Watergate House is a strikingly modern conversion of a 4934 sq ft (TBV) period property, centrally located in a prime town centre location with the rare benefit of a 21ft (TBV) garage and various terraces providing beautiful, elevated panoramic views over Lewes townscape towards the South Downs beyond. This property boasts stunning architectural features, luxury and modern conveniences throughout. At the heart of the property is a conical, vaulted atrium through which a sweeping staircase with glass balustrade gives access to accommodation arranged over three floors. This atrium is punctuated by internal windows and allows an abundance of natural light to flood the stairwell and internal spaces within the house creating interesting shadows and reflections where it falls.

With the original vaulted ceiling reaching in excess of 14ft (TBV) in height, exposed beams, exposed brick walls and a fireplace at each end this expansive space references the past life of this period property whist adopting the grand elegance evident throughout this restoration.
