Charles Wycherley Independent Estate Agents are delighted to offer the stunning and iconic Chantry Cottage to the market. This charming Grade II listed cottage sits adjacent to the beautiful Grange Gardens and is off the road of Southover High Street, having superb first floor views towards Lewes town. The property dates back to the early 1700s and has great character, with three double bedrooms, the master bedroom having ensuite bathroom, and a separate shower room. The ground floor has two reception rooms facing the quiet lane, with a central chimney and a full-depth living room/fitted kitchen. The house has charm and character throughout and there is an attractive well-stocked walled garden to the rear.
Chantry Cottage sits on the corner of the quiet section of Southover High Street, running between the elegant Priory Crescent, cobbled Keere Street and has a double aspect onto Eastport Lane, overlooking the exquisite Grange Gardens. Chantry Cottage is thus, in the attractive ‘old town` Southover area of Lewes, meters from Anne of Cleves House, Southover Grange Manor, the old Priory Monastery ruins and Southover Church. Equally, Lewes Railway Station (London Victoria 65mins & London Bridge 90mins) is just a few minutes walk away, as well as the excellent new Depot Cinema which is alongside the station. Just beyond is the Leisure Centre and the historic town centre with its many attractions and period buildings, along with individual shops, public houses, cafes and restaurants, as well as three superstores.
