An extremely pretty brick & flint cottage, Listed Grade II, surrounded by the rich countryside of the South Downs National Park with far-reaching views over neighbouring countryside towards Watergate Hangar. A picturesque brick & flint period cottage in a superb Downland setting. The interior has all the character and charm of the period with exposed oak beams and timber frame and pretty casement windows. A tiled entrance hall opens on to a useful study whilst to the south side of the house is a most attractive sitting room of over 22' in length, with impressive open fireplace retaining its original bread oven. The kitchen/breakfast room has an informal dining area and chimney breast recess with decorative tiling and bressumer beam mantel housing the two oven oil-fired Aga with adjacent Aga boiler. From here, a stable door opens on to the adjacent conservatory/dining room which is heated and used all the year round, enjoying views over the gardens to the countryside beyond. A useful cloaks/shower room located next to the kitchen provides useful washing facilities in addition to the two first floor bathrooms. On the first floor, there are four bedrooms including a principal suite with bathroom and three further bedrooms, served by a well-appointed family bathroom. A rural lane leads to the parking area and approach to the western side of the cottage where there is a detached garage with first floor workshop, equipped with lighting and power. Double doors from the conservatory open on to an attractive terrace with steps up to the lawned garden with far-reaching views over farmland to the surrounding Downland countryside. A number of attractive mature trees include beech, apple, cherry and silver birch. A second vehicle access from the lane leads to a small yard with manageable kitchen garden and greenhouse. To the southern side of the cottage, a further lawned garden has traditional herbaceous borders, stocked with traditional perennials including geraniums, anenome, roses and hollyhocks. A central pathway passing under a rose covered pergola arch creates an attractive focal point. The small village of Walderton is situated some 8 miles north west of Chichester, surrounded by the countryside of the South Downs National Park but within travelling distance of the coast, Portsmouth and Petersfield.
