PRIME CENTRAL LOCATION. Four bedroom, fantastically quirky, period property of approx 1860 sq ft with SELF CONTAINED ONE BEDROOM GROUND FLOOR ANNEXE (currently let for £850 PCM). Understood to date from the 15th Century (TBV) is this most unique Grade II Listed property, originally the Merchant's House features a superb penthouse floor open plan reception space, a LEASE LENGTH IN EXCESS OF 950 YEARS and a self-contained one bedroom ground floor annexe - 'The Garden Flat'. The property is situated in a popular central location fronting Cliffe High Street and enjoys views in part over Lewes townscape towards the South Downs. As to be expected of a property of this age and type, a wealth of exposed ancient timbers, beams, fireplaces and exposed floor-boards are to be discovered throughout. Furthermore, the property benefits from mostly timber framed double glazed windows and gas central heating. Approached from English's Passage, the front door opens into an entrance porch and hall with access to the upper floors where the accommodation to the main residence is situated. On the first floor there is a 13 ft double aspect master bedroom with fitted wardrobes, two further bedrooms, a family bathroom and a separate cloakroom. Stairs ascend to the second (top) floor where there is an open plan reception space currently comprising a living/dining area, kitchen and home office. This extensive space of 28 ft x 15 ft is abundantly light being of a double aspect and having numerous roof windows and a vaulted beamed ceiling. A superb window to the side affords stunning rooftop and Downland views. Steps from the home office lead up to the split-level fourth bedroom which has a 'sunken' area, currently a dressing space. The self-contained flat is quirky, individual and spacious and includes a kitchen/breakfast room, 15 ft living room with a bay window and Inglenook fireplace, one double bedroom and a bathroom with a white suite. Externally, there is a walled courtyard style garden with a raised decked area and a raised patio currently housing a summerhouse.
