Charles Wycherley Independent Estate Agents are delighted to present this elegant Grade II listed end of three Georgian terrace houses in a classic Lewes location in the stunning mix of period properties making up Southover High Street. Opposite Southover Church, this property sits back from the road and is just yards away from Anne of Cleves House to the west, the elegance of Priory Crescent and the stunning Grange Gardens to the east. The rear of the property has glorious views to the part medieval Lewes High Street including the towering Norman Castle. The house is on four floors with a large double second floor bedroom with door from the first floor landing. The first floor has a large double master bedroom with modern ensuite shower room, and two further bedrooms with modern family bathroom, both with high grade fittings. The ground floor has a large reception hall and a double reception room of 25` x 18` max and an independent 5th bedroom/study with ensuite shower room, ideal for guests. The garden floor has a 20` family/dining room opening to a superb wood-fronted kitchen with granite worktops and Bosch appliances, with a utility/cloakroom and double doors to a further ‘snug` sitting room, opening to a wine cellar. The garden is a superb feature with two separate entrances from Southover High Street. The garden is surprisingly large and walled, wrapping around next door, with the two outbuildings and having glorious views of Lewes Castle from the lawn and seating terrace. It has approximately 120` (36.58m) depth and expands to 60` (18.29m) width with fruit and vegetable gardens and many private seating and recreation areas. The property has a modern gas central heating system, double/secondary glazing and many original Georgian features.
Southover High Street is an idyllic Lewes location just five minutes walk past attractive period buildings to Lewes Railway Station (London Victoria approx. 65 mins & London bridge 90 mins), making an easy commute. Cockshut Road is opposite with the Southdown Sports Club, the old Priory Monastery ruins and country walks. Lewes town centre is reached within approximately 5 minutes via historic cobbled Keere Street, or a level walk to the Eastgate shopping centre. Lewes has a myriad of period buildings and individual shops, cafes and restaurants as well as the exciting new Depot Cinema opposite the Railway Station. Lewes is attractively set between the South Downs with River Ouse running through to the English Channel. The A27 connects Eastbourne to Brighton and Hove city centre via the two universities and connecting to the A23 to Gatwick, the M25 and London.
