An idyllic mid-terrace, 18th Century, Grade II Listed, cottage cleverly combined some years ago and subsequently renovated, updated and maintained by the current owners to a very high standard over the last 14 years. Great thought has gone into retaining many period features including exposed oak beams, inglenook fireplaces and original wood paneling in this deceptively roomy cottage.

Situated in a quiet, rural location the property is a dog walkers dream with direct access to wonderful Downland walks.

2-3 Malthouse Cottages has attractive stone elevations, with brick quoin detailing around the windows and doors, a clay-tiled roof and is approached via a pretty courtyard garden at the front.

The entrance hall, once used as a dining room, has a limestone floor and a decorative inglenook fireplace. This leads to a lobby area with a cloakroom and approach to the sitting room - floored with solid oak throughout.

The sitting room is a good size and has another lovely inglenook fireplace with a wood-burning stove and cupboard storage and shelving on each side. The pretty kitchen/breakfast room is fitted with a good range of solid wood wall and base units, black granite and oak worktops, a fully integrated dishwasher and plumbing for a washing machine. An oil fired Stanley range cooker provides heating and hot water as well as cooking facilities and has proved to be very economical since its installation. Off the kitchen/breakfast room is a walk-in larder and a door leading into the garden.

On the first floor a bright and spacious landing leads to three good size double bedrooms and a well-appointed family bathroom.

Outside the garden is approached over an attractive paved and planted terrace together with a stream that runs along the rear of all the cottages. Steps lead up to the gardens, with views towards the South Downs, divided into areas of lawn, mature borders and raised beds and a large, well-insulated garden shed/workshop. A gate at the end of the garden leads onto a farm track, which also provides vehicular rear access to the property.

2-3 Malthouse Cottages is quietly tucked away in the Downland Hamlet of Bignor, right at the foot of the South Downs and a mile or so from the village of Sutton, with its popular White Horse Pub. Bignor is located just under 6 miles south of Petworth, a picturesque and historic old market town dominated by Petworth House and park, the town has an excellent range of quality independent and specialist shops, various cafes, pubs, restaurants and other amenities.

Almost equidistant is the historic old market town of Arundel with its 11th century castle, stunning Cathedral and a plenty of interesting shops, restaurants and museums. For those that enjoy beach walks, just 4 miles further south are the beaches of Clymping (also spelt Climping) and Littlehampton. Midhurst (11 miles) has an excellent range of shops as well as the world renowned Cowdray Park Polo Ground and the Cowdray Golf Club.

The nearest mainline station is at Pulborough, about 6 miles which provides a service to Gatwick, London Bridge and Victoria (70 mins) and along the coast. Chichester (14 miles) provides a broader choice with all the major supermarkets and its well renowned Festival Theatre. In addition there is horseracing, golf and lots for the motor enthusiast at the famous Goodwood Estate (13 miles). The area provides a good choice of state and independent schools for both boys and girls.

Oil fired central heating via the Stanley Range Cooker, mains water and electricity. Shared private drainage.
