Cottage with an ancient history

Chantry Cottage
Chantry Cottage

A rare opportunity to acquire a detached period cottage, parts of which are believed to date back to the 15th century.

The property, which would benefit from updating and repair does have an oil-fired central heating system. Many original features remain including exposed beams and Inglenook fireplaces. A special feature of the property is the large, well maintained gardens on all sides of the property, together with a flint ruin which is believed to have been a separate dwelling that is currently used as a large garage, but may provide an opportunity to convert to additional accommodation if required (subject to necessary consents).

The property, which is on a bridleway leading to The South Downs Way, is the last property in Pyecombe Street and due to its sloping side enjoys fine views of The South Downs and open countryside. The village benefits from a village Inn, Marks & Spencer Simply Food store, petrol station and golf course. The nearby A23 provides direct access to Brighton 10 miles away and is within 20 minutes’ clear drive of Gatwick Airport. Two miles to the north is the village of Hassocks which provides a variety of facilities, including shops, banks, a building society, a sub-post office (within McColl’s Convenience Store), a modern health centre, schools and a main line railway station which provides regular services to London and the south coast (subject to network timetables).
