Full description

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

Situation

Nestled beneath the South Downs and between Emsworth and Chichester, Woodmancote forms part of the parish of Westbourne. On the border between Hampshire and West Sussex, Westbourne features an attractive church, doctor's surgery and a range of shops including a convenience store and the property itself is just a short distance from the locally renowned Woodmancote Arms. The harbour side town of Emsworth is approximately a mile away with a railway station giving easy rail access to London, Brighton and Southampton, whilst the nearby A27 and A3 provide excellent road communications. There is also a main line station at Havant for Rail Link which is the fastest route into London.

Why live in Emsworth?

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.

Emsworth has a great selection of good schools, including St. James Primary School, Emsworth Primary School, Warblington Secondary School and Bourne Community College. The town also has many independent shops, a butcher, fishmonger, florist, delicatessen and supermarkets and it’s no surprise that, in a recent survey, Emsworth received the highest shopper approval rating of all shopping centres in the borough. We’re also spoilt by the number of popular pubs, bars and restaurants here, such as 36 On The Quay, where you can enjoy fine dining with a waterside view, and Fat Olives that occupies a former fisherman’s cottage.

Of course, one of our major attractions is the water – it’s a paradise for sailors, with beautiful waterside properties lining the harbour and a choice of local sailing clubs. Hayling Island is equally popular, with its reputation as the spiritual home of windsurfing and miles of glorious seafront that overlook the Isle of Wight, the Solent and Selsey Bill.
