Charles Wycherley Independent Estate Agents are pleased to introduce this fine property to the market. The property is situated in a one-way only section of Lewes High Street, opposite a very useful car park and on the corner of the attractive cobbled Keere Street. The property has mixed use with the ground floor front room being originally a shop and a rear room beyond currently with kitchen, potentially also useably for commercial purposes. There is a lower ground floor approached by Keere Street with two rooms currently used as a study and temporary bedroom with cloakrooms, but potentially a kitchen area and separation of the stairwell for the commercial section would be possible. The first and second floors have three double bedrooms or two and a large upstairs sitting room with a modern bathroom. The property affords magnificent views to the south and west over the Southover area and the South Downs and Newhaven Valley beyond.

This property is naturally in the heart of Lewes's historic town core on the attractive cobbled Keere Street, famed for the notorious chariot race by the Prince of Wales (future George IV) down this steep hill. No.98 is within yards of a car park, opposite the 15th Century Bookshop, close to St. Michaels Church, Bull House, Westgate Chapel and Lewes Castle just beyond. The history and period buildings just go on and on with individual shops, cafes, public houses and restaurants and just over a 5 minute walk to Waitrose superstore, one of the three stores in Lewes and the mainline Railway Station (London Victoria approx. 65 mins & London bridge 90 mins), which is opposite the excellent Depot Cinema.
