A substantial character house with a beautiful mature garden, within easy reach of Lewes town centre.
From the imposing entrance porch, the oak front door leads into the spacious entrance hall with a lovely oak turned staircase to one end. The drawing room has an impressive inglenook fireplace and is fitted with an extensive range of book shelving and display cupboards. Adjacent to the drawing room is a large double aspect study (currently utilised as a wet room) with a bay window and decorative fireplace. There is a good sized dining room/sitting room with a wood burning stove beyond which is the kitchen/breakfast room which is fitted with an extensive range of light wooden fronted units. The kitchen includes a two-oven Aga, integrated fridge and freezer. A utility area and two cloakrooms complete the ground floor accommodation.
Arranged over the first floor is a spacious principal suite comprising bedroom with fireplace and ensuite shower room, a large guest bedroom also with a fireplace, three further bedrooms, a family bathroom and a nursery/study. Other features within the house include lovely oak latch doors, some wooden floors, exposed ceiling timbers and very generous ceiling heights.
The property is approached via a sweeping gravel drive which leads past the front of the house to a wide brick paved parking and turning area, beyond which is the property's integral double garage.
Immediately to the front of the house is a lovely wide sandstone paved terrace which provides an ideal sheltered seating area. Beyond the terrace the garden is laid to sweeping expanses of lawn intersected by various clipped hedges and includes a number of mature specimen trees. There is a timber and corrugated garden store and attached to the garaging is a workshop, boiler room, log store and store. The garden at Gables provides a lovely setting for this imposing, character family home.
Gables is situated in a highly sought after location and is set well back from the Kingston Road. The property is within easy distance of the town centre and close to the mainline railway station with its regular service to London (London Victoria/London Bridge in about 68 minutes). Lewes is situated within the South Downs National Park and has a wide range of shops, cafes and restaurants, together with several supermarkets and the independent Depot Cinema. The city of Brighton and Hove is about 8.5 miles to the south west and provides a comprehensive range of cultural and shopping facilities.
From the western end of Southover High Street at the mini roundabout by The Swan Public House, continue along the Kingston Road for approximately 0.3 mile, passing a road on the right marked Cranedown and the shared entrance drive leading to Gables will be found on the right. Proceed straight ahead and the wooden gates leading to the property's private entrance drive will be found at the end.Read all
