About this property

  • A stunning Grade II listed and sympathetically updated three bedroom cottage dating from 1742. Internally, there is a dual aspect sitting room, with wood burning stove. The generous dining room leads to the kitchen/breakfast room, with an attractive range of bespoke cabinets, a breakfast island, gas-fired AGA and additional gas hob. This impressive space has a vaulted roof offering attractive garden views and French doors leading to the patio and garden. The oak flooring runs throughout the ground floor. A staircase rises to the first floor landing that retains original pitch pine wall panels. Off the landing, there are two principal bedrooms and a family bathroom. Further stairs lead to the second floor with a further bedroom and recently converted shower room.

    To the rear of the house is a gravel patio which offers privacy and seclusion. Steps lead up to a lawn area extending to the rear boundary. There is a paved terrace with views to the South Downs and the whole garden is enclosed by mature shrubs.
