Old Malling Farmhouse
A stunning and beautifully presented mid 19th century former farmhouse that was divided into two separate properties in the mid 1950’s. The property is nestled in a most private ‘tucked away’ location within walking distance of Lewes town centre and railway station yet at the same time offers a semi-rural lifestyle. There is an abundance of original character and charm which has been sensitively preserved with wonderful views across the river. The accommodation is substantial and versatile set across 3 floor with 5 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a shower room. Impressive gardens surround the property with a board and timber built studio. Available with vacant possession and no chain.
