In the 16th Century, a cottage was built in the tiny rural hamlet of Fittleworth. Traditional in its style of construction for that era, this timber framed cottage using local stone and brick, was subsequently extended during the Victorian era and then again in more recent years. The end result is a stunning, beautifully preserved and restored period cottage that lies in one of the most desirable villages in this area.

The ground floor accommodation with two separate reception rooms, provides a sizeable sitting room, which boasts a vast expanse of beamed ceiling and particularly impressive inglenook fireplace, sited by Dan Cruikshank, the TV historian, as one of the finest examples for a cottage of this nature and the separate reception hall which is currently used as a study. The oak framed kitchen, a more recent addition in the last ten to twelve years, provides a contemporary addition to the rear of the house, yet sympathetically complementing the original structure of the cottage. The vaulted ceiling with a full length picture window provides stunning views over the garden to the fields beyond.

On the first floor there are two cosy bedrooms served by a bathroom. However, do keep an eye out for the original period features that fill this cottage with character.

A beautifully presented detached Grade II listed cottage in the heart of the village.

The outside elements of Ivy Cottage do not disappoint either, as the property provides driveway parking for two to three cars with an adjacent double garage or workshop with loft storage over. The main area of gardens extend to the rear of the cottage and enjoys a westerly aspect with a flagstone terrace adjoining the property. The remainder of the garden slopes away from the cottage, laid to lawn with well tended beds edged with a neatly trimmed box hedge and a mature established Bramley apple tree. A gazebo gives a characterful sheltered sitting area with a delightful view across the gardens to the rear of the cottage. In summary, a charming cottage rich in architectural detail in a lovely village setting that should be viewed to fully appreciate.

Fittleworth is a small attractive village sitting within the South Downs National Park and provides a village school, community shop and cafe, church, community hall and the renowned Swan Inn Hotel. There are landmarks of particular historic interest around the village including Hesworth Common, a delight for walkers with many footpaths to be enjoyed around the area. The towns of Petworth and Pulborough lie just a short distance away and provide a range of shops, restaurants and other facilities, with Pulborough benefiting from a mainline railway station serving London Victoria and the south coast, whilst the historic Cathedral City of Chichester is just fifteen miles away.
