A most attractive Grade II listed village house of immense charm requiring significant updating throughout.

THE PROPERTY The Cottage is an attractive Grade II listed cottage of immense charm and character requiring significant updating throughout, being offered to the market for the first time in nearly 70 years. Arranged over three floors, the property offers a wealth of period features throughout including open fireplaces, stone flooring, exposed timbers and sash windows. The Cottage offers a spacious, open plan sitting room with large open fireplace with opening to a family room, separate dining room and kitchen on the ground floor. There are three bedrooms currently on the first floor with a study / formerly a further bedroom and bathroom created from the former fourth bedroom on the first floor and two attic rooms on the second floor. The property enjoys a delightful outlook to the rear across its own garden and towards the South Downs beyond.

We understand that The Cottage was historically noted as being The Waterloo Inn in the mid 1850's but ceased being a public house in the 1870's.

LOCATION The Cottage enjoys a fine, central position within the delightful village of South Harting. South Harting is a thriving village in the heart of The South Downs National Park between Petersfield and Chichester. The village has a pub, school, shop and post office and many clubs and societies. Petersfield and its comprehensive range of facilities including Waitrose and a mainline station with train services to London Waterloo in around an hour is 4.1 miles away and is particularly blessed with an excellent range of schools including Bedales, Churcher's College. The other popular local school, Ditcham Park is just 4.2 miles from the house, and Harting Primary School in the village.

The A3 provides good regional transport links to the M25 and beyond and the larger centres of Winchester, Guildford and Chichester are all within reasonable driving distance, as are the harbours and creeks of the South Coast. There are a good number of footpaths and bridleways in the surrounding area including The South Downs Way and The Sussex Border Path.

OUTSIDE Approached via a flagstone path set behind a brick retaining wall with flower borders either side leading to the front door.

The rear gardens are a delightful feature offering a formal lawned area adjacent to the rear of the property with a central brick path and two rising steps leading to the main part of the garden which is spacious and well stocked offering various areas including vegetable gardens, a fruit cage, well stocked floral borders, fruit trees, various paths and a raised lawned area at its perimeter housing a timber store.
