PROPERTY SUMMARY The Barn, which was converted from a farm building in the 1960s, is set well back from the road and tucked away at the end of a long gravel driveway, which is shared by five properties. This is a property with a truly homely feel. From stepping through the gate into the garden and over the threshold, it simply oozes a welcome quite different from that of a more contemporary property. It's a little peaceful and private Haven! With every room having south-facing views over the pretty and well-tended garden, each enjoys a degree of pleasure from its variety of planting and seasonal colour. The Reception Rooms are of good proportions with the Drawing Room being a particularly delightful space with an open fire, for cosiness on a winter's night, and fitted display units to one wall. All windows are hardwood double glazed and the Study has sound-proofing to the door and ceiling, which could be useful if there is a musician in the family, or even just high-spirited youngsters! In addition to the Dining Room, Kitchen and Utility Room, there is a very useful shower room on the ground floor, whilst upstairs there are four bedrooms and a bathroom. If the much sought after master ensuite and dressing room are desired, Planning Permission has already been granted for this, by way of an extension over the Study.

Located on the periphery of the well-regarded village of Rowlands Castle, with its general stores, cafe, doctors and veterinary surgeries, church, golf course and public houses, some of which are centered around the village green. For more extensive facilities, the attractive harbour village of Emsworth and the larger town of Havant, are both within a few miles, whilst the Cathedral city of Chichester is about 10 miles eastward. For commuters, the mainline railway station in the village connects to London Waterloo in about 1.5 hours.

APPROACH From Whichers Gate Road, a long gravel driveway leads down to The Barn and two other cottages at the end. There is parking for two or three cars beside the single detached garage. Beyond the garage a porch, with security lighting, leads to a hardwood door with small obscure glass panes, to the Utility Room and the Kitchen beyond. To the rear of the cottage is a pathway, allowing access around the building, and bordered by high hedging for privacy. The front entrance is accessed through a gate in a low timber fence, past a small courtyard style garden with a variety of shrubs and trellis fencing dividing it from the main garden. A pitched canopy frames the part-glazed hardwood entrance door which leads to;
