Exquisite Grade II Listed (circa 1620), 1 bedroom, split level, period property with a wealth of charm, character and style situated in a sought after, prime central location in the heart of the historic County Town of Lewes. The extensive, sympathetic renovation and restoration of this property is in our opinion of a very high standard throughout. What makes this restoration unique is the bespoke combination of modern high design and the way in which this works symbiotically with beautiful period features. The property can be accessed via a communal entrance from the High Street or via an independent private front door from Castle Ditch Lane and the well-proportioned accommodation is arranged over two floors. From the ground floor a front door opens to the entrance hall which opens to a substantial drawing room. Centred around an impressive inglenook fireplace with wood burning stove set on a stone hearth, this 18ft (TBV) space beautifully showcases the features found in a Jacobean building; numerous exposed timbers to the ceiling and walls being an obvious reference to the era in which the property was built. This property is also carefully punctuated with stylish modern architectural features and boasts several concealed storage solutions. A beautiful bespoke wooden staircase with glass balustrade rises from the drawing room to the first floor beneath which are bespoke cupboards. The bespoke fitted kitchen features a vaulted double glazed ceiling, quarry tiled floor, stone work-surfaces, butlers sink and has ample space for appliances. From the kitchen is a door to a rear lobby which in turn has a door to the rear giving access to a (communal) store room; a useful space for storing bicycles etc. Also, in the lobby is a door that opens to a cloakroom with modern white suite comprising toilet and wash hand basin and a cupboard housing the Worcester Bosch gas fired boiler. The rear lobby has a reclaimed brick floor as does the ground floor cloakroom. Upstairs the bedroom and the bathroom also feature a vaulted ceiling which extends over 10ft (TBV) and is inset with conservation windows. This bedroom features an array of bespoke fitted furniture in walnut veneer, including cupboards and drawers which also conceal pocket sliding doors to the luxury bathroom. The bathroom has a modern white suite comprising wash hand basin, toilet and luxury bath. Agents notes; GCH.
