Charles Wycherley Independent Estate Agents are delighted to introduce this fine contemporary 6 bedroom detached house to the market. Cuilfail is a highly desirable private estate on the west face of the South Downs, with stunning views overlooking Lewes town centre. There are three floors of accommodation with an additional annex on two floors. The first floor has a full depth through sitting area/landing with large 27'2 x 14'9 (8.28m x 4.50m) master suite with kitchenette and bath area and a further bedroom of 17'4 x 14'9 (5.28m x 4.50m). The ground floor also has a large reception hall with galleried landing and contemporary oak staircase being tall and wide with glazed panelling. The triple aspect main sitting room/kitchen is 44' max x 21'3 (13.41m x 6.48m) with wood-burner inset to the chimney breast and two sets of patio doors open to a large decked balcony with great views. There is another separate ground floor suite with kitchenette, sitting room, shower area and separate bedroom. The lower ground floor has a kitchen, a family bathroom and three bedrooms, two with ensuite facilities and having direct access to the wrap-around garden. The annex has a large sitting room and fitted kitchen area with large double bedroom on the first floor with ensuite shower room.

Cuilfail is very close to the east of Lewes town centre, its entrance being just yards from Cliffe High Street with its eclectic and attractive mix of independents shops, antique centres, cafes, bars and restaurants, together with the three superstores including Waitrose, just beyond. Cuilfail backs onto Lewes Golf Course and fine South Down walks with a myriad of footpaths. Further, there is a wonderful walk along the River Ouse as well as a 20 minute walk to Lewes Railway Station (London Victoria 65 mins & London Bridge 90 mins).

Cliffedown was designed and built to an exceptionally high standard of thermal efficiency. Using the award winning, patented Styroframe insulated concrete formwork system the fabric of the building offers high levels of insulation and takes advantage of the heat storage of the concrete walls and floors. This provides high levels of comfort, low running costs and a small carbon footprint. Although currently utilising a small gas fired boiler the switch to a heat pump will be entirely feasible and economical when required by law in future years.
