Renovating a Listed Building

hove, east sussex

This stunning Hove seafront period property has been renovated within strict limitations of its listed status. While working on listed buildings generally takes patience, stamina and doing your homework before starting, the results can be extremely rewarding.

Internal rearrangement and demolition of non-original internal walls allowed for the creation of a large, open plan lounge and living area. Both the kitchen and bathroom were re-imagined to a high specification. Reinstated period sash windows and a new set of French doors opening onto an enclosed terrace significantly upgraded the spaces.

The main living area balances period charm with a contemporary style. The original Regency features synonymous with Brighton and Hove are beautifully maintained and restored within the listed guidelines. The owner’s homely and minimalist style with local and South East Asian influences completes the picture to create the home they were looking for.
