Outside, but near to the edge of the Sussex county cricket ground in the heart of Hove, is the sort of apartment that will not only thrill cricket enthusiasts but also anyone who wants cutting edge living by the sea.
Hove has long been prized for its great architecture. The Georgians really put Hove on the map in the Regency period when they flocked to the town – making it a highly fashionable seaside resort. But Hove’s star is shining just as brightly now. With Brighton, Hove was granted city status in 2000. Brighton and Hove Albion Football Club are in the English Premier League and the railway station, which itself is a remarkable piece of industrial architecture, sees regular services to and from London. Separated from the capital by only an hour’s train journey Brighton and Hove has long been regarded as London-on-Sea.
So a stylish duplex penthouse, occupying the third and fourth floors of a luxurious boutique development that is close to the seafront and engages with all of the city’s wonderful amenities and pleasures is totally on trend and in demand by buyers who want the best of both worlds.
Three balconies with sea views connect with the outside and the salt-filled air. Three double bedrooms, three bathrooms and spacious living spaces offer superb accommodation. The gourmet kitchen and high specification fittings throughout are a reminder of the finest luxury hotels.
So, settle into your favourite recliner on the balcony, pour yourself a Pimm’s, watch a few overs and before the umpires have drawn stumps you will realise that this place has hit you for six.
