The kitchen is fitted with an attractive range of cream fronted units and there is a gas fired Aga as well as a hob and oven. There is also a walkin pantry and a good size utility room. From the kitchen a door opens onto the steps leading to the cellars which consist of 4 adjoining rooms. From the dining room a door leads out to the courtyard.

7 Southover High Street is situated on one of the most historic and attractive streets in Lewes, close to the centre of the town and a short distance from Lewes mainline railway station with its regular service to London (London Victoria/London Bridge in about 64 minutes). The Elizabethan house, Southover Grange, with its beautiful public gardens is a very short distance from the property.
Lewes is a thriving county town situated within the South Downs National Park. The town has a good range of individual shops, a number of popular cafes and restaurants, as well as regular food and farmers' markets, and several supermarkets. The city of Brighton and Hove is about 8 miles to the south west and provides a comprehensive range of cultural and shopping facilities. The South Downs National Park provides wonderful opportunities for walking and recreation.
The internationally renowned Glyndebourne Opera House is about 3 miles to the east.

To the rear of the house is a brick paved courtyard with a cherry tree. Steps lead up to a roof terrace from which there are some views over the roof tops of the town and to the castle beyond.
