Charles Wycherley Independent Estate Agents are delighted to present this attractive older style 1930's detached house, one of the much admired houses on the Brighton road. The property is on 3 floors with 5 bedrooms, bathroom and shower room. On the ground floor there is a sitting room, dining room, conservatory, study and breakfast room connecting to the kitchen with utility room. There is a large front driveway, garage and 170' x 60' south facing garden, the size of which there are so few in Lewes. The property has excellent views of the South Downs from upper floors with superb 1930's features including oriel, octagonal and crittall windows and gas central heating.

The Brighton Road was the show road in from Brighton to Lewes town centre. The property is about a 20 minute walk into Lewes town centre and a very short distance to South Downs walks and an easy bus ride to universities and Brighton city centre, as well as the A27 and A23 beyond to Gatwick and London. Lewes town centre has many historical attractions, including period buildings, individual shops, cafes, bars and restaurants. Just to the south of the town centre is Lewes Railway Station, with London Victoria 1hr away, London Bridge 90mins and Brighton 20mins. Adjacent is the Depot cinema.
