Charles Wycherley Independent Estate Agents are delighted to bring to the market this Grade II listed period semi-detached house built, we understand around 1760. Brack Mount Lodge has immense character with exposed period beams and sloping ceilings. There are bay windows with sashes and casements, fireplaces with wood-burners, exposed floorboards and clay tiled floors. The owner has converted the lower floor into a magnificent kitchen/family room with a gas Aga and separate access, adding to the attractive ground floor with an 18' (5.49m) sitting room and additional snug/bedroom 4. The property has gas fired central heating, a front courtyard and a west facing walled garden.
Brack Mount Lodge is in an idyllic position overlooking the Castle bowling green, beautifully framed by Lewes Castle. The property has a triple aspect and is extremely light with a fantastic atmosphere, having views over Castle Banks to open countryside with the South Downs to the west and across rooftops to Lewes Golf Course to the east. The property is elevated at the top of Castle Banks in one of the quietest town centre locations and yet is just a few hundred yards from the High Street with its period buildings and historic attractions, together with independent shops, three superstores, restaurants, cafes, public houses and the excellent Depot Cinema. A little beyond and just ten minutes walk from the property is Lewes Railway Station (London Victoria approx. 65 mins & London Bridge 90 mins).
