Steeped in charm and character The Blacksmiths as the name suggests was originally the village Smithy in mid Lavant. However, in recent years the property has been lovingly restored and extended to create a very special single-storey home.
Magnificent uninterrupted countryside views towards Goodwood can be enjoyed from the sitting room which has full width bi folding doors leading to an elevated balcony. Additional features of the sitting room include the vaulted ceiling and a Godin solid fuel burner standing on a Cornish slate plinth. The living space is open plan to the well-appointed kitchen which includes a number of integrated appliances. In the hall there is a cloakroom and a utility cupboard with space and plumbing for a washing machine. There are two double bedrooms, the main bedroom having an en suite shower room and the principal bathroom has a modern white suite with a rolltop, clawfoot bath.
Outside, a five bar gate opens to a long gravel driveway which extends to the side of the property and leads down to a wide turning area and detached timber double garage with electric rollup door. The rear garden is a generous size and is mainly laid to lawn with mature hedges.
Lavant is a desirable and highly sought after village within the South Downs National Park located three miles north of the cathedral city of Chichester offering excellent high street shopping, restaurants, cafes and bars and sporting facilities. There is a mainline station to London Victoria. There are two popular public houses within walking distance, two churches, the village hall and a well regarded primary school with a good number of senior schools within easy reach. Accessible from the property is unrivalled countryside walking and cycling on cycle paths both to the sea with its superb sailing facilities on the coast and onto the South Downs. There are excellent road, rail, bus and air links, all within easy reach.

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.
