There are two entrances to this substantial and stunning Grade II Listed house; the lower entrance leads to a self-contained lower ground floor apartment and the raised ground floor entrance to the main residence via broad marble steps which hints at what a majestic house this is. A sweeping front drive offers ample parking outside.
The impressive entrance hall with its detailed wood panelled walls is exceptionally warm and welcoming with midnight blue painted stair treads and spindles, off set with a rich warm yellow stair runner and polished dark wood banister. The Karndean wood floor with its herringbone design and brass strip inlay match the brass light fittings in the hall.
The two rooms to the left, with their high ceilings and two large sash windows with sea views, have been opened to create a superb entertaining space. The bespoke fitted kitchen at the rear with solid wood larder cupboard provides excellent storage and a built-in dishwasher, all covered by a stunning Calacutta Gold Quartz worktop and back stand. All the stylish door furniture, extractor fan and light fittings have the brass finish which co-ordinates with the brass mirror over the feature marble fireplace in the dining room.
Along the hall with a pretty internal window from the kitchen, which serves as a handy hatch, and past the under stairs utility cupboards which hide the washing machine and tumble dryer is the TV snug. This cosy room with Karndean flooring and old school radiator leads to the renovated conservatory, which boasts Victorian Adam geometric 3D design floor tiles and door out to the landscaped rear garden with its two terraces.
The terraces are ideal for alfresco dining with space for a large table and as the evening closes in the redbrick wall is light up to create an impressive architectural feature, softened by built up flower beds, one of which is currently a herb garden. To the rear of the garden is a Tiger Turf Advantage Pro Astro, ideal for tennis, cricket and as a putting green. The garden, from the black painted railings, to the rear wall spans an impressive 75ft.
Back inside up the stairs on the half landing is a quiet and tranquil study or therapy room, with window overlooking the expansive rear garden. A green porcelain sink with traditional brass mixer tap is mounted on Carrara marble surface with a cabinet, wine cooler and fridge, providing facilities, as well as a cloakroom with WC.
On up to the first floor, an opulent room with decorative cornicing and picture rails, ceiling roses with twin chandeliers and two new feature fireplaces with coordinating mirrors. This room has undergone an incredible transformation with the lounge opened out as originally intended. Three floor to ceiling sash windows lead out to the curved balcony, a spectacular spot to take in the panoramic sea views. This room is finished off with warm varnished stripped wood herring bone laid floor.
On the second floor a master suite has been created with en-suite facilities and dressing room. A jaw dropping room, with sea views, the main feature is the freestanding copper bath on the raised plinth under the window, where lazy soaks can be had whilst enjoying the sea views through shutter adorned sash windows. In the en-suite dressing room with three tall double wardrobes the Carrara marble floor and wall tiles continue the luxurious feeling. The twin sinks under the copper smoked glass mirror, traditional high-level WC and tall heated towel rail are all adorned with copper fittings. At the rear is a quadrant shower and a large sash window allows light to stream in.
As you rise to the third floor on the half landing is a family bathroom, with traditional fittings in keeping with the period style. A table top marble sink sits atop the Carrara marble vanity with miter tap, and a full length bath allows for lazy soaks. The floor and part tiled walls are in Carrara marble to finish of this room.
On up to the third floor are two bedrooms with sash windows, dressed with shutters, either enjoying majestic sea views to the front or the rear bedroom enjoys peaceful views over Kemp Town Village.
