Property description

Reputedly dating back to as early as 1620 Jessamine Cottage is one of the original 17th Century Sussex flint cottages, located in the heart of the Village and is now offered for sale with the benefit of no onward chain.

The property was enlarged and renovated in 1966 adding a substantial two storey extension to the west elevation, which affords a striking and significant presence in the village today.

The accommodation is unusually generous and versatile for such a period property. On the ground floor there is a sizeable sitting room, a separate dining room, kitchen/breakfast room, a study and shower room. On the first there are three good size bedrooms and two bathrooms. One bathroom is easily large enough to convert into a bedroom if four were required.

Externally there is a double garage and a delightful cottage style south facing garden, enclosed by original flint garden wall. The property retains a great deal of character, with further scope to elaborate on the improvements already made. The property does benefit from gas fired central heating, a fitted kitchen and contemporary ground floor shower room.

Rustington is a popular and engaging place to live, offering a thriving village atmosphere and enjoying extensive amenities with a wide range of both specialist and national retailers including Waitrose supermarket. The village benefits from a number of restaurants and bars, with The Lamb public house being situated close by.
A regular coastal bus service stops close by, and Angmering mainline station with a regular service to London Victoria is within approx. 1.5 miles. Rustington is located at the midpoint of the West Sussex coast and between the county town of Chichester (14 miles) and Brighton (21 miles).
