Charles Wycherley Independent Estate Agents are delighted to show this superbly modernised and attractive period Grade II listed cottage to the market. The property is on 3 floors with an additional cellar in good condition. The sitting room has a double aspect with restored sash windows and a cast iron wood-burner, leading to an improved fitted kitchen. The first floor has 2 bedrooms (1 double) with a modern white bathroom with shower. The second floor has 2 rooms, one being a double bedroom (3), and an additional study or dressing room, but also having the potential for an ensuite bathroom. In June 2021 the property had a brand new Welsh slate roof installed, it has gas fired central heating and is beautifully presented with a 39' west facing garden and excellent views to both sides to the South Downs, particularly from the second floor.
Sun Street is a picturesque central street of eclectic property, though predominately cottages. Lewes High Street is just 5 minutes walk, with this historic core having so many magnificent period properties including Lewes Castle, the Town Hall, Annes of Cleves House, the Priory Monastery etc. and many independent shops, cafes and restaurants, the town has a charm all of its own. The Pells area with pond, open-air swimming pool and riverside walks, are on the doorstep, with the South Downs not much further but so too are the 3 superstores, particularly Waitrose. Lewes Railway Station, with the Depot Cinema alongside, is only a little over 5 minutes walk, with services to London Victoria (65 mins), London Bridge (90 mins) and Brighton (20 mins).
