Church Cottage is a delightful Grade II listed detached house with wonderful views, in the heart of the South Downs National Park.

The property has been refurbished, yet maintains the character of an attractive period West Sussex house.

Originally constructed in the 16th century, it has undergone many sympathetic extensions over the centuries and is now a beautiful four bedroom family home with stunning views.

The farmhouse kitchen/dining room, originally a Farrier’s workshop, is now a light and spacious L-shaped room with high vaulted ceilings.

The kitchen features a range of converted antique pine dressers and cupboards with an oil fired Aga and attractive open fireplace.

The principal rooms on the ground floor are perfectly orientated to enjoy the beautiful views over the garden, across neighbouring farmland and over the adjacent St Luke’s Church.

The spacious, triple-aspect drawing room features a Jetmaster open fire, an attractive bay window and a door leading out to the garden.

The snug/playroom forms part of the original cottage with attractive beams, a large Inglenook fireplace with a wood burning stove, decorative bread oven and built in storage.

The large ground floor bedroom, with bathroom en-suite, has lovely views and generous storage and with separate access would also be suitable for letting or use by a nanny.

The bathroom has a walk-in shower and a reclaimed roll-top bath.

Stairs next to the bedroom lead to an open loft room which is currently used as a study and for storage.

There is a further, separate shower room on the ground floor.

On the first floor there are three further charming bedrooms, all with views and built-in storage.

There is also a family bathroom with exposed beams and a reclaimed roll top bath.

Church Cottage is approached through a five-bar gate which opens to a gravel driveway, providing parking for several vehicles.

A large green oak barn/garage with two open bay car ports has been used as a studio and has potential for conversion to an annexe, subject to appropriate consents.

Stairs lead from the studio to a large boarded storage area. Behind the garage is a chicken shed.

The garden wraps around the house and is mainly laid to lawn, interspersed with mature and specimen trees.

The garden has been well designed to incorporate an attractive summerhouse with electricity, which is approached under a wisteria and honeysuckle covered trellis.

A paved dining area is ideally located close to the house and offers stunning views.

There is also a large in-ground trampoline and a garden shed.

A charming courtyard, which enjoys the morning sunshine, leads from the kitchen/dining area to a fenced working vegetable garden and attractive greenhouse, complete with wood-burning stove and self-opening vents to regulate temperature.

There is also an area of woodland with a securely covered working well.

A gate leads from one side of the garden to the church and also onto a public footpath which runs across the neighbouring fields and across to Milland, ideal for long walks.

Guide Price £1,250,000.
