About this property

  • 15 Stoughton, once the village's original public house, has been sympathetically restored and enhanced, creating an idyllic rural, family home.

    Upon entering through the brick and tiled porch, you are welcomed into a reception area, the oldest part of the house, dating back to 1710. The staircase takes centre stage, designed by Giles Gilbert Scott, the style is reminiscent of iconic landmarks, particularly the red telephone box at Battersea Power Station.

    The ground floor comprises a spacious living room, with wood burning stove, a beautifully maintained oak parquet flooring and stunning views to the front of the property. A clever addition is the snug/library, tucked around the corner of this welcoming space, with a door to the garden. The kitchen, with its panoramic views of the garden, AGA and open plan design on to a spacious dining area, is a sociable space. There is also a boot room and utility with side access to this property, offering the practicalities also needed in this village location, where you can kick off your walking boots. There is also a separate w/c on the ground floor.

    The first floor boasts a wealth of character in each of its six bedrooms, with feature fireplaces and breathtaking views. There are two beautifully designed and finished bathrooms, one serving the principal bedroom, approached by a stylishly crafted dressing area.

    Outside, the gardens with views towards Kingley Vale, are mature and private, enveloping the property, mostly laid to lawn, with an additional paved area for informal dining in the summer months. This property also benefits from a garage and off road parking.

    Adjacent to the property is the ‘boathouse', offering additional accommodation, with its vaulted ceiling and cleverly designed glass archway, this is a unique and welcoming space, with the opportunity for a variety of uses.

This home is perfect for families, beautifully presented with stunning countryside views that I absolutely adore.

Local information

  • Ideally situated backing onto Kingley Vale, renowned for its scenic walking tracks, and within close proximity to the village's charming amenities, including the esteemed 'Hare and Hounds' pub, this property epitomizes the quintessential village lifestyle, offering a rare opportunity to own a piece of history in an idyllic setting.
  • The neighbouring countryside offers a varied choice of footpaths and bridleways providing access to some of the prettiest countryside in the county including the nature reserve of Kingley Vale. Nearby Goodwood is internationally known for its famous racecourse but also provides a private country club with tennis courts, squash courts and 18-hole golf course. The annual Festival of Speed is held there and has become a prominent international event, as has the Revival of its historic motor circuit, celebrated with a 3-day event each year. The airfield close to the motor circuit also provides facilities for private aircraft. The cathedral city of Chichester is about 4 miles away and provides a comprehensive range of shopping amenities arranged partly within its pedestrianised centre, dominated by the Norman cathedral and its ancient city walls.
  • The nearby West Sussex coast provides many other attractions on The Solent and there are a number of well-known sailing clubs, most notably at Bosham and Itchenor, together with Chichester Marina at Birdham. The National Trust reserve of East Head and its adjacent beaches are some of the most charming areas of coastline in the south of England, with facilities for yachting, windsurfing and kitesurfing. Communications in the area are excellent with the mainline station at Chichester providing a regular service to London Victoria, Gatwick and other towns and cities along the south coast. The A3 provides good access to London and via the M25 to Heathrow, with the M27 leading to Southampton Airport and the West.
