Home Farmhouse, as the name suggests, was formerly the main residence for the surrounding farm. It is now a beautiful and well balanced home with stunning landscaped gardens, offering a private plot measuring approximately 0.82 acres.
A remote controlled timber gate leads to the gravelled parking to the front, and the house sides onto a field, offering distant views towards Pagham harbour. The property is beautifully presented throughout, offering well balanced accommodation. Upon entering there is a welcoming hallway with a galleried landing. The main reception room has an attractive sandstone fireplace and bi-fold doors leading the garden. In addition there is a family room, good size study and a utility room / cloakroom. The kitchen / breakfast room has a range of attractive units, an oil fired AGA and a Butler sink. Attractive eucalyptus flooring runs seamlessly throughout much of the ground floor.
The first floor has four double bedrooms and a family bathroom with a large bath and a shower cubicle. The large main bedroom has an en suite shower room.
Outside, there are various outbuildings including the double garage and a garden studio. There is a large kitchen garden and a fenced off area for storage. As well as decking leading off the sitting room, there is a patio off the kitchen, perfect for entertaining, with a further seating area looking out over the field.
Upper Norton is situated near to Medmerry, the RSPB reserve and the unspoilt Pagham Harbour nature reserve, a large expanse of beautiful coastline and marshland. These areas offer a range of wonderful walks through the nature reserves, cycle paths and bird watching opportunities. There are superb sailing facilities around Chichester Harbour and windsurfing from the beaches at West Wittering. The nearby seaside town of Selsey, two miles to the south, offers an array of shops, supermarkets and restaurants, with schools, doctors and dentist, catering for everyday needs. Upper Norton is within the catchment area for primary schools in both Sidlesham and Selsey. For the water sports enthusiast, scuba diving, fishing and windsurfing at some of the South's most popular beaches are on its doorstep. For those wanting the main city shops, an excellent regular bus service, which stops outside, takes you to the Cathedral City about 6 miles to the north and offers extensive shopping and leisure facilities including the popular Chichester Festival Theatre and The Pallant Galleries as well as a mainline station to London Victoria. The Goodwood Estate hosts many events including horse racing and motor sports.

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.
