WATERSIDE - A rare opportunity to acquire a beautiful Regency townhouse in a landmark position just 150 metres from the seafront. The property forms part of a beautiful Grade II-listed terrace built in circa 1830 to a design by Decimus Burton. Many of the fabulous period features of the era remain, including cast iron balconies, French casement and sash windows, fanlights, pediments and parapets. Where many of the properties have been converted into apartments, number 8 remains as a fabulous townhouse with extensive versatile accommodation over six floors. With its sought-after seafront location, the property also enjoys far reaching views over Hove Lawns and the sea, best views from its superb rooftop terrace – the perfect entertaining space with an adjoining kitchen/family area accessed by bifold doors.
The character features continue throughout, including original fireplaces, ornate plasterwork, stained-glass windows and ceiling roses. The property is beautifully presented throughout with bright, generously proportioned rooms and complementary décor. Commanding high ceilings and wooden floors add to the feeling of grandeur.
The accommodation is generously proportioned, starting on the ground floor with a sitting room, contemporary kitchen and utility room. On the first floor there are a further two reception spaces linked by an archway, in addition to a separate home office and a cloakroom. On the first floor there is an impressive principal bedroom with a dressing room and en suite bathroom; the four further bedrooms are also of a good size and benefit from either an en suite bath or shower room. A fabulous wooden staircase links the upper floors, affording fabulous flow. The top floor is a great family space that is also equally suited to entertaining.
On the lower ground floor there is a self-contained one-bedroom apartment with its own private entrance. The apartment would be well suited to guest or family accommodation or for income potential. There is a generous double bedroom, en suite shower room, cloakroom, store, sitting room and kitchen.
This property is featured by our Waterside department.
