Property description

A stunning and spacious maisonette which occupies the entire upper two floors of this quintessentially characterful Lewisian building, which is thought to date c.1750 and comes with its very own parking space.

At street level you open the door to the vibrancy of Lewes' café culture, restaurants and pubs a plenty! Yet, when inside, it's surprisingly quiet and you're perfectly perched above the high street with a magnificent vantage point come Lewes bonfire!

The handsome Tudor style façade is white render, framed by dark wood timber. Internal accommodation - covering approximately 105.7 sq.M / 1136 - is spacious with all rooms of generous proportions to include 20'7 x 17'7 lounge dining with open working fireplace; 19'9 x 11'11 master bedroom with dressing area and separate bathroom; and 15'8 x 9'5 second bedroom with access onto the terrace.

Magnificent views over characterful rooftops towards Lewes Castle to the rear are offered through solid Accoya timber framed windows, which were fitted in 2013 by Westgate joinery in Ringmer and come with a 50 years guarantee.

Externally, you can kick back and relax on the spacious, sun-drenched decked terrace, which you share with only one other flat, offering shared alfresco dining, additional seating and storage shed. Our vendors look forward to meeting you at the open house, where you will be able to fully appreciate this real piece of Lewes.
