Full description

A rare opportunity to acquire what is in our opinion, a light, bright and most exquisite three/four double bedroom Victorian townhouse of considerable charm and character, situated in a highly desirable central Lewes location with elevated views to the front in part over the townscape towards the South Downs beyond. Lovingly and sympathetically refurbished throughout by the current owners, the result is an exceptional culmination of beautiful period features bound together by seamless modern elegance and style. Particular points and features of note to this property include sash windows, wonderful period fireplaces, high ceilings throughout, exposed floor boards in part and wood panelled internal doors. Arranged over four floors this much loved family home offers all the pre-requisites of modern family living with generously proportioned rooms which are considered to be flexible in terms of use and are immaculately presented offering stylish yet functional living. Of particular note on the lower ground floor is the 15 ft kitchen/diner which is semi open-plan to a wonderfully useful 16 ft day room. The kitchen incorporates timber work surfaces, a gas fired Aga and a Belfast sink as well as benefitting from views and access to the rear garden. Beautiful natural slate flooring leads you into the day room area which enjoys a walk-in bay window and a secondary entrance to the front garden. To the ground floor the property enjoys a formal living room with an ornate fireplace and floor-to-ceiling bay windows to the front ensuring this space is flooded with natural light. A further 14 ft reception room provides a flexible space - currently used as a home office, this room also offers the potential to be used as a fourth bedroom with a useful utility room/cloakroom completing the accommodation to this floor. Stairs ascend from the entrance hall to the first floor where the 15 ft master bedroom centres round another ornate fireplace whilst boasting elevated views from the walk-in bay over The Pells area of Lewes onto the Sussex countryside beyond. The family bathroom comprises of a charming white suite to include a claw-footed roll-top bath and a separate shower enclosure with a rain-style shower head. Stairs continue to the second floor where the property's enviable location can really be enjoyed from the two double bedrooms, with elevated views over the townscape and the idyllic South Downs National Park. Both bedrooms have exposed floor boards, fitted wardrobes and offer interconnecting doors, to be used if desired. Externally, to the rear of the property is a lovingly maintained, truly functional courtyard garden which enjoys a south easterly aspect (TBV) and offers a surprising amount of seclusion and privacy despite the property's central location. Through the front courtyard garden the property can be accessed via steps up to the main front door or down to a secondary and extremely useful 'tradesman's' entrance. Benefits of the location include being within the immediate vicinity of local shops, restaurants and other nearby amenities including the mainline railway station (London Victoria 70 minutes), Pells pond and Pells Pool - reputed to be one of the oldest open air swimming pools in the UK. Lewes is a vibrant and historic county town which has been recently included within the South Downs National Park. The A27 lies a short distance to the south of Lewes and provides easy access to the A23/M23, Gatwick Airport and the national motorway network. Agent's note: Energy Efficiency Rating E.
