5 bedroom detached house for sale

Houndean Rise, LEWES, East Sussex

Sold STC £950,000

Property Description

Full description

Set within the 'inner circle' and believed to be the third house ever built in Houndean Rise this substantial five bedroom imposing family home of approximately 2400 sq ft is situated in what is now widely considered to be one of Lewes' premier roads. In our opinion every expectation is fulfilled by this perfect example of a property of this kind. Originally built circa 1921 this is an Arts and Crafts original built in the Sussex vernacular that has enjoyed sympathetic renovation and recent additions. Double gates open to a sweeping 'half-moon' driveway which approaches the property to the front and leads to ample off street parking and a double car port. Substantial, mature, landscaped, un-overlooked gardens extend to the rear. The 23ft kitchen and breakfast room offers a fantastic family space having been recently refurbished to a high standard. The breakfast area is bright with floor to ceiling windows and doors that open onto the paved terrace and the rear garden. The recent addition of a utility room offers an additional modern convenience. The central staircase leading up to the first and second floor accommodation is defined by a beautiful and arresting slim-line feature window that extends to almost the full height of the property. The sense of space and the natural light that this architectural feature gives to the internal accommodation is of course unique to this style of house and a pleasure to experience. The lead-work dressing to this window references traditional lead dressing normally seen in churches and adds in our opinion a regal and somewhat ephemeral effect to early evening light. Another point of consideration is that this home has been sympathetically restored and modernised in recent years. The property has been double glazed and expense has not been spared in the choice of Georgian style leaded light double glazing throughout. The use of reclaimed oak in engineered flooring in a number of rooms, in the construction of doors and panelling to the entrance hall again points to the level of the quality of craftsmanship and presentation. The interior accommodation which has been well decorated and stylishly presented by the current owners comprises in brief; master bedroom suite with beautiful Canadian Fir flooring, four further bedrooms, three reception rooms, conservatory, kitchen and breakfast room, eaves room (currently used as a bedroom), family bathroom, shower room, two cloakrooms, laundry room and boot room. The rear garden is a true feature of this property. Viewing is highly recommended
