Stunning 5 bedroom Regency house in the heart of vibrant Brighton
Why Faye Phillips chose Kemptown
Until the summer of 2015, the Regency Society had nominated 2 Portland Place as one of the most at risk buildings in Brighton and Hove. With peeling paint and a crumbling facade, the house looked unloved and neglected – a fact that could not have been further from the truth. The previous owner, who had actually been born in the house, felt so strongly about it that he chose to take on the labour of love that restoring the building would entail. Sadly, after a decade of meticulous stripping back the project stalled when the sheer scale of the task became overwhelming and the house was put up for sale. It is rare to find a Regency townhouse that has not been converted in to flats and our dream was to continue the renovation in a manner and style befitting such a building and to return it to it's former glory. It's location in the heart of Kemptown village makes it the ideal base for exploring Brighton and it's surroundings or getting your friends and family together for a gathering to remember!

Elegant house for seeing Brighton and the English Channel
This house is an elegant place to stay when visiting Brighton. There is a gorgeous view of the English Channel from the house. The kitchen is very well stocked for preparing meals with plenty of dishes, glasses, pots and pans, and useful modern appliances. There is a ultra modern coffee machine, an electric kettle for boiling water for tea and other amenities in the kitchen. The beds are extremely comfortable and the bathrooms are lovely with showers and old fashioned tubs. Hot water is ample and towels are very thick. The location is a short distance from the Brighton Pier; not too close so there is no unpleasant noise. The area is quiet at night allowing one to sleep peacefully. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this rare, restored English house and thank the owner for her courtesy and kindness.
Lovely stay in great location
Lovely property, clean and well equipped. Great location for the pier and marina. There are a number of great shops and cafes near to the house for breakfast - would recommend the Egg & Spoon. Only consideration for less mobile guests is that 3 or the bedrooms are on the top floor; lots of steps!
Beautiful large property.
We had an amazing stay. The house is gorgeous. We were a large group celebrating a birthday and there was plenty of space. Lots of attention to detail. Short walk to the pier. The only thing that let us down was the weather. Big THANK YOU to Faye, Ian & Jon.
Amazing home to match great location
Could not have picked a better home to rent, Faye the owner is super responsive and home is absolutely perfect with plenty of space and super clean. Great location and overall a wonderful family experience.
Portland Place is a quiet, residential street of grand houses and elegant facades just a stone's throw from the sea. You cannot fail to be charmed by Kemp Town village and it's boutique shopping, quality cafes and fine restaurants.
Just a leisurely stroll will take you to Brighton Marina or Brighton Pier and on in to the city centre. Here you can explore the eclectic Old Lanes and North Laines areas, visit the Royal Pavilion or any of the galleries and museums or simply shop 'til you drop at all of the major high street stores. There are restaurants and bars, pubs and cafes, theatres and comedy clubs galore to keep you entertained during the days and nights.
