About the property

Iris Cottage is a charming and historic Grade II listed property set in the heart of this desirable Downland village. Believed to originally date from about 1550, the cottage still displays a wealth of period features, including an impressive inglenook fireplace, exposed beams and a listed medieval window frame set in the rear wall. The current owners have restored and updated the property, retaining the delightful character of this little gem.

On entering the cottage, an entrance porch leads through to the openplan ground floor space. This space incorporates the living room, the dining space and the kitchen to the far end. A particular feature of this room is the inglenook fireplace, still with its original bread oven (not in use), ideal for cosy winter evenings in front of a roaring fire. This space also features attractive quarry tile flooring and exposed beams with a bright southerly aspect, overlooking the cottage garden.

There are two staircases in the cottage, one leading to the principal bedroom, the second bedroom and the bathroom. The other leads to a study area which open to the second bedroom but separated by exposed beams and timbers, some of which are the original medieval roof timbers, making for a particularly unusual and attractive feature. The bathroom features a cast iron roll-top bath with a shower over, with the principal bedroom offering built-in wardrobe space.

Iris Cottage has two garden spaces. The first is adjacent to the cottage and is mostly laid to lawn and edged with a hedgerow, with a gravelled area situated alongside the front elevation of the cottage. The second ''secret'' garden space is accessed across the driveway to the neighbouring cottage (pedestrian right of way only) and this area offers
a surprisingly large and open space, edged by an attractive flint and brick wall along the southern boundary. Edged with flower boarders, this area has a number of fruit trees, a herb garden and a gravelled area to the far end with a greenhouse.
