“April Cottage” is a well-presented and charming, three-bedroom, GRADE II LISTED character cottage in the highly regarded village of Northchapel. The village, in the heart of the West Sussex countryside, an area of outstanding natural beauty and included within the area designated as the South Downs National Park. This charming cottage has a superb blend of both living and bedroom space. The cottage has many original features alongside contemporary design touches.
On the ground floor the cottage provides a generous formal reception room with a striking inglenook and a wealth of exposed beams creating a wonderful area for entertaining. A recently upgraded kitchen/breakfast room rests at the rear of the cottage overlooking the well-screened garden and leads into an inner rear lobby providing access to a cloakroom and an external utility cupboard, currently housing the washing machine. Rising to the first floor there are two double bedrooms both overlooking the front aspect, with a further single bedroom enjoying views across the formal gardens. The first floor is also home to a luxurious family bathroom, complete with a three-piece suite and feature a free-standing stone bath.
Around the cottage can be seen exposed timbers and beams on ceilings and walls showing the true period origins of this charming cottage.
The landscaped gardens are a delight and provide a superb setting with a generous seating area to enjoy the garden and sunshine all year round. With wonderful well-stocked beds and borders, there is also a selection of mature trees and a large area of raised terrace, the ideal spot for ‘al-fresco dining & barbecues and the large expanse of level lawn is perfect for young families. Additionally, a spacious detached wooden cabin located towards the rear of the boundary makes the perfect home office/gym, or, in our opinion, could be converted into further living accommodation, for a separate annexe. Driveway parking can be found to the front and rear of the cottage. Please note, the adjoining cottage has a right of access over the driveway.
We highly recommend an internal viewing to fully appreciate all that this cottage has to offer.
