**GUIDE PRICE: £460,000 – £475,000**
This Victorian period property is perfectly positioned within a highly desirable location which is ideal for both your everyday commuters as well as those looking to enjoy a combination of a city lifestyle whilst also benefiting from the green and leafy perks that Preston Park has to offer. Being directly across from the park itself offers you a sense of community feel as well as access to all the amenities and activities that the park has available.
Being instantly greeted by a building with proper curb appeal is one thing, but to have a share of the freehold along with two other owners who are proud of the building and have each invested their time in ensuring the building is looking its best is hard to find at times. The communal areas – whilst neat and tidy – are also only shared with one other property, ensuring the footfall through to the apartment is kept to a minimum.
Stepping on through, you are instantly greeted by a bright and airy stairwell which leads you up a cozy third bedroom with a wardrobe and chest of drawers which can accommodate a single bed or potentially be used as an private office or studio. Neighbouring to the bedroom you have the separate W/C which forever helps increase the continuous practicality of the apartment.
Heading up further onto the first floor, you are greeted by the kitchen & breakfast room which offers both ample amounts of storage as well as a bright & inviting southerly aspect which goes hand in hand with the impressive high ceilings. The kitchen itself has been topped off with sleek and contemporary units throughout. Integrated within the kitchen you have various appliances such as the dishwasher, fridge freezer as well as a fan assisted oven and induction hob. Utility wise you have the double China sink and chrome tap combo as well as the collection of hardwearing worktops and white wall tiles.
Carrying on through towards the front of the apartment you have the light and spacious living room which boasts restored sash windows which help flood the room with plenty of natural light and furthermore increase the overall breathability within the Preston Park pad. The room itself is accompanied with bountiful amounts of space, storage and overall flexibility. It’s also a room allows you the freedom to play around with the layout every so often if you were keen for a change of scenery. The room is ultimately completed with solid wooden flooring, double-height ceiling and a jaw-dropping original ceiling rose.
The sweeping staircase with double height ceiling leads you up to the roof terrace which is accessed through doubled glazed window framed doors. The terrace itself is an absolute sun trap with a south-west aspect which offers glorious amounts of sunlight more of less all day given the openness at the back.
Heading up even higher, you have the landing area which has a generous amount of solid wooden floor to ceiling cupboards which are ideal for additional storage. You also have access to the fully boarded and lit loft space which is accessible via a pull-down loft ladder.
On the top floor, you have the family bathroom which has been finished with the upmost amount of style and class. The built-in wooden storage is not only able to accommodate for storage, but it also houses the integrated washer/dryer. The walk-in shower has been topped off with chrome fittings and glass surround and following on from the theme throughout the home, you are greeted to a white China sink with chrome fittings, as well as contemporary tiled flooring and a wall mounted radiator. The pièce de resistance in this room however is the underfloor heating, an absolute dream during the winter period.
Both bedrooms offer an extremely generous amount of space and although the “smaller” of the two, the second bedroom boasts green and leafy rooftop views across Preston Park through the double-glazed windows at the front as well as generous dimensions throughout.
The master bedroom is positioned towards the rear of the building so offers not only ultimate tranquillity but also an impressive amount of storage within the built-in cupboards. The bedroom also currently has enough space to cater for the current owners’ American super king bed, an eye-watering 6-foot x 6.5-foot and still plenty of space to play around with even afterwards.
For families, the property is within the catchment area for some truly outstanding schools in Brighton. The property really is ready to go and the attention to detail is second to none. Having the option of both Preston Park station as well as Brighton Station makes the location a commuters dream and having the park just across the other side of the road means you really are first in line to enjoy the amenities and delights that the park has to offer.
All in all, a truly remarkable apartment that would certainly cater for a whole plethora of buyers.

Finding a mortgage
Buying a house is a massive investment and getting it just slightly wrong can be costly. Unless you have big savings, chances are you’re going to have to get a mortgage. It’s a loan secured against the property which means if you can’t meet the repayments the lender may repossess your home and sell it to get their money back.
The better you understand mortgages and everything to do with them, the better armed you will be to get the very best deal. With MMR in place, you’ll need to review your finances themselves before approaching possible lenders to see whether you can afford the monthly payments now and if interest rates go up, which they will…
What is MMR?
When it comes to finding a mortgage you have several options: mortgage brokers, individual banks or searching online. Again, it’s important to do your research. Searching online first, gives you a good idea of what’s available, but an independent mortgage broker can provide a more in-depth search and help you through the process. Being independent holds great value as they are not bias to any particular lenders or deals, they will give you their honest opinion and take away the stress of working your way through the mortgage market, they work for you to find you the best package to suit your requirements.
