The property is built on 5 storeys with the opportunity of a separate flat to the lower ground accommodation and has a particular feature of the high ceiling first floor sitting room with tall Georgian windows. The house is laid out as 4 bedrooms with 2 bathrooms but is extremely flexible with ground floor rooms which can open into the kitchen for instance. There is a fine walled west facing garden and the house has many original features including a Georgian staircase with alcoves, exposed or painted floorboards, picture rails and high skirtings The one bedroom separate flat has underfloor heating but there is gas central heating to the main house.

Albion Street is just off Lewes High Street and is thus a highly convenient town house just yards from Lewes with its individual shops, cafes and restaurants and also Waitrose and the Eastgate shopping centre is just beyond leading to Cliffe Bridge and the eclectic Cliffe High Street atmosphere of shops and the property is also yards from Lewes' period properties of historic interest Lewes Railway Station is just over 5 minutes walk (with trains to London Victoria in just over 1 hour and London Bridge in approximately 90 minutes).
