A house with an original Georgian facade that dates back to 1800 is on the market.

The £1.5 million property, named "one of Brighton's most historic buildings", was once two workman's cottages surrounded by farmland before it was turned into one home.

Since then it has undergone transformations while keeping parts of its rich history.

The house in Norfolk Buildings, off Sillwood Street, Brighton, is spread across three floors and has three bedrooms and two bathrooms, one of which has a jacuzzi.

The Argus: The terrace is south-facing

Estate agents Paul Bott and Co say key features are the south-facing roof terrace and the garage.

The Argus: The interior of the house has been modernised over the years

Accessed by four French doors from the drawing room, the terrace comes with in-built lighting and heaters, ideal for outdoor dining.

There is an "evergreen plant wall" that offers extra privacy.

The Argus: The property is on the market for £1.5m

A spokesman for Paul Bott said: "Norfolk Buildings is one of the most historic pockets of the city.

"The facade of this home has stood since 1800, but the interior was completely renovated in 2011 and added to further by its current owners.

"There are three floors of exceptional living space, real garage, and finished with 26ft roof terrace"
