A charming Grade II listed detached cottage in a superb rural location with direct access to stunning downland walks. The cottage has immense character and is full of period features and is approached over a gravel driveway. Like many old cottages the front door is rarely used, and access is via the 'back door' which opens in to a small entrance hall and then an inner lobby area. Off the lobby is a door to the bright, spacious and well fitted kitchen/breakfast room which has good amounts of storage, a two-door gas fired Aga and French doors out on to a terraced area. There is also a small utility room with plumbing for a washing machine and a sink and drainer. The drawing room is dual aspect and has a working fireplace in one corner. Also, on the ground floor is a family/dining room.

Upstairs, there are three double bedrooms, one with an ensuite bathroom. There is a further small bedroom/study and a family bathroom.

Outside, the garden is a particular feature and has been arranged over various different levels, mostly laid to lawn with mature trees, shrubs and borders with far reaching views of the South Downs. A pretty cascading water feature culminates in a delightful pond adjacent to the terrace outside the kitchen. There is a good size garden shed and a greenhouse for the keen gardener. On the upper level of the garden is access to the spacious annexe/office which is fitted with good amounts of storage and workspace, this would be optional and if not required will be used for storage. A staircase leads down to the interior of the garage which also houses a separate shower room and wc.
