A beautifully finished three-bedroom penthouse apartment just 0.7 miles from Preston Park mainline station, with balcony overlooking Withdean Park.
Occupying a fifth-floor position in this popular block, the accommodation is bright and spacious with wraparound balcony and fabulous 360-degree views of the park and South Downs. The penthouse is positioned at the rear of the building and has the added benefit of a garage, entryphone access, a lift and a well-maintained communal hallway.
The property extends to a generous 1052 sq ft with a mostly open plan living space. First impressions are excellent with a glass brick wall and double doors providing a view from the entry hall through the living room to the far-reaching views beyond. The living space is ideal for entertaining with two sets of sliding doors opening to the balconies. The contemporary kitchen is open but is tucked into a large corner and is well equipped with integrated appliances.
There are three bedrooms, two of which are doubles and all of which feature built-in storage, with the master bedroom also having an en suite shower room and sliding doors to a further balcony. A well-appointed family bathroom completes the accommodation.
