A beautifully restored period cottage situated in a central yet peaceful position, with a lovely outlook over the Paddock.
28 Paddock Road is a beautifully restored, end of terrace Victorian cottage. The 29'6" open plan sitting/dining room/kitchen has a wonderful sense of light and space, has a particular high ceiling and includes an impressive fireplace with a cast iron basket and decorative surround. The kitchen area has a terracotta tile floor and is fitted with an extensive range of units incorporating a Neff double oven and four-burner gas hob together with an integrated Bosch dishwasher. A glazed door from the kitchen gives access to a sheltered brick paved courtyard.
The spacious principal bedroom has lovely views over the Paddock and includes a built-in wardrobe. A well-appointed bathroom and a third bedroom/study complete the first floor accommodation. The third bedroom/study has a vaulted ceiling and a glazed door which gives access to the garden. Arranged over the second floor is a further double bedroom with views over both the Paddock and the property's garden. To one side of this room there is an extensive range of built-in cupboards and drawers.
To the front of the cottage there is a small brick paved area enclosed by a brick wall. The rear garden is arranged as a series of terraces and has been beautifully landscaped and planted. The lower terrace provides a paved seating area which is bordered by a well-stocked and colourful bed with a mature hydrangea climbing the retaining wall. The second terrace is also paved and provides an ideal area for al fresco dining with two further flowerbeds and two circular clipped boxes. To the far end of the garden there is a small timber summerhouse from which there are lovely views over the rooftops and the Paddock beyond. From the courtyard adjacent to the kitchen a pedestrian gate gives access down the side of the house to Paddock Road.
28 Paddock Road lies in a sought after position below Lewes Castle and away from main roads a short distance from Lewes High Street. The house overlooks a small area of allotments with the Paddock beyond, which is a green open space.
The mainline station is 0.4 mile from the property providing a mainline service to London (London Victoria about 68 minutes). Lewes is a vibrant county town, lying within the South Downs National Park and provides an excellent range of individual shops, restaurants and recreational facilities, including the recently opened independent Depot cinema, Waitrose and Tesco supermarkets, also regular food and farmers' markets. The coastal, business and entertainment city of Brighton and Hove is some 8 miles distant.

At the traffic lights with the High Street continue straight over into Fisher Street.
