Description

A substantial detached country house of handsome 1950's architecture, affording elegant and spacious accommodation of about 3153 sq ft. Set well back off the C7 behind mature hedges and gates providing a great deal of privacy, the property is ideally located of the fringe of Kingston village providing access to Lewes and the mainline railway station (1.7 miles door to door). Castlemead is traditionally constructed circa 1950 of mellow brick cavity wall elevations, upper parts tile hung (gable end) in part, with remainder rendered and colour washed, all under a pitched 'clay tile' roof. The present owners, in their third decade in residence, have consistently adapted and modernised their family home. Works have included a Kitchen extension with a subsequent refit in 2017 and flooring replaced this year; a Garage with double bedroom over in 2005, which could be further adapted into self contained annex accommodation; the addition of a garden room/shed in 2014, a refit of the en suite bathroom in 2015 and Karndean flooring laid throughout the Drawing Room in 2016. The garden plot is believed to extend to just under 0.5 acre and is approached via a broad block paved driveway with turning circle, secure parking and access to the garage. Predominantly laid to lawn, both the front and rear gardens afford total privacy, all enclosed by established evergreens, interspersed by well stocked flower borders and vegetable beds. Mains drainage, water and electricity are connected to the property, with oil fired heating serving panel radiators appointed throughout.
