modern decor, including characterful reclaimed timber accents which recall its setting close to the beach.
The accommodation is arranged around a wide central hallway with sweeping staircase, and comprises spacious sitting room, double bedroom with fitted shelving and free-standing wardrobes, large modern bathroom and kitchen with adjoining dining room. The dining room could work equally well as guest accommodation or study. The kitchen is fitted with a number of contemporary white units and has a gas hob, oven and space for additional appliances. Space-saving sliding doors in the dining room provide access to a very large 21ft storage cupboard in the eaves.
In addition, on street parking is available locally (permit required).
The apartment occupies part of an elegant Regency townhouse on Cambridge Road, facing onto St Patrick’s Church. The property is within easy reach of Brunswick Square, the green spaces of Hove Lawns and the seafront, in addition to the plentiful amenities of Church Road, Western Road and Churchill Square, where there are a great many cafes, pubs, restaurants and shops. Local buses link Hove to central Brighton for further shopping amenities. Brighton station is 1 mile distant with fast and direct trains to London and Gatwick Airport.
