A Grade II Listed semi-detached town house built circa 1730 and steeped in a wealth of history, having once been home to the famous author Eve Garnett.

A surprisingly spacious and bright cottage located on Keere Street, one of the most sought after and photographed streets in Lewes. The accommodation, in brief, offers two reception rooms, useful basement and three bedrooms all with good head height.

The property is arranged over three floors and features a beautiful terraced rear garden with small useful studio/workshop perched between the terraces.

The main entrance has tiled flooring with door leading through to the dining room which features chimney breast and tiled hearth, stripped wooden floor and door to a good-sized cellar.

The sitting room also features stripped floorboards, built-in cupboard along with large window which overlooks the lower courtyard patio. Modern kitchen offers a range of

floor and wall mounted units, solid wood work surfaces, stainless steel built-in oven with gas hob above, built-in fridge, freezer and dishwasher and space for washing machine.

Door leading out to the garden. On the first floor is a good-sized landing with under stairs storage cupboard, two double bedrooms, one with a large range of built-in cupboards and attractive feature fireplace, the other with shelving and airing cupboard.

Family bathroom with a white suite comprising bath, wash basin, WC, storage cupboards and an electric shower fitted above the bath. There is also a separate cloakroom with WC and wash basin. Located on the second floor is the master

bedroom which offers a double-aspect of beautiful roof top views with the South Downs beyond and a range of built-in storage cupboards and wardrobe.

Outside: A pretty terraced garden is enclosed by the very impressive historic town wall and offers four levels, all stocked with fruit trees, perennial plants, shrubs and flower borders.

There is a well established Apple and Pear tree. Between the terraces is a small studio/workshop with power and light and within the lower level is a small patio garden with slate floor and storage to the side.


Conveniently situated within a very short walk of Grange gardens and Lewes mainline railway station with services to London Victoria (just over the hour).
