Property description


Picture greeting your guests in this inviting hallway, warm and welcoming, it offers a sense of grandeur, rarity in homes of this age. The lounge/dining area offers space for the family dining table and chairs and still has enough room to gather together after a long day and relax, if you have guests, you can always spill into the conservatory for extra space. The positioning couldn’t be better, as from here and the kitchen area, you can keep an eye on the kids as they run around the garden.

There is a very handy cloakroom on the ground floor, meaning that there will never be a queue first thing in the morning and there is also a study, which could even be used as a fourth bedroom if the new owners so wish, ideal for when friends or extended family stay.

All the bedrooms provide great views out across the garden and the positioning of this home on the road means that it is a lot quieter than most. The garden comes with its own decked area, perfect for barbecues when the weather allows.

Montacute Road is located to the West of Lewes and offers easy access to conveniences and transport links. A short walk up to the bus stop around the corner will take you into Brighton or up to Tunbridge Wells. Lewes town itself provides many restaurants, coffee shops, traditional pubs and independent boutique shops and the mainline train station provides direct links to London and Brighton.

What the Owner says:
This house was an unexpected treasure for me to find, as the size from the front really doesn’t do it justice.

The big garden is a plus and has allowed my kids a great place to play, which has been ideal for my hockey-playing son.

The road is a safe place to live and I can walk into town whenever I like. The kids are also able to walk to school, which was the one I wanted to send them too due to the fantastic reputation it has.
