About this property

  • Flat 5 is a ground floor apartment in an elegant yellow-brick Grade II listed Victorian townhouse, ideally located in a sought-after residential road between Hove Lawns and the seafront, and the vibrant Church Road. The flat is brimming with character, having been remodelled and comprehensively refurbished by the current owners to offer a highly-individual home with top-end bespoke fixtures and fittings, carefully designed to maximise the space. Intricately moulded original cornicing, an elegant sash window in the sitting room and soaring ceilings typical of Victorian architecture combine with Italian designer wall paints, a clever lighting system, and high-end bespoke hand painted cabinetry to create a stunning, uniquely-styled property that has an established record as a successful holiday let, or would make an ideal pied-a-terre.

    A secure video entry system allows visitors access to a spacious communal hall, with two shared stores, one locked for bikes, paddle boards etc. Flat 5 is on the ground floor, its front door opening to a private hall fitted with useful bespoke storage cupboards with walnut detailing. The sitting room is at the front of the property, beautifully showcasing the high ceilings and featuring a three-quarter height bay window with plantation shutters. Beyond the sitting room, the bedroom is an equally spacious room, with an internal window bathing it in light.

    The shower room is fully tiled in Italian marble, and is fitted with a modern white suite including a rain shower, bowl basin mounted on a wash stand with deep drawers, a heated mirror and powerful extraction.

    The stunning, superbly appointed kitchen was designed by Andy Stone Bespoke Interiors and is fitted with range of hand painted bespoke cabinetry with walnut detailing, quartz worktops and beautiful three dimensional gold tiled splashbacks; high-end integrated appliances include a Fisher & Paykel induction hob and dish drawer (dishwasher), a Falmec E.ion extractor hood, a boiling and filtered water tap, a Liebherr refrigerator, and a Bosch multi-function oven. An innovative moveable solid walnut and hand painted library ladder system allows access to the higher cupboards and to a cosy mezzanine snug or den.
