Located in one of Brighton’s most interesting residential areas, Old School House is just a stone’s throw from both the popular area of "Seven Dials" and the exciting Brighton seafront and less than 1 kilometre to Brighton railway station with direct trains to Gatwick, London Victoria and London Bridge.
It is surrounded by historic period terraces giving the area the character which epitomises Brighton architecture.
There are many local amenities including a multitude of restaurants, bars and entertainment venues. The Seven Dials is full of small independent stores whilst the nearby Churchill Square shopping centre and Brighton’s Laines offers a unique shopping experience from high street stores through to chic boutiques.
The City of Brighton offers a vibrant cosmopolitan lifestyle – whether you are looking for the latest sounds in music or prefer classical music, alternative comedy or pre West End plays.
The Old School House was built in the early 20th Century and from 1950 until recently was a dining hall and boarding house attached to the famous Brighton & Hove High School in Temple Gardens.
It contains many graceful Lutyens-inspired features.
Features include delicate herringbone brickwork and floor-tiles, traditional casement windows with leaded lights and an elegantly proportioned solid oak dog-leg staircase with tapered carved newel posts and slender spindles.
Sophie Curtis Contemporary Homes has created just six light filled apartments, each with a unique character, and ranging in size from one bedroom to three bedrooms.
Each have their own individual character. For example, the lower ground floor apartment, with three bedrooms, was once the school dining hall and still has the original oak parquet flooring and a vast fireplace which once housed a kitchen range.
The interiors have been carefully renovated to provide practical and stylish living accommodation, designed for 21st Century living.
All the kitchens have Paula Rosa kitchens with quality integrated appliances.
The contemporary style bathrooms stand out from the crowd for their aesthetically pleasing design.
Much time has been taken to ensure that the specification exceeds expectations – thus creating some of the most desirable homes in the area.
Highlight features include:
• Paula Rosa designer kitchens with range of AEG and Electrolux appliances
• Gas central heating
• Specially imported polished porcelain tiles
• Ample power, TV and telephone points finished in satin chrome
• Luxury bathrooms including Hansgrohe Starck and Jado fittings, Laufen white suites and Utopia built-in furniture
• American black walnut internal doors with satin chrome designer fittings
• Colour video entry system
