Property description

Thought to date back to the late 1700s this charming Grade II listed period house spans four floors and exudes the romance and character one would expect from this era.

Approximately 1271 sq ft, this delightful family home offers the perfect opportunity to combine the convenience of central Lewes living with no compromise on space.

Our vendors say "The house has such warmth and character. It's a lovely place to be in the summer and cosy throughout winter, plus you can't beat its location for convenience." Accommodation has been thoughtfully restored and decorated to comprise; 13 ft. Sitting room with built-in book shelving, exposed original timber wall beams and wide plank painted floorboards, which lead you through to the heart of the home: A stunning, light-filled 22 ft. Open-plan kitchen dining room with large French doors which offer easy access onto the courtyard garden and al fresco dining area complete with large fixed table of bespoke design by a world renowned architect.

On the first floor there are two good sized double bedrooms both with built-in storage, wide plank floorboards, fireplaces and large sash windows. The rear bedroom may offer the potential for access to a roof terrace subject to the necessary planning and consent. The master bedroom is a tranquil retreat, occupying the entire second floor with gorgeous en-suite with free-standing bath and built-in shelving. There is an abundance of built in storage throughout the property, much of it original, including a 159 sq. Ft.
