Malt Cottage is a unique, detached house, now in need of re-arranging and refurbishment, offering considerable potential to create a spacious 'one-off' home in the centre of Petworth, off Angel Street. The property is quietly tucked away behind a number of period properties and has some lovely views, including over the Shimmings Valley in the distance. Believed to have origins dating from the mid 1900's the external elevations are a mixture of brick, stone and tile hanging. Planning was granted in 2021 to create a light and spacious two bedroom property – SDNP/21/01467/HOUS. However, it is also considered there may be an opportunity for an ingoing buyer to alter the internal layout to suit their own requirements, subject to any necessary consents.

The Cottage is approached via a private gateway on Angel Street with a path opening into a private courtyard garden and on to the front door. The accommodation is currently arranged as two separate self-contained properties, the ground floor as a one bedroom apartment, with a double bedroom and ensuite bathroom, sitting room and kitchen. Upstairs are two reception rooms, an area currently fitted with a stainless steel sink and drainer, a separate wc and a study. A door leads from the rear sitting room onto a small balcony with steps down to the garden.

Outside, a path leads past the front courtyard garden, along the side of the house into the pretty rear garden. The garden includes beds, planted with a variety of plants and shrubs, with a large terrace at one end, from which there are some far reaching views over the Shimmings Valley, enclosed by a combination of wooden fencing and stone walls.

Malt Cottage is quietly located at the eastern edge of the historic old market town of Petworth, within easy walking distance of the town centre. The property is located in a part of the town which has changed very little over the years, being situated on part of the street which is made up of only period properties and is within easy walking distance of the shops. There is also access to the Shimmings Valley with lovely rural walks within a short distance. Petworth is dominated by Petworth House with its beautiful 750 acres of parkland designed by Capability Brown and the town has an excellent range of independent local shops and businesses catering for everyday needs. Midhurst is located about 6 miles to the west and Pulborough, with its mainline train station, is about 5 miles to the east. The City of Chichester (14 miles) provides a broader choice, all the major supermarkets and its well renowned Festival Theatre. In addition, there is a horseracing, golf and lots for the motor enthusiast at the famous Goodwood Estate (11 miles). The area provides a good choice of state and independent schools. Gatwick, London Bridge and Victoria (70 mins), alternatively Haslemere Station (11 miles) has a fast service to Waterloo (57 mins).
