Charles Wycherley Independent Estate Agents are delighted to announce the marketing of this fine 1930s extended detached house. The property is in an elevated position of the inner circle of Houndean Rise, thus having magnificent westerly views to open farmland and the South Downs. The property requires modernisation and may, subject to planning permission, be extended further. There are four bedrooms (3 double) and bathroom on the first floor with a tall loft space and easy access over a flat roof extension. The ground floor has three reception spaces with addition work room behind the integral garage. There is further a kitchen and ground floor cloakroom, as well as an entrance porch. The property is on a large plot with the rear garden receiving all day sun and also having ample parking and space to each side and front. The property also has a new gas central heating boiler for the central heating system.
Houndean Rise is a highly sought after Lewes location being on the western edge of town and connecting easily to the A27 and A23 and with a nearby bus stop with service straight into Lewes town centre, which is an approximate 15 minute walk. The town has a stunning historic core with Lewes Castle and period buildings together with many individual shops, public houses, cafes and restaurants. The Railway Station (London Victoria approx. 65 mins & London Bridge 90 mins) is just to the south of the High Street with the adjacent Depot Cinema. From Houndean Rise, there are immediate walks onto the South Downs.
