TENURE: Share of Freehold
WATERSIDE - This beautifully appointed first floor apartment is situated on the corner of one of the most sought-after garden squares in Brighton and Hove, in an important, Regency, Grade II listed building designed by the renowned nineteenth century architect, Decimus Burton - famous for his buildings in Regent's Park, The Athenaeum Club and Hyde Park. Offering a wealth of period details including full balconies on both the southern and eastern aspects of the front room, with panoramic sea views of the coast line and Hove Lawns.
Beyond the impressive communal hallway, a wide staircase leads up to the elegant private front door of the flat itself. Inside, this stylish apartment is a wonderful combination of heritage and contemporary features in a space that is flooded with light throughout. The present owners have modernised it sympathetically and to a "London standard", and the mod cons demanded by today's home-buyers sit comfortably amid glorious Regency splendour.
To the front of the apartment the main reception room offers a dual aspect vista from all the magnificent floor to ceiling French doors. A carved white marble fireplace creates an eye-catching focal point, if one was needed beside the view, whilst the contemporary Bulthaup kitchen floats seamlessley into the rear right hand corner with a raised breakfast bar perfect for entertaining. The entrance hallway leads to the three bedrooms and bathrooms and has impossibly high ceilings, beautifully set off by contemporary lighting. The master bedroom at the far end is a large double and overlooks both Adelaide gardens and the sea and has plenty of hand-built storage, including a superb mezzanine level shower room. Bedroom three in the centre is also a double with similar views and further bespoke fitted cupboards and the guest bathroom just down the hall. The generous second bedroom has another beautifully appointed en-suite shower-room, high-end storage and beautiful, expansive views.
In the centre of the crescent and Palmeira Square beyond are attractive gardens which are a popular spot for relaxing and watching the world go by. At the top of the square Western Road has an abundance of great restaurants, cafes, speciality food shops, and high quality stores including Waitrose and Farrow & Ball, with the theme extending west along Church Road into the thriving heart of Hove.
With the seafront on its doorstep and the city centre and Hove mainline train station within 1 mile, this wonderful apartment offers the perfect balance of modern and Georgian refinement. Another property that offers so much and has had this level of care and attention lavished upon it will be hard, if not impossible, to find.
This property is featured by our Waterside department.
In a stunning location with views towards Hove Lawns and the sea, the apartment is situated in a prestigious residential road of grand period properties in a highly sought-after area close to the seafront.

There are attractive green spaces in the centre of the crescent and within close proximity is Hove Lawns, ideal for walks along the promenade. Western Road is nearby with an array of boutique shops, trendy cafés, bars and restaurants.
