AN UNUSUAL AND EXCEPTIONALLY SPACIOUS
MODERN DETACHED HOUSE WITH TREMENDOUS POTENTIAL
IN A HIGHLY SOUGHT AFTER LOCATION
This substantial, individual detached house is situated in a much coveted location on rising ground on the western side of the town. St. Anne's Crescent is a long established residential area of predominantly older houses providing an ideal location for access to the many amenities of this historic County town. Lewes provides excellent shopping and other facilities along with a main line railway station. The South Coast at Brighton is about eight miles and Universities at Falmer about four miles. Gatwick Airport can be reached by car in around forty five minutes.
The property was constructed in the mid 1960's as the rectory for the Church of St Anne's and now provides an outstanding opportunity to acquire and create a fine family home. Subject to the necessary consents, there may be potential for redevelopment as a single dwelling or as smaller dwelling units.
All the rooms are of excellent proportions with the arrangement of the accommodation over the three floors having the potential to create a self-contained annexe if required. From the upper floors of the house and to the rear there are views through the trees down the Ouse Valley and to the South Downs.
As well as the large integral garage there is ample parking along with a good size, south facing, rear garden.
The exterior of the house is designed for ease of maintenance with elevations of brick and relief ceramic tile panels along with a shallow pitched and tile clad roof. Windows are double glazed and there is a modern gas fired central heating system.
