Will somebody please tell me how this grey cardboard shoebox was added to one of Lewes's proudest houses? The inside photographs show a standard at war with good taste.

While it's not to my taste it's not my house. The blurb says they've renovated the entire house and therefore securing the house's future. I don't have a problem with it.

Not my taste either, but I would say the additions don't detract from it, it'll hardly drag the area down.
Variety is the spice of life after all.

I actually really like it. Sensitively designed but clearly modern. Far better than a pastiche. I presume the bricks are the same and the colours will align as they weather

I've passed this several times and rather admired it. I think it improves what is a rather ugly original house

I don't really care too much either way, but I know that the house was in very good nick when the current owners bought it a few years ago. The idea they have somehow secured it's future is total poppy cock. They refitted what was already a very well maintained house because they are absolutely loaded and fancied a change.

Sorry to be the one to tell you Lewes Voter, but the problem is, you have no taste.

I agree it's hideous, but the view of the back reveals the full horror, visible from much of Southover. There was nothing wrong with the house before, now it's grotesque. More money than taste.

I like the interior shots, but the full exterior picture looks like something being supported by unsuitable bookends.

I think it is someone's Father who owns an airline hence the massive amount of cash to splurge, they also have about 10 cars and numerous household staff from what I have observed on my daily walks which happen to go past their house! how the other half live!!! of course this is merely speculation and could all be rubbish but I do like a bit of local gossip!!

I quite like the old house, and I quite like the new structures. Together, they look terrible. And what's going on the fugly staircase? If you're going to spend loads of dosh on the interior, at least spend some of it installing a modern staircase. Flip!!

Having been inside its really very nice, it's a great shame that a few doors up the house looks derelict and not cared for . What idiot owns a 1 point something million pound house and let's the whole steer down by not even cutting the hedge ,

I think the derelict house a few doors up is owned by Wycherley Estate Agents, as their family residence.

I like it but only noticed it earlier this year.
Bella: I don't think at least five years, more like two or three. The lady that sold Rykehurst, rented a house in Malling Street opposite the car park in the Cliffe near the framers.
