Full description

Nestled within the South Downs National Park in an idyllic location, this cottage is a rare find. With stunning countryside views to front and back, the house has a large south facing garden and offers great scope to put your own stamp on it. It is on the edge of the pretty village of Stoughton and close to Walderton. Both have good pubs and there are endless local walks available.

The house is offered for sale with vacant possession and is in need of some updating. It has been extended on the ground floor already. There is a sitting room with a gas fire, a large kitchen / diner with an electric AGA, a cloakroom, a study and a garden room. The first floor has three good size bedrooms and a family bathroom. New carpets have recently been laid to many of the rooms.

The house is double glazed throughout and will benefit from a brand new private drainage system installed (from February 2021). The heating has a mix of night storage heating and electric heaters.

The long rear garden has two sheds, a greenhouse, vegetable patch and some fruit trees. Parking is to the front in a layby.



Stoughton is a highly desirable village set within the South Downs National Park. The village has a local pub and access to a number of beautiful walks. The village allows easy access to Chichester and Petersfield. The cathedral city of Chichester offers excellent high street shopping, many fashionable restaurants, cafes and bars, Festival Theatre and a mainline station to London Victoria. 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. There are excellent sailing facilities around Chichester Harbour and windsurfing from the beaches at West Wittering.

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.
