The Old Cottage offers an exciting opportunity to purchase a charming Grade II listed period home right in the centre of South Harting, positioned at the foot of North Lane and only a short walk to The White Hart pub. The house dates back to the 17th Century with latter additions in the 18th Century and is being offered to the market with no onward chain.
Approached via a footpath that leads through the front garden, you enter the front door and find yourself in the family room, to your right is a cosy sitting room with a large kitchen/dining room at the rear. A utility room and downstairs WC complete the ground floor. On the first floor there is a generous principal bedroom with en suite bath/shower room, two further double bedrooms and a family bathroom. Outside of the property there is a large West-facing private garden that also has a detached outbuilding and could be a haven for keen gardeners.
Located within the delightful village of South Harting in the South Downs National Park.

Why live in Petersfield?
Petersfield often features on lists of the best places to live and work and was recently voted one of the top 10 most desirable market towns in England; The Guardian went so far as to describe Petersfield as ‘a commuter’s Nirvana, the urban equivalent of a foot rub and a G&T’.We have a delightful choice of properties in the area, from beautiful character cottages, some dating back 500 years, to coach house style homes and large rural retreats to modern family homes. There’s also a thriving rental market here as the convenient location, attractive setting and abundant facilities make this an excellent base for those working in the wider area or simply wanting a perfect place to raise a family.
