Description

A masterpiece in history, architecture and interior design located within the heart of Brighton. A reformed church which has been renovated to the highest of standards.

Bringing together the most wonderful mix of both contemporary interior design, whilst containing a wealth of its rich period charm and unique story….

The plot of land was bought for just £735.00 back in the mid 1800’s with building costing and astonishing £800.00…Money was raised from small Protestant congregations in France and people within Brighton’s religious community. It was officially dedicated in 1887 as “The French Protestant Church of Brighton”. – Only one of two of its kind in England.

Designed in a red-brick Gothic style, the church has three pairs of lancet windows, a pointed arch entrance door and a small copper spire on top of the square turret. Furthermore, a time capsule was set into the main stone foundation, containing items associated with Queen Victoria’s Golden Jubilee…Another wonderful item of history within this property.

Weekly Sunday services were held here until its closure in 2008, where it was then sold to our clients, the existing owners of the property. Over the last 10 + years they have carefully restored the church and transformed the building in what we believe to be one of the most spectacular refurbishments we’ve seen…

As you enter through the large church doors, the ornate stain glass in the entrance gives you an immediate sense of grandeur. Walking into the main living area you are instantly marvelled by the sheer size and proportion of this home. The beautiful living room offers a large space to comfortably relax and unwind, whilst taking in the quality in finish of the ground floor. This area is amazing to entertain your guests and the epitome of vast, open living. The original alter, still intact, has since been transformed into a bar area, a great feature if your hosting parties on the weekend. There is also a separate downstairs W/C and shower room tucked away on this level.

One of the most impressive features within the home, is the added exposed steel work and strengthened glass which supports the principle mezzanine level. Glass stairs and balustrade lead to the first floor where you arrive at your bedroom suite. Currently displayed with a large four poster bed, fitted roll top bath and feature stained glass window…You can arrange this level how you wish, however we believe the current staging of this bedroom is perfect. A further feature we also love is the reinforced circular glass in the floor which looks down to the living room below. – A nod to contemporary design, whilst basking in sheer opulence and history.

Leading towards the rear of the property is the private kitchen area, a space where if you like to cook, you can do so in private. Finished in a simple, yet chic white matte, with a light grey stone worktop, there is plenty of surface space and integrated appliances for you to work with. There is also a storage unit and separate access to the main street in the kitchen too, ideal for directly transporting your shopping.

Steps lead down to bedroom two, a sunken and cosy large room. With a fabulous, hotel-esq en-suite shower room and a useful storage area, it gives you a thrilling feeling that you truly could be tucked away anywhere!

Externally, there is the modern style sun-deck which has been added onto the exterior of the building. Again, featuring the common theme of glass, with its balcony surround and lightwell, this is a fantastic place to sit out in with a book, or take your guests after you’ve finished dinner.

Nestled in between some of Brighton’s most popular locations, such as the Metropole hotel, Norfolk Square, the i360 and seafront just ahead of you, this really is unique city central living at it’s finest!

Should you wish to own a fine piece of Brighton’s esteemed history and continue the legacy that this incredible building beholds, then contact us today for more information and arrange your viewing….

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.

For more information on the current mortgage rules and deals, contact your local branch today to arrange an appointment.

Thank you for requesting a valuation.

We will be in touch shortly.
