Sussex Lodge is a generous and well-arranged property, built in the 1930's, with an array of flexible living spaces arranged over its two floors, as well as a detached garage and large lush gardens overlooking beautiful countryside.
The reception hall has stairs to the first floor and
double doors leading onto the sociable, open plan family and sitting rooms. The sitting room is flooded with light and enjoys far-reaching views via the large original bay window, and features a small arched window, picture rails, exposed wooden flooring and a handsome fireplace. There's also ample space for formal dining and entertaining. The substantial kitchen/breakfast room is also front-facing and benefits from two quaint arched windows and big bay window with panoramic views, as well as a wide range of bespoke wooden wall and base cabinetry and an inset range stove. Also on the ground floor are two of the property's bedrooms, both enjoying double doors opening directly onto the pretty terrace and
gardens, with the second bedroom also having considerable built-in wardrobes. They are both well served by a family bathroom and shower room adjacent.
The first-floor space houses two generous bedrooms with tranquil garden views, one of which is currently being used as a study bedroom and the other being utilised as a valuable home office. A further sizeable family bathroom completes the accommodation, with a freestanding roll top bath and a separate walkin shower cubicle.
The property lies in a highly desirable and convenient yet picturesque location, just over a mile from the mainline railway station in Lewes, with frequent services to London Victoria. The vibrant and historic county town forms part of the South Downs National Park and provides an excellent range of supermarkets, including a Waitrose, plenty of individual shops, restaurants and a variety of recreational facilities.
A wide selection of highly regarded schools also occupies the local area, including Brighton College.
The property has an attractive large lawned garden to the front and rear aspects, with a pretty brick-laid pathway and steps leading up to the main entrance, before which are further stone steps and a useful detached garage and parking space. It is made private with an array of established hedging and trees to the sides, and punctuated with a variety of flowering plants, mature fruit trees and shrubbery. Its elevated position affords striking countryside views from both aspects, with the substantial rear garden also enjoying a raised patio with steps up for sunny al fresco dining, as well as the decked patio and a useful garden store.
