Full description

A truly delightful three double bedroom detached brick and flint period cottage standing in the most wonderfully landscaped garden at the far end of a leafy lane in Maudlin. This charming house has undergone extensive yet sympathetic restoration and extension to create a very special home indeed. The property is close to the Goodwood Estate about two and a half miles from Chichester city centre. A porch opens to small hallway which is between the sitting room to one side and the kitchen to the other. The sitting room like many other rooms has exposed beams and has an open fireplace with a wood burner standing on a slate hearth. The kitchen is fitted in a range of classic shaker style units, integrated appliances, and Corian worktops. A particular feature is the central work island surmounted by a contrasting quartz worktop. Beyond the kitchen is the dining room which has a stable door to the rear garden. Finally, there is a ground floor shower room /utility room. Upstairs there are three bedrooms and a bathroom. Outside, the picturesque garden is a joy to behold with abundantly stocked flower borders, strategically placed patios and privacy provided by the adjacent farm buildings. To one side there is a wide gravel driveway leading to an open double car barn and an attached outside store. There is also a timber summer house in the rear garden.

Agents Note: The property has oil fired heating and is on private drainage



Maudlin is a delightful rural hamlet some two and a half miles north east of Chichester. A bus route into the city passes the end of the road (every 30 minutes). The March C of E Primary school, rated Good by OFSTED is half mile walk. There is an excellent retail park on the outskirts of Chichester about one mile, which includes Sainsbury's and John Lewis, and Chichester city centre offers excellent high street shopping, many fashionable restaurants, cafes and bars, the Festival Theatre and a mainline station to London Victoria. Nearby Goodwood is famous for its many event days including the world renowned Festival of Speed and Goodwood Revival for motor racing enthusiasts and a season of horse racing including the Qatar Goodwood Festival.

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.
