1 Bed Apartment, Vernon Gardens, Brighton for Sale

Own a little piece of Brighton history.

Brighton is a town well-known for historical firsts, from hosting the 1974 Eurovision Song Contest where ABBA got their first win, to being the home of the UK’s first The Body Shop store.

But did you know that Brighton Girls School – formerly Brighton and Hove High School – was one of the first schools of its kind to open in England back in the 1800s?

This one-bedroom first floor apartment in Vernon Gardens actually formed part of the original school building, which was built in 1876.

Many of its original features still remain, including its stunning bow windows and the original staircase in the entrance hall.

Spanning almost 500sq ft, the apartment sits in just the right spot for frequenting local shops and 7 dials eateries within just a few minutes.

You won’t need to worry about any renovation work or redecorating, but the neutral décor throughout does work well as a blank canvas if you did want to add your own touches.

Entering the property, the hallway leads into a large open-plan kitchen/dining and living space, with year-round streams of sunlight thanks to the beautiful six-pane bow window.

The open plan space lends itself perfectly to entertaining. There’s plenty of room for seating in the living room, and the kitchen makes cooking a breeze with an integrated AEG oven, AEG microwave and ceramic four-ring hob. When the gathering is over, a dishwasher will make quick work of the washing up and your guests will leave happy after spending time with you around an impressive central island.

The double bedroom is also accessed from the hallway, and this room was originally used as a bedroom for the pupils of Brighton and Hove High School. Although there were fewer than 20 pupils in 1876 – now there are more than 600, so it’s not quite big enough to accommodate them all anymore! A double bed, bedside tables and double wardrobes fit in here comfortably with room to move. But if you would like some extra storage space, the bedroom benefits from a walk-in closet – perfect for all your clothing storage needs.

The en-suite bathroom is accessed through the bedroom and includes a WC and bath with an overhead shower unit.

This apartment is offered with a share of the freehold, a very rare thing, so we’re not expecting to hang around for long, so don’t delay. Call our office today to book your viewing before someone else snaps it up.
