A truly spectacular, first floor, seafront apartment situated in a highly exclusive Regency style Kemp Town residence.

A rare opportunity to purchase this peaceful apartment in a well maintained building with lift access and balcony overlooking the sea.

Built sometime between 1824-1828, Arundel Terrace forms a much bolder architectural statement of the renowned Thomas Read Kemp than any other part of this estate. Designed by Amon Wilds and Charles Augustin Busby, its conspicuous Corinthian pillars and slightly projecting central house still today, bears all the hallmarks of a grand design.

Arundel House as we now know it, was originally a hotel used by Thomas Kemp to launch his building project for Kemptown seafront in November 1826 as part of his vision for these grand designs. These elegant grade one listed homes which are part of our English heritage are often referred to as Belgravia by the sea.

As you enter the building through the vast front door, it is visible immediately that this premises holds intricate and boldly scaled entablature and cornice in the entrance hall and through to the lobby area where a grand sweeping staircase takes you up to the first floor.

Stepping into the apartment itself, the grandeur of high ceilings and period features sets the tone for the rest of the space.

The open-plan living room and kitchen are welcoming and spacious, with daylight streaming in through two large sash windows one of which gives access out onto a generous balcony which offers tranquil views of the English Channel.

Along the hallway you will find a large storage cupboard, bedrooms two and three, both of which are doubles, as well as a family bathroom. Towards the end of the spacious hall is the generously sized master bedroom which has a full sized en-suite bathroom.

This exceptional home also enjoys exclusive access to the gated Kemp Town Garden Enclosures, a wonderful 5 acre garden in a spectacular seaside setting combining formal planting, open lawns, meadows, winding paths, herbaceous borders, shaded woodland and even a tunnel that leads to the beach. Lewis Carroll once lived here and was thought to take inspiration for his much loved book 'Alice in Wonderland' from these gardens.

Kemp Town village is a short walk away offering an array of boutique shops, cafes and eateries. Also close by are the facilities of Brighton marina with waterside dining, cinema and a David Lloyd health club. There are excellent schools locally including Brighton College and Roedean School.

The property is located at the seafront just a short walking distance to Brighton Pier and Soho House which is Brightons newest private members club. Sea Lanes open air swimming by the sea has recently opened nearby along with new seafront bars and coffee shops the area is thriving with millions having been spent on the rejuvenation of the Black Rock area. The area is well served by the city's buses and it is a short trip to Brighton mainline train station.
