Full description

This exceptional detached property has recently been completed by the owners and offers flexible accommodation which could include a self contained annexe. Fordwater is at the top of Fordwater Road, in between north Summersdale and south of East Lavant, ideally located for easy access to the Goodwood Estate and all it has to offer.

The property sits in a private and manageable plot, siding on to farmland and also rents an adjoining 0.75 acre piece of woodland from the Goodwood Estate. Well proportioned rooms are on offer throughout the property, which measures 3,800 sqft and has the potential to extend into the roof if required.

A large and welcoming reception hall with dining space greets you as you enter the house. This leads into the main reception room with a fantastic open plan kitchen and part vaulted living area with two sets of bi-fold doors opening out onto a large patio. The kitchen has a large AGA, a range of integrated appliances, granite work tops and a long breakfast bar. Off the kitchen area is a utility room.

At the other end of the house are four more rooms and a shower room, which could either form an annexe or further accommodation for the main house. One of the rooms has plumbing and electrics in place to easily install a kitchen and there is side access.

The first floor has a large master bedroom with an en suite shower room, walk in wardrobe and a balcony looking out over fields. In addition there are two further large bedrooms and a family bathroom.

The property is approached via a gravel drive with planning permission in place to build three garages to the front of the property.



Lavant benefits from two superb public houses, a church and access to a number of wonderful walks. 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. The cathedral city of Chichester offers excellent high street shopping, many fashionable restaurants, cafes and bars, Festival Theatre and a mainline station to London Victoria. There are excellent sailing facilities around Chichester Harbour and windsurfing from the beach 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.
