Property: Three To View For When The Holiday's Over
Saturday 19 September 1998
In a town built on a hill, Spinnaker Cottage has the advantage of being on the level, along with the pubs, shops and restaurants. Extensively restored by the present owners, the property has a 13ft sitting room with views across the water and a large kitchen with a doorway down to the boat store under the cottage. It is for sale at pounds 250,000 through Michael Weller & Co (01548 843246).
THE CROWDS looking for a parking space in Burford, in the Cotswolds, have all gone and peace has descended on Fulbrook, the Oxfordshire village just a mile's walk across the water meadows from the town. Honeysuckle Cottage, in a quiet no-through lane, is a one-bedroom stone cottage in a group of similar properties. It has a 12ft sitting room with leaded light windows, a beamed ceiling, a working fireplace and fitted bookshelves.
The cottage also has a 16ft kitchen dining room with part-stone and part- painted boarded walls and a flagstone floor. The upstairs bedroom has an open stone fireplace and a window seat overlooking the lane. There is an enclosed courtyard garden and stone outbuilding, and across the lane is a single garage. The cottage is for sale at pounds 129,000 through Mallams (01993 822666).
WILLOWHALE COTTAGE sits in half an acre of secluded gardens a mile from the beach at Aldwick Bay and two miles west of Bognor Regis town centre. The four-bedroom thatched cottage, listed grade II, has the kind of gardens usually seen only in magazines. The studded front door is so photogenic that it's been given a mention in its own right in the details. There is a sitting room and a lounge, both with inglenook fireplaces, a separate dining room and a large fitted kitchen with quarry tiled floor. Outside there is a workshop, summer house and garage (with thatched roof). For sale through GA at pounds 257,500 (01243 826311).
