Full description

Situated in the heart of Compton, which is one of the most popular villages within the South Downs National Park, is this attractive flint and brick period cottage.

Built in the 1860's, the property has subsequently been extended to create an additional reception room/bedroom three, with adjoining shower room/WC and useful utility room. On the ground floor there is also a kitchen, dining room and sitting room with attractive log burner. On the first floor, two bedrooms can be found with the larger of the two benefiting from a useful snug area. A bathroom/WC can also be found on the first floor. Both bedrooms, the sitting room and dining room look out over the village centre. The property is within a stones throw of the village pub, school and tea rooms.

Outside, the cottage enjoys a small walled private courtyard. The principal gardens can be found to the front/side of the property and enjoy an array of well-established and colourful shrubs. Off road parking is provided by a gravelled driveway.

Why live in Chichester?

We consider ourselves very lucky to be working in a city that blends so many different architectural styles, from elegant Georgian buildings to contemporary new apartments and waterside properties that overlook the harbour.

In 2013, The Sunday Times listed Chichester as one of the top places to live in the UK with ‘something for everyone’ – and they weren’t wrong. Chichester is a cathedral city, a county town and home to some of the oldest churches and buildings in the country. There are many well-regarded public and state schools in the local area with further and higher education options available from Chichester College, West Dean College and the University of Chichester. Our great schools have always made Chichester very appealing for those looking for the perfect place to raise a family.

Our city centre is a shopper’s paradise and there are great places to eat and drink, from elegant restaurants to cosy cafés and pubs, all set along the city’s four main streets. Chichester Cathedral on West Street dominates the skyline and, on summer afternoons, its grounds are filled with local people enjoying picnics. In the evenings, the Cathedral plays a central part in the city’s nightlife by hosting classical music events.

Chichester has a number of public parks, the Chichester Tennis and Racquets Fitness Club and Westgate Leisure Centre, where you’ll find a large swimming pool and skate park and, if sailing is your thing, Chichester Harbour is a haven for you. There really is so much to do here you’ll be spoilt for choice; spend the day on one of the many local beaches, stretch your legs on the stunning South Downs or catch a show at the Festival Theatre before it moves to a permanent home in London’s West End.
