The building is striking from the onset with the front having been redecorated late 2019. Originally a school in 1890's, this grand double fronted building houses the apartment occupying the entire ground floor.
As you enter the apartment you are greeted by a welcoming hallway with wood panelled walls and generous coat hanging space. The reception area has been opened up to create a huge light room, ideal for entertaining, the current owners love socialising with family and friends, and this area has been designed with this in mind. The decorative ceiling to the front with cornicing is jaw dropping, with a statement chandelier perfectly echoing the ornate period mirror above the marble fireplace, both could stay subject to circumstance.
Wood floor with sound proofing underlay flows through this reception area. In the spectacular kitchen is a second marble fireplace, a lovely feature which the grey cabinets are designed around. The work top and breakfast bar are a matt granite so hard wearing, ideal for a budding chef, as is the Smeg five ring induction hob. Opposite is the Smeg double oven and built-in combination microwave and pull out larder cupboards. A large 3/4 window with window seat looks out to the landscaped west facing garden.
The property continues along the hallway with large loft storage, past the under stairs storage cupboard to the family bathroom. A stunning room with walk-in shower and rainfall shower head at one end. Beautiful grey bathroom furniture topped with Corian surface has an integrated WC and sink with vanity draws under. A large bath sits at the other end of the room and is fantastic for lazy soaks.
At the end of the hallway is the utility room, with stainless steel sink and space for a washer dryer, as well as an integrated drinks fridge. A stable door leads out to the garden's raised terrace where the last of the evening sun can be enjoyed.
The other side of the apartment, through an exposed brick arch 'The North Wing' is all about being peaceful and quiet, as it has the three double bedrooms, all with built-in wardrobes. The master to the front of the building is exceptionally large with a feature fireplace, and built-in cabinets either side. Behind wardrobe doors is a kitchenette. Designed so it can be let out as an Airbnb to generate extra income when family and friends are not visiting.
Next door, past a further cupboard is another bathroom. The third bedroom is tranquil it has a floor to ceiling sash window which leads to a balcony and has access to its own shower room with WC. At the rear is the second bedroom with French doors to the garden, an extremely peaceful and tranquil room with built-in wardrobes and fitted shelving.
One of the largest gardens in Kemp Town measuring 40'8 x 27'7, it has been landscaped in the last year with raised beds built up by sleepers with mature rose bushes and shrubs. The garden is west facing so benefits from uninterrupted sunshine all day long. Well established Honeysuckle and Jasmine adds scent to the garden, especially enjoyable on a summers evening. There is a recently built wooden garden room with Sedum roof and period decorative doors. A smaller stone potting shed next door, houses the garden tools and a very convenient back access via the wide garden gate leads on to Sudeley Place.
