A truly charming, detached period barn conversion standing in 3.49 acres including a paddock of approximately 2.8 acres in Birdham. Believed to date from the mid 1800's, when it was, as the name suggests, a calf pen to the neighbouring farm, this attractive flint and brick property was converted into a residential dwelling in the 1980's and subsequently extended by the present owners in 2007.
The accommodation has much charm and character and includes two well-proportioned reception rooms, each with a log burning stove. The log burner in the sitting room has a back boiler for heating and hot water. The kitchen is in the centre of the cottage and there is a ground floor modern bathroom. Upstairs there are three bedrooms.
Outside, the garden is divided up by mature hedges into a formal garden with a footbridge across to an orchard and kitchen garden where there is also a children's tree house. A five bar gate opens to the paddock which is currently used as a hay meadow. At the front of the property there is a shared drive with the farm next door leading to a private gravel drive and large carport and garage. There is also a workshop, lawn mower store and log store.
The attractive coastal village of Birdham offers some local facilities including a marina, primary school, convenience store and petrol station. A full range of other facilities (including a GP surgery) can be found at East Wittering, approximately 2 1/2 miles distant. The nearby city of Chichester offers excellent high street shopping, restaurants, cafes and bars, the Festival Theatre and a mainline railway station. Goodwood is located to the north of the city and is famous for its many event days, including the Festival of Speed, Goodwood Revival and the Qatar Goodwood Festival. There are excellent sailing facilities around Chichester Harbour and windsurfing from the blue flag beaches at West Wittering.

Why live in Chichester?
We consider ourselves very lucky to be working in a city that blends so many different architectural styles, from elegant Georgian buildings to contemporary new apartments and waterside properties that overlook the harbour.In 2013, The Sunday Times listed Chichester as one of the top places to live in the UK with ‘something for everyone’ – and they weren’t wrong. Chichester is a cathedral city, a county town and home to some of the oldest churches and buildings in the country. There are many well-regarded public and state schools in the local area with further and higher education options available from Chichester College, West Dean College and the University of Chichester. Our great schools have always made Chichester very appealing for those looking for the perfect place to raise a family.
