Property Description

Tenure: Freehold

Charles Wycherley Independent Estate Agents are proud to offer the prestigious Hill Lodge to the open market. This property is an iconic double-fronted Grade II listed house which stands on St. Annes Hill, High Street, with 500 sq.m (5,380 sq.ft.) of flexible accommodation. The property dates back to the early 1700s with a stunning Georgian fa?ade and has a most generous entrance hall with a feature Georgian staircase. The property is distinguished by large sash windows giving light accommodation with exceptional views over Southover and down the Ouse Valley between the South Downs to the English Channel. Hill Lodge has been in the same family ownership for approximately 55 years, providing the family home, an architectural business and a top floor flat with separate independent entrance. The accommodation comprises 10 bedrooms, 5 reception rooms and 3 bathrooms, together with cellarage which could easily be adapted into further living accommodation (subject to appropriate permission). The garden is south facing and large being approximately 27m, also with marvellous views. There are 3 garages and 4-5 parking spaces just yards across the road, separately valued at ?175,000. Entering the house gives immediate pleasure with an open dining hall and sight of the feature staircase and through to the garden. The main sitting room is bayed and a full 7.87m depth, a family room and west area of bathroom, breakfast room and kitchen, with the opportunity of extending into the garden outbuilding area (subject to planning permission). The first floor has large bedrooms including an 8 meter room, which could equally be a first floor sitting room and the west wing opening up amazing easterly views.

Lewes is a gem within East Sussex, the county town and a past market town, with important and attractive period buildings throughout the historic core of the High Street area and Southover. A town of great history with Lewes` Norman Castle, Bull House where Thomas Paine constructed his writings for American independence, the Town Hall with the martyrs memorial, cobbled Keere Street, Southover Grange Manor House and Gardens, Anne of Cleves House and the Priory Cluniac Monastery, demolished by King Henry VIII. Lewes is surrounded by the South Downs National Park, with the River Ouse running through the centre of the town within the valley and running down to the English Channel. Close to the Universities at Falmer and Brighton with the city centre off the A27 and connecting to the A23/M23 Gatwick-London motorway. Lewes has excellent schools, however there are also highly regarded public schools such as Brighton, Eastbourne and Ardingly College and Bedes. Glyndebourne Opera House is close by. Lewes is a commuting town, connected by rail to London (Victoria approx. 65 mins & London Bridge 80 mins) and the station is just over 5 minutes` walk from Hill Lodge.
