Believed to date back to the 1800s and starting life as a Brick Makers Cottage, 308 Henley Common or the Old Post Office as it is more affectionately known has served time well over the years. The cottage has just undergone a superb restoration by its current owners who have transformed it into luxurious family home. The tile hung cottage now provides well balanced accommodation arranged over two floors with standout features including a new pressurised heating and plumbing throughout, new cast iron thermostatic radiators, new hard wood acoustic double glazing, an ensuite bathroom and restored parquet flooring throughout the downstairs. The ground floor offers two reception rooms with the sitting room featuring a wood burning stove. A new wood fitted country cottage kitchen, the star of which is its brand-new limited-edition oil fired Rayburn. A recent extension provides ample space for a utility/boot room with a stable back door and utility sink. The owners have also installed a downstairs cloakroom permitted by reconfiguring the new central Oak stairwell. Upstairs are two large bedrooms with the master having its own ensuite including raincloud shower and heated towel rail. Bedroom two has a feature fireplace and is serviced by the family bathroom which has a Victorian style roll top free standing bath and walk in shower. Subject to the necessary planning consents there is also the option to extend up into the large loft space. Outside the property offers plenty of space with the majority of it laid to lawn. There is a sandstone paved area for a table and chairs to the rear of the property and a gravelled drive for off road parking to the side. Part of the active planning SDNP/18/00716/HOUS includes the opportunity for an Oak framed double garage with room above. At the time of publishing, the foundations are in and the timber frame is up to roof height. A viewing is strongly recommended to appreciate the character and charm this beautiful cottage has to offer.
A charming semi-detached cottage which has been thoughtfully updated and modernised whilst keeping its character features.

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.
