Charles Wycherley Independent Estate Agents are delighted to present this attractive Scandia Hus property to the market. The property has many exciting features including a barn-style entrance with gallery stairwell, a magnificent open-plan ‘L' shaped family room with bespoke craftsman built kitchen including Caesar stone worktops and quality fittings. The sitting room has a wood-burner with an insulated stainless steel flue running up through the house. Solar panelling will provide approximately 50% of hot water. There is multi-zoned underfloor heating and wood framed triple glazed windows. The property has an independent double garage reached via a central covered passageway and there is a pebbled double drive providing ample parking. The south-west facing garden is of good size, divided between a sandstone paved patio and lawn.
Templars is located to the towns south-west edge, being approximately 15 minutes walk to the Railway Station, connections to Brighton (20 mins), London Victoria (65 mins) and London Bridge (90 mins), with the town centre just beyond. There are 2 good primary schools a safe 10 minute walk across playing fields, with Lewes Priory secondary school approximately 20 minutes on foot. The property is opposite the scenic Stanley Turner Ground playing fields, which cater largely for rugby and cricket, but which also offer the perfect ‘spill over' area for over-energetic kite-flying children who enjoy the open space and dog walkers on their way to countryside walks on the meadows just beyond. Lewes, the county town of East Sussex, boasts an historical and cultural heritage with the Norman Castle, Anne of Cleves House and the Priory Monastery Ruins among the sites of interest. Although there are 3 superstores in the town, Lewes is better known for its abundance of independent shops, pubs, cafes and restaurants, in keeping with its unique vibrant character.
