A most impressive top floor, three-bedroom apartment of superb proportions boasting circa 1500 square feet situated in the highly sought after, Grade II listed building of Rochester Mansions on Palmeira Square. Built-in the mid-19th century the building itself has a wealth of period features throughout, including a handsome pillared entrance.
The apartment is both grand and welcoming. The central hall leads to all rooms in this wonderful period home. The large reception room, with double aspect views, boasts high ceilings, oak flooring, ornate mouldings and a lovely brick fireplace. On-trend Farrow and Ball colour schemes add to the sense of calm and tranquillity that this room evokes.
There is a bright and airy kitchen with splendid vistas of the sea. The sense of space, again, is further enhanced by the ceiling height and grand feel of the room and there is plenty of space to cook. There are three bedrooms including an exceptional master bedroom with storage and an en-suite shower room, a further double bedroom and a single, which would be equally suited as a study. The apartment also benefits from a lift and entryphone access plus it comes with a share in the freehold.
Rochester Mansions enjoys a desirable setting overlooking the manicured grounds of Palmeira Square on Church Road, within striking distance of the many shops, restaurants and cafes. Western Road is just a little way further and offers a still wider choice of independent shopping and bars. Also within easy reach are the many parks of Regency Brighton, the seafront and its attractions and Brighton city centre. Local schools include Brunswick Primary, Hove Park, Blatchington Mill and Brighton College, with many others available locally.
This home really is the epitome of style and grandeur. In short, not one to be missed!
It's such a special space - the size, the sunshine from morning to evening, the bath and the fabulous vintage lift.
I will miss the fantastic view from the bedroom and window seat most ! It's amazing whatever the weather especially sunsets with distant views of the South Downs and watching the world go by below.
