Summary
Designed by the architect Richard Seifert and built in the 1960s, Sussex Heights is one of Brighton's most iconic buildings. Considered to be the tallest residential building on the English coast, it sits nestled in the city centre only moments from the beach. Renowned for being 'imposing and prestigious', this landmark building was finished to the highest standards, offering luxury living with spacious soundproofed apartments.

Today, this fifth floor home generates a fabulous quality of life, effortlessly blending contemporary design with original features to retain a fantastic sense of its Modernist heritage. For sale with a share of the freehold, this is a truly special place to live. Unfolding over a commendable 958sq ft, an easy flowing layout is arranged to give stunning sea and city views from each and every one of its main rooms.

Step inside and you'll find a superb central entrance hall that produces a great sense of space and sets the tone for what's to come. Glazed double doors cleverly enhance the stream of natural light and entice you into an enviable lounge/dining room that instantly captures your attention. Beautifully lit by full height windows and wide sliding doors that allow the far-reaching vistas to add the perfect backdrop, the impressive dimensions produce a wonderful place to relax and entertain. The rich dark tones of an outstanding parquet floor add warmth and depth to a soft subtle palette, while a Mid-Century blue accent wall is sympathetically chosen. Giving every excuse to step outside and relax with a morning coffee or enjoy al fresco meals with friends, the sliding doors connect with a brilliantly sized east-facing balcony. Decked and covered, it provides the perfect vantage point to sit back and look out to sea while you escape from the hubbub of the day.

Fully fitted with sleek handle-less cabinets and pale grey countertops, the contemporary kitchen combines style with functionality to give ample storage and workspace. Well-appointed with an integrated oven and hob, its wrap-around layout is peppered with a selection of original 1960s cabinets that add a dash of charm and colour.

The excellent proportions and views are echoed along the hallway in each of the two double bedrooms both of which benefit from wardrobes. Stretching out over a notable 20ft, the wonderfully large main bedroom has a supremely calm and restful feel, while the second bedroom has the versatility to be a great home office if needed. The Modernist detailing continues in the family bathroom, a separate WC is highly convenient for a busy household, and a duo of handy hallway cupboards complete the layout.

Residents of Sussex Heights benefit from a secure entryphone system, concierge service and lifts to all floors, as well as an additional goods lift. For nature lovers, the building is also home to a successful Peregrine Falcon nestbox with a webcam giving live footage of its inhabitants.

In Your Local Area

Sitting tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the city centre whilst still being only a matter of minutes from the shops, coffee bars and restaurants of the Lanes and the Churchill Centre, Sussex Heights towers above St Margaret's Place. Located in the Regency Square conservation area, the beach and seafront are only just around the corner, a mere matter of seconds from the building. Brighton's iconic promenade leads to the i360, Hove Lawns and Rockwater in one direction and the newly opened Shelter Hall, the East Pier and Kemp Town in the other.

The coast road gives easy access to Worthing and the stunning landscape and green open spaces of Devils Dyke and the South Downs are within easy reach by bus, bike or car. Brighton mainline station is approximately only 0.6 miles from your door with fast, direct and regular services to London and beyond.
