Renovated, immaculately presented, grade II listed farmhouse with a separate cottage and superbly flexible barn, nestled in the South Downs and only about 3 miles from Goodwood Racecourse.
The Farmhouse is set within the stunning rural landscape of the South Downs, it is a charming, characterful 5 bedroom farm house, which has undergone a comprehensive, 3 year program of restoration. A long tree lined driveway leads to the courtyard immediately in front of the house, affording a great sense of arrival. The buildings are set neatly around the central courtyard with the gardens and land wrapping around it on all sides.
Inside the house, the dining hall provides a spacious reception area with an open fire, leading through to a large sitting room of nearly 23 ft in length with double doors opening west onto a sheltered terrace. The partially vaulted kitchen/family room has a stylish contemporary kitchen including a range of integrated appliances and polished stone worksurfaces with breakfast bar. A garden lobby beyond provides a useful area for storing outdoor clothing, boots and shoes and the utility room provides an area for white goods.
The generous bedroom accommodation includes two ground floor bedroom suites each with a contemporary shower room. On the first and second floors there are three further bedrooms each with a shower or bathroom.
To the west of the house lies the delightful, period cottage, which was renovated at the same time as the house and provides completely self-contained, stylishly presented accommodation. A vaulted sitting room with exposed beams has double doors opening west onto a terrace with open views to the neighbouring paddock, belonging to the property. The impressive brick chimney breast and fireplace with wood burner create an attractive focal point for this room. The kitchen/dining room beyond has also retained its vaulted ceiling with exposed beams and is equipped with a well-appointed contemporary kitchen and integrated appliances. Three bedroom suites, all with a shower room or bathroom, enjoy views over either the gardens or courtyard approach. The car port immediately adjacent provides covered parking together with an open fronted barn style garage immediately to the left of the entrance.
The recently restored barn studio is nearly 60 ft in length with bi- folding doors opening west onto the courtyard and further double doors onto the garden. It also has an acoustic ceiling. This is an ideal space for entertaining or recreation perhaps suitable as a studio, gym, function room or potentially as a car show room.
The property is set back from the road at the end of the tree-lined drive, occupies a delightfully rural spot, surrounded by well- established gardens, a small orchard and paddock to the west.
The setting affords a high degree of privacy. Accessibility to the surrounding countryside is excellent with many miles of footpaths providing immediate access to the South Downs National Park, including the famous tree tunnel walk to Halnaker Mill.

It is rare to see a refurbished character property such as this in our area. I love the charm and the beautiful flint nature of the buildings coupled with the modernity of the interiors. It's a property that offers many possibilities for a buyer given the combination of outbuildings and the arrangement of them around the main house.James MachellProperty agent
