Queens Park Villa, 30 West Drive, Brighton, East Sussex, BN2

Guide price

Bedrooms: 2
A immaculately presented three double bedroom apartment of almost 2000 sq ft, in a prestigious period building which was completely refurbished just 4 years ago, this property truly combines period with contemporary. The building is set way back from the road behind mature gardens, so is wonderfully secluded and quiet. It sits on the north-west corner, right opposite Queen's Park. The apartment occupies the raised lower ground floor position within this striking white stucco Regency building. The property was originally built in 1851 for Charles Freshfield, a prominent lawyer, who lived here for some time when it was known as Pennant Lodge. The building has many attractive character features, including impressive chimneys and a canopied veranda with twisted cast-iron colonette pillars and acanthus leaf detailing. After varied use, the lodge was incorporated into the 'Queens Park Villa' complex in 1985 and later converted to flats.

The flat has its own front door, opening onto a fabulously wide entrance hallway. Internally the property is beautifully presented, with a chic neutral colour scheme that complements the high ceilings and generous room proportions, making the space feel extremely bright and airy. Particularly sizeable are the bedrooms and which are light and bright and with the additional overflow bedroom or study space. The two en suite bathrooms are contemporary and superbly well appointed, whilst the kitchen is another highlight, with abundant storage, premium integrated appliances and a lovely big breakfast bar.

The accommodation comprises entrance hall with storage; open plan 34ft sitting-dining room and kitchen; principal bedroom with walk-in dressing room and en suite Jack & Jill bath/shower room; second bedroom with en suite shower room; third bed/cinema/study room. There is also a useful utility cupboard with sink and space for laundry machines.

Virtual Tour available on request.


The development is accessed via a private road, leading directly off West Drive with marked, allocated parking spaces at the rear. From the sitting room there is a huge glazed door to a wide private paved terrace at the front, enclosed by a low wall with steps leading up to the large, mature garden laid to lawn and stocked with a variety of trees and shrubs which is for communal use but is seldom used as such, so feels exceptionally private and secluded.


West Drive, with its Regency and Victorian architecture, runs directly adjacent to popular Queen's Park, and is within striking distance of the many fabulous shops and cafes of Kemp Town. Situated a little to the east of Brighton city centre, the property is neverthelss within roughly half a mile of the seafront. The cosmopolitan Brighton city centre is also easily accessible and well connected with fast, direct train services leaving from Brighton station (1.1 miles) to London and Gatwick Airport. Highly respected Brighton College is nearby and Roedean School is just a short drive away and many other excellent schools in the local area.
