A very rare Grade II listed 17th century country cottage in the most idyllic, peaceful, scenic, rural location located close to the foot of the South Downs and within the South Downs National Park. This charming country cottage has many period features including a wealth of exposed oak beams. A more recent extension created wonderfully spacious kitchen/breakfast room, with vaulted ceiling and triple aspect views over the gardens and countryside beyond, and doors opening out on to the terracing. The kitchen is well fitted with a good selection of base units and a central island with storage below. A mezzanine floor above the kitchen could be used as an office. Off the hallway is a downstairs shower room/utility room which can be used by the study/bedroom 3. The dining room opens into the sitting room which has an inglenook fireplace and woodburning stove. Stairs lead up to the main bedroom with ensuite shower room, and a further double bedroom with freestanding bath and separate cloakroom with wc and wash hand basin. From both the bedrooms there are lovely, far-reaching views.

Outside, the house is approached via a gravel driveway with ample parking. The garden includes areas of lawn, with beds and terracing, and also a garden shed, with some mature hedging and trees, also with stunning, far reaching rural views across neighbouring farmland and to the South Downs beyond.

Homemead lies in a very quiet and private, rural position, off the beaten track, yet only 5 miles from the centre of Midhurst, a picturesque and historic old market town with an excellent range of shops for everyday needs. Close by is the famous Cowdray Park Estate with its polo grounds and golf course. Chichester is about 12 miles to the south with a wider selection of shops and the renowned Festival Theatre. Goodwood, about 9 miles to the south, has horseracing, golf and motor racing. Petersfield with a mainline station offering services to London Waterloo, is about 10 miles to the west. The property is located within the South Downs National Park and has direct access to miles of open countryside.

Mains water and electricity are connected. Gas central heating and hot water serviced by an LPG tank. Private drainage.

From Midhurst, follow the A272 in the direction of Petersfield for approximately 2.1 miles and take the turning on the left signposted to Elsted and Harting. Continue on the Elsted Road for approximately 1.2 miles, taking the left fork on a sharp right hand bend signposted Didling in to Ingrams Green Lane. Follow this lane for approximately 1.6 miles when you will see a property on the left-hand side as you start to go up a hill. Homemead is the 2nd property on the left – the driveway is angled very sharply back and you may need to drive past, turn round and approach from the other direction.
