A QUINTISSENTIAL CHOCOLATE BOX COTTAGE IN NORTH LANCING
This STUNNINGLY BEAUTIFUL detached thatched roof cottage is truly fit for a ‘QUEEN’, as reported by local historians. Reputedly welcoming Elizabeth 1st while her horses were re-shod at a local forge, this property is thought to be dated back to the early 1400’s and oozes CHARACTER and CHARM throughout. So much so that Lilliput Lane produced a collectors model called ‘Gossip Gate’ which was sold worldwide. Our vendors have been Custodians of this EXCEPTIONAL home for nearly 40 years and have taken pride in maintaining the house along with its DELIGHTFUL manicured gardens.
Internally, the DETACHED property is complete with all its original features, with timbers having thought to have come from galleons washed up on local beaches. The ground floor comprises of a substantial DUAL ASPECT living room with INGLENOOK FIREPLACE, together with a STUDY/OFFICE and further reception room which could be utilised as a fourth bedroom. To the rear is a dining room with focal fireplace, well-appointed ‘Country’ style kitchen, utility area and bathroom/wc.
To the first floor are THREE DOUBLE BEDROOMS, a master bedroom with walk-in wardrobe together with eaves storage and shower room/wc.
Located in a conservation area within the ever popular NORTH LANCING which is situated at the foot of the SOUTH DOWNS NATIONAL PARK.
