DESCRIPTION This stunning, three bedroom penthouse apartment certainly lives up to its address, as Grand it is, comprising the entire top floor of a substantial, red brick Victorian villa situated in a quiet corner of the Avenue. Each room is generously proportioned, and the interior design is exemplary; where only the finest materials have been used to create a contemporary space which blends beautifully with its period exterior. It also boasts an integral entertainment and sound system throughout, which can be controlled remotely via an Apple app; a steam room with shower, and unobstructed sea views from two bedrooms and the living room. There is also a communal garden and the gorgeous lawns of Hove Beach to enjoy, and with such a fine finish this decadent apartment is ideal.
ENTRANCE HALL The scale and depth of the flat is immediately apparent, as your eye is drawn ahead, down a wide walkway and through the kitchen to the far side of the flat. The floor has Sanders and Fink smoked oak wood flooring which flows through the living spaces for continuity. The bedrooms all have plush fawn carpet underfoot, and the walls are a range of Farrow and Ball's natural tones. There is also a communal garden accessed via the east side of the building.
KITCHEN 17' 11" x 8' 11" (5.46m x 2.72m) Returning to the hall, and past a separate WC and a cupboard to house the washing machine, you come to the sleek and contemporary Schuller kitchen. Glossy buttermilk units are topped with Samsung granite worktops, just a shade darker. The chrome Franke sink is inlaid, and the eight ring electric hob and oven are integrated. These are top end Seimans appliances, and also include the dishwasher and fridge freezer which are also integrated, and the splash backs are glass and in dove grey. For a further touch of luxury there is a Quooker hot water tap, so there is no need for a kettle to clutter up your work space, which also forms a breakfast bar so guests can sit and chat with you as you prepare the evening meal.
RECEPTION ROOM 22' 7" x 17' 6" (6.88m x 5.33m) There is an area to the left of the door which is currently used as an office space, and the spacious living room is on the right. The south wall is on trend with exposed brick, and a wide, multi-pane sash window frames the first of the direct sea views. The line follows the lawns and trees to Victoria as she looks out over the sea, and this view is ever changing with the seasons. The new double glazed sash windows and casements with Carlisle Brass furniture are dressed with plantation shutters, and there is another window to the west. The room is heated by a wood burning stove, but also by modern radiator in a tradition style in pewter, and these can be found throughout the apartment for continuity.
In here and throughout the apartment, a pulse Tech Control System has been installed to control the TV, sound system, lighting and heating, and these can all be controlled remotely from your phone - perfect!
MASTER BEDROOM 17' 7" x 15' 3" (5.36m x 4.65m) Next door is the master bedroom which shares the same sunny orientation as the living room, and is just as glamorous. There is ample space for a queen size bed, and there are three built in wardrobes on the left with soft touch doors. A six-foot projector screen descends from above to transform the space into a cinema room, and the Bowers and Wilkins speakers are also subtly inlaid to the ceiling. This room has an en suite bathroom which has large, Italian porcelain tiles on the floors and wall in olive grey and the shallow scoop hand basin is inlaid to a matching vanity unit for toiletries. There is a double walk in shower with a glass door and a large monsoon shower head, and the walls in here are complementary in an iridescent grey mosaic.
