Nestled in the foothills of the glorious South Downs National Park, this delightful flint and brick period cottage offers charm and character in abundance. The property is surrounded by beautiful countryside with uninterrupted views from most windows, both on the ground and first floor.
Brookside Cottage was sympathetically extended by the present owners in 2009, increasing the size of the principal reception room and creating a dressing area with fitted wardrobes and luxury wet room to the master bedroom. An enclosed entrance porch leads to a hallway area which provides access to the main reception room and traditional kitchen with painted cupboards and a propane fuelled Esse range cooker. Double doors lead from the kitchen to the breakfast room which has an exterior door, and a cloakroom at the far end. The open plan sitting room/dining room has windows to three sides and a beautiful fireplace with hand painted Delft tiles which hosts a duel fuel Aga stove. On the first floor there are two double bedrooms each feature fireplaces and en suite facilities.
Outside, the property is accessed via a five bar gate leading to a long gravel driveway providing parking for several cars. The pretty cottage garden and a sweeping pathway, neatly tended lawns and mature well stocked borders, with a patio area in front of the cottage. An insulated timber office/workshop is positioned to one side. A patio extends to the side and rear where there is a further lawn abutting an open field.

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.
