Located in the historic medieval market town of Lewes, this beautiful mid-century family house benefits from large gardens and seperate garage. Situated on a quiet no through road forming part of a friendly community in a perfect location for access to Lewes High Street and popular local schools.
Knight and Knoxley are delighted to present this two-bedroom, semi-detached family home built in the 1950s, with a large garden, a driveway and a garage. The current owners have refurbished the kitchen and the bathroom and redecorated much of the house in a modern style in keeping with the period of the house. The property would lend itself to extension at the rear and into the loft space, as others on the road have done.
The house is set back, with a sizeable front garden and a driveway to the side, leading to the garage. The garage is currently being used for storage but could potentially be transformed into a garden office, studio or summer house. Inside the house, the front door opens to a hallway with space for coats and shoes and a window to the side which fills the space with light. The living room is a large space which runs the full depth of the house. Currently arranged with the dining area at the front and a cosy seating area overlooking the garden, it has also in the past been laid out with the dining table at the rear and the living area in the wider part of the room at the front. There are wooden floors running from the hall into the living/dining room, an exposed brick fireplace and a bay window overlooking the front garden. At the back of the room are two further windows and a glazed door to the garden so the room is filled with light at both ends. The kitchen has been refurbished by the current owners, with custom-built fronts to the units. There is an electric induction hob, an electric fan oven, and integrated appliances including a dishwasher, washing machine and fridge. A larder cupboard has space for a separate freezer. Karndean flooring has been laid here and also upstairs in the bathroom.
On the first floor are two double bedrooms. The main bedroom runs across the full width of the house, with large windows to the front. The second bedroom has a built-in cupboard and window overlooking the garden. The newly refurbished bathroom has a white suite and a shower over the bath which includes both a hand-held and a waterfall shower head. Access to the loft is on the landing. The house is double-glazed throughout.
Outside, the garden is a lovely size and widens at the back behind the garage. Winterbourne Stream runs behind the gardens and mature trees on its banks provide a backdrop to the garden. Footpaths close to the house take you onto the South Downs in minutes. In Lewes, there is a superb choice of restaurants, pubs and wonderful independent shops and cafés. Next to Lewes train station is Lewes’s own independent cinema The Depot which screens a wide variety of mainstream, art house and independent films, world cinema and documentaries. Highly regarded infant and primary schools, Western Road and Southover, are an easy walk, as are Priory Secondary School, Sussex Downs College, and Lewes Old Grammar School. Direct fast train service to London from Lewes station with links to London in just over an hour and Brighton in under 20 minutes. Bus services to Brighton run regularly from Brighton Road, which is only a ten-minute walk away.
