This 17th century cottage looks as though it is straight out of the pages of a history book - and now it could be yours for £360k.

6 Sussex Road, close to Petersfield town centre, was built in the 1600s, just as the age of Enlightenment began and intellectuals such as Francis Bacon and Isaac Newton started coming to prominence.

Now Grade II listed, the house has plenty of character and period features, and has been sympathetically restored to protect its history.

Notable points of the cottage include the 18th century wood casements in near-flush frames around the windows, with those on the ground floor under segmental brick arches, a tiled roof and a plank door.

Inside, the house retains an inglenook fireplace and many exposed beams, and uniquely cosy rooms.

The cottage is made up of a sitting room, which houses the fireplace, a kitchen, a study area, two double bedrooms, both with built-in wardrobes, a bathroom and a WC.

The bathroom and kitchen have both been recently refitted, and a set of steps at the side of the property leads to a private courtyard area.

Andy Woodcraft of Homes Estate Agents commented: “This lovely cottage has an abundance of character and charm and is conveniently located for the facilities of Petersfield.”
