Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A Grade Listed period vicarage, occupying a most glorious and idyllic setting on the banks of Pagham Harbour Nature Reserve, with the most amazing water views. Painstakingly and skilfully renovated over the last 3 years, combining period and modern contemporary features, the house is now an ideal full-time family house or an excellent second home.

The room layout is extremely flexible with a long drawing room on the ground floor with working fireplaces at either end, a bespoke hand-built kitchen and breakfast room, whilst the sitting room is elevated and opens onto a large balcony with stunning harbour views. There are four good bedrooms, an en suite shower and family bathroom and a range of outbuildings, including a newly built double garage.

Church Lane is an attractive no-through rural lane on the edge of this well known West Sussex coastal village. A number of local shops are available together with a separate range of shops at the Kings Beach shopping parade. More comprehensive facilities are available at the cathedral city of Chichester, with a mainline station providing regular services to London Victoria and other south coast resorts. Apart from windsurfing and bathing from the nearby beaches, there are many other recreational activities including sailing on Chichester Harbour and the adjacent waters of the Solent, with a number of well known sailing clubs based at Felpham, Birdham Marina, Itchenor and Bosham. The surrounding area provides a wide range of sporting recreational facilities with golf courses at Selsey and at nearby Hunston. Goodwood, some 8 miles to the north, is home to some of the best facilities in the country including its internationally known Racecourse and its Country Club. In recent years Goodwood has become increasingly well known for its annual Festival of Speed and the Revival of its historic motor circuit. The rich countryside of the South Downs, recently designated a National Park, provides exceptional opportunities for walking, horseriding and mountain biking. The sandy beaches of East Head and West Wittering are popular with bathers and windsurfers and have recently become a centre for land boarding and kite surfing.
