Ambrose Place, Worthing, BN11
Positioned proudly on the seafront overlooking the beach, central to the bustling town centre, is this wonderfully individual four-bedroom home with contemporary interiors and unique facade.
This abode has a wonderful history being built in 1875 as the Lifeboat House serving Worthing. Over the years the property has evolved to become the prominent home we are offering today with its distinctive turret and gleaming white exterior.
Largely open plan and double height within parts; the ground floor is incredibly spacious with a retained Parquet floor in a rich tone that blends effortlessly with crisp white walls. Careful consideration to lighting creates different zones in which to use the space along with an alcove for a flat screen T.V, exposed brick elements and oversized library shelves with sliding ladder. To the front of the property is a stunning kitchen with a range of wall and base units in grey sporting a quartz stone worktop and breakfast bar. The appliances are integrated for a sleek look and the whole space is lit with natural light from the deep bespoke windows with plantation shutters. The heated flooring within the kitchen is Moroccan style ceramic tiles with a matt finish which brings the whole space together. To the rear of the ground floor is a deep storage cupboard with shelving and plumbing to keep a washing machine hidden away. A second cupboard houses a gas boiler that serves the property with the radiators having thermostatic valves. A neat cloakroom with w.c and basin is handy for guests and there is a superb guest bedroom with a chic hotel feel. The room is a statement with its integrated lighting, exposed brick wall and an open shower room with contemporary fittings, porcelain floor and wall tiles and floor and high-level roof lights and windows along with a range of tall cupboards with hanging rails.
The first-floor landing has painted wooden balustrades and a walkway to a study area with space for a desk and chair. The space is flooded with light from the four Velux windows which highlight the pitched ceiling with painted trusses. There are three bedrooms are individual each with a different aspect, the smallest is a good single, the rear most bedroom a double. A bathroom with a contemporary white suite and ceramic tiling benefits from storage under the basin and effectively is used by the two aforementioned bedrooms. The master bedroom is simply stunning with its double height pitched roof having a Velux window and the unusual feature of your own glazed turret with a door on to a sea facing terrace. A range of sleek wardrobes provide storage with the central 'hidden' door opening in to an en-suite shower room with a white suite comprising of a walk-in shower, w.c and vanity unit mounted basin.
Externally the Lifeboat House has a gated entrance which leads into a south facing courtyard. Established coastal planting has been encased in bespoke containers by a well-known local landscape designer, these are lit as is the decked area to the first floor. New sandstone paving has been laid so that you can enjoy the Sussex sunshine whilst watching the world go by. The first-floor terrace has a handrail and new decking with lots of room and of course benefits from stunning sea views. This is a real opportunity to own a piece of Worthing history which has attracted vast amounts of attention whilst being renovated.
