Charles Wycherley Independent Estate Agents presents one of six houses converted some 30 years ago from the attractive Southover Malthouse, originally part of Southover Manor and once a girl`s school, and now approached via an attractive grass and pathed square off of Cluny Street. This attractive red brick and tile house was converted on three floors with a large 17`8 x 10`5 (5.43m x 3.20m) upstairs sitting room, looking over the square, with a wealth of ceiling and wall beams to the rest of the property. The ground floor has a fully fitted kitchen/dining room with entrance hall, ground floor cloakroom and study/occasional further bedroom, leading to a raised brick garden with seating terrace for afternoon and summer evening sun. There are three bedrooms, the principal also looking over the square, and an attractive modern white bathroom suite. The property has majority double glazed windows, gas central heating and a garage just yards away on a footpath approach and at the convenient end of a block off of Cluny Street.

This elegant Malthouse is extremely conveniently positioned in the highly popular ‘old` town Southover area of Lewes. The property has a footpath approach from Southover High Street or Cluny Street, being quiet and yet just yards from historic Anne of Cleves House, Southover Church and the town`s attractive Grange Gardens at the bottom of cobbled Keere Street. Crucially, Lewes Railway Station (London Victoria approx. 1 hour & London Bridge), is only five minutes walk and the town centre is just beyond with its historic core of period buildings, individual shops, antique shops, craft based industries, a host of popular inns and a growing number of restaurants and cafes.
