IN MORE DETAIL -
The magnificent communal hallways, original elevator and sweeping staircase of this distinguished mansion block creates an instant wow factor that's hard to ignore.
A spacious living room is the real heart of this central Hove home. Offering a fantastic feeling of height and space, natural light tumbles in through its wall of sash windows highlighting the generous amount of room on offer, while the warmly toned original wood floor creates ample space for both seating and dining areas. Offering far-reaching views across the rooftops of Hove, this beautifully lit space opens onto a separate fully fitted kitchen well-appointed with white Shaker-style cabinets and solid wood countertops. A classic butler sink adds to the charm and character of this Victorian apartment, while heritage blue walls add a splash of colour.
Adding to the great sense of space, three bedrooms offer ideal family accommodation, and whilst two large double bedrooms benefit from ample storage, a single bedroom provides plenty of versatility for those who work from home.
Arranged in a crisp white tile setting, the family bathroom features a full size bath, while a large modern basin offers a contemporary yet sympathetic twist.
Deep hallway cupboards provide plenty of convenient storage space.
