Charles Wycherley Independent Estate Agents are delighted to announce the marketing of this superb town house in central Lewes with magnificent views, a larger than average garden and garage/studio approached with rear entrance from Bradford Road. The house is on three floors with additional half landings and cellar, giving a private, light layout. The house has four bedrooms with bathroom and modern shower/wet room as well as a sitting room with south facing bay window, wood-burner and open-plan kitchen/family room with the rear section looking over the terrace to superb views. The garden is larger than others, being wedge-shaped with a top tiled terrace, lawn and large deck, along with vegetable fruit and flower beds and the garage/workshop. The property has largely double glazed units, gas fired central heating and a two-room cellar.
De Montfort Road is just to the west of Lewes High Street and the house has an open southerly aspect towards St. Annes Church and to the rear with the garden shaped towards the east with incredible views over Baxters Field/Paddock, Lewes Castle and the South Downs beyond. Lewes' historic town centre is only five minutes walk with its period buildings, individual shops, public houses, cafes and restaurants as well as three superstores. The Railway Station (London Victoria approx. 65 mins & London Bridge 90 mins) is ten minutes walk and this is opposite the fabulous new Depot cinema.
