A light and modern detached home in the Wallands area of Lewes, Christie House has everything that you would need. Five double bedrooms, three bathrooms, sitting room and snug, and a stunning glass vaulted dining room. This is family living in style.
There is also plenty of flexibility for this home to grow with you. One example is its fifth bedroom – with its own en suite shower room, located at the other end of the house. The room offers a fantastic guest bedroom or even annex with further potential to extend this space into the garage below. So, whether its multi-generational living or space for growing children and guests, you really can shape this home to suit.
You enter the house (which spans over 240 m2 2,600 sq ft) through a useful porch with ample storage for coats and shoes. The stairs are straight ahead, which leads to four double bedrooms, one with an en suite shower room, and a family bathroom. A large storage cupboard is located on the landing, which could be turned into an en suite for Bedroom 3 if desired. Back downstairs, head left from the entrance hall into a triple aspect sitting room with views over the garden. To the right of hallway is a modern and well-equipped kitchen/breakfast room with a useful utility room with large pantry cupboards leading in turn to a downstairs cloakroom. The kitchen leads directly onto a snug which is a quiet space to escape, sit, read and relax. From the snug is a stunning glass vaulted dining room which links the main house to the double garage with internal access, and bedroom five with plentiful storage and en suite shower room. The dining room is flooded with natural light and opens straight out onto the garden – perfect for entertaining inside and out. The plot is extremely private with mature trees and close board fencing surrounding the entire garden making it a fantastic space for entertaining and a great playground for children.
Lewes is a thriving historic town with a large array of both boutique and chain shops, pubs and restaurants alongside a good selection of supermarkets. There is plenty to see and do in this extremely interesting town, including visiting Lewes Castle, which was built within three years of the Battle of Hastings in 1066. Lewes is home to a number of small craft breweries, alongside the renowned Harvey & Son’s brewery located in the centre of the town. The town’s most important date in its active social calendar is its annual Bonfire Celebrations which have become one of the largest and most famous in the country.
From Christie Road, the heart of the town with all of its amenities can be reached within a 20 minute walk.
