Property Summary


This property has elevations of clunch with brick dressings, all under a mellow clay tile roof.

The rooms are well-proportioned and exhibit many period features which have been exposed over the years.

The cottage underwent a considerable programme of refurbishment in 2015, including total internal redecoration, new doors, new kitchen fittings, some new floor coverings etc.

It has a Grade II listing and is within the South Harting conservation area.

It has a pleasant Front Garden and a very large Rear Garden which is extremely well screened by mature trees and shrubs and from which there are views of the South Downs. Even though the property is situated right in the centre of South Harting it retains a degree of solitude, particularly in the Rear Garden.

South Harting is a most attractive downland village lying immediately to the north of the South Downs. It has a large number of substantial period houses and is served by shops, a public house, school etc. The village is very popular with walkers who traverse the South Downs Way.
