A handsome period former farmhouse, providing extensive and beautifully appointed accommodation set in partially walled gardens and grounds of about 1 acre.
This impressive period house is believed to have been originally built in 1727 and later extended in the 19th century. Bonhams has been the subject of extensive work by the present owners and now provides a beautifully appointed family home ideally situated for access to the coast and within easy reach of good communications.
The handsome 7 bay brick and flint facade has a central entrance porch opening on to a spacious reception hall, the focal point of which is a magnificent oak staircase rising to a galleried landing above. Double doors open on to a 19' long drawing room with polished herringbone oak floor and open fireplace. Alongside there is a generous sitting room with folding casement doors on parliament hinges opening south west on to the adjacent garden room which has large picture windows and sliding doors opening on to the garden, flooding the interior with natural light from both these and the lantern light set into the ceiling above. The oak panelled dining room is full of character and dates back to the original farmhouse, as can be seen by the large Inglenook fireplace which provides an attractive focal point to this room. A nearby study provides useful space for those looking to work from home. The kitchen/breakfast room is of a generous size and has a flagstone floor, exposed oak beams and Inglenook fireplace with woodburning stove, making an ideal room for informal family occasions. The kitchen has been equipped with an extensive range of matching oak units having polished granite worksurfaces and returns. Display cabinets have integral lighting and floor level decorative lighting. A comprehensive range of appliances include a range-style cooker with an attractive panelled mantelpiece concealing a cooker hood above, fully integrated dishwasher and American-style fridge/freezer with ice maker. A servery recess has a hatch to the adjacent dining room and is equipped with further fitted cupboards, granite worksurfaces and a wine cooler. A 14' long scullery provides useful storage space for household goods and there is fitted storage for boots and shoes. The playroom has been conveniently located next to the kitchen and family areas and a flagged hallway leads to the courtyard approach outside, providing access to a utility room and ground floor bathroom, ideal for those returning from the beach or sailing activities.
The bedroom accommodation is generous including a principal suite with bathroom and adjacent dressing room or nursery. A well-proportioned guest suite has its own shower room and three further bedrooms are served by two further well-appointed bathrooms. The north landing provides access to the second floor where there is a 33' long gym or hobbies room.
From the garden room, sliding doors open south west on to the garden and a sunken terrace with steps leading up to the adjacent lawn with a sheltered south-facing sitting area. This looks across the garden to a most attractive magnolia tree and beyond to a rock-strewn border planted with architectural grasses and flowering shrubs.
The property has two access points to the east, remote controlled double gates on brick piers open on to a long gravel driveway passing through the gardens to a generous parking area and turning circle to the south of the house. Immediately to the west is a partially walled courtyard with the second driveway providing access to a large oak framed barn-style garage equipped with two power operated roller doors and a third roller door to the rear providing access to the yard. This building provides parking for up to three vehicles and is equipped with power and lighting.
The formal gardens are arranged mainly to the east and south of the house with large expanses of neatly cut lawn, separated by well-stocked borders supporting a variety of traditional perennials, neatly clipped firs and shrubs. To the front of the house a magnificent willow tree with fitted bench seating creates an attractive focal point and there is a south-facing summer house. To the south west of the driveway an Italian-style sunken garden is enclosed by low ornamental walls with symetrically arranged borders planted with box balls and architectural grasses. A central display area would be ideal for garden statuary. The gardens are well screened by many mature trees including beech, horse chestnut and oak. To the south east there is a screened mower/tractor store providing useful storage for garden tools etc.
Hoe Lane is an attractive no-through residential lane with a mixture of large residential houses, cottages and barn conversions. Local shops are available in the nearby villages of Middleton and Felpham both about a mile distant and each provide access to their beaches and foreshore. A little further afield, a Sainsburys superstore will be found on the outskirts of Bognor Regis and more comprehensive shopping facilities can be found in either the beautiful cathedral city of Chichester some 8 miles to the north or Arundel some 7 miles away.
Local leisure pursuits are well-catered for, many of them being sea based including sailing, windsurfing and kayaking from various beaches and sailing clubs along the south coast. To the north, lies the rich un-spoilt countryside of the South Downs National Park criss-crossed with many footpaths and bridle paths providing opportunities for walking and mountain biking. Nearby Goodwood also provides facilities including its internationally known racecourse, golf course, country club and airfield. It also plays host to the annual Festival of Speed and the Revival of its historic motor circuit. There is a mainline station at Bognor Regis providing a regular service to London Victoria in about 1 hour 50 minutes.
