An exceptional opportunity to acquire this unique harbourside property with planning consent for either extension of the existing house or the construction of a brand new house of some 7,509 sq.ft. The site of approx 0.7 acres has an enviable setting with private hard, slipway and mooring - under license from Chichester Harbour Conservancy.

Harbour House has a stunning location with direct frontage to the main channel of Chichester Harbour commanding panoramic views over the water to Itchenor Sailing Club in the west and as far as Dell Quay to the north east. Beyond, views reach as far as the South Downs National Park and Goodwood Racecourse.

The present house was built in the 1960's and was of such an impressive design that it was featured in the Homes & Gardens magazine in February 1965. Views to the water may be enjoyed from all the principal rooms and an indoor heated swimming pool is located in a conservatory directly alongside the sitting room taking full advantage of the impressive harbour-side views. To the north of the house a self-contained annexe can be used as guest accommodation or more private accommodation for extended family or dependent relatives. The triple bay garage provides generous secure parking with sail loft or storage areas in the roof above. It is felt that the interior of the house would benefit from refurbishment and updating.

In 2011 detailed planning permission was granted to demolish and build a new house of some 7300 sq.ft. (11/02113), or alternatively redesign and extend to 7,685 sq.ft. (granted in 2010 and renewed in 2013 ref: B1/13/02832/DOM). More details are available from this office.

The whole is set in mature gardens of some 0.7 acres and has the significant benefit of a private hard and slipway providing direct access to the water. The property also has the benefit of a private premium residents mooring under annual license from Chichester Harbour Conservancy at a fee currently at £77.51 per annum.

Harbour House is situated in the sought-after private estate of Greenacres, in perhaps one of the best locations on the south bank of Chichester Harbour. The village of Birdham is some 5 miles to the south of the cathedral city of Chichester and has a parish church, village primary school and shop. With the nearby facilities of Birdham Pool and Chichester Marina it is close to some of the best sailing facilities within convenient travelling distance of London. The nearby waters of the Solent are particularly popular with sailors and the area has a wide choice of sailing clubs and marinas.

The National Trust Reserve of East Head some 4 miles to the south, has perhaps the most picturesque sandy beaches in West Sussex and the award winning coastline of the Witterings in general provides many opportunities for swimming, windsurfing, kite surfing, surfing and land boarding. Nearby Goodwood also provides facilities including its internationally known racecourse, golf course, country club and airfield. It also plays host to the annual Festival of Speed and the Revival of its historic motor circuit. The rich countryside of the South Downs National Park provides exceptional opportunities for walking, horse riding and mountain biking.

There are several choices of vehicle access to London including the M27/A3 or the A285 via Petworth to the A283 joining the A3 at Milford. A mainline station at Chichester provides a regular service to either London Waterloo (via Havant) or London Victoria in about 1 hour 45 minutes and to Gatwick in about 1 hour 10 minutes. Southampton International Airport is approximately 35 miles to the west.
