With its origins dating back to the Georgian era, No 1 retains the larger portion of the Grade II listed building and has had a considerable number of sympathetic improvements throughout, creating modern living in a truly characterful home.
Approached via a sweeping drive off Bell lane, the rear of the property provides a large garage for off road parking as well as ample storage. Internally the accommodation is split over three floors plus the addition of a cellar which is currently used as a hobby room. The ground floor has three reception rooms, each with a different aspect and feeling. Some of the character features include an Inglenook with cast iron fireback, exposed wooden beams and recently updated radiators throughout. The light and spacious partly vaulted kitchen with separate utility area was rebuilt and extended in 2012 and provides the perfect space to cook and eat whilst looking out over the garden. Adjacent to the kitchen is a double glazed south facing conservatory with underfloor heating beneath beautiful limestone tiles. The first floor has four double bedrooms and a family bathroom and although lapsed, there was previous planning granted to create an additional ensuite shower room in bedroom two. The stairs in bedroom one lead up to an ensuite shower room on the second floor beyond which is a loft room with potential for a number of uses. Externally the property has a good-sized garden which is surrounded by mature hedging.

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.
