Charles Wycherley independent estate agents are delighted to introduce this fine Victorian town house as a one off and rarely available, one of the few houses in New road, as compared to cottages. This is a great location overlooking the highly attractive Lewes paddock to the rear and Lewes castle with winter vista to the wide section of road opposite Castle Lane to the front and thus receiving superb light. The property has had huge improvements, not only to maintenance but facilities. There are two generous double bedrooms, with potential for a roof conversion sttp, but has the benefit currently of only three floors and a nearly 20 foot through sitting room on the ground floor. There are two working fireplaces, original feature including wood panelling, painted floor boards and refitted Sussex sash sliding modern windows. The garden floor has a bespoke Harveys fitted kitchen with wooden units, granite worktops including to utility area and Miele stainless steel facilities. The bathroom is newly fitted by Fired Earth, this floor having underfloor heating with roll top bath. The garden has attractive views and stone supplied ready for fitting of a seating terrace. Gas central heating.
New Road is a quiet and delightful cul-de-sac of Lewes High Street entered via Westage Street opposite the stunning cobbled Keere Street and the house being within view of Lewes Castle and The Paddock to the rear. Thus, in the heart of Lewes' historic core, this group of four houses are often seen painted with the castle backdrop and gets an ideal spectatorship of Lewes bonfire. Parking permits are easily available in zone hs and b and it is a short walk to nature with the Pells, River Ouse, and South Downs on the door step. Lewes railway station is calculated by the owner as a seven minute walk connecting to London Victoria (1 hour) and London Bridge (90 minutes). A pleasant neighbourhood, Lewes High-Street is yards away despite the tranquillity with its individual shops, cafes, restaurants and bars as well as many cultural amenities including a new cinema.
