Take a look at this huge Grade II listed town centre house in East Sussex priced at £3 million and previously owned by a princess
It’s not very often you get such a substantial home in the heart of a town centre, which is probably why this ten bedroom property has been described as ‘perhaps the finest house in Lewes’.
This Georgian-fronted Grade II Listed family home has a large garden, distant southerly views, garages and parking right in the middle of Lewes.
The estate agents say Hill Lodge is perhaps the finest house in Lewes. It is a grand family home with a breathtaking hallway and impressive staircase rising to a galleried landing.
The rooms are characterised by light and space, elegant and well-proportioned, with high ceilings, large windows, original plasterwork, fireplaces and cast iron tapestry rails to the principal rooms.
Sitting at the top of the town, on the south side of the High Street, Hill Lodge has far-reaching views of the Downs, towards the sea, and is a short walk to the town centre and train station.
Hill Lodge is Listed, Grade II, within the protection of the Conservation Area and South Downs National Park. With deeds from the late 1700s, the house has evolved through the Georgian, Victorian and Edwardian periods to provide a spacious, simple and flexible layout. Hill Lodge changed hands three times in the last one hundred years and was once owned by Princess Chandra Cox of Siam. For the past 55 years Hill Lodge has been a multiple-generation family home.
