About this property

TENURE: Freehold

A delightful Grade II listed cottage, believed to date back to the late 1500's when documents show William Shotter left "Lytell Ropes" to his grandson William. The cottage is constructed of part stone, part brick and part tile hung elevations. The cottage retains a wealth of charm and character associated with a property from this period including exposed timbers, oak floors, leaded light windows and beams in the majority of principal rooms. The front door opens into a central entrance hall with exposed timbers and tiled flooring leading in to a double aspect drawing room with brick fireplace with stone hearth and inset wood burning stove. There is a separate family/dining room, currently being used as a study. The kitchen/breakfast room is refitted with a range of units under an expanse of oak worktops, complemented further with an oil fired Aga. In later years the kitchen has been sympathetically extended to provide space for a table with a door leading to the terrace and gardens. The first floor is of equal merit having been extended in 1996 by the previous owners and now comprises four bedrooms with a family bathroom. The generous master bedroom could be divided to form an en suite. This cottage needs to be viewed internally to be fully appreciated.

Situated in a truly rural and idyllic spot and yet within walking distance of Fernhurst the property is within the South Downs National Park ideal for both walking and riding. The village of Fernhurst offers shops catering for day to day needs, whilst more comprehensive facilities can be found in Haslemere including specialist shops and stores, supermarkets and a mainline station offering a frequent service to London Waterloo in under an hour. The A3 can be reached at Hindhead. The area is well served with attractive open countryside criss-crossed by miles of foot and bridle paths. There are sporting facilities available in Haslemere at The Amarna, The Herons and The Edge. There is polo at Cowdray, yachting at Chichester, horseracing at Goodwood and live theatre at both Guildford and Chichester.

The cottage is set behind an attractive old stone wall, approached under a stone arch via a pedestrian gate which leads into the pretty front garden with climbing roses, honeysuckle and several fruit trees The garden is predominantly to the rear of the cottage, mainly laid to lawn with mature and specimen trees and herbaceous borders giving a good deal of privacy and seclusion, and features a trellis and pond with water feature. A sun terrace runs across the rear of the property enjoying the bright southerly aspect, ideal for outdoor entertaining. There is access down both sides of the cottage, with the garage side also providing a log store and covered walkway. In addition, to the rear of the garden is a large Summer house, ideal for a homeworker, benefiting from power and light.
