Nice to see something modern and appealing, like this John Pardey Architects-designed modernist property in Brighton, East Sussex.
It’s an interesting one because, at first glance, this might well be an older modernist property that has undergone some upgrading. But that isn’t the case. The details here are all new. In fact, this is one of three similar properties on the same site.
But you suspect that nod to the mid-20th century isn’t an accident, especially with so many design classics currently dressing the place.
We love the heavy use of exposed brick, as well as the details in wood (especially around the staircase),the floor to ceiling glazing, the brick fireplace and the the open plan living areas for example.
We’re also quite taken by the exterior, which again has a heavy use of brick as well as some nice pattern going on. Although the headline feature is obviously the ‘timber-clad cube’, which rests on the grey brick frontage for some genuine ‘wow’.
The end result is a ‘slimline silhouette’ at the front, extending back into the site where the main living spaces are. If that’s not enough, the main living room opens out onto a roof terrace at first floor level with a winter roof garden and some rather wonderful views too.
One other notable feature is what’s described as an ‘impressive brick chimney’ which rises up from base of the building to its ‘apex’, anchoring it to the ground. Which is nice to know.
As for space, that seems to be extensive too.
The agent lists this as a five-bedroom property, with four reception rooms, a utility, study, kitchen / diner, media room, family bathroom and WC. he master bedroom also has an en-suite and dressing room, whole the house also has that terrace and roof garden too.
A garage too, plus some outside space and good views, particularly from the terrace area.
£2,250,000 is the asking price.
