Full description

Tenure: Share of Freehold

An impressive wing of a handsome country house, Listed Grade II, set at the heart of this popular village just to the west of the cathedral city of Chichester, within the rich countryside of the South Downs National Park.

This imposing wing of Funtington Hall lies at the southern side of a handsome period country house. Listed Grade II, Funtington Hall is believed to date back to the early 18th century, once being the original manor house of Funtington and in later years passing into the ownership of the Dukes of Richmond. The house was requisitioned as accommodation for pilots in the Second World War, later being converted into flats and for a while became a nursing home. In the 1990's the house underwent a comprehensive programme of restoration and was converted into four impressive wings.

Each wing is entirely different. In Number 4 the interior retains much of its original character and has all the appeal of classic properties of this period with high corniced ceilings, well-proportioned rooms, large sash windows and an original fireplace. On the ground floor, three spacious reception rooms include a formal drawing room, dining room and generous kitchen/breakfast/family room which is some 28' long with dual aspects and large sash windows overlooking the gardens. These three principal rooms are divided by two sets of double doors, allowing the rooms to be opened up to make an ideal space for entertaining.

On the first floor, the accommodation includes a principal bedroom suite with shower room, three further double bedrooms and a family bathroom.

A discreet driveway shared with neighbouring village properties leads to a courtyard approach to the north of the house, where the property has two reserved car parking spaces within a barn-style car port. The well-established south east facing garden is enclosed by an attractive Listed brick & flint wall to its southern boundary. Planted with a combination of mature shrubs and roses, this makes an easily maintained recreational space.

4 Funtington Hall is ideally situated for access to the countryside, coast and cathedral city of Chichester making it of equal appeal as a full time home or weekend retreat.
