Tenure: Freehold

A beautifully proportioned modern country house with stunning views over the neighbouring mill pond, built in the Georgian manner and combining elegant period style with all the advantages of modern design.

This enchanting period-style waterside property has all the elegance and proportions of a genuine Georgian house with many classical features such as high corniced ceilings, three quarter height sash windows and a period-style fireplace. The generous accommodation is arranged over three floors and provides nearly 4,000 sq.ft of well-designed living space ideally suited to both entertaining and everyday family living. The marble flagged reception hall is over 17' in length and is dominated by a central impressive staircase rising to a galleried landing on three sides and a second floor above which is lit by a central lantern light, flooding the centre of the house with natural light. Four reception rooms lead off the entrance hall, two of which together with the kitchen/breakfast room have lovely views over the landscaped gardens to the neighbouring mill pond. The kitchen/breakfast room also has a travertine marble floor and is fitted with an attractive range of matching cream units with hardwood worksurfaces, integrated appliances and range-style cooker. Double doors from both here and the dining/play room open on to an attractive walled terrace with beautiful views overlooking the pond.

The generous bedroom accommodation incorporates ample storage throughout and is arranged over two floors. The principal suite lies on the southern side of the house with dressing area and beautifully appointed bathroom having Catchpole & Rye fittings, Victoria & Albert roll-top bath and spacious open-sided walk-in shower. Three other bedrooms include a Porcelanosa shower suite and two bedrooms served by a family shower room. On the second floor there is also a spacious guest suite comprising two bedrooms, en-suite bathroom and large studio or home cinema room of over 25' in length. These second floor rooms could provide a suite for teenagers or live-in help if required.

Bourne House is approached by way of a rural lane with in and out gravel driveway providing ample parking to the east of the house. A detached garage with remote controlled doors provides secure parking and an additional suite of rooms providing a completely self-contained annexe. The front garden has a selection of apple and pear trees.

The beautiful landscaped gardens have been designed to complement the Georgian style of the house with sheltered sitting areas and clipped yew or box topiary providing attractive focal points. A central terrace is the perfect place to entertain or just sit and relax with its stunning views over the gardens and neighbouring mill pond which is a haven for wildlife attracting swans, moorhens and kingfishers amongst others.

Bourne House lies in the old part of the hamlet of Aldingbourne in a tranquil secluded spot surrounded by open farmland a few miles to the south of the South Downs National Park. This location is conveniently placed for access to good local schools such as Westbourne House and Great Ballard. To the north lies the Goodwood Estate which has its own private country club, health club, full horse-racing calendar and is host to the annual Festival of Speed and September Revival meeting held at its historic motor circuit. Barnham, some three miles to the south east, has a mainline station providing regular services to London Victoria in about 1 hour 30 minutes and to Gatwick in about 1 hour. To the south, the waters of Chichester Harbour and The Solent provide some of the most popular sailing facilities within easy reach of London. Sailing clubs are located at Itchenor, Bosham and Chichester Marina. The beaches at West Wittering and East Head provide many opportunities for bathing, windsurfing and kite boarding. Communications in the area are good with the A27 providing ready vehicle access to Chichester together with other towns and cities along the south coast including Arundel, Brighton and Portsmouth. Gatwick is only 41 miles away.
