Full description

Lavender Cottage is a charming thatched Grade II listed attached period home, situated in the sought-after location of Henfield Common, having views across the Common to the South Downs beyond, yet being within 200 yards of the village High Street and amenities. The accommodation is arranged over two floors, having many original features including fireplaces, multi-paned casement windows, exposed wall and ceiling timbers and latched wooden doors. The property occupies a good size plot that includes delightful well stocked gardens, a timber studio, car parking and a detached garage. The property has only been on the open market twice in the last 100 years, having provided a cherished home for the current owners. The property was originally constructed, we believe, in the 17th Century or earlier and is now faced with grey headers with red brick dressings, quoins, stringcourse and part timbered elevations with some vertical tile hanging under a thatched and part clay tile roof. An internal inspection to fully appreciate this quintessential country cottage is highly recommended.

Historical Note In 1905 Miss Allen and Miss Brown started a violet nursery at Lavender Cottage on the western end of Henfield Common. Violets were the main crop, but carnations and lavender were also grown. The two ladies lived at Holmgarth (now called Providence), and Lavender Cottage alongside was used as a workroom.
