No chain. This strikingly elegant, Grade II * Listed, 3767 sq ft, 4 bedroom, Regency property is one of 14 Townhouses forming part of Royal Crescent, an iconic landmark of significant architectural and historical importance, centrally located within the English city of Brighton and Hove. Superbly oriented towards Brighton beach and within easy walking distance of the fashionable Kemptown with its array of boutique shops, cafés and amenities, Royal Crescent was built in the late 18th and early 19th century. It was the seaside resorts first planned architectural composition, the first built intentionally to face the sea, and is characterised by black glazed mathematical tiles, synonymous with Brighton's 18th-century architecture. Each Townhouse has common stylistic themes. There is a first-floor veranda to every house except number 1, which has a balcony instead. Each south facing veranda has a curved metal roof and cast-iron railings which provides a wonderful outdoor space from which to enjoy the stunning far reaching views over the English Channel. The entrance porches and doorways to each house are considered particularly impressive. The details differ slightly from house to house, but most have open-topped pediments, entablature's, semi-circular fanlights and Tuscan-style pilasters.
