Full description

Superbly restored and presented Edwardian semi-detached house, thought to date back to 1903. Originally built by the winner of an architectural competition to design five houses on the western end of the street. This road is one of the oldest and most quaint areas of Lewes, steeped in history and is well located for access into the shopping and entertainment areas of central Lewes. It is a five minute walk to Lewes train station which is less than an hour from London Victoria. The space in the house will impress you as you enter the elegant hallway - it has been refurbished and remodelled by the current owners, yet maintains all the elegant features of it's period such as high ceilings, some with ceiling roses and period coving. There are original period windows and open fireplaces, combined with a quality, modern interior design. Two sitting rooms offer flexible reception space, enabling you to have a formal sitting room and family room, or teenagers TV room. The breakfast room has plenty of space for a dining table, where you can gain access to the garden through the French doors. A useful cellar is located off the hallway, giving easy access to storage space or to possibly convert into a further habitable room. Two spacious bedrooms, both en-suite and a family bathroom can be found on the first floor and three further bedrooms on the second floor. The property also benefits from a larger than average rear garden with two terraces, lawn area and garden shed.

What the Owner says:

We have really enjoyed our time living here - the real bonus was the garden in which our children enjoy playing football and the terraces are perfect for summer evening entertaining.

We use the station to get to work and it is only a walk to the end of the road to get into town.

The house has worked perfectly as a family home and we will be sad to leave - we no longer need the space offered here and hope the new owners will enjoy the house as much as we have.
