A very pretty quintessential downland cottage with the benefit of detached outbuildings, located within a much favored village surrounded by the Goodwood Estate.
Set within grounds of approximately 0.3 acres, with far reaching downland views, this charming Grade II listed cottage is positioned within a elevated position in the centre of the village.
With brick and flint elevations and a wealth of period features throughout, the property is arranged over two floors. Upon entering there is good sized entrance hall which opens through to a lovely kitchen/breakfast room with a feature Aga. Beyond there is a dining room with a charming inglenook fireplace. Within the northern arm of the property there is a triple aspect sitting room with a wood burner and double doors opening onto a patio. Completing the ground floor there is a useful study and a cloakroom. Upstairs are three bedrooms (one en suite) and an attractive family bathroom.
The outbuildings are a particular feature. These comprise a substantial and detached oak framed garage block incorporating a first floor studio room and a ground floor utility room and further storage room. To the side of the garage there is a further detached studio office, in our opinion ideal for home working. Behind the outbuildings and main cottage there is the main garden, which provides lovely views towards the downs in all directions. To the rear of the garden there is a garden store and a dog kennel. There is a further sloped garden to the front of the cottage, bordered by an attractive picket fence and gate opening onto a grass pathway leading to the adjacent church.
The cottage is approached via a gated gravel driveway which provides ample parking for a number of vehicles.
The property occupies a charming, elevated position in the heart of the highly regarded South Downs village of East Dean, some 7 miles to the north of Chichester, close to Goodwood and with far-reaching country views over the Goodwood estate. The village has an excellent public house (Star & Garter), well known for good food and hospitality and Singleton to the west has a primary school, as well as being home to the Weald and Downland Museum. A further popular primary school, along with local shopping facilities, may be found at West Dean. The Cathedral city of Chichester offers an excellent range of shopping and cultural amenities, including the renowned Festival Theatre, galleries, museums and restaurants. A mainline railway station at Chichester offers services to London (Victoria and Gatwick), whilst Haslemere to the north provides a faster service to London (Waterloo). Leisure pursuits within the area include polo from Cowdray Park, horse racing and the annual Festival of Speed and Revival Meetings at Goodwood, golf and tennis. Sailing may be enjoyed from the many centres around Chichester Harbour and both kite and windsurfing from the well-known beaches at West Wittering.
