28 Charlton is a superbly presented semi-detached, Grade II listed ''Duchess'' cottage, understood to date from around 1800. Having been extended and modernised by the current owners, this offers a rare opportunity to acquire a property set in the heart of this highly desirable Downland village, just a few miles from Goodwood.
On entering the cottage, a small hallway opens through to a reception room, currently used as the dining room which, in turn, leads to the other principal ground floor rooms. The sitting room offers a cosy and comfortable space featuring a log-burner to warm those chilly winter evenings. This cosy space is complemented by the family room, situated at the other side of the cottage, with its triple aspect and French doors opening out to the attractive garden. An extension from the original cottage, this room has a feature exposed brick and flint wall to one end with an inset bookcase, as well as a vaulted ceiling. The kitchen has a range of stylish floor and wall units with an integrated eye-level double oven, ceramic hob, integrated fridge and freezer. Doors from the kitchen lead to an rear hallway, providing access to both the ground floor shower room, as well as the ground floor bedroom suite. This comprises a comfortable double bedroom with a built-in cupboard and a stylish en suite shower room. This bedroom has a bright dual aspect and can be accessed from the rear hallway without the need to come through the cottage.
To the first floor there are two well-proportioned double bedrooms, each with their own en suite facilities. The principal bedroom has a bright southerly aspect, a fitted wardrobe and a good size en suite shower room. The other bedroom also has a bright southerly aspect, with a built in cupboard and an en suite shower room.
The cottage is accessed via a gravelled driveway which runs across the front of the cottage, providing space for parking with a right of access to the neighbouring cottage. There is further off-road parking by way of a gravelled parking area to the side of the cottage. A side gate gives access to the attractive gardens with a seating area adjacent to the cottage and looking out over the gardens. The garden is mostly laid to lawn and edged with hedging, with mature shrubs and small trees creating a picturesque space which also affords views past the neighbouring village properties to the hillside beyond. There is a summer house to one corner of the garden, with a workshop (currently used as a laundry room) to another corner.
