Norfolk Cottage
The Street, Patching

Norfolk Cottage As its name indicates, Norfolk Cottage was once part of the Duke of Norfolk's Estate; high on the South Downs extending out from the family seat spanning 1000 years at Arundel Castle. This delightful Grade II Listed detached cottage dates back to the 17th century and with elevations in mellow brick & timbers, sits beneath a thatched roof with characteristic eyebrow windows. The interior is very practical and easy to live in; and with more space than you might think. A generous sitting room and study runs from front to rear with light entering from both ends; it also has a deep inglenook fireplace. The exposed brick and Shaker panelled dining room has a New England air to it; and opens directly onto the terrace & gardens. The kitchen has an AGA; and oak floors are featured in the main reception rooms and the hall (with an oak staircase too). On the first floor, the principle bedroom has a high, vaulted ceiling with exposed timbers and an en-suite shower room. There are two other first floor bedrooms. Heating is by oil - there is no mains gas in the village. A sizeable oak-framed separate building provides a home office/den behind the barn-style garage (for one larger and one medium-size car). There is also a log store and further garden store. From the lane, a wide five-bar gate opens into a stone and brick banded private drive area with off road-parking for several cars in front of the garage. Similar sun terracing adjoins the house, with a winding pathway leading through profuse and colourfully stocked borders to gently undulating lawns beyond, Numerous trees add colour and texture, including two mature olives. On one side is a raised deck, perfect for outside dining and barbecues. At the top (east) there is a fine hard tennis court. A lovely private garden - equally suited to a family with children, or a couple seeking seclusion, with the benefit of their own tennis court. In all, probably approaching 0.5 acre.
