Full description

Danesfield is a fairly unique property including main house, attached cottage, extensive gardens, paddocks and stabling, set within the South Downs National Park. Occupying a private position and siding onto woodland, the house sits nicely in its plot and benefits from southerly views down the gardens and paddocks.

Built in the 1920's, the property has been in the same family for many years. Later additions, including an extension to the rear and the cottage have created a versatile property. There is also a triple garage and ample parking on the gravel drive.

The house, which requires some modernisation, has three good size reception rooms, a kitchen / breakfast room, utility room and a conservatory on the ground floor. All of the reception rooms enjoy a south facing aspect with views down the garden. The first floor has a large master bedroom with an en suite bathroom, as well as four further bedrooms and a bathroom. A wooden fixed ladder leads to the loft room with access out onto the roof and fantastic views down the garden.

The cottage has two reception rooms, a kitchen, conservatory, utility room, ground floor bedroom and shower room and a first floor bedroom and en suite bathroom.

The grounds include a tennis court, heated swimming pool, extensive vegetable patch and a small paddock to the front with a gate, which in total measure approximately 2.7 acres. In addition there are 2.38 acres of paddock, with a separate access at the southern end. There are four stables in total.



There is excellent walking nearby within Slindon woods and there are good road links via the A27 and the A29. 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 west 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 and there is also jump racing at Fontwell. The historic town of Arundel offers a further range of shops and railway station, as does Barnham. Both centres are less than four miles away.

A fabulous combination of house, attached cottage, gardens, paddocks and stabling.

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.
