Full description

2 Rose Cottages is a well-proportioned, charming Victorian cottage, built in 1890 and positioned in the perfect place on the edge of town, overlooking South Pond and providing easy access to the historic town centre, everyday essentials and miles of surrounding countryside.

This cosy cottage has been thoughtfully transformed by the current owner to create a modern home whilst retaining some of its original character features which include exposed wooden floorboards in the sitting room, and feature fireplaces, one of which has a log burning stove.

Steps with decorative wrought iron railings advance up to the open porch with access through the front door leading into a bright and airy sitting room benefitting from fitted storage around a central mantelpiece. The kitchen/dining room is positioned to the rear of the property with a separate utility room which has incorporated a shower room and ground floor WC. This space creates a fantastic family hub and is finished off to a high standard with bespoke units, wooden worktops, butler sink, feature fireplace and laminate oak flooring throughout. There is also access through a french door to a secluded paved terrace and ‘country cottage style garden', mixed with a variety of flowers and shrubs bursting with colour it provides a lovely oasis to relax in with a rear gate giving access to the South Pond and the scenic setting beyond. Upstairs are two good sized, spacious double bedrooms, both complimented with their own ensuites and built-in wardrobes.

There is also potential to convert the loft space (subject to planning consent being given) to create additional accommodation if required.

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.
