Full description

Formerly a very grand rectory, Church Farm House was split into two large properties. The house still retains some of its grandeur and period features, with elegantly proportioned rooms and large sash windows allowing light to flood in. Many of the rooms still have fireplaces on show.

The property is now in need of modernisation throughout and offers great potential for a new owner. The ground floor has a large entrance hall and a grand staircase leading to the first floor. There are two generous reception rooms, a big kitchen / breakfast room and a wood framed double glazed conservatory. In addition there is a small utility room and a cloakroom.

The first floor has a large master bedroom with an en suite bathroom, two further double bedrooms, a single bedroom / study and a family bathroom.

The garden is a particular feature of the house, benefitting from a southerly aspect and offering a good degree of privacy. The garden is mostly laid to lawn with some mature shrubs and trees. A gravel drive leads to the property with parking for two to three cars.



Tangmere offers two local convenience stores (one also being the post office), primary school and church. Three miles to the west lies the cathedral city of Chichester which offers excellent high street shopping, many fashionable restaurants, cafes and bars, the Festival Theatre and a mainline station to London Victoria. Nearby Goodwood is famous for its many event days including the world renowned Festival of Speed and Goodwood Revival for motor racing enthusiasts and a season of horse racing including the Qatar Goodwood Festival. There are superb sailing facilities around Chichester Harbour and windsurfing from the beaches at West Wittering. The area is a paradise for wildlife enthusiasts, with beautiful walks and cycle tracks over the South Downs and around the harbour.

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.

Our city centre is a shopper’s paradise and there are great places to eat and drink, from elegant restaurants to cosy cafés and pubs, all set along the city’s four main streets. Chichester Cathedral on West Street dominates the skyline and, on summer afternoons, its grounds are filled with local people enjoying picnics. In the evenings, the Cathedral plays a central part in the city’s nightlife by hosting classical music events.

Chichester has a number of public parks, the Chichester Tennis and Racquets Fitness Club and Westgate Leisure Centre, where you’ll find a large swimming pool and skate park and, if sailing is your thing, Chichester Harbour is a haven for you. There really is so much to do here you’ll be spoilt for choice; spend the day on one of the many local beaches, stretch your legs on the stunning South Downs or catch a show at the Festival Theatre before it moves to a permanent home in London’s West End.

If you’d like to buy, sell or let a property in Chichester, get in touch with your local team and discover the Henry Adams difference for yourself.
