Tenure: Freehold

Appleton House Farm is a beautiful detached country house, set in spectacular grounds and located just north-west of Bosham near Chichester. The property boasts superb, spacious accommodation and is beautifully presented. The vast rear gardens are the real feature to this property running directly from the back of the house, facing east and extending to approx 6 acres.

Beyond its attractive façade of red brick and white render, this family home has outstanding accommodation. On the ground floor there is a
light and airy reception room to the front, with a large bay window, plus a sitting room with an open fireplace. The kitchen and breakfast room is a highly attractive space, with wooden units and worktops, a range-style cooker and built-in appliances, including a dishwasher.

The conservatory offers a stunning setting to relax and enjoy views across the considerable rear garden, while there is also a study and a practical utility room.

On the first floor there are five generously proportioned double bedrooms, including the master with its en suite bathroom. The second bedroom also enjoys an en suite shower room, while there is also a further family bathroom.

The property is situated to the west of Chichester, midway between Bosham and Hambrook, and to the north of the A259. Nearby, the railway halt at Nutbourne provides access eastwards to Chichester and to London Victoria via Gatwick Airport, along the coast and westward to Portsmouth and, via Havant,
to London Waterloo. Nearby Chidham has a primary school, church and a village hall with a busy schedule of activities. Chichester’s broad range of shops, leisure and cultural facilities including the Festival Theatre, is about 4 miles. Goodwood, with its country club, golf course, small airfield, horseracing and events for motoring enthusiasts, is about 8 miles. Sailing takes place at nearby Chichester Harbour, with bathing and windsurfing off the coast. Walks around Chidham Peninsula offer wonderful panoramic views of the harbour. Schools in the area include Chichester’s Bishop Luffa,
Portsmouth Grammar, Prebendal, Seaford
College, and Westbourne House.

The property is approached via a gravel driveway, which opens onto a large parking and turning area, with plenty of space for multiple vehicles. There is a substantial garage unit, which could house up to four vehicles, and also boasts a huge amount of storage space to the rear, and on the first floor. This could offer potential to create a self-contained unit subject to usual planning consents.

The gardens to the front are well maintained, including an area of lawn with pretty cast-iron lampposts, while to the rear, there is a long lawned garden opening on to paddock beyond. There is a welcoming patio space for outside dining/entertaining, as well as enjoying the views. There are hedgerows to the sides and a number of mature trees, plus a further outbuilding for garden storage.
