Full description

Tenure: Freehold

This charming attached property is thought to be Victorian, having been built on the site of an earlier building. Internally, the house provides well-arranged and light accommodation arranged over two floors. Features within the house include a stained glass window in the front door depicting Lewes Castle, wooden floors in the spacious entrance hall and in the kitchen/dining room, extensive built-in book shelving in both the study and drawing room. The drawing room has a wide bay window with built-in window seats and an attractive fireplace which is currently fitted with a gas coal-effect fire. There are also fireplaces in the entrance hall, study and principal bedroom.

The kitchen/dining room is a particular feature of the property and has recently been fitted with a bespoke range of painted and wooden units with polished granite work surfaces. The kitchen was built by Inglis & Hall and includes a larder cupboard, a Miele oven, microwave and warming plate and a large American-style
Fisher & Paykel fridge/freezer. A glazed sliding door gives access to the utility area. The well-arranged ground floor accommodation is complemented on the first floor by a particularly spacious triple aspect principal bedroom. In addition there are two further double bedrooms, a further bedroom which is currently fitted with wardrobes and is used as a dressing room and a generous well-appointed bathroom.

From the no-through lane, double wooden sliding gates give access to the property's parking space. Beyond the parking area the part-walled garden is laid to lawn, bordered by various flower beds and climbing the front elevation of the house are a number of mature roses. Given the property's elevated position, there are some lovely views from the house over the town towards the South Downs.

Castle Precincts Cottage lies in a highly sought after elevated position, well away from main roads in the historic centre of the town a short distance from Lewes High Street. The house is set within the castle precincts close to Lewes Castle, and is approached via a no-through road. The mainline station is about 0.3 mile from the property providing a mainline service to London (London Victoria about 64 minutes). Lewes is a vibrant county town, lying within the South Downs National Park and provides an excellent range of individual shops, restaurants and recreational facilities, including the recently opened independent Depot cinema, Waitrose and Tesco supermarkets, also regular food and farmers' markets.

Lewes has some excellent state schools and there are many well respected and established private schools in the area. 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. The coastal, business and entertainment city of Brighton and Hove is some 8 miles distant.
