Charles Wycherley Independent Estate Agents are delighted to show to the market Landscape Cottage, named due to the panoramic views to which it affords across open countryside to the Hamsey valley and many miles as far as Crowborough, as well as the South Downs including Malling Coombe and Lewes Golf Club. The property is at the top west end of Hill Road, which is extremely convenient to Wallands School. The property has been magnificently extended to both ends, achieving a single story contemporary home with 4 bedrooms, one currently being used a music studio, with ensuite shower room. The fittings to the property are superb, with large windows benefitting the views and a good sized beautifully planted garden with seating terrace and additional roof terrace. There is a large fitted kitchen/breakfast room, large garden/dining room and sitting room with wood-burner. The property has gas central heating, double glazed windows and a long driveway with private garden.
Hill Road is on the edge of the highly popular Wallands area of Lewes, an easy walk along the Offham Road to Lewes town centre, approximately 15 minutes walk, and is just yards from Wallands Primary School and South Down walks. The views are breathtaking, and being a cul-de-sac, the environment quiet and peaceful. Lewes is the county town of East Sussex, with an historic medieval centre and attractive period properties, individual shops, public houses, cafes and restaurants, as well as three superstores and the new independent Depot cinema. There is also the main line Railway Station (London Victoria approximately 65 mins & London Bridge 90 mins).
