**Guide Price: £895,000 to £925,000**Gardeners Cottage is a handsome detached former estate cottage occupying a desirable rural location with an abundance of charm and character. The tastefully refurbished detached cottage is set in superb gardens and in an accessible rural location offering good access to main routes and, until 28 years ago, had formed part of the larger West Grinstead Park Estate located in the heart of the Sussex Weald, approximately midway between the old market towns of Steyning to the South and Horsham to the North.

Gardeners Cottage is believed to date from the mid-19th C. with mellow brick and part tile hung elevations under a pitched clay tiled roof and to the South side of the property is the charming old brick wall forming part of the Old Estate's former walled gardens.

Internally, the rooms offer good ceiling heights with bright and airy rooms and including an open fronted entrance porch into entrance hall with doors to sitting room with bay window and fireplace, dining room / bedroom 3 to the North, double aspect kitchen/breakfast room with fitted units and Smeg Range cooker, point for dishwasher and electric cooker, door to pantry and door to rear entrance hall with bath/cloakroom off. To the first floor, there are two bedrooms with pretty period fireplaces and fitted wardrobes or cupboards and enjoying fabulous views over its own gardens, plus a large bathroom with separate bath and shower and all being principally South facing aspect and with primarily double glazed windows enjoying a lovely outlook over the cottage's large garden and and grounds which surround the house and with wide areas of level lawn with mixed herbaceous and shrub borders and an abundance of colourful spring bulbs and delightful pockets of daffodils.

To the rear of the house is a single-storey attached outhouse with brick floor which has been turned into a very useful utility room with points for washing machine and dryer and which also houses the boiler and then a separate privy/store. To the North Eastern area of woodland shaw there is also an old artesian well.

Overall the plot extends to approx. 1.20 acres and with the adjoining driveway leading round to the East to two other former estate cottages which have been substantially improved and enlarged over the last 27 years and where it is considered that Gardeners Cottage offers good potential for further enlargement, subject to the necessary consents, and with planning consent having been granted in the past (now lapsed) for a two storey extension (ref. WG/15/98).
