THE PROPERTY

A lovely 3 bedroom home forming part of a magnificent late Georgian mansion, formerly the seat of Lady Molyneux-Howard. Latterly used as a holiday home for patients of the Manor Hospital, the building was converted into apartments and townhouses at the turn of the 21st Century. This particular property forms part of the newer wing yet has been constructed in Georgian proportions to match the elegance of the original building. The accommodation is spread over 2 floors comprising an attractive sitting room with french doors to a private patio leading to some 22 acres of communal park-like ground, a fitted kitchen with a range of fitted appliances and downstairs cloakroom, whilst the first floor comprises 3 double bedrooms, an en suite bathroom and family bathroom. Outside there is a double carport with shared car washing facilities, the use of beautifully maintained park grounds of around 22 acres and ample visitor parking. The building occupies a semi-rural position between Chichester and Arundel, and as such would be ideal as a lock-and-leave, or alternatively for full time occupation. The surrounding area provides a wide choice of recreational activities including walking, cycling and riding in the South Downs National Park, various golf courses, horse racing at Goodwood and Fontwell Park, sailing on Chichester and Littlehampton harbours and bathing and windsurfing from various beaches along the south coast. The property provides an ideal opportunity to purchase an easy-to-run permanent home in elegant surroundings or alternatively a second home within easy reach of many recreational activities in this pretty part of West Sussex.
