Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Old Place Manor is an elegant Grade II Listed attached property we believe dating back to around 1608. The house was, we believe, originally converted in the 1920's and 30's. Located just a mile away from the seafront and a short distance from local shops, this charming period property exudes character throughout and has been sympathetically updated by the current owners to create beautifully presented accommodation of great character. With its elegant brick & flint facade, the property has a wealth of exposed ceiling and wall timbers and has accommodation emanating from an elegant sitting/dining room with large Inglenook fireplace with a fitted modern wood-burning stove and views over the rear gardens. There is also a good size kitchen/breakfast room with a separate utility room and a long galleried reception hall with cloakroom. The majority of the windows have also been fitted with bespoke internal double glazing.

On the first floor there are three bedrooms, a re-fitted bathroom and shower room with Laufen sanitary-ware and underfloor heating to both.

On the second floor, there are two further bedrooms which although not currently divided could be at a later date, with an adjoining dressing room.

Outside the property benefits from gated parking and a double garage with a substantial east-facing garden predominantly laid to lawn with good areas of terraces at both the back of the house and the rear of the garden.

Old Place Manor is just a short distance from a local parade of shops and the beach. At nearby Rose Green, there is also a range of shops and local amenities and a little further afield, a larger selection of superstores and shops can be found in Bognor Regis.

More comprehensive leisure and shopping facilities can be found in the beautiful cathedral city of Chichester some 7 miles to the north. Home to the internationally renowned Festival Theatre and award-winning Pallant House Gallery as well as an excellent range of restaurants, bistros and cafes. Local leisure pursuits are well catered for, many of them being sea-based including sailing and windsurfing. Horse racing is available at Fontwell Park and Goodwood. Goodwood also hosts the annual Festival of Speed and the September Revival meeting at its historic motor circuit.

There are a number of mature trees, well-stocked beds and well-maintained box hedging and topiary. At the rear of the garden, there is a garden shed of 13'11 x 7' and a timber summer house of 10'1 x 9'10 providing lovely views back towards the house.
