A substantial Edwardian red brick property with planning consent (pending) for conversion to 4 self-contained flats

A substantial period red brick property that historically served as a prep school but subsequently was converted into flats. It will be sold with vacant possession and planning is pending for the creation of an additional flat in the attic.
The property comes with the benefit of a single garage and driveway for one car.


The property is well situated on the corner of Old Shoreham Road and Montefiore Road, opposite the open green playing fields of BHASVIC. The popular Seven Dials area is within half a mile, with Hove Park a mile away to the west. There are bus routes nearby which run to all parts of the city with the A27 and A23 a short drive away. Brighton railway station is a 0.8 mile walk.


At the time of going to print an amended version of application no. BH2018/02703 for the conversion of the ground floor into 1 x studio and 1 x 1 bedroom flat, a large 2 bedroom family flat on the first floor with private access to the garden, drive and garage, and the conversion of the attic into a 1 bedroom flat, is pending. However, Brighton and Hove Planning Department have indicated they will recommend the scheme for approval, but it will have to go to planning committee to be signed off. Please ask for further details.
