A charming four bedroom detached cottage that is believed to date back over 300 years with brick and flint elevations and a clay tiled roof. The property has a wealth of character features with original exposed beams, brickwork and a feature fireplace. The accommodation comprises an entrance hall with cloakroom. Double doors lead through to the conservatory which overlooks the attractive south-west facing garden. The sitting room has an exposed brick fireplace with a doorway leading onto the south facing terrace. The kitchen is fitted with shaker style units and links to a rear lobby, which accesses the courtyard area. The dining room has an oak floor and benefits from a triple aspect. To the first floor there are four bedrooms, two of which contain fitted wardrobes. The bedrooms share a family bathroom and separate shower room.
The property is situated in the popular village of Fishbourne and is just a short distance from Fishbourne CE Primary School, the railway station and The Fishbourne Centre which has facilities for cricket, football, croquet, tennis and bowling as well as a multi-sport court and a secure children's play area. There is a cycle path through to Chichester with its beautiful cathedral, renowned theatre and gallery. Facilities there include a range of shops and restaurants, a railway station and a hospital. From Fishbourne you can also head west to picturesque Bosham with its popular sailing club. The South Downs National Park is within easy reach, and horse racing and the Festival of Speed are held on the nearby Goodwood Estate.
The gardens are a particular feature of the property with a south facing garden and a terrace area leading onto a lawn bordered by two flint and brick walls, mature shrubs and fruit trees. A wooden bridge across the stream links to a second garden with a parking area, which has vehicular access from Godwin Way. The south-west garden is laid to lawn with two timber sheds. To the rear of the property is a pathway leading to a brick outbuilding.
Planning Permission was granted, but has now lapsed for an additional dwelling in the side garden to the west of the house. Further details can be found on the Chichester District Council planning portal Ref:07/01791/OUT. The plans grant permission for a detached bungalow with a parking area to the front and a new shared access with the cottage.
