The equally extensive lounge overlooks the War Memorial, the focus of the November 5 celebrations, which allows light to flood in from two windows.

The property would therefore make an ideal buy to let investment as well as a good home. The current owner has lived there for 14 years and is only selling for family reasons.
ABOUT THE AREA
Lewes is a small town with a big heart. Most historians agree that Lewes' name derives from the Old English 'hlaews' ('hills' or 'mounds') as Lewes is built into the slopes either side of the Ouse Valley, giving its inhabitants sturdy legs to go with their stout hearts. it was here that Simon de Montfort fought the Battle of Lewes against the King and where Tom Paine, author of 'The Rights of Man' once lived. Lewes has long been known for its spirit of independence and the inhabitants are proud of its signiﬁcant history stretching back to Saxon times. But it's not all about the history.
