We engaged John Pardey Architects to develop a small scheme at this gateway site to the county town of Lewes.
A 5 minute walk from the town centre, this development comprises five houses: a terrace of three townhouses to the front of the site and two mews houses nestled to the rear.
The terraced houses are three storeys with an elevated garden at first floor level, sheltering the parking below. Sympathetically designed, these light grey brick and composite tile hung houses feature an expanse of windows throughout, the most striking being the oriel windows to the front elevation which lend the houses their distinctive forms. The mews houses to the rear are two storey with their own gardens and off street parking. Again of light grey brick and composite tile, they are quiet and private houses in their design and outlook.
