A substantial semi detached, Victorian town house of some 2,573 sq ft situated in a highly sought after position, with some magnificent far reaching views.
Originally a five bedroom Victorian house, but subsequently altered, 33 St. Anne's Crescent is a substantial and picturesque, rarely available semi detached town house. The house provides some 2,573 sq ft (including the cellar) of elegant and well-proportioned accommodation over three floors. From the entrance lobby a part-glazed stained glass door leads into the welcoming entrance hall. The drawing room has a wide bay window and a beautiful period marble fireplace with a wood burning stove flanked on either side by cupboards and bookcases. The sitting room also has a marble fireplace and glazed doors leading out to the sheltered courtyard.
The kitchen/dining room is a particular feature and is fitted with an extensive range of units with wooden work surfaces and includes an integrated dishwasher and a stainless steel two-oven range. Double doors give further access to the courtyard. A separate utility room and cloakroom complete the accommodation on the ground floor.
Arranged over the first and second floor is the principal suite comprising bedroom and bathroom, a magnificent first floor through reception room with an open fireplace (formerly two double bedrooms), two further bedrooms, a spacious family bathroom and a further cloakroom. From the rooms at the front of the house on the upper floors, there are magnificent far reaching southerly views over the town with the South Downs beyond. The house has a wealth of period features including high ceilings, panelled doors, further attractive period fireplaces, wooden floors and lovely sash windows.
Approached via a wrought iron pedestrian gate, the principal garden lies to the front of the house and is southerly facing being laid principally to lawn, with a well-stocked border to one side and enclosed in part by a mature hedge. To the rear of the house and adjacent to the kitchen/dining room and the sitting room is a sheltered courtyard with a garden store to one end.
33 St. Anne's Crescent lies within the Conservation Area in a convenient and sought after elevated position, within easy walking distance of the High Street. The station is 0.5 mile and provides a service to London (Victoria about 68 minutes). Situated in the South Downs National Park, Lewes has a range of individual shops, restaurants and several supermarkets, together with many recreational facilities and an independent three-screen cinema.
The A27 lies a short distance to the south of Lewes, and provides fast access to the A23/M23, Gatwick Airport and the national motorway network. There are an excellent range of state and private schools in the area.
Proceeding up the High Street, continue passing Shelley's Hotel on the right and St. Anne's Church on the left. At the second set of traffic lights (junction with the A275) turn left, and then immediately left again into St. Anne's Crescent and the house will be found on the left towards the end.Read all
