Have you been searching for a wonderful and private family home with plenty of space for the children, indoor and outdoor entertaining, and within easy reach of schools a thriving town and the South Downs? Collingwood House may just be the answer.
A light and modern four detached home in the Wallands area of Lewes. The house is in an elevated position affording lovely views including the South Downs. There is off road parking for 2/3 cars and a large detached double garage which has power and offers the potential to create a detached self contained annexe (subject to planning). This could therefore provide the option of multi -generational living or space for growing children or guests.
You enter the house (which spans over 2,120 sq ft) via a covered entrance porch and into the hallway. The stairs are straight ahead, which because the house is ‘upside down’ in its layout, leads to the kitchen, utility room, living room, dining room and master bedroom with en-suite shower room. On the ground floor can be found a double bedroom with window facing the front and two double wardrobes. Back into the hallway can be found another double bedroom which is double aspect facing the front and the side. This room is currently being used as a study. There is another double bedroom on this floor which is located at the back of the house and has a window to the side. The family bathroom is located on this floor with a frosted window to the side, panelled bath, bidet, W/C and wash hand basin. There is a useful storage cupboard in the hallway behind the staircase.
Up on the first floor there is the main living room which is double aspect facing the front and side. There are double french doors which lead into the dining room which has a window to the side and double patio doors leading out to the rear garden. There is a door from the dining room which leads back out onto the landing. The kitchen is located next to the dining room and faces onto the private rear garden. The kitchen is fully fitted with plenty of wall and base units with under counter lighting, integrated dishwasher, integrated BOSCH double oven and integrated four ring gas hob. The kitchen is large enough for a table and chairs. The utility room leads directly from the kitchen with a window to the side and a door opening out onto the rear garden. The utility room consists of base storage units, sink and drainer and plumbing and space for a washing machine and is where the boiler is currently housed.
Back out on to the landing can be found a separate toilet with a window to the side and a linen cupboard. The other room on this floor is the main master bedroom which measures 15’7 x 11’10 and offers lovely views over the front of the house. This room has double fitted wardrobes, and a built in wardrobe. There is also a good sized en-suite with frosted window to the side W/C, wash hand basin and a separate shower cubicle. The landing
Outside to the front there is a gravelled driveway which is accessed by driving down the neighbouring house’s driveway. Collingwood Wood house has right of access over Christie House’s driveway. The gravelled driveway for Collingwood House provides parking for two or three vehicles. The double garage measures 19’2 x 18’3 with a door to the side, two windows facing the rear, an automated up and over double door and power. The tiled roof has a good pitch on it which lends itself well to be converted into a guest bedroom with en suite facilities, or even a double storey annexe (subject to the necessary planning). This could provide fantastic flexibility for a variety of different uses.
Heading from the garage towards the house is a brick pathway leading to the front door. The pathway continues down the side of the house and leads directly to the rear garden. There is lawn to the left and right of this pathway to the front of the house, and also some lawn to the left side of the house. The rear garden is flat and private with a raised bank at the back of the garden and down one side of the house which has a pathway leading back down to the driveway at the bottom of the plot.
