IN MORE DETAIL -
From the grand Corinthian pillars at the buildings entrance, with its monochrome tiled path and black iron railings, to the full height windows and French doors with their exceptional direct south-facing sea views, this first floor home offers a fantastic example of a contemporary lifestyle within the grandeur of a period property.
Adding a beautiful backdrop to a generously proportioned room, the stunning direct sea views from the floor to ceiling windows in the open plan kitchen/living room create an instant wow factor that's hard to ignore. A gentle grey and white colour scheme balances with the warm tones of original wood floors while the lovely flow of natural light highlights the distinguished fireplace with its marble mantelpiece and the elegant period cornicing bordering the high ceiling. French doors open onto the enclosed south-facing balcony, perfectly extending this sociable space still further.
Fully-fitted with modern beech cabinets, the kitchen area adds a contemporary yet sympathetic twist to this open plan space. Fully fitted with an integrated fridge-freezer and a range cooker, sleek black countertops wrap around to provide a convenient breakfast bar.
Continuing the refined presentation, stairs lead up to a mezzanine master bedroom where deep recessed cupboards offer ample storage without encroaching on the floor space. Adding to the sense of space with panoramic views of its own stretching up to the South Downs, a second bedroom offers plenty of dual space potential as a study or dressing room while its distinguished period fireplace further reminds you of the original charm and character that this seafront home has to offer.
Creating an idyllic spot to watch the world go by, the French doors of the spacious open plan kitchen/living room open onto an enclosed balcony whose direct sea views stretch along the coastline. A beautiful stained glass window and a monochrome Victorian tiled floor add a feeling of elegance to a south-facing space thats perfect for enjoying the sunsets and relaxing with the weekend papers.
