Full description

Tenure: Freehold

The Old Nursery is a remarkable detached contemporary property constructed within the last year to the vendors' bespoke design and specifications. Cleverly planned to ensure that the dwelling sits well in its natural environment, the use and arrangement of natural materials, such as living walls and timber, help to contribute to the sustainable approach of the building design. The construction and materials have, where possible, been from local low energy renewable sources with high levels of insulation used to increase the thermal efficiency of the building.

The property offers extremely generous, light and flexible accommodation with noteworthy features including tall ceilings, full height expanses of triple glazing with large sliding doors leading out to the terrace, part reclaimed timber clad walls and oak flooring with underfloor heating. Of particular merit is the expansive open plan reception room with stylish bespoke kitchen and, accessed by both the sitting area and the adjoining family room, a striking two-sided gas fired concrete resin fireplace. A door from the kitchen leads into a large utility/ laundry room with plentiful storage, doors outside and to cloakroom/beach shower room and through to the entrance hall. The accommodation wing comprises a principal bedroom suite with walk-in dressing room and en-suite bathroom, three further interconnecting bedrooms and a family bathroom.

The Old Nursery is located on a country lane in the Manhood Peninsula to the south of Chichester, ideally placed midway between Itchenor and West Wittering, and close to the sailing amenities at Chichester Marina and Birdham Pool. Noted for its Blue Flag sandy beach and the National Trust's East Head, West Wittering benefits from a parish church, primary school, village shop/post office, public house and restaurant and has a thriving community with village hall, allotments, sailing club and a cricket club with croquet courts and a petanque piste. More comprehensive facilities, including local shops and supermarkets, banks, library and medical centre, are found at East Wittering, about 1.5 miles.

Chichester's broad range of shopping, cultural and leisure amenities, including the Festival Theatre, are about 6 miles to the north. Goodwood, to the ortheast, offers a horse racing calendar and annual events for motoring enthusiasts. There are excellent state and private schools in the area.

Chichester Harbour is a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) and the Harbour Conservancy is active in preserving the ambient beauty of the harbour and much of the surrounding countryside. A popular route in the area for walking and cycling is the Salterns Way coastal path which extends about 11 miles, starting at West Wittering and leading north to Fishbourne where it connects to Centurion Way, providing access to Chichester and the South Downs.

The RSPB's newest nature reserve, Medmerry, is found nearby and there are lovely walks and cycle rides emanating literally from the doorstep.

Chichester's mainline railway station provides service to London (Victoria) via Gatwick and to London (Waterloo) via Havant. The A27, 5.5 miles, provides access to the A3(M), the M25 and London. There are ferry services from Portsmouth to the Isle of Wight, the Channel Islands and to continental Europe. Southampton Airport is 32 miles.

The Old Nursery is approached from Chapel Lane down a long drive leading into an expansive gravelled parking area and to the detached garage outbuilding, which has planning permission for part to be used as an office/family room and cloakroom (Application 12/02284). There is an additional detached timber clad outbuilding, currently used as a home office and store. The gardens lie mainly to the rear of the property. Well enclosed with dense hedging, the private gardens are mainly laid to lawn with shrubs, fine mature trees and a meadow to the south and southeast of the plot. A broad terrace lies along the southern and eastern elevations of the property with gas feed for a fire pit and barbecue.

A terrace on the western side of the property,
part enclosed by low timber clad retaining walls,
provides a sheltered sitting out area, ideal for taking in the afternoon and evening sun.
