Favourable home in a fabulous setting

“I wish we’d done it five years ago!” says Norman Clarke, who with his wife June, is relocating to Walberton from Uxbridge after 33 years. Having searched far and wide to find the ideal combination of location, property and community, they spotted an advert for Holly Tree Grove, a select development of just seven new houses of mixed designs in the village of Walberton, just outside Arundel. 

“We loved the position, away from main roads with no passing traffic, and although it’s tucked away it’s easy for visitors to find,” says Norman.  “I instantly liked it here - we’re situated between a pub and a cricket pitch which is an Englishman’s dream!”   

It wasn’t only the setting which impressed the Clarkes.  The way the living room is bathed in light and the brightness throughout was an instant winner, as was the complete specification including flooring and kitchen appliances, and the practical layout works well for the couple. “The new kitchen and bathrooms are impressive, as is the generously sized garage which has space at the end for storage as well as for the car,” explains Norman.


June adds: “We wanted to slightly downsize so I was a bit worried about storage but there is enough here. We’ve ordered some new furniture and curtains for the cottage so it’s a bit like being on holiday at the moment while we are adding our own little touches. We’re really looking forward to settling in.” 

Already the Clarkes have found the community very welcoming and as a keen golfer, June will be teeing off at nearby Avisford Golf Club.   

“We’ve encountered a friendly welcome universally, from Andrew Davey, the site manager who has been extremely helpful, and Ruth from Henry Adams, to the kind people in St Mary Gate Inn in Arundel where we stayed while house hunting in the area, not forgetting of course, our new neighbours.” 

Henry Adams is marketing Holly Tree Grove by Hanbury Properties, an award winning Chichester based development company specialising in high-end design and construction.  

Prices currently range from £585,000 to £630,000 for a substantial four bedroom detached house at Holly Tree Grove.
