A Lovely Grade II listed cottage in a great location with lovely views of the Downs.

THE PROPERTY Old Well Cottage is a charming Grade II listed property dating we believe from the 16th Century, with many period features. It has a large modern kitchen/breakfast room with an Aga and French doors to the garden. Both the drawing room and reception hall have wood burning stoves and there is a large and light dining room. Upstairs there are four bedrooms, one of which has an ensuite shower room, together with a family shower room, and a cloakroom with shower in it. Approached from outside there is also a very useful utility/boot room. The house sits in grounds of just over 1 acre, and there are lovely views across fields to the South Downs from much of the house and the gardens.

OUTSIDE The gardens, which are mainly laid to lawn, surround the property on all sides. There is a beautifully landscaped lavender path leading to the pool area with heated swimming pool and a pool room housing filtration equipment. There are two terraces perfect for entertaining, stunning westerly views over open country and to the front of the property is a gravelled drive with a spur leading to the two bay open garage with a log store to one side. A low retaining wall with steps and flower borders leads to the house. There are also raised vegetable beds.

LOCATION West Harting is a hamlet that nestles at the foot of the Downs, in the heart of the South Downs National Park between Petersfield and Midhurst, only a mile from the larger village of South Harting which 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 4.5 miles away and is particularly blessed with an excellent range of schools including Bedales and Churchers College. The other popular local school, Ditcham Park, is just 4.5 miles from the house, and Harting Primary School is 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.

Services: Mains water and electricity, LPG gas fired boiler providing hot water and central heating via radiators and for the Aga, private drainage.
