Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Peckhams is an outstanding Grade II* listed five bedroom country residence set in a delightful and private rural setting at the end of its own drive with far reaching views over open farmland. The gardens are mainly laid to lawn with flower borders. The gardens and grounds amount to circa 6.35 acres. They include a one bedroom lodge, heated swimming pool, a four bay open garage and numerous attractive and useful period outbuildings as well as a large agricultural barn. The land is very flexible and could be easily used for a variety of country small holding lifestyles. (with additional access along the right of way to the north of the Lodge).

Inside, Peckhams is beautifully presented and has a homely, open and light feel due mainly to the high ceilings -most unexpected in a property of this age. Period features include a complete bread oven lined with Roman tiles, five brick and stone fireplaces, wide oak floorboards and exposed beams. The kitchen is the heartbeat of the house with its impressive four oven Aga and plenty of room for dining whilst enjoying dual aspect views to the front and rear of the property. Three impressive reception rooms provide excellent living space and are complemented by a large 'Christmas tree hall'. Upstairs there are five double bedrooms (two ensuite) and a family bathroom. The master bedroom also has a dual aspect and a dressing room.

Situated in the rural West Sussex hamlet of Poling, the property sits on the fringes (3 miles) to the east of the bustling historic market town of Arundel. Arundel is well known for its famous medieval castle, seat of the Duke of Norfolk, Georgian architecture and array of antique shops. The coast is just a few miles to the south and Worthing, with its attractive Victorian promenade is 8 miles to the east. Chichester 13.5 miles to the west, offers a broader range of cultural and leisure amenities, including the ancient Cathedral, renowned Festival Theatre, Pallant House Art Gallery, museums and restaurants. Leisure pursuits within the area include several local golf courses including nearby Rustington and Angmering, sailing from the coast and the many centres around Chichester Harbour, bathing from the beaches, delightful walking and riding on the South Downs, whilst Goodwood to the west is well known for its horse-racing and also hosts the annual Festival of Speed and Revival Meetings for motoring enthusiasts.

Arundel provides direct rail communications to London via Gatwick Airport in 1hr 28 mins with Gatwick Airport being 38 miles away by car.
