Full description

A rare opportunity to acquire this delightful semi detached home, enjoying an elevated position within the favoured Nevill area of Lewes and backing onto the South Downs, which can be accessed directly from the rear garden.

Situated on the quiet peripheries of this historic county town, this property basks in its glorious location with breathtaking uninterrupted views from both the house and gardens over the Sussex Downland.

The accommodation, totalling approximately 1110 sq ft, has been thoughtfully designed and beautifully decorated throughout, with a distinct emphasis placed on integrating the internal spaces with the private gardens and surrounding landscape.

The 15 ft kitchen/dining room boasts tri-folding glazed doors which frame the stunning views and open onto a decked terrace. This provides an ideal setting for al fresco entertaining and, in our opinion, considerably extends the living space in warmer months. It also offers front row seats for two of Lewes's famous fireworks displays (TBV).

The 14 ft living room is of a semi open plan arrangement to the kitchen and centres round an attractive wood burning stove. The highly flexible accommodation further includes an 18 ft annexe room benefitting from a shower room, its own private entrance and direct access to the rear garden.

Stairs ascend from the entrance hall to the first floor, where stripped wood panelled doors open to two double bedrooms and a family bathroom. From this floor, views from both front and rear can especially be admired.

Externally, the property enjoys sizeable, beautifully landscaped rear gardens of approx. 95 ft (TBV) which are, in our opinion, a truly wonderful feature, having been carefully considered and well maintained. From the patio area a paved pathway meanders through the remainder of the predominantly lawned gardens which are arranged into a series of outdoor 'rooms' and include a hand-built hen house and firepit. Enclosed by hedged and fenced borders the gardens offer a great deal of privacy and flow seamlessly into the surrounding landscape.

At the end of the garden, adjacent to the South Downs, is a remarkable timber-built garden studio of approximately 240 sq ft, providing a surprising and extremely versatile space. The studio is fully insulated and served by power, lighting and internet connectivity. Elsewhere in the garden are numerous useful storage shed including a utility cupboard with space and plumbing for a washing machine and tumble dryer.

To the front of this exceptional home the landscaping continues with a pebble driveway providing off street parking bordered by a wood store, raised flowerbeds and an open porch.
