In More Detail
Originally completed in the early 1820s, this distinctive seafront property is thought to be designed by the renowned Busby and Wilds and once formed part of the iconic Clarges Hotel, owned by BAFTA and Laurence Olivier award winner Dora Bryan.
Sympathetically reconverted back into apartments, the original grand white facade of the building with its curved bow windows, Doric columns and stucco detailing is equally matched by the grand proportions of the rooms.
Offering a breath-taking backdrop to a beautifully presented room, the stunning sea views from the full height bay sash windows in the main reception room create an instant wow factor that's hard to ignore. Encompassed by dado rails and period cornicing, the tall ceiling adds to the superb sense of space, while the tall windows allow you to step out onto the private balcony perfectly extending this elegant space still further.
Adding a contemporary twist to this period property, a separate modern kitchen is fully fitted with a wealth of stylish red and white gloss cabinets. Well-appointed with solid wood countertops, an integrated oven and gas hob, there's ample room for additional freestanding appliances.
Equally well-presented, two double bedrooms look out onto the graceful period properties of Bloomsbury Place. Beautifully lit by two tall sash windows, the master bedroom offers plenty of storage within its tastefully fitted wardrobes, while an impressive en suite bathroom features a full size bath along with a contemporary basin and the rich tones of American walnut shelving. Offering ample dual space potential, the second double bedroom enjoys further sea views.
The elegant stone and mosaic tile setting of the en suite bathroom continues in the family shower room where a wet-room shower sits behind a sleek glass screen.
The distinguished floor to ceiling sash windows of the main reception room open onto a curved south-facing balcony complete with classic black iron railings. Providing panoramic sea views, this is an idyllic spot to enjoy evening drinks while you watch the sun set over the horizon.
Bordered by an array of mature palms, shrubs and hedging, a landscaped south-facing garden further extends this private outdoor space allowing you to stretch out in the summer sun.
