Sleeps 4. This elegant two bedroom apartment is quietly situated yet minutes from the buzz and action of Britain's most cosmopolitan seaside town.
Occupying the entire ground floor of a listed Regency townhouse (built c 1830) the apartment is located in one of Brighton's prime conservation areas. There are sea views from the front room and the private south-west facing deck provides a tranquil space for relaxing in the afternoon sunshine. The excellent shops, cafes, pubs and restaurants of Kemp Town are moments away and the historic Palace Pier and Brighton Marina are both about a 15 minute walk. Everything is accessible on foot – there is no need for a car in Brighton.
There are four steps from street level to the front door of the apartment, which opens into a hallway with entryphone. To the left is a comfortable, fully carpeted lounge with 3-seater sofa, two armchairs and a dining table in the bay window. The room has high ceilings with ornate cornicing, a grand marble fireplace and features the original wooden shutters that are used instead of curtains. High windows flood the room with morning sunshine and provide an ever-changing view of the ocean, moments away at the bottom of the street.
The kitchen is open plan, with a hardwood counter top, modern fan-assisted oven, gas hob, fridge, toaster, microwave and dishwasher. Here you will find everything to prepare a light snack or a full meal. There is a charcoal BBQ in the garden.
Technology-wise there is free wif-fi, a flat screen HD television, satellite TV, DVD player, digital radio, CD and MP3 players.
The bedrooms and the modern bathroom lead off the hallway where you will also find a utility cupboard which houses the automatic washing machine. Bedroom 1 has a King size double bed, Bedroom 2 has a single bed which converts into a comfortable double bed. Both bedrooms are fully carpeted and look out towards the private deck. The beds have comfortable mattresses, memory pillows and luxury cotton sheets. There is a fitted wardrobe in the main bedroom and hanging space in bedroom 2. There is also a hairdryer.
The family bathroom has a WC, bath with a good shower over, sink with mixer tap, heated towel rail and shaver socket. Large soft towels and bed linen are provided. Towels and linen are changed every 7 days. Constant hot water and central heating are also included.
Brighton is a year-round holiday destination with a reputation for fun and culture. From the stunning heritage of the Royal Pavilion and the Regency architecture to the traditional seaside fun of the famous Palace Pier and pebble beach, it offers something for everyone. The historic Lanes is a fabulous maze of twisting alleyways offering an extraordinary mix of antiques and jewellery shops nestling alongside specialist contemporary and designer boutique fashion. Buskers often liven up the streets, making the Lanes a great place to grab a coffee and soak up the atmosphere to the sounds of some live jazz. Besides its eclectic range of theatres, art galleries and nightclubs Brighton also has more restaurants per head than anywhere outside of London. A major arts festival is held here in May but there is something happening in Brighton every month of the year.
Brighton is the ideal base for exploring the south of England, with its lovely gardens, castles, stately homes and national parks. The county of Sussex boasts numerous theatres and arts festivals, golf courses, horse racing, ancient churches and buildings plus walking and mountain-biking on the beautiful South Downs and in Ashdown Forest.
Central London is easily accessible by train in less than an hour. London Gatwick airport is 30 minutes away by train or taxi, Heathrow airport is about an hour away. The ferry to Dieppe in France is also close by in Newhaven.
Rental cycles are available nearby as well as numerous bus routes. On street parking on nearby Marine Parade costs £5 for 24 hours.

About the owner: I live in north London with my partner and our daughter.
Why the Owner Chose Brighton: I have always enjoyed spending time by the sea and have got to know Brighton very well over the years. This town has it all - vibrant night life, fantastic shopping, a cosmopolitan arts scene and outstanding natural beauty. When I viewed this apartment it was love at first sight, it has real character and is my favourite place to relax and unwind
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment: For me the best thing about this apartment is its tranquil atmosphere. It is a well-proportioned space with high windows and ceilings and is full of sunshine and natural light. It is a wonderful place to escape to, yet only moments from the bohemian delights of Kemp Town and the city center beyond.
