A bright spacious five bedroom detached family house standing in a delightful mature garden extending to approximately half an acre, facing south at the rear.
This impressive home is approached via a sweeping gravelled in/out drive with a row of mature trees along the front boundary providing an attractive screen. There is also a secondary driveway to one side that leads to the rear garden with a gate that provides vehicular access to a large barn/workshop at the rear.
A traditional oak front door opens to a welcoming entrance hall, with doors off to all principle rooms. These include a triple aspect sitting room with an open fireplace and a large recess at the front of the house currently used as a library. Parliament doors lead through to a superb open plan kitchen/family room with an extensive range of cupboard units, an integrated Stoves double oven and gas hob. The spacious formal dining room has a dual aspect overlooking the side and rear garden. There is also a cloakroom and a dual aspect studio/utility room (which has plumbing and drainage) with an exterior door to the patio.
On the first floor there are five bedrooms and two family bathrooms (both with baths and showers). The master bedroom has built in wardrobes and a large en-suite bathroom. Four of the five bedrooms are full size double rooms and three of them are also dual aspect, the fifth is currently used as a study.
Moving on to outside, the garden wraps around the property. The driveway at the front provides extensive parking and leads to a detached double garage with light and power. The mature gardens are stocked with an abundance of shrubs and plants. A large patio extends across the rear of the property and beyond, providing a sun trap area for alfresco dining. To one side a rustic arch leads through to a kitchen garden area where there are two green houses, a cold frame and a large barn/workshop with light and power, and double doors suitable for vehicular access.
The village of Runcton is situated approximately three miles south east of Chichester. Within the village is The Walnut Tree pub and restaurant, and in the nearby village of North Mundham is a popular primary school, plus a farm shop on the Lagness/Pagham road. 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. Goodwood is located to the north and 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 excellent 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.

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.
