WATERSIDE - Viceroy Lodge is a mansion block built in the 30's and situated at the southern end of popular Hove Street directly on the coast road, with a secluded, private garden for residents use only. The main entrance lobby is in late art-deco style with light wood panelled walls leading to a wide stairway or lift access. This generous apartment is well proportioned and decorated and is situated on the first floor, making it easily accessible from the lobby. The front door opens into an ample hallway, off which all the rooms lead and which houses two useful built-in cupboards. The living room has a square bay at one end, affording partial sea views and providing a generous space for a dining table. A partially glazed door opens out onto a wide walled balcony with safety rail, providing a comfortable seating area with oblique sea views. The living room is carpeted in a cream wool carpet that is only just over 2 years old. Opposite the living room is a good size kitchen with several integrated appliances and marble effect flooring, overlooking the communal gardens. The gardens offer residents a quiet green space in which to enjoy the evening sun. The master bedroom, again with views over the gardens, is light and well-proportioned and has a comprehensive set of fitted wardrobes and cupboards. Adjoining the master is a fully tiled shower room with walk-in shower which has been refurbished within the last few years. The second bedroom is a good size and, more importantly, benefits from access onto the balcony via a French-window style door. There is also a further adjoining bathroom, featuring a roll-top, freestanding bath. A change to the door format could transform this into an en-suite, subject to planning consent. The third bedroom also enjoys a garden view and could provide a combined study/bedroom or separate dining room.
This property is featured by our Waterside department.
Located on the corner of Hove Street and the coast road, Viceroy Lodge has the beach and promenade just across the road. The beach and prom are frequented by walkers, runners, dog-walkers, swimmers, windsurfers and paddleboarders for much of the year, providing a fantastic amenity on the doorstep, whatever your requirements. At the top of Hove Street is Church Road high street with its myriad local shops, bars and restaurants as well as a large supermarket. To the east, Hove's mainline railway station and the city of Brighton are within approximately one mile.
