A charming Grade II Listed cottage nestled in gardens extending to approximately 0.17 acre, in the heart of Tangmere village. Originally believed to date from the early eighteenth century, the property was sympathetically extended in the 1980's to create a spacious home.
Over past years, the cottage is believed to have belonged to a master carpenter who has cleverly constructed many interesting features, including a stunning staircase, decorative timber flooring and a beautifully crafted curved French Oak door to the kitchen/breakfast room. The kitchen/breakfast room has been refitted with contrasting light and dark floor and wall cupboards and granite worktops, plus integrated electric oven and an induction hob, and a central work island/breakfast bar. There are three principal reception rooms including a sitting room with a wood burning stove standing on a raised hearth in a wide inglenook fireplace, a formal dining room and study. Bedroom four with an en suite shower room is also on the ground floor. Upstairs there are three bedrooms and a modern bathroom.
Moving outside, there are two main garden areas, a small courtyard garden off the dining room and a large attractively landscaped garden having a patio, mature borders and a little boardwalk around a well established pond. A double timber garage is accessed via a wide gravel drive providing parking for two additional cars.
Tangmere offers two local convenience stores (one also being the post office), primary school and church. Three miles to the west lies the cathedral city of Chichester which offers excellent high street shopping, many fashionable restaurants, cafes and bars, the Festival Theatre and a mainline station to London Victoria. 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. There are superb 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.

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.
