Description

A fine detached four bedroom family house, set within beautifully tended and structured gardens of approaching one acre. All with immediate panoramic views, of the surrounding countryside (designated as of outstanding natural beauty) that forms part of the South Downs National Park.

Found on the fringe of the village and within a straight forward conveyance to Lewes. Built just before the second world war in 1939, Chaylemore as it is found today has evolved into the most welcoming family home with light, bright airy accommodation throughout the ground and first floor. The situation of the property allows the majority of the rooms to have an east, south or westerly aspect and immediate outlook over the gardens and views beyond to the Downs.

Our clients in residence now for three decades have embarked upon a detailed and considerate modernisation, works have included the replacement of the original crittal windows with 'Rationel' wooden framed double glazed windows throughout the living accommodation including French doors to the south facing sun terrace and garden. All Velux windows have been installed and well maintained. Re worked and tastefully fitted Kitchen and Utility Room. Fully updated central heating system with new radiators and the oil fired boiler. All electrical specification has been re configured and in parts re-wired.

The formal gardens provide considerable off road 'gated parking' via two access points, the principle entrance is found to the north eastern boundary brick paved driveway that provides access to the integral double garage. The garden whilst providing considerable aesthetic appeal, an area of tranquility also are particularly productive by way of the stablished orchard with a variety of fruit trees and the neighbouring vegetable garden with Asparagus amongst many other seasonal yields.

All in all, a home and lifestyle to aspire to, combined with the peace of mind that you are purchasing a well loved and cherished family residence yet offering considerable scope to further adapt and enhance the existing footprint. The internal double garage would convert into further residential or recreational living space. Mains water and electricity are appointed to the property, oil fired central heating serves panel radiators appointed throughout, with private drainage. Lewes District Council tax band G.


Location

The village of Iford combines a mixture of enchanting period homes that intertwine with the Iford Estate, a mixed farm situated wholly within the South Downs National Park. Countryside walks are aplenty with excellent riding found on the many nearby bridle paths. The parish Church (St Nicholas) and Iford Hall are within level walking distance, whilst the civil parish and village form a strong bond and community amongst its residents and the workers of the estate.

Nearby Lewes (2 miles) is described as a small town with a big heart and 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. Commuters abound with mainline railway station (London/Victoria just over the hour) found at the bottom of Station Street, which in turn leads off the High 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 on the outskirts of Ringmer. 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.
