Tenure: Freehold

THE PROPERTY This handsome property, originally owned by the Goodwood Estate, was sold for the very first and only time in 1979, when it was sold to the current vendors. Modified and extended by the present owners, it is now a comfortable family house, providing well proportioned rooms whilst retaining the character one might expect of the period, including open fireplaces, stone flagged entrance hall and elegant staircase. An extension carried out by the present owners has created a splendid family/dining room which including the kitchen is some 25' x 22' overall. This makes an ideal area for entertaining, with an impressive vaulted bay having large double doors opening directly onto the terrace and gardens beyond.

The bedroom accommodation is arranged over 2 floors and includes a principal bedroom suite with dressing room and bathroom. The gardens face predominantly south, with the hard tennis court arranged to the west adjoining the farmland beyond. A useful range of outbuildings includes a garage, wood store and garden studio, which could be converted into a home office if required.
 

THE LOCATION The small hamlet of Strettington is situated some 3 miles to the north of Chichester surrounded by open farmland close to the foot of the South Downs and on the edge of the Goodwood Estate. It is ideally located for access to local schools nearby Goodwood Country Club, Chichester and the coast. Locally the nearby villages of both Boxgrove and Lavant provide a village shop/post office and more comprehensive amenities can be found in the cathedral city of Chichester itself. The surrounding area provides a wide range of sporting and recreational facilities, in particular nearby Goodwood is home to some of the best facilities in the country, including golf, horse racing and its' country club which includes gym tennis court and swimming pool.

In recent years Goodwood has become increasingly well known for its' annual Festival of Speed and the revival of its historic motor circuit. The Kennels at Goodwood, its' new members club, includes a restaurant serving food from its' own organic farm.

Elsewhere other recreational activities include sailing and windsurfing from Chichester Harbour and along the beaches of the south coast, while the nearby South Downs provide many footpaths and bridle paths with opportunities for mountain biking, walking and horse riding. Communications are good with the A27 providing vehicle access along the south coast to Portsmouth and Brighton. There are several choices of vehicle access to London, the closest is probably the A285 via Petworth to the A283, joining the A3 at Milford. A mainline station is located at Chichester providing a regular service to London Victoria in about 1 hour 45 minutes and to Gatwick in about 1 hour 10 minutes.
