Nightingale Cottage, The Street
Nightingale Cottage, The Street

Henry Adams is pleased to offer for sale a Grade II-listed detached cottage within the Designated Boxgrove Conservation Area.

Nightingale Cottage dates back to the 16th century and is of great historical and architectural interest.

It is likely that it was originally constructed of wattle and daub as a four-bay timber framed house in the 1550s and substantially refurbished and extended during the 17th century.

Later modifications have taken place over the centuries but it is the earlier ones which are of the most architectural interest.

Nightingale Cottage, on The Street, which is believed to have been occupied by the local bootmaker in the 1880s, is constructed partly of red brick infill of the timber frame and part flint-faced under a thatched roof.

The character accommodation, which would now benefit from some updating, includes a sitting room, a dining room, a study, a kitchen and a cloakroom. Upstairs there are three bedrooms and a bathroom.

The pretty, well-stocked cottage gardens include a free-standing workshop, a garage and an area for parking.

The village of Boxgrove has a post office/store and a primary school and is well-known for its Priory Church.

Nightingale Cottage is to be sold with the benefit of full planning and Listed Building consent for a ground floor extension as well as some internal alterations.

Guide Price £450,000.
