1 and 2 Holts Cottages are believed to have been constructed in the 1700s, with both having a third bedroom, utility room and cloakroom added in recent years.

With brick and flint elevations the properties sit within large plots and are accessed from private drives to each side.

On the ground floor each cottage has two reception rooms, a kitchen, utility room and a cloakroom, while upstairs each has three bedrooms and a family bathroom.

The large gardens wrap around three sides of the properties.

1 Holts Cottages has a large Tarmac drive providing off-street parking for a number of vehicles, while 2 Holts Cottages has a large garden store in addition to plenty of space for off-street parking.

1 Holts Cottages also has planning consent to form a further rear addition which would include a further sitting room and a fourth bedroom – planning reference 07/02913/DOM.

Combined, and subject to planning, both properties could form a substantial village property sitting within a plot amounting to approximately two thirds of an acre.

The cottages are positioned within easy cycling distance of Itchenor Sailing Club, ideal for summer events such as Itchenor Fortnight and other regattas.

Moorings may be available via The Chichester Harbour Conservancy.

There is also a popular public house (and a further located nearby), church originally dating to the 12th century and village hall.

The cathedral city of Chichester lies some six miles to the north and offers a broad range of shopping, cultural and leisure facilities including the renowned Festival Theatre, galleries, museums and restaurants.

Aside from sailing, leisure facilities within the area include golf at Goodwood and Hunston, bathing from the beaches of West Wittering and East Head, horse riding and walking around the harbour and on the South Downs.

Horse racing may be enjoyed at Fontwell and Goodwood where the annual Festival of Speed and Revival meetings are also hosted.

Both houses are on the market at a guide price of £650,000.
