2 Million people in the UK
can see the sea
from an upstairs window
Amazing! And I am one of the lucky ones. When we moved to Brighton sixteen years ago now, there were few houses we could afford. We had a choice of one really, so we bought it. It's a town house within walking distance of a cobble beach, and it was only after we moved in and the grey skies changed to summer blue ones, that we realised we could see the sparkling sea and yachts from our bedroom windows, and hear the motor boats go past with the windows open. We were thrilled with our house, and still are, although the number of stairs is trying for my arthritic knees.
I've been hunting through my old photos and came up with these from when we first moved into the house, but you'll have to forgive the image quality as they are not digital ......
the house itself
the distant sea from the front of the close
....and the view of the sea from one of the rear bedrooms.
Do you consider yourself lucky with the location of your home? Are you one of the two million too?
