The most expensive house ever in Brighton and Hove was sold this week.
The “ultra-modern” property in Tongdean Avenue in Hove had an asking price of £3.75 million.
It boasts an indoor swimming pool, carriage driveway and a glass staircase covering three floors.
Steve Neocleous, manager at estate agent Mishon Mackay’s Hove branch, valued the property and oversaw the sale.
He said: “We are delighted to confirm that we have sold a property that was on the market for £3.75 million.”
According to data from the Land Registry, no house in the city has ever been sold at a price that high.
The Land Registry keeps a record of all residential property sales, with some exceptions including when a property is not sold for its full market value.
The most expensive registered sale in the city until now is a property on Lewes Crescent which went for £2,858,000 in 2002.
The Tongdean Avenue property sold this week was built in 2012 and went on the market in February. Contracts were exchanged with a local buyer on Monday.
There are 20 interior rooms including six bedrooms.
The plot size is a little over half an acre and the total internal floor area is 672 square metres.
Mr Neocleous said: “The sale shows there is confidence in the market. Across the board we are extremely busy and prices are rising.”
Alex Mackay, Mishon Mackay managing director, said: “The street scene of Tongdean Avenue has changed for the better, creating an eclectic mix of beautiful family homes.”
