A charming Grade II listed village house set privately in the very heart of Lodsworth. The cottage is believed to date from 1620 and is understood to have originally been arranged as 2 cottages. There are attractive external elevations including stone with, what is thought to be, some Elizabethan brickwork. The spacious accommodation has good ceiling heights and a wealth of period features including exposed timbers, an inglenook fireplace and some attractive wood flooring. On the ground floor the entrance hall leads to the double aspect drawing room with inglenook fireplace incorporating a wood burning stove, a dining room, a kitchen/breakfast room with large larder and a cloakroom. On the first floor there is a spacious landing leading to the master bedroom with ensuite bathroom, two further double bedrooms and a family bathroom. Outside, the property is approached through double wooden gates opening into a large gravel entrance drive which leads to the double garage with storage above. The extensive gardens are a delightful feature of this property providing a private setting for the house and backing onto adjoining farmland. The garden is divided into several areas, including large areas of lawn bordered by and interspersed with a variety of mature trees and shrubs. There is also an orchard, a large vegetable garden and adjacent to the pretty rockery garden is a cedar and stone greenhouse and a large stone garden store, which could be converted for other uses, subject to all the necessary consents. The large log store is adjacent to the entrance. In all the property extends to about 0.75 of an acre.
The property is centrally located within the Conservation Area of the very popular village of Lodsworth, close to the Hollist Arms public house and village shop, specialising in the sale of local produce. There is a great sense of community within the village culminating in the Lodsworth Village Fete held in May each year. E H Shepard, illustrator of Winnie the Pooh and Wind in the Willows, lived near the small Anglican Church, St Peters. Lodsworth is about halfway between Midhurst and Petworth, both about 5 miles away with their comprehensive amenities, excellent schools and shops. Haslemere (about 8 miles) has further shopping facilities and a mainline station to Waterloo. Pulborough (about 10 miles) also has a mainline station with trains into Victoria and London Bridge. The larger towns/cities of Horsham, Guildford and Chichester are all within fairly easy reach. The area has much to offer with sporting facilities including horse racing at Goodwood and Fontwell, polo at Cowdray Park, golf at Cowdray Park, Goodwood and sailing out of Chichester Harbour.
