An impressive and versatile apartment of 1,345 sq ft arranged over 3 floors including the West Tower enjoying one of the best views across Sussex and along the South Downs. The property forms one of the most iconic parts of this Grade II listed former Victorian hospital which was converted into apartments, cottages and town houses in the late 1990s. The present owner bought the property in 2010 when we believe the kitchen and both bathrooms were replaced. The apartment is presented in neutral decorative order throughout and we understand the exterior part of the building is to be redecorated in 2022. The accommodation is arranged over 2/3 levels and a lift service rises from the ground floor to the second floor where there is a large reception hall/dining room, the kitchen which was refitted with a modern range of units, black granite worktops and some integrated appliances, a main bedroom with en-suite shower room enjoying views, a 2nd double bedroom and beautifully refitted family bathroom. From the entrance hall, a staircase rises to a mid level where there are two useful rooms although these have restricted ceiling height of around 5'6" and are ideal for use as a study, cinema/TV room and/or store areas. The staircase then continues up to the living room which is in the main tower and has very high ceilings and tall sash windows on three sides taking full advantage of the quite spectacular view across Sussex and along the South Downs. Residents have use of the extensive formal gardens which have several seating areas, a dedicated barbecue area which can be booked for private functions, a state of the art gymnasium which is actually located in the basement several floors below the apartment, the services of the friendly concierge and the service charge also includes both waste and domestic water rates. Within the campus there is a privately run 18 meter indoor swimming pool, tennis courts, Bowls club, sports fields and St Francis Social Club which the locals regard as their pub. There is an allocated parking space (No. 56) located on the north side of the building. There are plenty of visitors' spaces but a permit is always required.
