Oades Cottage is a charming, detached, Grade II Listed country cottage, in an elevated position in the heart of the rural village of Byworth, close to Petworth, and with some lovely, far reaching rural views. The cottage is believed to have origins dating from the 18th Century, which has been extended over the years and has attractive elevations being a combination of red brick and stone under a clay tile roof. The very well presented accommodation includes many period features as well as two working fireplaces. On the ground floor the entrance hall has a cloakroom off and also gives access to the sitting room which has a high, vaulted ceiling with exposed beams plus a fireplace fitted with a Jetmaster fire. There are also some lovely rural views. A pair of glazed doors open into the conservatory, that is a good size, with wooden flooring and electric heating, and which overlooks and opens onto the garden. From the hall, steps lead down to the lovely, cosy, dual aspect kitchen/breakfast room, fitted with a range of wall and base units incorporating a fridge and dishwasher, as well as a sink and marble and wooden worktops. An electric Everhot cooker is fitted, with a cupboard housing the LPG gas boiler to one side. There is also a fireplace fitted with a woodburning stove. From the hall a staircase rises to the first floor where there are two double bedrooms, a small single bedroom, a bathroom and shower room.

Outside, the property is approached over an entrance drive, with parking for a car and with steps leading up to the house, but also to a separate building providing a home office and a utility room. Steps lead up to a path that runs through the front garden past the front door to the rear garden, which is very pretty. The garden includes an area of lawn, with mature hedging, steps leading to a raised terrace, a lower gravel path, mature hedges and trees and some superb rural views over open countryside, to Petworth and the South Downs.
