Behind the Scenes: Palmeira Mansions, Hove (members only)
Join the Chamber for another ever popular Behind the Scenes tour, this time with a rather grand feel.
Take a glimpse back at Victorian life in a house tour which reveals the opulence, taste and lifestyle of a nouveau riche gentleman. This Grade II* listed Victorian house, 33 Palmeira Mansions in Hove, is part of the English Language Centre. The building has a magnificent Victorian interior, including a marble staircase, alabaster tiled walls, marble dados and many extraordinary fireplaces with elaborate over mantels, these being described in the listing as ‘an outstanding collection of fittings.’
33 Palmeira Mansions is on the corner of Salisbury Road and New Church Road in Hove. The English Language Centre in Brighton has been based there since it was founded in 1962. The building itself has a long history dating back to the 1880s and still maintains many of its beautiful historic features. In 1978 it was listed as Grade II* for its magnificent interior.
Palmeira Mansions, on Palmeira Square, are two south facing terraces built between 1883-4. Designed by the architect J H Lanchester and the builder Jebez Reynolds jnr., these large Victorian properties have four storeys with an attic and basement. However, number 33 is unique in terms of its wonderful interior design.
Come along and see for yourself. Those who love architecture, history, and the opportunity of going to a local pub or bar afterwards for some evening libation, will have a ball!
