Full description

This delightful, terraced home started life as the village school around 1868. No.2 Old School House has served time well over the years and was converted into three dwellings in the 1980s. The cottage has undergone a superb restoration by the current owners who have transformed it into a charming home with character features. There is well balanced accommodation arranged over two floors with some standout features including slate floors, new electrics, new heating system and new modern drainage system.

Upon entering through the Centre Arch doorway there is a welcoming spacious entry hall with a large built-in double closet plus an under stairs storage cupboard. There is also a modern fitted WC for added convenience. The large open plan sitting / dining room has access to the garden and is filled with light from the south facing wood framed double glazed window. There is also a high efficiency woodburning stove for those cold winter nights. The kitchen has also been updated and reconfigured providing a fresh modern feel with everything you need. Upstairs are two fantastic double bedrooms, both providing plenty of space with storage. The bathroom has a separate bath and shower and continues the theme with a modern finish in a home full of character. Externally the property offers a long south facing fenced garden complimented by far reaching views of the South Downs. The garden is laid to lawn flanked by maturing borders. There is a lovely stone terrace providing space for a table and chairs and a BBQ. The terrace runs across the full width of the house overlooking the garden and amazing views.

Why live in Midhurst?

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.

You’ll also find plenty to do here – when you’re not engaged in polo, fly-fishing or clay pigeon shooting on the Cowdray Estate, you could head over to the Cowdray Golf Club to enjoy some of the most scenic views in West Sussex and get involved with one of the many other clubs and societies that use it as a base. You’ll find a local camera club, the Midhurst Players, the Gardening Club and in August you could join in with the ten days of fun at the Midhurst Music, Arts and Dramatic Festival, ‘MADhurst’. There’s never a dull moment here!

As far as family life goes, we have many well-regarded schools in and around the area, all with strong Ofsted reports and excellent reputations, including Midhurst C of E Primary and Midhurst Rother College, which, between them, cater for pupils from age four to 18.
