Located in the historic medieval market town of Lewes which is nestled in the beautiful South Downs National Park, this fabulous period house, formerly The Old Town Assembly Hall offers bright and spacious dual aspect living space over three floors with south facing garden.
Western Road is a central Lewes location; as you walk east, the road becomes Lewes High Street, so you are moments from all the restaurants, pubs and wonderful independent shops and cafés. The house is also located moments from the open spaces of the South Downs.
The house has stylish, contemporary, open-plan spaces on the ground floor and two further floors over which the three bedrooms and the bathroom are arranged. The house feels spacious and unique and is in excellent condition throughout.
The entrance to the house is approached through a privated gated entrance which leads to the courtyard garden at the front of the house. The garden is private and self-contained and makes for an attractive homecoming. The front door opens to a hallway where there is space for coats and shoes. There are windows onto the courtyard, making it a light and welcoming space. Stairs from here climb to the first floor and there are sightlines through to the reception room. There is also a door to the downstairs WC. Moving through to the back of the house you enter an incredible, open-plan space, fantastic for entertaining which is some nine metres wide and has delineated areas for the living room, the dining area and the kitchen. Oak-engineered flooring runs from the living room through the dining area. The kitchen area has ceramic floor tiles. There is a Bosch electric hob and fan oven and integrated appliances including a washer/dryer, dishwasher, and fridge/freezer. Grey base units and white wall units with wood counters are in keeping with the contemporary styling and there is an attractive white ceramic sink with drainer. There is direct access through double doors onto the pretty, walled south-facing garden.
On the first floor, a superb double-aspect main bedroom has an ensuite shower room, there is a further double room and a large bathroom. Stairs to the top of the house lead to the third bedroom which is another extremely spacious room, over six metres in length. Outside there are resident-only parking spaces on Western Road and adjoining street which means it is always easy to park.
Western Road is a central Lewes location; as you walk east, the road becomes Lewes High Street, so you are moments from all the restaurants, pubs and wonderful independent shops and cafés.
