The cottage is a wonderful character home set in well maintained gardens which have been artistically designed and landscaped to compliment the property and its surroundings. The cottage is mainly of stone elevations with brick and timber to one end and feature attractive fenestration including eyebrow windows to the first floor. Great care and attention has been given to the restoration of the fabric of the building leaving plenty of scope for new owners to add their own personal touches inside.

The accommodation retains many original features such as beamed ceilings, latch lever doors and some exposed stone walls together with some aged wide floorboards to the first floor. There is a wonderful inglenook style fireplace to the dining room with new lime mortar rendered surrounds and a substantial bressumer beam over offering great potential to house a stove or range cooker. In additional to the dining room on the ground floor, there is a charming open fronted porch leading to the entrance lobby, a kitchen/scullery as well as a separate living room. To the first floor there are two double bedroom as well as a large shower room. Accessed externally, there is a useful study/studio adjoining the cottage which could be directly incorporated into the main accommodation if desired (subject to obtaining any necessary consents), There is also an adjoining outside garden WC as well as a detached outbuilding close to the cottage which we understand from the owners, has permission to be converted to a utility/laundry.

The property is accessed over a short private lane where is there access onto a gravelled parking area and further wide gated access into the gardens. The outside space is as much of a feature to the property as the characterful cottage itself with lawns and gravelled pathways meandering through the garden with clever design and planting drawing you further into the grounds. To the rear is a large gravelled patio terrace ideal for entertaining and offering ample space to potentially extend or link the rear outbuilding into the main accommodation (subject to permission/consents).

LOCATION

Neatly hidden away in the village centre, the cottage is easily accessible to the village amenities including a public house, newsagent/coffee shop, store/post office, doctors surgery with dispensary, local community library, hairdressers, primary school and two churches. Also, the local beach in Grange chine is approximately half a mile away and the beaches of Brook and Compton a short 7 minute drive. Local footpaths and bridleways give plenty of access to miles of downland and coastal walks.

ENTRANCE LOBBY

A welcoming space leading to the main two receptions rooms.

DINING ROOM

A wonderful room with an impressive inglenook style fireplace and a mixture of wall finishes from exposed stonework, lime mortar rending and painted brickwork creating a lovely feel. The fireplace lends itself to house an AGA style range cooker and the room could potentially become the main kitchen area complimented by the adjoining kitchen/scullery if desired.

KITCHEN/SCULLERY

STUDY/STUDIO

An extremely useful space which directly adjoins the cottage at one end and offers fabulous potential to be incorporated into the accommodation (subject to consent).

OUTSIDE

To the front of the property’s grounds is a parking area with folding gates providing privacy and good access into the gardens and potential to create for further parking if needed (subject to any approval required). There is a sizeable expanse of lawn bounded by a pathway meandering through to the front entrance porch. There are a number of well planted shrubs beds and borders providing a variety of greenery and colour. A number of artistic sculptures adorn the grounds including a wonderful rose arbour which can remain by arrangement. The gravel pathways lead around both side of the cottage to a equally generous rear garden which features a large patio terrace and thoughtfully stocked and designed flower/shrub beds, together with a lawned area and a gently sloping pathway following the natural contours of the land. In addition, there is a garden WC adjoining the cottage and a detached garden store, which we understand to have permission to convert to into a utility/laundry space.
