Before looking at the best locations in Brighton to buy property, the first thing you need to consider is the kind of property you are looking for and, of course, it’s ultimate use. Are you looking for a single-family detached home or are you in mind of finding a flat in what is considered the “Bohemian” area of Brighton? Perhaps you are looking for a commercial property where you can open a shop or restaurant and then again, maybe you are looking for ‘buy to let’ properties simply because of the nature of this amazing seaside resort area. In any case, you probably should contact conveyancing solicitors in Brighton even before looking at what is available. In the meantime, here is some of what you might want to know about the area.
A Popular and Very Busy Seaside Resort
Just about an hour to the south of London, Brighton is a very busy place for holiday goers from literally all over the world. Those who want to visit London but don’t actually want to stay in a city quite as large, often book lodgings in Brighton so that they can enjoy the shore but take a train to the city on a moment’s whim. If you are looking for a holiday self-catering home or flat, this would be the perfect place to buy property. However, which area of Brighton would best suit your needs?
Three Areas of Interest
When looking for the right property in Brighton/Hove, there are actually three areas which strike the most interest. Whether you are looking for investment properties or a lovely dwelling for yourself and your family, most conveyancing solicitors and estate agents suggest Kempton, Preston Park, or The Lanes. Each area has something attractive to buyers, so perhaps it would be wise to take a day trip to Brighton to view each of the areas.
If you are at all familiar with the area, you may have heard that Kempton wasn’t really the nicest area of town. However, massive renovations have restored much of the area and now Kempton is home to a number of trendy pubs and boutiques. This is an area for the younger crowd, so if you are looking to cater to holiday goers, Kempton may be your best bet.
If you are looking for a lovely backdrop to your property, the more than 60 acres of Preston Park is where you’ll find what you are looking for. Although a lovely spot to live, this wouldn’t make for an ideal holiday property, but it would make for an ideal location to settle down amidst the natural beauty of the area.
Being close to the beach, The Lanes is composed of narrow alleyways and streets where you’ll find an abundance of shops. If you are looking for commercial property or an area for buy to let storefront, this Bohemian neighbourhood is the perfect solution. With a high amount of seasonal traffic, shops do well in this part of town.
In close proximity to the nation’s capital and the allure of the seashore, any location in Brighton may have exactly what you are looking for. Take the time to scout about, contact a conveyancing solicitor and, before you know it, you’ll be the proud owner of prime real estate in Brighton.
