This charming and unique property is set in a semi rural location on the fringe of the desirable village of Slindon, nestled at the foot of the South Downs. It benefits from a secluded plot and backs on to neighbouring farmland. The property is offered for sale leasehold with the National Trust owning the freehold. It will benefit from a full 99 year lease.
Presented in wonderful condition throughout, the property has been renovated by the current owner whilst still retaining many original features. Believed to have been built in 1750, Biddleside Farmhouse sits in a good size plot which also includes a pond, with resident ducks and moorhens.
The ground floor has a welcoming entrance hall which opens into the dining room with an attractive fireplace. The kitchen / breakfast room, with adjoining snug is the hub of the home. The kitchen has a comprehensive range of fitted cupboards and a Rangemaster double oven and hob. The snug has a log burner. In addition there is a sitting room with a log burner in a brick fireplace, with French doors leading to the garden. A study, utility room and WC complete the ground floor. The first floor has a master bedroom with en suite shower room and a dressing room, three further double bedrooms and a stylish refitted family bathroom.
The attractive garden has a range of mature shrubs and trees, offering a high level of privacy. There are two large sheds. To the front is ample off road parking for a number of vehicles.
The current ground rent of £25 per annum will be replaced with an RPI indexed linked ground rent.
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.

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.
