Hillside is a charming Grade II listed West Sussex cottage in the pretty hamlet of Clayton in the South Downs National Park. Providing accommodation over two floors, the house is now in need of some updating.

Period features include a large west-facing bay window and half-wood panelling throughout the reception rooms on the ground floor. The dining room has an open fireplace and there are three double bedrooms upstairs.

Outside, to one side of the cottage is an attractive outbuilding which has been partially converted and provides a studio with a staircase to an attic room above. This annexe would be suitable for conversion.
