Castle View – experience a View to a Thrill this weekend

5th November 2019

Our Lewes Town & Country branch are delighted to launch The Castle View Apartments, a development of three beautiful one-bedroom apartments created in one of Lewes’s quintessential High Street buildings. No. 73 High Street has 17th century origins and attractive 18th century cladding and some late medieval jettying – all lovely historical features which make this building so iconic and a magnet for a new generation of Lewes home buyers. 

 Originally a private family house, the building became a shop and from the 1850s was home and studio to the first portrait photographer in Lewes – Daniel Blagrove, who remodelled the fine curved first-floor window in the late 19th century. His studios continued here for over forty years and we love to imagine how many grand visitors he had sitting for portraits in his studio.

 Today, the top floors of the house have been converted into contemporary boutique apartments, each with stunning direct views of Lewes Castle, possibly the best available views in the town? We will let you decide! The space has been well-planned to deliver light and airy accommodation with appealing open-plan layouts and good storage. The bedrooms each have en-suite shower rooms. The specification includes high-quality quartz worktops, engineered timber floors and a range of integrated appliances. 

Fine apartment living in the heart of Lewes

Our Director David Beaken has a lot to say about these great new apartments "Castle View offers fine apartment living in the heart of Lewes. We have done a lot of work for Sussex Properties Ltd but this is by far the most exciting project we have worked together on. I know it sounds like we are labouring the point, but the views really are out of this world! The building has been sympathetically refurbished combining period charm with contemporary design, the finish is second to none. The location is ideal, Castle View is just a stroll to the renowned pubs, boutiques and artisan markets which make Lewes legendary.”

Lewes railway station is within 5 minutes’ walk too, with fast commuter services to London, Gatwick and along the South Coast. Each apartment has a new 125-year lease and. Prices start at £269,950. Brighton is just a short drive away too, and there is even a bus service direct to Brighton if you like to take the scenic route! Lewes town itself is an eclectic mix of artisan and boutique shops along the high street, along with plenty of restaurants and cafes for socialising, and a good stock of traditional pubs, fuelled by Lewes' own famous Harvey's brewery.
