Full description

Rare opportunity to acquire a detached cottage significantly extended by the present owners, occupying a large garden plot measuring approximately 1/3rd acre on the much requested Chidham peninsular. The property is within easy reach of Chichester harbour.
Parts of the original house are believed to date back to the 1600's when, as the present owners believe, a ship's captain built the house using spars and beams from his ship when he retired. The property has immense character and charm and benefits from a south facing garden plot, oil fired heating and private drainage. 
The accommodation is both flexible and with skilful remodelling, subject to obtaining the usual consents, versatile to provide a rural family home both close to the harbour and within easy reach of Chichester and the South Downs.
