Full description

Originating from the 18th Century, Guys Farm is a gracefully extended and renovated Georgian residence with quintessential British charm, nestled within a serene rural backdrop located between West Wittering’s blue-flag sandy beaches and the historical cathedral city of Chichester.

Coast & Country by Henry Adams are proud to represent the seller of this beautiful period home spanning over 4,400 sqft of accommodation, inclusive of outbuildings. The main house has an attractive painted-brick façade and boasts spacious living space arranged over three floors. Upon entering you are greeting with a distinguished hallway leading to a triple-aspect drawing room adorned with a cosy fireplace, bay window, and a quaint south-facing window seat. Adjacent, a delightful dining room featuring an inglenook fireplace and a versatile family/playroom provide ample space for family living. The appealing south-facing kitchen seamlessly connects to a picturesque al fresco dining area, further extending into a cosy family sitting room. Completing the ground floor are a utility room and two cloakrooms. You can climb to the first floor via two distinct staircases where you will find a flexible layout comprising; a west-facing master bedroom with scenic views, four/five additional bedrooms (one en suite), and two family bathrooms. From the primary landing, a staircase ascends to a spacious loft room/study, accompanied by an adjacent loft store, with historical planning consent for an additional bathroom.

Garden and Grounds

Accessed via a private driveway lined by mature trees, you arrive at a sizable parking area that can accommodate multiple vehicles; one could look to build a detached garage subject to the usual planning consents. The beautiful gardens and grounds serve as a highlight, enveloped by an array of distinguished trees and featuring two paddocks to the north and south measuring approximately 4.5 acres. An expansive south-facing lawn, adorned with flourishing borders, leads to a patio and BBQ area, complemented by a well-appointed kitchen garden. Adjacent to the main house stands a detached outbuilding, presently utilised as a gym, while to the west lies Guy's Farm Lodge, a charmingly renovated detached cottage boasting two bedrooms, a kitchen, and a bathroom. Set amidst its own garden with a south-facing terrace, this cottage presents an ideal opportunity for an Air BnB venture or accommodation for guests, an au pair, or relative.

Why live in the Witterings?

People flock to East Wittering during the holiday season thanks to our world-famous beaches that are so beautiful and a way of life that’s relaxed and warm.

It’s little wonder we experienced significant building development during the 1960s and ‘80s when our rich mix of character house styles in the Witterings made it hard for people to leave. Many of the properties in the area enjoy wonderful views across the English Channel and the sound of distant waves provides a soothing backing track to everyday life here.

There’s no shortage of things to do in the area, especially if you enjoy spending time on the beach, playing water sports and experiencing the countryside and wildlife.  Both East and West Wittering are well known for sailing and surfing and there are local sailing clubs at West Wittering, Itchenor and Dell Quay and mooring facilities at Chichester Marina. West Wittering beach is postcard-perfect with its vast expanses of fine golden sand while East Wittering is more typically English with a shingle shelf that’s exposed when the tide goes out leaving behind stunning areas of wet sand where you can make sandcastles to your heart’s content. The nearby Bracklesham Bay is especially popular with surfers, divers, windsurfers and paddle boarders as well as being a treasure trove for fossil hunters.

We have everything here you need to enjoy this idyllic lifestyle here. In the village you’ll find a good selection of shops, including mini supermarkets, greengrocers, butchers, banks, bakers and a fishmonger and everything is close by in Chichester and Portsmouth.  We have two local schools for children up to 11 years of age at East Wittering Community Primary School and West Wittering Parochial C of E School and a choice of secondary schools and further education options in Chichester.
