Property Summary

This grand house was designed by the famous regency architects Amon Wilds and Charles Busby in the early 1800's. Impressive in scale and with a wealth of period features, this substantial property provides considerable accommodation at just over (272.22 sqm) 2,930.15 sq ft. Unusually retained as a substantial period home rather than converted into flats. All front rooms have superb sea views, with views of the South Downs to the rear.

The maisonette is accessed via the communal hallway with stairs leading up to the first floor. To the front is the 24 foot wide Drawing Room which retains its original Regency elegance and splendour with ornate and gilded cornicing, period fireplace, tall sash windows with original shutters and gilded mirrors down to floor level, and access to the Belvedere and balcony, offering the most spectacular sea views. (One of very few properties retaining the Belvedere). The dining room is accessed through the hallway, or via the rear of the drawing room and benefits from high ceilings and large ornate window. To the rear are the kitchen and a bedroom with ensuite bathroom.

On the second and third floors of this large regency property are four double bedrooms, with two family bathrooms. There is a further kitchen on the third floor, which potentially could be converted to a bedroom. At the top of this Regency building is the private roof terrace offering spectacular views along the coast and out to sea. (possible scope for more accommodation like other properties have done close by).

There is a single person private passenger lift between the ground, first and third floors, which is currently not in use.

This grade 1 listed property lends itself to refurbishment to a magnificent period residence or conversion to flats, subject to usual consents.

As part of the Regency Kemp Town Estate, residents are keyholders of the Enclosures - six acres of beautiful secure, gated gardens, with a private tunnel to the beach.
