Charles Wycherley Independent Estate Agents are delighted to introduce to the market this architect designed detached house with balconies, veranda and large front and rear gardens.

The property is arranged to make the most of the views with a split-level landing giving five bedrooms, two bathrooms, a spectacular high ceiling sitting room, kitchen/family room and study. There is a huge 32` (9.75m) integral garage and workshop which could be converted into a further large reception room. The windows are double glazed with wooden frames, there is gas central heating and multiple parking to the front garden.
This property is in a wonderful quiet location and close to the village itself. Kingston is a popular village just two miles from Lewes and has easy access to the A27 with connects to Eastbourne, Brighton with the two universities, and the A23 to Gatwick and London beyond. The village has an excellent primary school, the popular Juggs Arms, the village hall with nursery, parish church, as well as the village green/sports field with pavilion and tennis courts. Church Lane borders the South Downs with wonderful walks across the range towards Brighton and a walk that many take into Lewes. Lewes has an attractive historic core with three superstores, period buildings, individual shops, cafes and restaurants, as well as the excellent new Depot Cinema and a commutable Railway Station (London Victoria approx. 65 mins & London Bridge 95 mins).
