A beautifully presented attached period cottage, originally the village post office, which has been extended to provide lovely character accommodation. The house has two paddocks including a flint, centrally heated workshop which a prospective purchaser may wish to look into converting to an annexe or Airbnb accommodation. The house itself has immense character, with an inglenook fireplace with wood burning stove, limestone floors and exposed oak beams, whilst maintaining good head height in the main. The three bedrooms are all doubles, with two bathrooms. The master bedroom measures 23 ft by 12 ft 6, with plenty of room to consider an en-suite. On the ground floor, in addition to the sitting and kitchen/family room there is a utility, study (which could double as a 4th bedroom) and downstairs cloakroom. Outside the house has parking for three cars and a west facing garden with views of the south downs. There is a centrally heated and double glazed flint outbuilding at the end of the garden, and two separate parcels of land. The house occupies a lovely rural location, adjacent to Chilgrove Common, in the heart of the south downs. Across the road are footpaths leading to Kingley Vale and the South Downs Way. There is a quality local pub and restaurant in the village whilst the cathedral city of Chichester provides a wide range of pedestrianised facilities and amenitites, including the 12th century cathedral.
