South Down Lodge is twin gable fronted house, traditionally constructed circa 1930 of mellow brick cavity wall elevations, upper parts tile hung (gable end), all under a pitched 'clay tile' roof, with central dormer window. The present owner having been in residence for two decades, has consistently adapted and modernised the family home. Works have included the creation of a bespoke Kitchen/Day room that is flooded with light via the southerly aspect with lavishly fitted kitchen with under floor heating. The accommodation found over three floors is highly adaptable and ideal for modern day family living. The garden plot is believed to extend to just under 0.2 acre and is approached via a broad block paved driveway with turning circle, secure parking for many vehicles, comfortably six, whilst also providing access to the detached single garage. The rear garden is a true feature, particularly private and wholly south facing, with broad raised sun terrace ideal for entertaining and eating al fresco. Steps lead to a broad expanse of lawn, fully enclosed and interspaced with specimen trees and hardy annuals. Adjacent to the drive way is an area of shrubland which formerly housed a detached garage/outbuilding, therein lies the potential to replace this structure, all subject to attaining the appropriate consents, both building and planning. All mains are connected to the property, with gas fired heating serving panel radiators appointed throughout.
South Down Lodge is conveniently located off the Brighton Road to the west of the town centre. Lewes is affectionately described as a small town with a big heart. Historians believe the name derives from the Old English ‘hlaews’ (‘hills’ or ‘mounds’) as Lewes is built into the slopes either side of the Ouse Valley. The County town has long been known for its spirit of independence and the inhabitants are proud of its significant history stretching back to Saxon times. There are lots of things to do in and around the county town. Lewes is a great place to shop with so many independent, antique and quirky shops. It’s also the perfect place to stop for a bite to eat or a drink in one of the eclectic number of pubs. Lewes also boasts a working brewery situated in the heart of the community on the banks of the Ouse. Commuters abound with mainline railway station (London/Victoria just over the hour) found at the bottom of Station Street. There are three supermarkets, the acclaimed independent Depot cinema, leisure centre, tertiary college, along with well attended primary and senior schools. The universities of Sussex and Brighton and the coast at Brighton are found 6 and 9 miles away respectively and the famous Glyndebourne Opera House is about 4 miles away. The Downs and local countryside are a paradise for walkers, cyclists and nature lovers. Lewes is situated just off the South Downs way and within the magnificent South Downs National Park.
