Property Description

Full description

A fantastic opportunity for anyone who has hobbies/interests that require space (particularly cars!) this property has the potential to extend/adapt subject to necessary consents.
A charming former coach house, which offers comfortable living accommodation and boasts an excellent range of outbuildings, workshops and garaging.
The property itself offers 5/6 bedrooms, including a master bedroom with a spacious luxury bathroom en suite, and a guest bedroom also with an en suite bathroom. There is a charming lounge with a wealth of exposed beams and a fine fireplace with a wood-burning stove, a kitchen and adjacent dining/breakfast area, a study/bedroom 6 and a utility room. In addition there is a 'leisure suite' containing a sauna, shower and large hot-tub/Jacuzzi.
Externally, there is an attached double garage and greenhouse and within the grounds there is a substantial double workshop, and a fine garage block with remote controlled roller door plus parking for at least five vehicles, a store area together with an office plus a gym/therapy room to one end.
The grounds, which extend to around 1/3 acre, are delightful with an attractive and well stocked pond fed by a stream/cascading waterfall with an ornamental bridge over. The garden is well stocked with a wide and varied range of trees and shrubs together with a walled vegetable garden.
The property is approached via 14'6 wide close boarded metal frame gates, electronically operated by remote control or keypad,
providing excellent security and privacy. The drive rises to off-road parking for numerous vehicles and in turn leads to the garaging. There is automatic dusk sensor lighting to the gate piers, driveway and courtyard. Other features include 3-phase electricity and cctv.
The property is set in an elevated position just off the A27 which provides fast and easy access to Chichester and Worthing. The surrounding area is well known for its beautiful countryside, offering excellent walking and riding opportunities. Leisure activities in the area include numerous golf courses, horse racing at Fontwell and Goodwood, sailing off the south coast and the famous motoring events at Goodwood including the Festival of Speed and The Revival.
Most house-hunters like to drive by but with this property it is only possible to park opposite in the lay-by outside the trade gates to Fontwell Racecourse and look across the dual carriageway to the right. One can then see the high wall and tall entry gates to this property but the house itself is not visible from the road.
