Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A skilful conversion of former farm buildings creating an imaginative & unique attached family home in the un-spoilt surroundings of the South Downs National Park, with stunning views over neighbouring countryside & woodland.

Parlour Cottage is ideally situated in this pretty West Sussex village surrounded by the rich countryside of the South Downs National Park, within convenient travelling distance of both Chichester and Arundel, a good range of local schools and the sailing facilities of the south coast. The property has undergone a significant refurbishment which has created a modern and stylish family home whilst at the same time enhancing features of the building's original character. There is a well-proportioned sitting room of some 26' in length whilst the heart of the house is a fabulous kitchen/dining/family room of some 37'. Here, an impressive feature has been created using full height glazed green oak frames with concertina doors opening south onto the terrace and gardens. These full height windows really bring the full appreciation of the surrounding countryside and gardens into the living area of the house and have panoramic views over the neighbouring farmland and woods. The kitchen, fitted and made by a local joinery company, has an excellent range of handmade painted units and contrasting oak drawer sets with decorative mouldings. A range of fully integrated Neff appliances include dishwasher, fan assisted oven/grill with steam oven above, and induction hob. Four bedrooms include both principal and guest suites. The principal bedroom also has full height glazed green oak frames, making the most of the countryside views. The guest suite is situated on a separate landing with its own staircase, making it ideal for guests, older children or extended family members if required.

A short area of shared driveway with the neighbouring stable conversion leads to a generous courtyard with ample parking. From here, a gateway leads to further parking behind the property which also leads to the garden studio annexe. Built in an attractive green oak frame, this has a spacious studio room of some 24' in length with exposed oak beams, oak floor and two sets of glazed double doors opening onto the gardens. This makes an ideal space where there is also a cloakroom with space for a shower if a self-contained annexe was required, subject to the necessary consents. The gardens, with their far reaching views over neighbouring countryside, are a particular asset. A wide stone terrace runs the width of the building, approached by way of doors from the sitting room, family room and principal bedroom. Borders and beds have been stocked with an attractive variety of spring bulbs, traditional perennials and young trees, designed to provide colour and interest all the year round. Laid principally to lawn, the garden slopes gently to the east with a further sitting area looking out over the neighbouring countryside. There is also a partially walled orchard planted with fruit trees including pear, plum and apple, ideal for chickens or providing an area for pets.
