Full description

Nestled in the heart of West Ashling village in the glorious South Downs National Park, this immaculately presented detached home offers classic style combined with spacious contemporary living. The building is originally believed to date from the Victorian period of the mid-19th century when it was a grain storage barn and has subsequently been converted into a fabulous residential dwelling.

The bright spacious accommodation is predominantly south facing and includes a welcoming entrance hall with a traditional flagstone floor and a cloakroom and boot room. The formal sitting room is at the front of the house and has a wood burner standing on a mellow brick hearth. A particular feature is the kitchen/family room with an electric five oven Aga and central work island at one end. There is a wide oak framed arch leading through to a lovely triple aspect snug, with white colour washed flint walls, a colourful stained glass window, large bay window and French doors out to an al fresco eating area. On the first floor there are four bedrooms and a family bathroom. The principal bedroom and main guest bedroom are both en suite. This beautiful home stands in a delightful 0.28 acre garden with a bespoke Alitex greenhouse and a detached brick outbuilding comprising double garage, workshop and store with potential to create an annexe, subject to consent. At the front there are double electric gates opening onto a wide driveway providing extensive parking. There is also a private parking bay outside the gates. The garden is an enthusiast haven with formal lawns, colourful borders and a large kitchen garden.



West Ashling is located about five miles North West of Chichester and has a local village pub, primary school and a picturesque mill pond. The area is a paradise for wildlife enthusiasts, with beautiful walks and cycle tracks over the South Downs and around Chichester Harbour. Local amenities can be found in nearby Funtington and Bosham. The cathedral city of Chichester offers excellent high street shopping, many fashionable restaurants, cafes and bars, the Festival Theatre and a mainline station to London Victoria. Goodwood 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.

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.
