A stunning penthouse apartment in a popular building right in the heart of Brighton’s North Laines, surrounded by the many boutique shops, wine bars and restaurants and just a few hundred metres from the mainline station. Argus Lofts is a sought-after apartment block designed by Conran and Partners on the site of the former Evening Argus printworks, which was redeveloped for residential use in 2001.
Occupying a third-floor position, this spacious property extends to over 1500 square feet and is very well appointed for entertaining, with a spacious roof terrace overlooking the colourful city skyline, a generously proportioned open plan reception room and wiring for Bang and Olufsen multiroom sound. The superb building is very popular with young professionals and has all the desired conveniences, including a passenger lift, a neat communal entrance with discreet bike store, sensor lighting and entryphone access. The apartment also benefits from air conditioning.
The accommodation is well planned and comprises a stylish main reception space with ample room for a dining table and full height and width windows leading to the roof terraces. The kitchen is contemporary in style and includes a number of premium Miele integrated appliances and a feature island. The three bedrooms offer excellent versatility, including a main bedroom with fully fitted dressing room and spa-like en suite shower room, plus access to the terrace. The additional two bedrooms could also work as a study or snug if desired, and there are a further two bath/shower rooms.
Virtual Tour available on request.
The roof terraces span an incredible 1700 sq ft and are certainly some of the largest to be found in the city centre and boast a sunny westerly aspect that allows for lovely views of the sunsets. There is ample space for planting and outdoor furniture, with great entertaining potential.
The Argus Lofts building is perfectly positioned for those who want to fully experience city centre living, being located a short distance from the station at the heart of the North Laines shopping area. Despite its central location the road is quiet and is ideal for those who enjoy the sights and sounds of city living, with the ability to get around easily on foot if desired. Brighton mainline railway station is 0.3 miles and offers direct services to London Bridge and London Victoria. The London Road/A23, with its direct route to Gatwick airport, is also close by, making this property ideally located for anyone wishing to commute beyond Brighton and Hove. Local schools include Windlesham House, Aldrington Primary, Hove Park and Blatchington Mill schools.
