A charming character cottage, situated in the desirable village of Lavant, just north of Chichester and at the foot of the South Downs. This Grade II listed terraced cottage benefits from fabulous views to the rear, over farmland, towards The Trundle and is offered to the market with no onward chain.
This flint cottage is in great condition throughout. The ground floor incudes a cosy sitting room with a brick fireplace, a dining room, which has a lovely mini Aga as a feature and leads on to a small modern kitchen, overlooking the rear garden. There is a useful utility lean-to, also providing access to the sunny rear garden.
The first floor has a double bedroom, with a feature fireplace and a room, lately used as a dressing room. There is a Jack and Jill bathroom connecting these two rooms. From the landing stairs lead to a double bonus room on the second floor, which in the past has been used as another bedroom. This room has stunning views over farmland towards The Trundle. With the relevant planning regulations, and potential repositioning of the staircase, this room could make a delightful principal bedroom with en-suite.
The stepped garden enjoys a pretty outlook and a sunny aspect, with lawn and steps leading down to a wooden store. A gate allows for rear access and leads to a parking area, where the current owners rent one car parking space from The Goodwood Estate.
The village of Lavant offers two public houses, village hall, church, primary school and the Centurion Way pedestrian/cycle path to Chichester. 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. The area is a paradise for wildlife enthusiasts, with beautiful walks and cycle tracks over the South Downs and around the harbour.

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.
