TENURE: Share of Freehold
WATERSIDE - Dating from the 1960s, the Abbots apartment building is conveniently location on the corner of Regency Square and the Kings Road. Occupying a sixth-floor position of the landmark building on Brighton seafront, this bright and airy three-bedroom apartment has spectacular views over the seafront, including the promenade, West Pier and the beach, and is situated directly opposite the British Airways i360 attraction.
The apartment is arranged over one level and is accessed via a communal entrance hall on Regency Square, with lift access and videophone entry. The private entrance hall is fitted with useful storage cupboards and leads on to the impressive accommodation via an L-shaped layout, making the floor plan flexible to the needs of families, sharers, downsizers or professionals. A highlight of the apartment is the very generously sized 21ft sitting room, which is open to the adjacent dining room and a glazed winter garden, an enclosed balcony with far-reaching views. At the end of the hall is a fitted kitchen, featuring a variety of wall and base units complemented by quartz work surfaces.
The principal bedroom benefits from an excellent front aspect over the seafront, with lovely views as well as extensive built-in storage. With a convenient layout, the family bathroom and shower room are both central in the apartment, with close proximity to the two additional double bedrooms. The property also benefits from one underground parking space.
Abbotts is an extremely well run small block and is maintained to a high standard. Whilst the heating, hot water, water rates and insurance are incorporated in the overall maintenance charge. The vendor is conscious that at first glance the half yearly maintenance charge may appear to be on the high side, albeit when the aforementioned items are stripped out Abbotts is very much in line with similar blocks. Nevertheless in order to bring the half yearly maintenance charges down to well within charges for other blocks, the vendor is prepared to contribute £1,000 per half year for ten years, which in effect would be allowed for by deduction in the asking price of £20,000.
