A charming, recently refurbished and very comfortable and stylish terraced artisan cottage in the heart of Lewes with a pretty south-east facing garden. A large public open air swimming pool is at the bottom of the road with a country walk along the banks of the River Ouse next to it. Good cafes, shops, pubs and restaurants and the many antique shops and bric-a-brac shops are all within walking distance as well as several superb antiquarian bookshops. Glyndebourne Opera House is 3 miles away, and Brighton 7 miles.
The Railway station is 7 minutes walk from the house with trains direct to London Victoria in 1 hour 5 minutes. Trains also run to Ashford, and therefore the Eurostar, giving a very useful connection to mainland Europe. Regular buses go to Brighton and Tunbridge Wells. Lewes is also at the heart of Virginia Woolf territory, and a good base from which to visit Charlston and Rodmel nearby, and Kipling's home, Batemans, outside Burwash, a short 25 minute drive from Lewes. Brighton with its famous and exotic Royal Pavillion is a short bus or train ride from Lewes There are many other magnificent country houses and historic buildings within a close radius of the town.
The accommodation is surprisingly spacious with a large open plan living room adjoining a kitchen breakfast room with bifold doors which open onto the garden. There is a walk in larder and small downstairs toilet. In the basement is a delightful small study/television room/office/teenage sulking room which is quiet and warm. It does have slightly restricted headroom and the original worn and steep brick stairs, and the owner cannot take responsibility for the safety of anyone using it.
Upstairs, there are 3 double bedrooms, one of which, because of the historic 'flying freehold', is in fact in the rear of the house next door. That bedroom also has an ensuite shower room with wc. There is a large family bathroom for the other 2 bedrooms. The middle room has twin beds and the main bedroom has a super-king double bed which can be converted into twin single beds.
NOTE: The staircase is very steep and therefore the house is not suitable for disabled people or unsupervised toddlers. No visiting pets.The owner has a dog who does visit, but the house is cleaned very thoroughly after her departure.
