This splendid, Grade II listed Regency townhouse, sits at the western tip of one of Brighton’s most charismatic crescents with ca. 3.5 acres of private gardens, unbeknownst to all but the most savvy Brightonians. The crescent itself was designed and built in 1849 by renowned Brighton architect Amon Henry Wilds.
The Italianate architectural styling makes for gloriously high ceilings, plentiful long sash windows and large spaces. To top it all, this is the only house on the crescent with its very own tower and two gated off-road parking spaces. Its position allows natural light to pour in all day making it a bright, warm and comfortable home to spend time in.
The accommodation itself is abundant and adaptable, spread over four floors and incorporating six bedrooms, two reception spaces, the study/tower room and four bathrooms. The tower room sits at the top of the house, whilst beneath it are three bedrooms, including the master en-suite and another bathroom. The ground floor has a wonderful open hallway which leads to the main sitting room and ground floor study/guest room and bathroom. This ground floor accommodation could work fantastically well as “granny-annexe” space if required or alternatively as a kids’ play room or study.
On the lower floor a recently refitted, bespoke kitchen and dining area provide the second reception space, warmed by underfloor heating and with access outside to the patio, gardens, parking area and street beyond. This floor also houses a bedroom, study, shower-room, cellar and utility hall with storage. The separate exterior access provides the flexibility for the bedroom/study area to be rented out, or as the ideal nanny or carers accommodation.
Outside the pretty, paved and lowered private patio garden is surrounded by scented planting, a fig tree and aged wisteria twisting around the attractive wrought iron balcony and it has its own heated swimming pool. Steps lead up to the extensive communal gardens, accessible only through the houses on Park Crescent. The mature trees and shrubs provide wooded areas abundant with wildlife, secluded shady seating spots to while away the hours with your nose in a good book, kids play areas and open grassy spaces for picnics & BBQs.
This is a rarefied setting; a safe haven for the kids to run wild in straight from the back door, and access to Brighton Station within half a mile; a neighbourly yet private setting; a verdant utopia in the city centre, with the amenities, shops, bars and café’s of the popular North Laine just over half a mile away. Number One Park Crescent is almost certainly the best house on the street, both in its proportions and its flexibility of use. A gorgeous Regency gem in the heart of Brighton!
