We do love a sympathetic renovation, which is what you get with this 1960s John Schwerdt-designed modernist property in Lewes, East Sussex.

Actually, it’s more of a case of updating than renovating, with the two previous owners keeping the 1961 design pretty much intact, which means lovely open spaces, the emphasis of natural materials inside and lots of light from the oversized windows. The decor is very much in keeping with the original period too.

Oh yes, it’s also ‘on one of Lewes’ premier roads’ where houses rarely come up for sale. So a potentially desirable house in a sought after location. It might not hang around too long (if the price point for this is correct).

In terms of space, there seems to be a good amount of that too, with the single-storey property offering what is described as ‘flexible accommodation’  but currently laid out with four double bedrooms (two of which are en-suite), a 20ft living room and sun room, a 12ft dining room, a kitchen and breakfast room plus a family bathroom with separate WC.

Outside looks quite substantial looking at the images too, currently laid out with longstanding landscaped gardens, which a;spot includes a paved terraced, ornamental pond, off-street parking, a single garage, workshop and shed.

As we said, a good-sized house in a potentially sought after area. That perhaps accounts for the asking price of £1,250,000.
