Marine Parade, Brighton, , BN2 Price: £850,000   ShareFreehold

Property Ref: 390

A rare opportunity to acquire a Maisonette spanning the first and second floors of this beautiful Regency building. Located on Marine Parade, a fantastic Seafront location, a short walk from the City Centre, Kemptown Village is around the corner with its eclectic mix of shops, boutiques, bars and restaurants. The property enjoys stunning uninterrupted direct Sea and Coastal Views.
The accommodation is extremely versatile and lends itself to a variety of different layouts inside.
On the first floor, there are Two double bedrooms, family bathroom, shower room, spacious kitchen/breakfast room and a spectacular Drawing Room with an abundance of period features including a marble fireplace, ornate ceiling cornicing, high skirting boards, original window shutters and wonderful sash bow windows giving a glorious Sea view and access to a Belvedere balcony.
During the vendors ownership, decoration works to this room unearthed the stupendous wall mural that spans the entire East wall.
Extensive research was carried out and from the signature on the piece, it points to the Artwork having been carried out by J A Mckechnie (1815-1874) around 1841, perhaps 1847.
The scene is of Virginia Waters near Windsor and depicts the Royal State Barge passing the Chinese Fishing Temple.
Restoration and preservation works have been carried out and an acrylic varnish applied to further protect the piece. More details of the artwork and the restoration is held on file for perusal.
On the second floor, there is a bathroom, a double bedroom and 23' front facing reception room with again a fabulous direct Sea View and access to another Balcony.
This space would be suitable for a variety of different uses or can be another bedroom, giving a combined four bedrooms for the property.
These two floors are inter-connected via a Spiral staircase from the Kitchen/breakfast room.
In addition, there are 3 access points from the communal staircase, two on the first floor and one on the second floor, meaning these two floors can be used independently, lending itself to possibly creating two separate self-contained flats, subject to the necessary permissions, or perhaps a Home/income layout, being a very attractive location for Holiday Let demand.
Outside there are two private car parking spaces as well as a floor anchor for motorbike security and a communal storage/cycle store.
Certain updating is now required within the property which means any buyer can apply their own flair to make it an even more wonderful abode.
There is a Share of Freehold of the building. The property also benefits from No Forward Chain.
