Situated in a highly sought-after position on the outskirts of the Goodwood Estate and only 3 miles from Chichester. A beautifully presented brick & flint cottage, Listed Grade II with a detached self-contained annexe providing further ancillary accommodation or home office, the property now benefits from listed building and planning consent for the construction of an Orangery as well as the conversion of the existing car port to a garage (Application Number WH/19/01339/DOM and WH/19/01340/LBC). The property is extremely well-presented throughout and provides accommodation of great character. The ground floor benefits from a well-appointed kitchen/breakfast room which opens on to an adjacent dining room providing an excellent space for entertaining. The kitchen is also open to a family area which in turn leads into a sitting room with handsome open fireplace fitted with wood-burning stove and stone surround. Beneath the sitting room there is also a cellar area. On the first floor, the vaulted master bedroom has an excellent range of built in and walk-in wardrobes with a beautifully appointed en-suite bathroom again with vaulted ceiling. Both the bathroom and separate shower room have polished wooden floors and underfloor heating. The annexe is equally as impressive.

The gardens are a particular feature and have been beautifully landscaped within the walls and provide glorious views across open farmland to the north towards Goodwood House and Goodwood Racecourse up on the South Downs. Within the garden there is a beautifully handcrafted detached garden pavilion ideal for alfresco entertaining or again could be used as a home office.
