A super interesting transformation of a neglected Brighton home which so easily could have been lost to subdivision10 years ago but instead has undergone a renovation/extension of enormity in every aspect. Though at its core it’s a different building altogether, the high-end architects employed by the vendors demonstrate their savvy to utilise the classic 1950s skillion-roofline as the primary character reference and even more remarkably retained the cream brick (praise be!). The pool and stone paving has remained, as it always was, c’est magnifique and this home in the whole now presents as supremely flash, contemporary Brighton abode which cleverly straddles the duel concerns of paying homage to its heritage whilst continuing in the socio-economic expectations of the area and market.
