5 bedroom detached house for sale
Appledram Lane South, Chichester, West Sussex
The Manor is an outstanding Grade II Listed house constructed in the reign of James II at the end of the Restoration period with delightful wisteria-clad elevations in mellow brickwork under a tiled roof. The property has been the subject of sympathetic refurbishment over recent years so that it now displays the comfort of modern living, allied with the style and character of its history, forming a wonderful family home. A number of exceptional features within the house include some fine oak panelling in several rooms, open fireplaces, broad, planked oak flooring and a broad staircase with an unusual octagonal newel post. The kitchen has been attractively refitted and bathrooms offer modern comfort. Throughout the house the, largely, sash windows allow light to flood through accentuating the wonderful and historic charm within.
The Manor occupies a tucked away position approached via a leafy lane roughly halfway between the harbour hamlet of Dell Quay and Chichester. Fishbourne is renowned as a Roman port and is the site of the Roman Palace historic monument. Fishbourne has a church, primary school and public houses and stands at the head of the Saltern's Way foot and cycle path which meanders south around the harbour to the beaches at West Wittering.
Leisure pursuits within the area include sailing from the villages around Chichester Harbour, most conveniently at Dell Quay, golf, tennis and horse-riding as well as the many miles of foot, bridle and cycle paths in which to enjoy the picturesque scenery. Goodwood to the north is well known for its horse-racing calendar and annual events for motoring enthusiasts, and polo may be enjoyed from Cowdry Park in Midhurst . The cathedral city of Chichester offers a broad range of shops, galleries, museums and restaurants as well as the Summer Arts festival and the renowned Festival Theatre. A railway halt at Fishbourne connects rail services along the south coast and to London Victoria (east) and London Waterloo (west).
Outside, the house stands surrounded by its beautifully landscaped gardens and is approached via a long tarmac driveway. Immense care has been taken in the design and planting of the formal gardens that frame the house so that borders of lavender and box fringe the eastern elevation, a grassy walk flanked by delightful herbaceous borders highlights the north and mature trees add stature and focal points around the sweeping lawn. A stone-flagged sun terrace and oak pergola abut the house and an excellent vegetable garden and orchard have been created. Irrigation, as well as light systems, has been installed within the garden. A hard tennis court and generous garaging completes the picture.
Please note, planning consent had been granted for the creation of a substantial oak-framed pavilion and outbuilding (Ref 08/03159/DOM) and for a conservatory (Ref 08/04783/DOM) - however, these have now lapsed.
