5 Bedroom End of Terrace House
A beautifully restored, fine and elegant 5 BEDROOM EDWARDIAN home of approx 1666 SQ FT situated in a PRIME HISTORIC CENTRAL LOCATION just minutes from LEWES MAINLINE STATION. Offering TWO RECEPTION ROOMS, two shower rooms and a GENEROUSLY SIZED REAR GARDEN. This is a much loved and well maintained traditional end of terrace home. The interior accommodation is beautifully complemented by a stylish and sophisticated decor and provides a series of capacious rooms - particularly on the ground floor - which offer all the pre-requisites for modern family living and entertaining. A number of features synonymous with the architectural era in which the property was built lie harmoniously alongside a contemporary design influence. Such features include beautiful staircases, fireplaces, sash windows, part panelled walls, ornate ceiling cornicings, picture rails and exposed stained floor-boards in part. Furthermore, the property benefits from high ceilings, some double glazing and secondary glazing in part, gas central heating, modern white bathroom suites and fitted storage throughout. The property is approached via a front garden which results in the house being set back from the road. The front door opens into the entrance hall where there are panelled doors leading to the kitchen/diner and the sumptuous 15 ft living room which enjoys a grandiose sash bay window incorporating a window seat and receiving natural southerly light. A set of bi-folding doors open to the second reception room and afford the option of one extensive semi-open plan space. The 13 ft reception room is currently used as an additional sitting room and has double doors to the rear garden with views extending beyond to Lewes townscape. A double-width opening leads to the 20 ft kitchen/diner - a voluminous space comprising a beautifully appointed kitchen with a composite work top incorporating a breakfast bar, a range of units with 'soft close' drawers and doors and integral appliances which include a hob with glass splash-back, an electric fan oven and grill and a dishwasher. The dining area has bi-folding doors to the rear garden and a utility area provides a functional extension to the kitchen offering fitted shelves, space and plumbing for appliances and a useful modern cloakroom. Of further interest is the two-roomed cellar (with an approximate head-height of 5 ft 4 inchs) which provides an excellent storage solution. A beautiful staircase ascends from the entrance hall to the first floor where the accommodation continues; 16 ft master bedroom and 13 ft guest bedroom - each of which has its own ornate cast iron fireplace and useful fitted wardrobe storage, a further single bedroom, a family shower room with a luxury suite and a separate cloakroom. Stairs continue to the second floor where there are two further double bedrooms and an additional shower room. One of the bedrooms enjoys views towards countryside and the other has an ornate fireplace and Castle views. Externally the rear garden is, in our opinion, of an unexpected good size for a property in such a central Lewes location. The garden includes two Indian sandstone terraces - one adjacent to the kitchen/diner, the other to the rear of the garden - affording ample spaces for al fresco dining and entertaining. The garden is otherwise laid to lawn with well stocked flowerbeds to the borders and is enclosed by walled and trellis fenced borders. Lewes is a thriving market town and the beauty of the town's rich architectural heritage interplays with both the River Ouse, as it meanders through the town centre and the South Downs National Park, which provides a dramatic backdrop to the townscape. The coastal, business and entertainment city of Brighton and Hove is just 8 miles away. Agent's note: Energy Efficiency Rating E. Viewings are highly recommended to appreciate this fantastic home.
