A beautifully renovated three-bedroom flat on the ground floor of a handsome, historic red-brick in Hove, close to the water’s edge.
Osborne Villas, Hove, 3 Bed. Flat
Situated in the heart of desirable Hove, this light filled apartment feels calm and serene the moment you step through the front door. New life has been lovingly breathed into the beautiful old bones of this historic building by the current owners, with a soft palette of muted tones and natural materials throughout.
Original features are in abundance with stripped wood floors, well preserved architectural detailing and floor to ceiling bay windows in both the living room and main bedroom. The modernised bathroom retains all the charm of a period property whilst the new shaker-style eat-in kitchen oozes paired back style.
The third bedroom is currently being used as a study, but has the proportions to house a double or single bed set-up equally well. And whether you are looking for stylish family living or a fuss-free flat-share there are amenities to suit both just steps away from the front door.

THE OWNERS SAY
Pretty much everything is just on the doorstep and for nearly 20 years, our family have counted ourselves super lucky to be a part of such a lovely neighbourhood. Just a stone’s throw from the independent shops, restaurants and bars of Church Road, as well as a short stroll from the water front itself, it couldn’t be a better balance of hubbub and fresh sea air.
We have loved refurbishing our beautiful red-brick apartment to pass onto new owners to enjoy as much as we have for years to come.
