Full description

Built in 1912 and retaining much of its period charm, The Danes is an architecturally interesting property which offers well proportioned accommodation and a large one bedroom self contained annexe.

The feeling of grandeur becomes apparent upon entering the house with a large welcoming entrance hall and sweeping staircase. To one side is a superb large main reception room with an open fireplace. In addition there is a stunning dining room, a large family room, a modern kitchen / breakfast room and a good sized utility room. The kitchen has granite work tops and an AGA.

The four bedrooms lead off from a large landing. The master bedroom has a dressing room and a recently refitted en suite bathroom. Each of the bedrooms would comfortably take a double bed. There is also a family bathroom.

The annexe is linked to the main house and is well proportioned throughout. It includes a sitting room, kitchen / diner, double bedroom, dressing room and bathroom. It has its own access to the rear.

An electric gate opens to the sweeping gravel drive leading to a covered parking area with space for up to four cars. This is linked to the former coach house, which provides ample storage and currently houses a sauna. There are two rooms above accessed via an external metal staircase.

The well maintained south facing gardens, which are predominantly to the front of the property, are mostly laid to lawn and enclosed on three sides by woods, ensuring a high level of privacy. A stepped patio in front of the house looks out over the garden and is a real sun trap.



Slindon is one of the most desirable villages in the South Downs National Park, with many of the original houses owned by the National Trust. The village has two churches, a cricket club, a primary school and private school, a thriving shop and café - The Forge, and a popular pub and restaurant - The Spur. The surrounding area offers wonderful Downland walks. Chichester and Arundel, with their many attractions, are both within 10 miles of the village. Barnham train station is 4 miles away.

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.
