It looks every bit the period property from the outside, but the inside of this 1930s E. William Palmer-designed art deco property in Brighton, East Sussex is very much contemporary living.
I know that divides opinion instantly, but if you are going down this route, you have to say that it has been done with some style. The agent points out that the current owners were ‘keen to pay homage to the architecture and the era in the restoration’, while ‘original features were retained and restored’. We can’t see too many from the photos, with the execution of the actual structure and the odd wood floor, but a viewing might well clear things up.
Regardless of that, this place does have that ‘interiors magazine’ look, not least because of the enormous kitchen/living entertaining room, which covers the entire width of the house. It also has powder coated aluminium doors which bring the outside space inside (or vice versa). Also on the ground floor is a very modern kitchen, a utility and storage area, a more formal snug / living room and a ground floor guest room, currently used as a cimema room, with its own en-suite.
The first floor has three ‘good size’ double bedrooms. The master to the front of the house has sea views through the new windows, while the two rear bedrooms have access to one of the two large roof terraces. There is also a single room which is currently being used as a study and also has access to the roof terrace, along with a family bathroom.
As we briefly mentioned there, two roof terraces too with sea views and a landscaped established tropical garden with mood lighting at the rear of the property.
The asking price is £650,000.
Big thanks to Claire and Peter for the tip off on this one.
