Charles Wycherley Independent Estate Agents are pleased to market this most attractive and imposing Edwardian semi-detached house of brick construction with tiled roof. One of few houses of this size in Lewes, this property off Offham Road has high ceilings, attractive fireplaces, picture rails, cornices and ceiling roses, sash windows and a signature full depth tiled floor to the welcoming entrance hall. The property has a 27' through sitting room, a spacious second drawing room and an adjoining 26' kitchen/breakfast room to add to a cloakroom, utility and access to cellar on the ground floor. There is potential for 6 bedrooms on the upper floors, but also great flexibility for studies, upstairs reception room and/or independent living, all featured and having splendid views, particularly to south and east. The house has the joy of parking in Lewes with a double tandem space, a good size rear garden, also with views and modern facilities including gas fired central heating.
Offham Road is just a few hundred yards walk to Lewes High Street, the Castle actually being seen from the house with the attractive Lewes Paddock close by as a green area and recreation ground . There are also opportunities for superb riverside or downland walks near by. The town centre has an historic core with many period buildings, individual shops, inns and fine restaurants. There are three all-budget superstores and, of course, the main line Railway Station (London Victoria 1 hour & London Bridge).
