THE PROPERTY

A pretty detached Grade II Listed thatched cottage believed to be the oldest property in the village having been built in the 15th/16th Century, located in the heart of this sought after village nestled in the heart of the South Downs National Park. Retaining much of its charm and character including a wonderful inglenook fireplace and exposed timber beams, the property sits on a secluded plot of just over half an acre with the most beautiful mature gardens. The accommodation comprises entrance hall, triple aspect sitting room with two beautiful inglenook fireplaces and wood burning stove, glazed patio door to rear and stairs to first floor. There is a dining room with window to front aspect, wooden flooring and inglenook fireplace with bread oven, again with wood burning stove and doorway leading through to the kitchen which has a window to side aspect, a range of base units, partial granite worktops, sink with drainer, electric oven and hob, space and plumbing for dishwasher and archway through to a study area with window to rear aspect which also houses the oil fired boiler. This area in turn leads through to a ground floor cloak/bathroom with window to rear, rolltop bath with shower attachment, low level WC and pedestal wash hand basin. To the first floor there is a landing which provides access to a double bedroom with window to front aspect, a door leading to a Jack and Jill shower room which is fully tiled, has a window to front aspect, shower, low level WC and sink. A further door from the shower room leads through into another double bedroom again with window to front aspect and built-in wardrobe. There is an inner landing with an array of storage cupboards leading through to a further double bedroom with window to side aspect, access to loft space and glazed door to an en-suite shower room, with low level WC, sink, shower, ceramic tiled flooring. The property is approached via a five bar timber gate with a large driveway providing off road parking for several vehicles and oak framed timber car port with utility room at the rear, accessed via a timber stable door, which comprises a range of wall and base units, granite worktops with inset sink, space and plumbing for washing machine and space for fridges and freezers, tiled flooring and loft storage above. The south and west facing side and rear gardens enjoy a large patio area along with various seating areas and are mainly laid to lawn with a productive vegetable garden with raised beds, a selection of mature trees including willow, silver birch and lime. There are a number of useful sheds and a timber summer house. The stunning gardens enjoy wonderful privacy and back onto neighbouring farmland. Wepham is an idyllic hamlet on the fringes of the village of Burpham, with its century old cricket pitch and its renowned gastro pub (just half a kilometre away!). It lies approximately three miles north east of Arundel in an area of outstanding natural beauty, within the beautiful South Downs National Park. It is surrounded by some of the most beautiful countryside in West Sussex making it popular for walking, cycling, horse riding, bird watching and other outdoor country pursuits.

The nearby historic market town of Arundel is lined with antique shops, boutique shops, cafes, restaurants and an historic castle, priory and cathedral.
