Tenure: Freehold

Enjoying a glorious location in the midst of the South Downs National Park with far-reaching views. A handsome galleted brick & flint farmhouse, Listed Grade II, surrounded by gardens of some 1.3 acres with planning and Listed building consent for extension.

This handsome galleted flint & brick farmhouse is believed to have been built in the early 19th Century and was originally two cottages forming part of what was once the Adsdean House Estate. This is a fabulous setting, surrounded by un-spoilt downland countryside and woodland, the attraction of the tranquil setting being enhanced by far-reaching views over the surrounding farmland and valley. The property is approached through the neighbouring farmyard of Adsdean Farm to a gravelled approach with plenty of parking space and a barn-style oak-framed garage and car port. The present house has three good reception rooms including a spacious sitting room of over 20' square, dining room and study. A kitchen/breakfast room looks south-east over the gardens and has access to a separate utility room.

On the first floor there are four bedrooms and two bathrooms. Planning and Listed building consent allows for the extension of the present house to provide an impressive vaulted kitchen/family room on the ground floor with bi-folding doors on to the garden and an additional bedroom suite within the present roof space.

Adsdean Farm Cottage is set well back behind a 5-bar gate opening on to a stone shingled driveway and approach with adjacent oak-framed, barn-style garage and car port. A brick pathway adjacent to the drive runs the length of the house with well-stocked borders planted with traditional cottage garden flowers. The front of the house is covered by an attractive display of climbing roses and clematis. A small area of lawn leads past a holm oak and apple tree, by way of a rose covered pergola arch, to the kitchen garden. This is planted with soft fruit, herbs and vegetables with useful storage provided by a summer house/garden shed and brick-built garden store.

To the south-east, a further sheltered terrace runs the length of the house approached by way of a door from the sitting room. From here, there are lovely views over the lawned gardens with many impressive mature trees including lime, beech, hazel and holm oaks. The garden rises gently to the south where there is a lovely wild flower meadow with an impressive display of ox-eye daisies. A garden studio has been built to the south of the garden and this has a terrace from which far-reaching views can be enjoyed over the surrounding countryside. The vaulted interior measures 20' x 12'2 with a pine floor, exposed beams and suspended spotlights. Behind the building there is a useful covered log store and water supply.

Adsdean lies just to the north west of the village of Funtington where there is a parish church, restaurant and public house with village shop and post office. The approach to the Adsdean Estate is a pleasant one. Driving north to Funtington, the visitor turns right on to a long road passing through the fields of the surrounding Adsdean Farm. Ian Nairn was particularly impressed with this part of the South Downs, writing in the Sussex edition of the Buildings of England, he says "scenery majestic and utterly unspoilt....... Portsmouth, incredibly, is only 15 miles away from these lost places: it might as well be 150". Today this area of the South Downs National Park is still notable for such un-spoilt countryside, yet with convenient access to local facilities and road and rail links to London.

The Cathedral City of Chichester provides more comprehensive shopping facilities, arranged partly within a pedestrianised centre and is only some 6 miles distance. The surrounding countryside of the South Downs National Park provides many opportunities for walking, riding and mountain biking. Chichester Harbour and the waters of The Solent provide some of the best sailing facilities within easy reach of London and Bosham is only some 4 miles away. The coastline provides many other facilities for water sports and Goodwood, some 7 miles to the north east is internationally known for its horse racing, golf course and annual meetings of the Festival of Speed and the Revival. A choice of mainline stations at Havant, Rowland's Castle and Petersfield provide regular services to London Waterloo whilst Chichester has a regular service to London Victoria.
