From Studio Flat to Palatial Residence
Apartments in Brighton Marina Village
In between is a large variety of properties. Seafront apartment blocks, Victorian terraces - large and small, Edwardian villas, post-war suburbia. Brighton is built on downland and so is full of hills. Hove is built on the eastern end of the Sussex coastal plain, and so much of seafront and central Hove is level ground. The newer suburban estates of Hove, such as Hangleton, share the hilly nature of Brighton.
In November 2006 the average house price in the city was £205,894 (11.4% up on the previous November). That broke down into £387,309 for the average detached house, £262,682 for the average semi-detached house, and £156,266 for the average flat/maisonette.
The most expensive place on the market in November was an eight bedroom 1920s colonial style mansion which boasted columned entrance, swimming pool, Koi pool, roof terrace, conservatory, balconies, summer house, etc. Asking price: £3,950,000.
At the upper end of the much proclaimed urban renaissance, there is for sale in January of this year a fine 6 bedroom Grade II listed Regency house on the seafront, which has been beautifully renovated. It boasts an impressive marble columned entrance hall, an elegant staircase, a fine drawing room, and a very impressive galleried library and billiard room. Of course, you also get spectacular views of the sea along a 93 foot frontage. And there is a lower ground floor flat for the staff. (We don't use the word 'servant' these days.) It has a guide price of £3,000,000.
