Guide price £600,000 - £650,000. Located in the iconic red brick building of Argus Lofts in the heart of Brighton’s North Laine is this modern two bedroom apartment. Spread over two floors, this home offers luxurious living in a well-sought after area.

The property

Located in the iconic red brick building of Argus Lofts, previously the site of the Evening Argus printworks, is this bespoke two bedroom apartment. Argus Lofts was designed by Sir Terence Conran’s renowned architectural practice and remains today a staple building in the North Laine. Once home to a band member of The Kooks, this abode is so much more than a popstar’s pad. Though still adorned with original features, the internal renovations have added functionality to this stylish space.

A lift takes you to the second floor where you will find a modest front door and entrance hall. Venture to the end of the hall, however, and the space opens up into a spectacular open plan living/dining room and kitchen. A vaulted ceiling spans the height of this two-storey apartment and the central spiral staircase, which leads to the principal bedroom and en-suite, is a work of art in itself. Old meets new in the design of the property, where the original windows (which have since been double glazed) and exposed brick wall are juxtaposed with the sleek modern kitchen.

Two spacious bedrooms sit apart from one another with one on the ground floor and one up the spiral staircase to the enclosed mezzanine. The principal bedroom offers ample built in storage space and has a light and airy feel as a result of its velux window. Clever use of space sees this apartment have a cosy office area, tucked away and hidden in plain sight from the rest of the home. There’s also a pantry to ‘hide the mess’ that doesn’t deserve front of house space in the kitchen.

If you want to move in straight away, all the furnishings can be negotiated with the sale. No onward chain.

What we think

“This stylish apartment wouldn’t be out of place in London or New York with its exposed brick wall and spiral staircase. It has a wonderfully welcoming feel to it, especially in the glow of evening light, and is surprisingly quiet for its central location. We know someone will fall in love with this home.”
