About the property

Situated in the highly sought after Southover area and close to Lewes main line Railway Station (London Victoria 70 mins) and Grange Gardens, this classic, Victorian, 3 bedroom home arranged over three floors has a largely open-plan ground floor perfectly suited to modern family living, a larger than average, mature rear garden (considering the central location), a cellar and a fully insulated garden room/studio/workshop. The front door opens into the living room which features exposed floorboards, a wood burning stove set into the fireplace, fitted cupboards and shelves either side of the fireplace. Modern Oak flooring extends throughout the ground floor accentuating the sense of open space. The modern fitted kitchen is in an engineered plywood finish with black granite worktops. There is a Butler's sink and herringbone style tiled splashbacks. An opening leads from the kitchen to the dining room which has larder style cupboards and modern floor to ceiling double glazed windows and doors providing access and views over the rear garden. Stairs from the kitchen lead up to the first floor and a further hatch opens to reveal stairs leading down to the cellar. The cellar has approximately 6'1 head height and is un-developed with bare brick walls, a light well to the front, power points, lighting and a radiator. Subject to consents, there is the potential to develop the cellar or use as storage. The first-floor landing has strip wood panelled doors to principal rooms. Bedroom 2 has exposed wide board floorboards, a sash window to the front of the property enjoying views over Priory Street, a wardrobe set into the chimney recess with antique, strip wood doors and a cast iron fireplace. Bedroom 3 has a timber framed, double glazed window to the rear with views over the surrounding townscape. The family bathroom is beautiful. This semi-circular space with partially vaulted glass ceiling is perfectly suited to use as a luxury bathroom. Bathed in natural light the space is centred around a claw footed, roll top bath with a rain style shower above. There is a wash hand basin set in a vanity unit, WC and a heated towel rail. 3 sash windows give views of the surrounding townscape, Lewes castle, the rear garden and towards the South Downs. Stairs from the first-floor landing continue to the second floor occupied in it's entirety by the master bedroom. This impressive space also features a vaulted ceiling with exposed timbers, exposed floorboards bespoke fitted cupboards. There is a timber framed double glazed window to the rear with magnificent views over the surrounding townscape, Lewes castle and the South Downs. The rear garden is much larger than you would expect given the town centre location. Mostly laid to lawn specimen flowering plants, shrubs and trees, provide height and privacy. Steps lead down from the dining room to the garden. Further shingle laid steps extend past a terrace and an ornamental bay tree and on to a lawned area. At the bottom of the garden is a fully insulated timber framed workshop with floor to ceiling double glazed windows and doors, power, lighting and WIFI with use of a booster. Agents notes: GCH.
