This pretty, well presented, sympathetically enlarged three storey period end terrace cottage has an abundance of character features, including a practical layout that makes the very best use of space and a well established and maintained L-shaped cottage garden.
Located in the popular West Sussex village of Northchapel, 1 Lilac Cottage offers spacious and characterful accommodation, with strip pine internal woodwork, polished floors, ornate door furniture and working fireplaces. Dating from 1900, the cottage has original sash and casement windows, with double glazed, timber windows in keeping with the style of the property in the extended section.

Both towns offer a comprehensive range of shopping facilities, recreational, leisure and cultural pursuits. The village is situated in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the South Downs National Park, close to substantial areas of National Trust Land.
