Randall Cottage has an interesting history dating back to 1720, perhaps originally a pair of farm cottages, but also in the past, a small school with one of the front doors being for the boys and one for the girls. The current owners have lovingly restored the character features and added the orangery style extension, which houses the country style kitchen with Rangemaster cooker, butler sink and large doors opening onto the patio area. The original two-storey bothy in the garden has also been restored and now offers one bedroom annexe accommodation, ideal for Airbnb.
The impressive entrance hall with flagstone flooring has the original staircase leading to the first floor and a second staircase leading down to the rear of the property, perhaps historically the Headmasters staircase. There are two generous reception rooms with fireplaces, a study, the kitchen, a laundry room and a luxury ground floor bathroom.
On the first floor, there are four bedrooms, two with fitted wardrobes and one with a dressing area. The fourth bedroom could be a first floor bathroom.
The wrap-around gardens are a real feature with a central lawn, flower beds surrounded by box hedging, a fully insulated summerhouse and workshop and the two-storey bothy, all retained by reclaimed brick paths.

Why live in Bognor Regis & Aldwick?
The town of Bognor earned its seal of royal approval when King George V came here to convalesce in the 1920s. Fast forward and Bognor is now favoured as a commercial hub, with many large retailers moving to the area to take advantage of the wealth of commercial property available. There are also many new residential developments on the edge of the old town that blend well with the period properties and apartments on the seafront.Bognor Regis is one of the sunniest places in the UK and our award-winning beaches are a great place to go to soak up the rays. The huge expanses of sand are bordered by a long esplanade that stretches for nearly three miles and provides the launch pad for the annual International Bognor Birdman competition.
