HOW would you like to live in one of the grandest streets in the country?

This Grade II* townhouse in Adelaide Crescent in Hove is on sale for £3.75 million.

The development was designed by architect Decimus Burton in the 1830s as an ambitious attempt to rival the Kemp Town estate in east Brighton.

The four bedroom townhouse, which comes with a self-contained one-bedroom apartment, sits in the Brunswick Town Conservation Area close to the seafront, with spectacular ocean views.

The property won a British Heritage award in 2002 for its renovation and is full of Georgian charm, with plenty of period features, from marble fireplaces to large sash windows.

Estate agent Rohan Vines at Savills said: “It presents a rare opportunity to acquire one of the few townhouses that has remained intact since it was designed by Decimus Burton in the 1830s.

“It is a truly outstanding property, having been comprehensively renovated, and the seafront views are breathtaking.”
