APARTMENT blocks may not always look very homely from the outside but this one has a cosy four-bedroom home right in the heart of the city.

It is currently the most expensive property in Brighton - on the market with a guide price of £1,995,000.

The luxury New York apartment in Vine Street was built in a former warehouse which was refurbished to produce stunning places to live.

Hamptons International has listed the pad on Zoopla.

Taking its cue from the post-industrial chic look championed by the loft apartments of downtown New York, the accommodation at Vine Street Studios is designed to be as versatile as it is comfortable with the use of finishes, furnishings and fittings that are set up to surprise, inspire and delight.

It includes a huge living space, four bedrooms, three bathrooms and a self-contained annexe.

The description states: “Open plan and characterised by exposed steel beams, oak floors, large Crittall style windows and by walls either clad in oak or finished in raw white plaster, the approximately 900 sq ft space includes a floating staircase.

“Beautifully lit, relaxed and very cool, it’s an extraordinary space, its penchant for cutting edge design epitomised by the attached shower and wash room, a state-of-the-art fibreglass shell, and by its kitchen area, the unit’s oxidised metal sheeting superbly judged.”

Equally fine, situated on the top floor, off a naturally lit corridor, and accessed by way of the above mentioned floating staircase, the bedrooms run the length of the building. There are three standard sized rooms and one master bedroom.

The ground floor is the Italian restaurant and bar Cin Cin. A boutique tattoo studio operates next door. The third studio is due to start trading as a micro-brewery cafe, the advert states.
