Just Right


Abode2 explores how the not too big, not too small, market town living is proving just right, especially with new residents at Dundee House

Winding streets, independent shops at every turn and farmer's markets in the town squares abundant with fresh, local produce and entrepreneurial spirit – bustling market towns offer everything needed for the perfect escape from the city.

One such town is Midhurst, at the heart of the South Downs in West Sussex. With a variety of small supermarkets, butcher, baker, greengrocer, doctor's surgeries and dentists, it is a prime example of a market town, with all amenities within walking distance, yet maintaining its distinctive character.

Smaller market towns create a real sense of community and brings opportunities to get involved with as much or as little as you like. As well as sports clubs and interest groups, smaller towns often have strong charity ties, and enthusiastic volunteers welcoming help from all who wish to get involved. The demand for these stunning, light and airy one- and two-bedroom apartments has been strong with 12 sold in the six months since launching. Only four apartments now remain, from the original 16, and with starting prices of £315,000 there has never been a better time to downsize in this popular market town. Lilyford has now released a stunning two-bedroom 1,200 square foot apartment on the second floor ready for prospective buyers to view.

Downsizing doesn't need to mean smaller. The largest apartment at Dundee House, is just launching.

Midhurst has all the charm you would expect of a historic market town nestled in the South Downs National Park, but this place is anything but sleepy. Vibrant and packed full of independent shops, cafes and pubs, people of all ages are drawn to this welcoming community.

Retaining its heritage and unique style, Midhurst has a modern energy, with everything you need in day to day life including a Post Office, a range of small supermarkets, library and gym. Down every winding street is something new to discover, whether that's a luxurious day at the spa in a 5* historic hotel, or a match at the pristine bowling club.

Lilyford has sold 75% of its apartments at Dundee House, proving how more and more popular these 'small town' escape boltholes are becoming.
