Magnificent mansions – Rarely available Regency and Georgian properties for sale in Lewes

25th August 2020

Our Lewes Town and Country branch certainly have the prime pick of the property portfolio in such a historical town. We are very fortunate to be able to market Grade II listed buildings large and small fairly regularly, but also a stunning mix of new build properties too. However, it’s not often that we see large and entire family homes come to the market on the scale of the two magnificent offerings we have for sale in Lewes this month…

Sussex House, High Street -  5 bedrooms, 4 reception rooms, 5 bathrooms -  asking price  £2,500,000

This immaculate property at the heart of Lewes, sprawling over four floors is simply breathtaking. Take the virtual tour and see for yourself how old and new have been beautifully combined to create a unique space in this magnificent red brick Georgina home. Original marble fireplaces roll top baths, polished concrete, curved windows, and internal shutters are just a few of the finishing touches that speak of the luxury lifestyle this home has offered over so many years.

The entrance itself is grand enough, with a grand canopied porch with Doric columns and a gorgeous solid wood front door. Within the entrance hall is a wide-sweeping red-carpeted staircase leading to the first floor of three spacious bedrooms and a family bathroom. Further up on the second floor is a versatile mix of rooms ideal for multi-generational living, including an exquisite vintage-style wooden kitchen with butlers sink and brass taps with clay brick flooring, dining space, plus an en-suite bathroom to the two bedrooms and a third large bedroom/sitting room.

The lower ground floor basement level has been transformed into an uber-modern living space with a dining room, kitchen, cinema room, boot room, and utility room. Just outside is a tranquil landscaped garden ideal for relaxing or entertaining.  

The varied and unique space in this house lends itself to so many different family dynamics. The location itself is surrounded by the beautiful South Downs, boutique shops and restaurants, and within walking distance to the train station with direct routes to London and Brighton and the area is spoilt for choice for well-regarded schools.

Coombe House, Malling Street – 6 bedrooms, 3 receptions, 2 bathrooms – asking price £850,000

Coombe House is an impressive and elegantly fronted Regency Home packed full of original features. Take a few steps up to the curved double-fronted door nestled between the large symmetrical sash windows, and step into the entrance hall that leads seamlessly into the 12-seater dining space. The drawing room is a fantastic entertaining space; with high ceilings, stripped wood floor, intricate cornicing and ceiling roses, a cosy wood-burning stove, and French double doors leading out to the substantial turfed garden lined with mature trees, creating a natural border between the property and the foot of the South Downs. In addition, the garden features a vegetable patch and a central ornamental pond.

Adorning the stairwell is a huge arched feature window that fills the ground floor with natural light. Some of the 5 bedrooms here have original marble and stone fireplaces juxtaposed with the modern tiled bathroom and shower rooms. On its own on the second floor is a large master bedroom with views out to Lewes Racecourse – an ideal spectator spot on race days.

The property gives the sense of a relaxed way of life, enjoying the bright and airy space within and the outside space that’s ideal for sharing. A short stroll into the town takes you to the famous Harvey’s Brewery, enjoying the sites of the River Ouse and indulging in a spot of antique shopping.
