Charles Wycherley Independent Estate Agents are pleased to announce the marketing of this fine Grade II listed five-storey town house, one of a pair of period Georgian properties, in an ideal and stunning location at the base of St. Annes Hill, High Street, Lewes. The property has original Georgian features with its staircase, cornices and mouldings, door architraves, sash windows, cast iron fireplaces with marbles mantlepieces and high ceilings. The third floor has a double bedroom with excellent double aspect views and it`s own bathroom. The second floor has two double bedrooms and a family bathroom and below is a feature master bedroom with large ensuite bathroom. All the bathrooms are superbly fitted. The ground floor to Lewes High Street has a 24` (7.32m) through sitting room with two fireplaces and views, as well as a cloakroom and fine entrance hall with high grade secondary glazing. The garden floor has a fifth bedroom/study with a separate cloakroom, as well as a 22` x 20` max (6.71m x 6.01m)kitchen/family room with Hartley Quinn Wilson kitchen, having granite worktops and fitted appliances.

Lovelace House is beautifully positioned, overlooking Lewes`s period property, St. Annes Hill to the church, The Paddock and a stunning view of Lewes Castle. To the south is one of Lewes`s best views over Southover and the Ouse Valley including South Downs and a glimmer of the English Channel. Lovelace House is thus within Lewes`s historic core, backing onto and with vehicular access from sought after Rotten Row, and is one of the many stunning period houses of this part medieval centre. The individual shops start within yards including antique centres, cafes, restaurants and public houses as well as three superstores within ten minutes walk. The new Depot Cinema and adjacent Lewes Railway Station (London Victoria 65 mins & London Bridge 90 mins) are just a five minute stroll down cobbled Keere Street and past the glorious Grange Gardens.
