Daymans is a fascinating property which has been extended and improved by the current owner in a most sympathetic and considerate manner. On the market for the first time in almost 40 years, this provides a unique opportunity to acquire a fine period property in an outstanding location within the South Downs National Park, close to Petworth.

Understood to date back to the early 16th Century, the Grade II listed cottage has timeless character and appearance with beautifully presented accommodation. Amongst the wealth of features found at the property are polished brick floors with underfloor heating, wide timber floorboards, an inglenook fireplace with bread oven and modern bathrooms.

Of particular merit are the ground floor reception rooms, comprising a large dining family room with Aga and vaulted beamed ceiling, the adjoining kitchen with Aga, bespoke wood units with polished concrete work surfaces and feature stone wall, a charming dining hall with part vaulted ceiling, and cosy sitting room with fireplace, beamed ceiling and door leading out to the side garden with pigsty, now used as a log store. The balance of the ground floor
comprises a double bedroom and bathroom, with, on the first floor, a further double bedroom with vaulted ceiling and bathroom. Planning consent exists for further extension on the ground floor (05/03373/LBC & 05/03374/DOM - www.chichester.gov.uk/planning).

The striking timber clad detached studio barn offers the attribute of further accommodation, ideal for use as an artist's studio, retreat or home office. The recently constructed barn has a contemporary open plan layout with features including vaulted beamed ceilings, brick herringbone and solid oak woodblock flooring, glazed balustrading and timber bi-folding doors which open out to an expansive paved terrace
and outside kitchen/barbecue area.

Daymans has a tranquil rural location, almost at the end of a quiet country lane in the hamlet of Bedham which borders a Sussex wildlife trust wood. Fittleworth, about 2.4 miles, has a church, public house and ancient mill. There is a village post office stores, several public houses and a church at Wisborough Green, about 4 miles, with further amenities available in Petworth, about 4.3 miles. Both Chichester and Guildford are within easy reach and have more extensive shopping and leisure facilities.

The A3 provides fast access to London, the motorway network, Gatwick, Heathrow and Southampton airports, whilst the mainline station at Pulborough provides service to London Victoria via Gatwick Airport. Sporting amenities in the area include polo at Cowdray Park, racing at Goodwood and Fontwell, golf at Cowdray Park, Goodwood, Pulborough and Liphook, motor racing at the Goodwood circuit and sailing out of Chichester Harbour and other centres along the south coast. There are many footpaths and bridleways in the area for walking and riding.

Daymans is approached down a country lane through an electrically operated timber gated entrance providing access to the studio barn, beyond which is found the vegetable garden, a double timber carport and various timber outbuildings. A brick path provides access to the cottage which is well sited in the middle of its grounds. Slightly sloping, the grounds are mainly laid to lawn with a large pond fed by a pumped small stream, nearby shepherd's hut, a croquet lawn leading to a ha-ha and an orchard. The whole is well enclosed with pail fencing, in all set in about 3.5 acres.
