On the first floor, a beautifully proportioned principal suite has extensive walk-in wardrobes, dressing room and two well-appointed shower rooms. In addition to this an enclosed balcony commands impressive views over the water. Three further bedrooms are served by a second bathroom and shower room.

The boat house annexe is arranged in such a way as to make use of the changing and washing facilities of the leisure wing and has its own independent entrance providing a completely self-contained area for guests or extended family members.

The surrounding gardens and grounds ensure Roanoke has a high degree of privacy in an idyllic setting with dramatic harbour views. The house is approached by way of a long driveway passing through the lightly wooded surroundings and leading to extensive casual parking facilities to the north of the house with access to two integral double garages both with power-operated doors and providing extensive loft storage. A third garage lies adjacent to the annexe which can also be used as a boat store. A short driveway from here leads directly to the private slipway with water access and a private mud mooring. There are also deep water moorings hat can be rented from Chichester Harbour Conservancy directly adjacent to the property subject to availability.

Formal gardens surround the house itself and a terrace runs the full length of the southern side of the building, making the most of the splendid water views and approached by way of doors from all the main reception rooms and the boat house annexe. The surrounding oak copse and light woodland have been planted with rhododendron and ferns providing shady walks and play areas for children. To the north of the house lies the hard tennis court with its adjacent gazebo providing a sheltered sitting area looking out over neighbouring farmland. Adjoining the entrance, the gardens have been planted with a small arboretum along with a separate small orchard and in all gardens and grounds come to some 3.7 acres.
