Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A handsome Georgian house in 2.1 acres of private grounds close to Chichester Marina. Occupying a private and semi-rural location on the outskirts of Birdham village, a handsome and substantial farmhouse, believed to have Georgian origins, set in 2.1 acres of mature grounds. Over the years the house has been improved and extended and now provides well-balanced family accommodation spread over two floors. Of particular note is the very spacious farmhouse kitchen with a 4-oven oil-fired Aga and an adjacent utility room having summer cooking facilities for when the Aga is not in use. The dining room, garden room and study complement the spacious drawing room with open fireplace and garden views.

Four double bedrooms, with the master bedroom having an en-suite bathroom and a further famly bathroom complete the accommodation on the first floor.

The grounds are a particular feature of the property, stretching to around 2.1 acres, with an oak-framed 4-bay cart-barn providing covered parking and a pretty free-form double pond with waterfall and fountain, oak framed pergola with gravelled seating on the western side of the house providing an excellent entertaining space. Beyond the garden, and included in the sale, is an additional area of land with the remains of a building, which a prospective purchaser may well wish to look into achieving planning permission.

The house is ideally situated in the sought-after semi-rural village of Birdham, adjacent to countryside designated as Chichester Harbour's Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Chichester Yacht Club, Chichester Marina and Birdham Pool are all within a mile of the property, whilst Salterns Way provides cycle access both to West Wittering Beach and Chichester city centre. There is a strong local community in Birdham, with a regular bus service to Chichester and the beaches at the Witterings, a local primary school, church, post office and village store. The historic cathedral city of Chichester is within 3 miles and has comprehensive shopping facilities and a wide range of recreational activities, including Pallant House Gallery and the internationally acclaimed Festival Theatre. Goodwood is also a great attraction, hosting the annual Festival of Speed and Revival Meeting at its historic motor circuit. Goodwood also has a full horse-racing calendar including Glorious Goodwood and a private country club and golf course.
