Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A most attractive period thatched cottage of great character in a large garden within 2 miles of Itchenor Sailing Club and 2.3 miles of the sandy beaches at East Head.

A most delightful early 17th century cottage, having brick & flint elevations under a thatched roof of combed wheat reeds which was re-ridged in 2015. The cottage was skillfully extended about thirty years ago, forming a new wing to the property. The interior has all the character you would expect of a cottage of this period with exposed beams and open fireplaces and the rooms are well-proportioned with comfortable ceiling heights. A spacious sitting room of over 16' square has an attractive open fireplace with Jetmaster grate. Double doors open on to the adjacent conservatory with direct access to the terrace and garden. A farmhouse-style kitchen/breakfast room has an extensive range of mellow oak matching cupboards whilst the focal point of the room is a handsome exposed brick chimney breast with concealed lighting, housing a 4-oven electric Aga. The Aga is easily programmable but for warmer summer days when the Aga may be turned down, there is a ceramic electric hob. Beyond the kitchen lies the dining room with a feature fireplace and the original front door.

There are three bedrooms on the ground floor, including a principal suite with shower room and a well-appointed family bathroom complete with original roll top bath on ball & claw feet. Tongue & groove panelling in the hallway conceals access to a staircase rising to the first floor. A complete suite of rooms includes bedroom, upstairs sitting room or playroom and shower room. This highly adaptable accommodation could be used as a guest or principal suite or bedroom accommodation for older children.

The approach to Rose Cottage provides good casual parking and leads to a useful double garage with two sets of double doors, fluorescent lighting and power. Doors from the conservatory, utility room, and principal bedroom provide access to the gardens.

A stone-strewn and paved terrace provides a sheltered sitting area enclosed by a pretty brick & flint retaining wall with barbecue for summer entertaining. Well-stocked shrubberies support a colourful variety of spring bulbs, roses and flowering shrubs. A pergola arch leads up to the lawned garden which is of a good size and planted with further shrubs and spring bulbs. At the far end of the garden a second terrace is positioned to catch the evening sun and there are a number of well-established fruit trees along with a garden shed.

Rose Cottage is located on the northern side of West Wittering close to Shipton Green, at the edge of the Itchenor AONB. A wide range of local shops, restaurants and amenities can be found approximately 3 miles to the south in the village of East Wittering and there is a nearby post office/convenience store in the neighbouring village of Birdham. The nearby village of Itchenor has a thriving sailing community, sailing club and access from the Hard to the main channel of Chichester Harbour. Both the Harbour Way Country Club and the Lamb Inn are within convenient distance of the property. Birdham Pool and Chichester Marina are approximately 2 miles distant as is Chichester Yacht Club. The blue flag beaches of West Wittering and the National Trust Reserve at East Head attract many visitors each year and the beaches of nearby East Wittering are also popular with windsurfers, kite surfers and land-boarders.

The historic city of Chichester can be found some 8 miles to the north and has comprehensive shopping facilities located within a pedestrianised centre. A wide range of recreational activities include the award-winning Pallant House Gallery and the internationally known Festival Theatre. Goodwood is also a great attraction, hosting the Festival of Speed and the September Revival meeting at its historic motor circuit. Goodwood also has full horse-racing calendar including Glorious Goodwood and a private country club and golf course.
