Charles Wycherley Independent Estate Agents are pleased to present Old Malling Cottage, as stunning detached house off a quiet lane and in a glorious elevated location overlooking the property`s own one acre paddock and an unequalled view over the River Ouse. The property, which has just been completely re-roofed, has four bedrooms on the first floor, all with views, and a bathroom. The ground floor has two large original reception rooms with generous entrance hall, kitchen, utility room, cloakroom and a superb conservatory/sitting area with exceptional views. The property has a generous drive for at least four cars and a double garage (new roof), which could be connected into the ground floor for additional accommodation (subject to planning permission).

Old Malling Cottage is only one of a few properties with the privilege of overlooking rural River Ouse and yet be within Lewes town. The view over the paddock and river is idyllic and the property has its own river frontage including a fine mooring. Lewes town centre is an easy drive or a 20 minute walk via Willeys Bridge to the Pells area and into the historic centre. Lewes town has many cultural attractions including historical and period buildings, cafes, restaurants and public houses. There are three superstores including Waitrose and not forgetting the mainline Railway Station (London Victoria 65 mins & London Bridge 90 mins).

N.B. The approach from Old Malling Way has an area with a planning application for residential building, which is thus alerted to a purchaser.
