An impressive period farmhouse, with ancillary buildings including a detached outhouse with two double garages and an apartment. The property is in the heart of the countryside yet only a short distance from the Cathedral City of Chichester and in easy reach of the South Downs in one direction and coastal village of Emsworth in another.
Dating in part from 1650, Woodmancote Farm House is approached through iron gates onto a broad gravelled forecourt. The flagstone reception hallway and its galleried landing immediately set the tone for this exceptional property. The inner hall opens to the boot room and a cloakroom, the adjacent family snug being made even cosier by its wood burner stove. The classic farmhouse kitchen has a four-oven Aga and a walk-in pantry and between the kitchen and dining room is a butler's pantry. The well-proportioned dining room has high ceilings and a large window. The charming drawing room has an interesting ornate ceiling, an open fireplace and two large picture windows looking out to the grounds. A study and a second cloakroom complete this floor.
There are six bedrooms and three bathrooms on the first floor. As you would expect from such an elegant home each of the principal rooms is light, spacious and has delightful views of the gardens. Back stairs lead to two further bedrooms.
The splendid and extensive grounds feature many mature trees and shrubs, a sunken garden, a tennis court and the garage out-building. The one bedroom apartment is a generous size.
Woodmancote Farm House has not been available to the open market for some time. Viewing this distinctive property is strongly recommended. EPC-E Main House

Many people move to Emsworth to enjoy the best of town, country and coastal life. It was once a fishing village that was known for boatbuilding, rope making and oyster farming. Many of these traditions are long gone, but Emsworth has retained much of its old-fashioned charm.The many artists who live and work here throw open their studio doors to show their work at the annual Emsworth Art Trail while the Emsworth Horticultural Society holds an annual fair over the August Bank Holiday, which includes demonstrations of ancient crafts such as glass blowing, wood turning, falconry and beekeeping.
