Property description

Purchasing this property with A lifetime lease


This property is offered at a reduced price for people aged over 60 through Homewise´s Home for Life Plan. Through the Home for Life Plan, anyone aged over sixty can purchase a lifetime lease on this property which discounts the price from its full market value. The size of the discount you are entitled to depends on your age, personal circumstances and property criteria and could be anywhere between 8.5% and 59% from the property´s full market value. The above price is for guidance only. It is based on our average discount and would be the estimated price payable by a 69-year-old single male. As such, the price you would pay could be higher or lower than this figure.

For more information or a personalised quote, just give us a call. Alternatively, if you are under 60 or would like to purchase this property without a Home for Life Plan at its full market price of £1,250,000, please contact Cubitt & West.


Property description


This is a rare opportunity to acquire a very unique, family home set within an elevated position, offering breathtaking views of the South Downs.

The impressive lounge is a great space to spend quality family time. You can imagine entertaining friends and in the warmer months, opening up the doors onto the patio and spilling out into the garden to admire the stunning surrounding views. The utility room is incredibly handy for shutting away the noisy appliances to enjoy a peaceful evening.

All rooms are of generous proportions and you have the added luxury of an ensuite shower room to the master bedroom. If this is not enough, you will see there is scope of further extend or develop the property, subject to planning permission.

Situated in the sought after village of Kingston, you are only a few minutes walk to the popular village pub called The Juggs. The county town of Lewes is less than three miles away where you will find the mainline train station, providing direct links to London and Brighton.
