1 The River House forms one of a pair of contemporary riverside houses, which were designed by the award winning Lap Chan Architects. The property has been designed and built in the vernacular of the boat yard, which is understood to have formerly stood on the site. Externally, the house presents attractive principally mellow cedar clad elevations, under a zinc roof. Internally the house has been designed with modern living in mind, and has a wonderful sense of space and light.
On the raised ground floor, there is a magnificent open plan 31’3 (9.53m) south west facing kitchen/dining room, which is fitted to one end with a range of attractive cream fronted units with a Smeg double oven and hob, together with a Miele dishwasher and a boiling hot water tap. From the kitchen/dining room a glazed door leads out onto a wide garden terrace.
From the kitchen/dining room, a staircase leads up to the magnificent sitting room, which has a high arched ceiling, and a full-height window to one end which floods the room with light. To one wall there is floor-to-ceiling book shelving with an integrated desk and ladder. To one end of the sitting room is a glazed inner atrium, and from the sitting room a glazed door leads out nto a covered terrace from which there is a wonderful view towards Lewes Castle.
Features of note within the house include walnut flooring, white bathroom suites, a mezzanine level in one of the bedrooms and high arched ceilings in both the sitting room and the principal bedroom.
From the gravel parking area a short flight of steps lead up to the front door with a feature port hole window. Beyond the gravel drive, there is a 45’ long undercroft parking area, with an adjacent store room. An external spiral staircase connects the garden terrace, the balcony and the 50’ (15.24m) long landscaped garden, which has river frontage.
