Full description

Tenure: Freehold

An impressive Victorian house, believed to have been built in the late 19th Century, within a quarter of a mile of local shopping facilities and a mainline station providing regular service to London.

This substantial detached Victorian house of character provides extensive accommodation set in mature gardens with adjoining paddock, in all approximately 1.2 acres. Believed to have been built in the late 1800's, the accommodation is arranged over three floors, amounting to some 3,200 sq. ft. and retains much of the character of its period with high ceilings, large well proportioned rooms, decorative cornices and open fireplaces.

The accommodation comprises entrance hallway, double aspect sitting room with bay window and feature fireplace incorporating a wood burning stove, wonderfully spacious drawing room leading through to the garden room with glazed picture windows on three sides with double doors opening on to the garden, study, kitchen/dining room with tongue & groove panelling and walk-in larder with doors through to the wonderful conservatory. There is a separate utility room, a shower room and separate cloakroom completing the ground floor. To the first floor, there are four bedrooms, a family bathroom and separate cloakroom. There is a further bedroom to the second floor.

Set well back from the lane the property is approached by way of a gravelled driveway from the east, which leads both to casual parking at the front of the house and to a second driveway leading down to the paddock and stables to the west. The immediate gardens have been landscaped with sitting areas and decorative borders, creating many points of interest. Further lawns and decorative hedging lead gently downhill to the adjacent paddock, with its timber built stable building.

Despite its rural and private setting, the house is only a quarter of a mile from the extensive facilities of Barnham village centre. The village has a range of local shops, pubs, schools and churches. There is a railway station with services to London Victoria in about 1 hour 30 minutes and Gatwick airport in around 50 minutes. More comprehensive facilities are available at Arundel, some five miles to the east or the cathedral city of Chichester, some seven miles to the west.

There is a wide choice of sporting and recreational activities in the surrounding area, including horse racing at both Goodwood and Fontwell Park, polo at Cowdray Park, numerous golf courses, sailing and water sports on Chichester Harbour and at Littlehampton along with walking, riding and country pursuits in the beautiful South Downs National Park.
