A charming detached Grade II Listed period cottage with a number of original features located in the sought after downland village of Cocking.
The property was built in the 17th Century and boasts original features including exposed wooden beams and an inglenook fireplace.
Downstairs you enter into the dining hall with ceiling beams and inglenook fireplace which immediately shows you the charming character of the cottage. Leading on from the dining hall there is the living room with log burner and patio doors to the garden. The kitchen offers plenty of cupboard space with a Rayburn oven as well as a modern electric oven. There is also access to the garden at the end of the kitchen and space for small table and chairs at the other end. Separately there is a utility room and a useful ground floor bedroom suite with double bedroom and shower room with a generous shower cubicle.
Upstairs is the main bedroom with stunning views over the back of the garden over a pond to the South Downs beyond. There is also a second double bedroom, bathroom and dressing room/study with a built in wardrobe and shelves.
Outside the house is a private garden which is mainly laid to lawn and is bordered on one side by a babbling brook and overlooks a pond at the bottom. The patio area at the back of the Cottage is perfect for a table and chairs to enjoy the rural views.
There is a parking bay at the front of the house big enough for two cars.
The village benefits from a thriving community with a village shop, hall, tea rooms, church and garage. There is currently a project in place to turn the old village pub, which the village now owns, into a "Community Hub" to incorporate a café, pub, accommodation, visitor centre, post office and shop. The website for this project is www.bluebellhub.org.

Midhurst lies on the River Rother, just 12 miles north of Chichester, and has the remarkable claim to fame of being the home of British polo thanks to the Cowdray Park Polo Club on the local Cowdray Estate, but there’s so much more to this pretty market town. It’s centuries old, boasting more than 100 listed buildings with a charming mix of medieval, Georgian, Victorian and Edwardian architecture that sits comfortably alongside more contemporary new homes.The narrow lanes of Midhurst’s old town offer a fantastic variety of places to shop with an abundance of small independent boutiques all housed in ancient buildings. There are plenty of places to dine in and around the town centre, too, with options ranging from up-market restaurants specialising in local produce to high street favourites and charming tearooms where you can enjoy your favourite afternoon treat.
