A lovely Georgian farmhouse, believed to date from 1700 but with origins as far back as 1609 and modernised over the last decade to create a fine home, a short distance from Chichester city centre. Being of historic and architectural interest, the house is Listed Grade II and is presented in excellent order throughout with a wealth of character features including a large Inglenook fireplace in the sitting room and well preserved wall beams. The spacious accommodation has two reception rooms, with a 22' sitting room and separate dining room whilst the kitchen and utility rooms were equipped by Sylvana of Chichester. There are four double bedrooms, one of which has a staircase to a huge loft room, perfect as a teenager/children's suite.

Fishbourne village is a most popular and well-respected location with two pubs, a church, primary school and regular bus services to Chichester city centre.

The area is generally well-renowned for its cultural and leisure facilities with views from the house to the South Downs National Park and Kingley Vale whilst the house is within a couple of miles of Chichester Harbour, with its plethora of sailing clubs and facilities.
