Hove Seaside Villas revisited

July 2011
April 2015
No.1 'Millionaires Row', originally the home of the developer Michael Puget Baxter and his wife, has undergone an extensive renovation over the last few years transforming it into a state-of-the-art modern, luxury home. Unfortunately, in the process, it has lost the quirky, castellated roof-line which so instantly signalled its Edwardian origins. Apparently this was on the advice of a planning officer to the architects*. As a result of this the owner now has a building indistinguishable, except for its location, from any of hundreds of other modern houses up and down the country.

Castellations, visible from Kingsway, still remain on the westernmost villas
No.4, also much modified, has recently come on the market for £4M. See Argus report.
