The selection of studio, one, two and three bedroom apartments with Help to Buy available, are nestled between the South Downs and the sea and are a moment’s stroll away from innovation and collaboration hub, Plus X. The new community taking shape will revel in Home X’s high quality residential spaces each with cutting edge technology, landscaped outdoor spaces and inspiring flexible workspaces, perfect for those who want to divide their home and work environments but without the long commute.

Flexible living space.

Rich Login, Director of Sales and Marketing, at Optivo, comments: “At Home X we are really looking towards creating a new neighbourhood for the city and offering homes with future flexible living space, ideally for people who want to collaborate with a likeminded, thriving community.

“We are excited to be a part of one of Brighton’s largest regeneration schemes, alongside U+I, Brighton & Hove City Council and the University of Brighton.

“Home X and the wider regeneration of retail, workspace and landscaping will help put this part of Lewes Road on the map again, and make it a new destination for the city and its residents.

“Interested buyers who want to see the space for themselves should make an appointment to view our selection of show apartments now.”

Home X residents will benefit from this regeneration as a new street with commercial spaces will be planned, alongside a medical centre and pharmacy, and for those who like to keep fit, a 1km running and fitness route.”

Private and affordable.

Home X apartments are bright and spacious with high quality, open plan living spaces, wide hallways and plenty of storage space. The homes are flooded with natural light from the floor to ceiling windows, kitchens are fitted with smart and energy-efficient, Siemens integrated appliances and bathrooms rock modern matt black fixtures and fittings. Selected apartments come with either their own balcony or terrace for much needed outdoor space.

Tom Bryant, head of new homes for the South-East at Savills, adds: “This is the first new neighbourhood for some time. In recent years, Brighton has struggled to deliver homes to meet the identified needs. Having such a great number of new apartments at Home X is really what has been needed for many to be able to get a foot on the ladder and make home ownership in Brighton possible for first time buyers.

“Home X plays an important part in the wider regeneration story with both a private and affordable residential offering. So far, we have seen strong interest from buyers impressed by the high level of finish and functionality of the apartments. A great selection of amenities and the wider neighbourhood offering on your doorstep are also huge plus points in making Home X your address.”


As part of the regeneration, a striking new bridge will link the new community with neighbouring residential areas, while creating a new gateway at the north eastern entrance to the city. Lewes Road Bridge will be for pedestrians and dismounted cyclists, bringing the communities of Saunders Park View closer to Lewes Road and Moulsecoomb Station, as well as bus routes into town and the sea. From the development, you can hop on a bus and be at the beach in less than 19 minutes with a direct route straight down Lewes Road. Shopaholics can stroll the Lanes or the Brighton Open Market, while foodies will be impressed with the many eateries available in and around the development, or why not soak up the electric nightlife where live music, dance moves or theatrical shows are obligatory.

Home X is on the market through Savills, with prices starting at £231,000 for a studio apartment, £285,000 for a one bedroom apartment and £381,000 for a two bedroom apartment, all available with Help to Buy. To find out more, please visit or call 01273 068032.
