Tenure: Freehold

Farthings is a spacious, detached property, in a superb, mature plot backing directly onto open fields. Whilst the property offers generous and well balanced accommodation currently, the over-riding aspect to Farthings is its plot and setting and subject to the usual planning consents would create a wonderful opportunity to develop a dream home.

On the ground floor there is a large sitting room with a double aspect, and French doors opening onto the pretty gardens. It has a woodburning stove, exposed wooden floorboards and an abundance of natural light, creating a highly agreeable living space in which to relax. There is also an office with wooden parquet flooring, while the kitchen is fitted with attractive cream units and a built-in oven and hob.

There are five bedrooms spread over the ground and first floor, each well-proportioned. There is a family bathroom on the first floor, plus a shower room and cloakroom on the ground floor.

The Westlands Estate is a private development on the shores of Chichester Harbour, just inland from the coast and lying within a protected Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

nearby in Chichester Marina and Birdham Pool.

There is immediate access onto the harbour path which encircles the entire harbour and onwards east and west providing a wonderful location for keen walkers.

The village of Birdham has a variety of dayto-day
amenities, including a village church, primary school, an excellent village store and traditional cricket green.

The Roman settlement of Chichester offers a comprehensive range of shops, bars and restaurants as well as the renowned Festival Theatre and Summer Arts Festival.

services to London (Victoria) via Gatwick and to London (Waterloo) via Havant. The A27, 0.6miles, provides access to the A3(M), the M25 and London.
There are ferry services from Portsmouth to the Isle of Wight, the Channel Islands and to continental Europe. Southampton Airport is 32 miles.

The property is located on the sought-after and
highly attractive Westlands Estate, just a short
distance from the water.

driveway and parking area, offering space for
multiple vehicles. There is also a double garage.

To the rear and side of the house there are
