Quaint 16th century cottage in West Sussex could be yours for £1m

A charming 16th century thatched cottage, nestled in the village of Thakeham in West Sussex, is on the market for £1 million.

Aptly named The Old Thatch, this five-bedroom property for sale is approached through a private gated driveway, giving it a lovely secluded feel.

Just as you might expect from a delightful cottage, there are plenty of wooden beams, bricked walls and fireplaces throughout.

It has a snug and cosy feel, too, thanks to its warm fabrics and calming colours. While there are some elements of the property you might want to update (such as the striped wall in the upstairs bathroom), overall, it has been designed to a high standard.

On the first floor you’ll find a large master suite (which is accessible via its own set of stairs). Here, there is a large built-in wardrobe, grand roll-top bath, additional power shower and plenty of storage space.

And if that wasn’t enough, this floor also has four further bedrooms, perfect for guests staying the night.

The gardens outside are as pretty as a picture book. Vibrant flowers, trees of all sizes, a sprawling grass area, space for cars, a convenient patio area and a pastel blue summerhouse are just some of our favourites.

Children will love the outdoor swing, while adults can relax close by. We can only imagine how lovely the space will look during the summer months.
