Whether renting or buying as an investment, student properties are well worth a gander.
When it comes to living away from home for the first time, for many it’s as a student – and this city has lots of students. With two major universities, several colleges and a prestigious music learning establishment all based here, the studying population escalates each year and so does the demand for student accommodation. A real first home.

Preston Road, Brighton
Living as a student doesn’t have to mean sharing. Sometimes it’s good to have a place of your very own to retreat from the bustle of college and live to the beat of your own drum – whether it be quiet study, entertaining or simply catching up on a good book. This generously proportioned third floor studio apartment allows you to do just that. With a kitchenette and shower room and near to the greenery of Preston Park and the transport links of Preston Park Station, this is central enough to never miss out on anything, but private enough to never let anything intrude.
