A charming three/four bedroom period cottage situated in the much sought after Downland village of Singleton, in the foothills of the glorious South Downs National Park.
This individual property was at one time the village shop and has subsequently been converted into a delightful classic home, steeped in the character of a bygone age. In recent years the present owner has extended the property at the rear to create a versatile room with oak flooring and bi folding doors leading out the rear garden. There is also an ensuite wet room adjacent. Moving into the original accommodation, there are two receptions room, each with wood burning stoves and exposed beams. The main sitting room has a shelved library to one end with a James Bond style secret door leading to the extension. There is a spacious triple aspect kitchen/dining room (originally the shop area), which is fitted in a range of shaker style cupboards and a central island with a granite worktop and cupboards beneath. On the first floor there are three bedrooms and a family bathroom.
Grove cottage stands in a generous garden extending to approximately 0.15 acre and has ample space to create car barn or garage, subject to any required National Park requirements. The garden has an attractive patio area and extensive lawn with well stocked borders. Access to the paring area is via a small private road next to the property.
The Downland village of Singleton offers a local shop/tea room, church and primary school. The surrounding area has a number of excellent public houses and wonderful walks. Nearby 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.

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.
