Charles Wycherley Independent Estate Agents are delighted to offer this extremely attractive three bedroom cottage in Paddock Road. The property is Victorian, built of red brick with a slate roof and it has a mature south facing garden and the peace and tranquillity of overlooking The Paddock, an idyllic strip of grass and meadow in central Lewes. The house is on three floors with three cottage double bedrooms with sash windows and the property has great character with original cast iron fireplace and exposed wood including floorboards. The rear extension, making the property larger than the original standard cottages, provides a modern fitted kitchen and modern white bathroom, both of which connect to the most attractive gardens with a high-level view over the roof tops. The property has gas central heating.
Paddock Road is a special place in Lewes with its mix of quietness and yet so central to the town. This attractive cottage looks immediately over The Paddock and allotments with trees framing the delightful outlook. Lewes town centre is just five minutes walk, the Castle can be seen from Paddock Road itself, and the situation is incredibly convenient with such easy access to the town`s historic core with cultural amenities. Lewes High Street has an abundance of period buildings, individual shops as well as three superstores, many public houses, cafes and restaurants and the main line Railway Station (London Victoria approx. 65 mins & London Bridge 90 mins) is just beyond with the new Depot Cinema adjacent. Riverside and South Down walks are also within easy access.
