Charles Wycherley Independent Estate Agents are pleased to introduce Fishgate to the market. This is a most attractive brick and flint semi-detached cottage on surprisingly, four floors, with immense character including fireplaces, exposed beams, wooden floors, original leadlight windows and a magnificent dining hall with beams and chalk block, believed to date back to medieval times. The property has three double bedrooms with additional small children`s play room from the top bedroom and a most attractive first floor bathroom with roll-top bath. The ground floor has a 14` sitting room with brick chimney breast and wood-burner and then a 15` modern fitted kitchen/breakfast room, looking to the good sized west facing garden with outbuildings, as well as an extraordinary dining /cellar room.

The property is in the heart of the hamlet of Offham, overlooking the parish church, the old post office and a short stroll to the South Downs and country walks, as well as the excellent Blacksmiths Arms. There is a service station for essential goods and a farm shop within a few hundred yards, and Cooksbridge Railway Station is within one mile, connecting to London Victoria, London Bridge and Lewes, the country town itself, which is also walkable being approximately one mile with its historic centre, three superstores, period buildings and individual shops, as well as regular mainline Railway Station.
