Charles Wycherley are delighted to introduce this fine older style, tile-hung, detached house with separate detached annex. Occupying an impressive corner plot, with superb views to the South Downs in all directions, the property was individually designed with a generous footprint for the original owner. It now comes to the market for only the second time. Beautifully presented, the house retains many original features including oak front door, oak block flooring, oak stairway, fireplace and picture rails. It has gas central heating, double glazing and 4 double bedrooms. The master bedroom has a modern en-suite shower room and there is a family bathroom and separate w.c. Bedrooms 2 and 3 have a large adjoining eaves space with dormer window, giving potential for an ensuite bath/shower room to both (subject to planning regulations). Bedroom 4 has access by ladder to an additional loft room useable as study/hobby room, though there is potential to utilise the full width of loft space to create a full two-bedroom loft conversion (STPP). An attractive galleried staircase leads down to the large entrance hall with entrance lobby. The sitting room has three aspects with bay windows overlooking front and rear gardens and there is an additional dual aspect living room. The fully fitted kitchen has been extended by the current owner to include a magnificent orangery with lantern light roof creating a light and bright family space which opens onto the garden. A ground floor cloakroom, large utility room, useful rear porch and an integral garage complete the main accommodation. The main house has a large driveway with front lawns and a large south-west facing rear lawn with private patio and mature beech hedge surrounding. The detached annex, constructed in recent years, is cleverly designed not to overlook the main house or its rear garden. Fully self-contained and all on one level, it has its own separate gated entrance and driveway, a south facing patio and lawned area. The annex has an open-plan sitting room/kitchen with a large double bedroom, shower room, gas central heating and double glazing and is light and spacious with vaulted ceilings and roof lights.

Gundreda Road is a premier Lewes road in the desirable Wallands district, an area known for its tree-lined roads creating a feeling of great spaciousness. Walks on the South Downs are extremely close via a footpath giving direct access onto the old Lewes Racecourse and further to Black Cap. The popular Wallands Primary School is close by, as is easy access to the A27 Eastbourne-Brighton road and direct connection to the A23/M23 for Gatwick and London. Lewes town centre is just over 10 minutes' walk with its historical core having many attractive period buildings, independent shops, 3 superstores, cafes, bars and restaurants in this highly desirable ex-market town and county town of East Sussex. The mainline Railway Station is just south of Lewes High Street with connections to Brighton (20 mins), London Victoria (65 mins) and London Bridge (90 mins), and opposite the excellent Depot Cinema.
