Charles Wycherley Independent Estate Agents are delighted to present this attractive three-storey cottage to the market. The property is immaculately presented with a double aspect double bedroom on the second floor with views to the Boat Yard, river and Lewes town centre to the west as well as the long rear garden backing onto Cliffe to the east. The first floor also has a fine double bedroom with a characterful ‘ducks nest' fireplace and exposed wooden floorboards and a modern white bathroom with shower. The ground floor has a glazed door and sash window giving excellent light into the 22'5 (6.83m) sitting room with a cast iron wood-burner, central arch and wooden flooring leading to the fitted kitchen with Velux window and full glazing to its side aspect. Steep steps lead to a tiered rear garden with shed and small lawn but then the ‘crowning glory' of the elevated paved patio with panoramic views to the South Downs and Lewes town centre including the Castle.

South Street is a highly convenient ‘community street' to the east of the town centre and adjoining Cliffe High Street. The cottage enjoys immediate walks onto the river banks and backs onto woodland with picturesque Chapel Hill leading up to Lewes Golf Course and the South Downs. 'Living in South Street during lockdown has been a joy of community spirit' says the owner, and an eclectic mix of houses brings a togetherness of young and old. Cliffe High Street is a usually vibrant pedestrianised area of independent shops, cafes, pubs and restaurants, including the original ‘Bills', and a stroll over the hump-back Cliffe Bridge takes you to Waitrose, but with the other two superstores just past the Health Centre on the riverbank. To the south of the High Street, Lewes Railway Station (London Victoria 65 mins & London Bridge 90 mins, Brighton 20 mins) and the Depot Cinema are just a 10-15 minute walk.
