THE PROPERTY

THE PROPERTY This superb family home lies at the end of a long driveway, passing through a small orchard of fruit trees to an expansive approach and parking area to the north of the house. Fairyhill was built in 1938 for the Henty family, a famous family of Chichester brewers, and was intentionally orientated north/south to give the owners superb southerly views to the spire of Chichester Cathedral. A 25ft long reception hall leads to four reception rooms, all facing south, with three sets of double doors from the family room opening onto a wide terrace running the length of the house. Fairyhill was designed to allow plenty of natural light into its interior and has the proportions and feel of a Georgian property, with well proportioned rooms, high corniced ceilings and three quarter length sash windows. The two principal reception rooms lie directly south of the entrance and are divided by double doors flanked by bookcases allowing these two rooms to be opened up for entertaining. The family room and kitchen/breakfast room lie just to the east and are approached by way of their own hallway, creating a welcoming space for everyday living and relaxation. On the other side of the house to the west lies a sitting room and study, ideal for those wishing to work from home. Also, on this side of the house a small hallway with changing facilities and second cloakroom leads to a sheltered west facing wall terrace with heated swimming pool. The first floor is equally generous with up to six bedrooms, two bathrooms and two shower rooms, including a principal suite and guest bedroom with adjacent shower room. The layout of the accommodation is highly adaptable, allowing a suite of rooms including bedrooms 5 and 6 to create a self-contained annexe if required. On the second floor is a large loft/studio room of just under 26 ft in length, lit by roof lights and currently used as a teenagers' sitting room. This is set within a large, partially boarded roof space also fitted with further roof dormer windows. It is thought this area could perhaps offer considerable potential for the creation of further residential accommodation which could be used as a staff flat, guest suite or recreational area for teenagers. Any further conversion of this area would have to comply with current building regulations. OUTSIDE Fairyhill is surrounded by its own gardens and grounds of some 5 acres, ensuring a high degree of privacy.

OUTSIDE Fairyhill is surrounded by its own gardens and grounds of some 5 acres, ensuring a high degree of privacy. The long driveway passes through an orchard of apple, pear and plum trees and a beautiful area of bluebell wood lies just to the north. The south facing terrace runs the length of the house and is approached by way of three sets of double doors from the family room. To the west, a sheltered walled terrace surrounds a heated swimming pool and provides an ideal area for outside entertaining. Beyond this, a further area of garden leads to a hard tennis court and nearby former kitchen garden with large fruit cage and two greenhouses. THE LOCATION Fairyhill has a highly convenient location, located just to the north west of Chichester within 1.5 miles of the city centre and within convenient travelling distance of a number of good local schools including Oakwood, Bishop Luffa and Westbourne House. Chichester itself provides a wide range of facilities including the internationally known Festival Theatre, Pallant House Gallery, excellent shopping facilities arranged within its pedestrianised city centre and a mainline station providing a regular train service to London Victoria in about 1 hour 40 minutes. A slightly faster service is also available from either Havant or Rowlands Castle to London Waterloo, in about 1 hour 15 minutes. Recreational activities in the surrounding area are numerous, many of them centred on the Goodwood Estate (2.5 miles away) famous for its horseracing and annual summer meeting of Glorious Goodwood, together with the prestigious Festival of Speed and the September Revival of its historic motor circuit. There is also a Golf & Country Club at Goodwood providing golf, tennis courts, squash courts, swimming pool and gym. Chichester Harbour, some 2 miles to the south, has long been popular with sailors and there are many well established clubs notably at Chichester Yacht Basin, Bosham and Itchenor. The coastline to the south and in particular the sandy beaches at East Head, provide many opportunities for bathing, windsurfing and kitesurfing. To the north lies the rich and varied countryside of the South Downs National Park, criss-crossed with miles of footpaths and bridlepaths, as well as being home to many pretty villages with good country pubs and farm shops. Communications are good with road access to London provided by the A3M at Havant, whilst the coastal A27 connects with Portsmouth and Southampton to the west and Worthing, Brighton and Eastbourne to the east. Portsmouth has an excellent range of shopping facilities at Gunwharf Quays and a ferry service to France, whilst Southampton airport is within easy travelling distance by car. Goodwood also provides a private airfield for smaller aircraft.

Directions From Chichester proceed north west along the B2178, signposted East Ashling and Funtington. After approximately 1.5 miles the driveway to Fairyhill will be seen on the left hand side, just after the turning to Brandy Hole Lane on the right.
