A lovely picturesque period home, in a tucked away location very close to Lewes, with wonderful views and gardens. Well arranged, bright and interesting accommodation over two floors in good decorative order.  Lots of parking space for 3 tenant cars on a shared drive.

The house is part of a small collection of converted farm buildings just minutes away from Lewes (see photos for map with more details).

The ground floor comprises an entrance hall, living room, kitchen/breakfast room, conservatory, utility room, boot room and cloakroom with wc.

The spacious living room (27’0” x 13’9”) includes a fireplace with eco woodburning stove and attractive views of the front and rear gardens.  The living room opens out onto a large conservatory (26’6” x 15’3”) which easily fits sofa and chairs as well as a dining table, with french doors  opening onto both front and rear gardens. The living room also opens on to a 12’0” x 10’0” area, currently used as a childs play room but works just as well as dining space or study. The large kitchen has good quality oak units, corian worktops, and space for a breakfast table and four chairs. It faces east so gets morning sunshine. It has a dishwasher, large fridge, double oven and large brand new induction hob. The adjacent utility room includes a washing machine, tumble dryer and sink, and leads through to a glazed conservatory-style boot room which opens onto the rear garden.  

The second floor comprises a principal double bedroom with attached shower room, 3 further double bedrooms and a family bathroom.

The principal bedroom (17’9” x 15’9”) is light and spacious with built in full-height mirrored sliding doors to lots of clothes hanging and storage space, and has an en-suite bathroom with shower and w/c.  The second double bedroom is also large (16’9” x 13’9”) , with excellent built-in storage space.  Both face east and get morning light and views to the front garden and pond. The third bedroom (14’9”x 11’0”) and fourth bedroom (11’0” x 9’1”) both comfortably take double beds and include westerly views of the rear gardens and are situated either side of the bathroom, which includes a large double ended bath, separate shower and w/c.

The house is available to let unfurnished but with some curtains.

The house has excellent central heating with a new highly efficient oil boiler replaced in 2023. The central heating also extends to the conservatory on easily adjustable radiator valves if needed during the winter.

Car parking for three tenant cars is available outside the house and on the entrance driveway.  We have a large double garage workshop in which some large tenant items may be stored if needed (there is also a dry, boarded loft to store boxes in the house). Space for storing bicycles is also available. 

Shared gardens and drive

The house used to be the farmers cottage and there is an adjacent cow barn which has been converted into a 2 bed dwelling. This is where the landlords live. They are a relaxed, happy and respectful professional couple with a 7 year old son. The house’s conservatory and the barn’s kitchen both face west and open onto a wide terrace so there is some sharing of this outside space. The gardens are sunny all day and the terrace gets sun until late in the evening.

The generous gardens total 0.9 acres and are shared. At the front is a large shallow pond, visible from the master bedroom. The garden at the back is large with a good sized area for children's games. Mown paths through long grass that wind around the far parts of the garden where there are apple, plum and pear trees, a large children's trampoline, and a veggie patch that can be shared.  From the house and garden there are some wonderful views over surrounding countryside towards the South Downs.   


Great peaceful location, set well back from the road on a shared private drive. Only 1 mile away from Lewes.  The house sits right on the boundary with the South Downs National Park.  It is approx 20 mins walk to Lewes Tesco's and 6 minutes drive to the railway station (London Victoria 65 mins)  Good road links with the A27 just 4 minutes drive away and the A26 offers a beautiful drive all the way to London.  Good schools nearby. The property is surrounded by fields and the other buildings in Lower Stoneham including stables for horses.
