Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Racecourse House originally formed part of a group of period buildings on Lewes Old
Racecourse. The property was converted to a dwelling in the early 1980's and has since been improved and extended. The house is well presented and provides flexible accommodation with good natural light over two floors.

Particular features include a large reception/dining hall with a partly glazed roof and double doors opening to the garden. The kitchen is well equipped with a range of white fronted units and wood work surfaces and opens into the spacious breakfast room. The breakfast room has glazing on two sides incorporating two sets of doors opening onto the sheltered rear garden. The generous first floor sitting room has a triple aspect and takes advantage of the spectacular far reaching views. Double doors lead out to a balcony wrapping around two sides of the building and from which there are steps down to the garden. The three larger bedrooms all have en suite facilities and built in cupboards. Other features of note include tile flooring throughout the ground floor and a wood floor in the sitting room.

Racecourse House is situated in a quiet rural position within the South Downs National Park, on the site of the former racecourse, just to the west of the historic town of Lewes. Lewes town centre is approximately 1.5 miles, and provides an extensive range of restaurants and shops, together with regular food and farmers' markets and several supermarkets. For the commuter there is a regular
mainline train service to London (London Victoria in about 64 mins).

Lewes is a thriving county town and, together with the nearby city of Brighton and Hove, provides
excellent recreational and cultural facilities. The internationally renowned Glyndebourne Opera
House is about 5 miles to the east. The South Downs National Park provides wonderful opportunities for walking, riding and recreation and can be accessed directly from the property. The A27 lies a short distance to the south of Lewes and provides fast access to the A23/M23, Gatwick Airport and the national motorway network.

Racecourse House is approached via a long shared private road from which metal gates give access
to the property's gravel parking area. From the parking area a pedestrian gate opens on to a path
leading to the house. The garden is mainly to the south west side of the house and is predominantly
laid to lawn and partly surrounded by clipped evergreen hedging, giving a high degree of shelter and seclusion. There is a summer house with an area of decking to the front, which is situated to the far west corner of the property.
