PROMINENT PUBLIC HOUSE WITH ALTERNATIVE & MIXED-USE POTENTIAL
The building comprises a particularly attractive bay-windowed three storey plus basement Regency building, benefitting from a number of original features throughout. The ground floor offers a well sized and proportioned horseshoe shaped bar and seating area whilst a large, part naturally lit, basement provides WC facilities along with storage, a kitchen area and cellarage. The two upper floors are currently laid out as residential accommodation and there are sea views across local rooftops from some rear windows with potential to add further windows providing sea views, subject to consents. To the front of the property and included in the freehold ownership, is a mosaic forecourt area providing the opportunity for ample outside seating possibly off-road parking, as permitted.
The property is well located within the popular and aspirational Montpelier suburb of Brighton, partway between the centres of Brighton and Hove. The locale was originally developed in the mid-19th Century and comprises mainly stucco-clad terraced housing and period villas, the property being located within the Montpelier & Clifton Hill Conservation Area.
