Gwydyr Mansions, Hove – Property of the Month

Front

One of Brighton and Hove’s landmarks, Gwydyr Mansions was built circa 1890 in a Flemish-Renaissance style designed by the town’s iconic architecture firm of the era, Clayton & Black. Considered, at the time, to be in an area in which “a certain gentility prevails” and built to reflect the social status of the expectant wealthy occupants, to walk into this building is to revisit a decadent period of design and lifestyle. Exuding splendour and retaining the glorious details that have remained since its conception, Gwydyr Mansions is, to this day, a focus point of the city’s stylish architectural heritage.

In simpler terms, this property just makes you feel special. It’s a step back in time when you enter the communal areas – and not in a dated way – there is a style and sophistication that we are unlikely to see in any of today’s modern boxes. The flat itself requires modernisation but the potential is huge in this spacious home. Three large bedrooms, three bathrooms, two substantial reception rooms and a utility room. With the right imagination this will be someone’s dream seaside home.
