The Property This 18th Century house was Listed Grade II in 1986 and has a handsome brick and flint facade and central covered entrance porch. A remote controlled five bar gate opens onto a courtyard style approach immediately to the north of the house. The flagged entrance hall is over 18 ft in length and leads to three south facing reception rooms including a panelled sitting room, dining room with doors onto the garden and welcoming snug with open fireplace having an attractive marble mantelpiece and further double doors opening onto the garden. To the east of the reception hall a tongue and groove panelled breakfast room with stone flagged floor leads to a secondary hallway with Egyptian limestone floor. This provides access to a well-appointed Stephen Anthony kitchen with granite worksurfaces, limestone flagged floor and integrated appliances including a range style cooker set in an attractive panelled chimney breast recess with mantelpiece. A cloak/shower room lies nearby and further down the hallway is a useful utility/boot room which keeps the white goods away from the main living areas and is also fitted by Stephen Anthony with extensive storage. The bedroom accommodation is arranged over two floors. The principal bedroom suite is reached by way of the south landing with three further bedrooms on the first floor and fifth bedroom on the second floor adjacent to a spacious family bathroom with attractive period style suite including roll top bath. Outside The courtyard approach to the house provides ample casual parking with a recently built detached double garage having roof storage area above. The former stable block to the north has been converted to create a most attractive annexe with sitting room, dining room, kitchen, two bedrooms, bathroom and its own self-contained garden. This provides ideal accommodation for extended family members or guests and could also be used as a home and income opportunity. The mature gardens lie principally to the south and east of the house. Doors from the dining room, sitting room and utility room open onto the garden which is enclosed to its southern boundary by well-established laurel hedging. A stone flagged and additional brick set terrace provide sheltered sitting areas with attractive brick and flint walls bordering the brick terrace and running alongside a colourful flower walk with deep borders either side stocked with roses, traditional flowering perennials and herbs. Large areas of lawn provide plenty of space for childrens' play areas and there are many handsome mature trees including walnut, willow, blue cedar and tulip tree. To the east a high hornbeam hedge screens a productive kitchen garden with raised borders and two greenhouses. Location The hamlet of Woodmancote lies between Chichester and Emsworth in rural, lightly wooded surroundings. Woodmancote itself has a popular local village pub and is within easy reach of the A27 and the surrounding villages of Southbourne, Westbourne and West Ashling. The cathedral city of Chichester lies some 7 miles to the east and offers an excellent range of shops, cafes and restaurants within its pedestrianised centre. To the west the pretty market town of Emsworth is some 3.5 miles away lying on the northern reaches of Chichester Harbour. This vibrant town also has a good selection of local shops, restaurants and two sailing clubs. Both Chichester and Emsworth have mainline stations providing services to London Victoria in about 1 hour 45 minutes and London Waterloo in about 1 hour and 25 minutes respectively. This area of the south coast and particularly Chichester Harbour provides some of the most popular sailing facilities in the country within easy reach of London. Whilst to the north, the South Downs National Park is criss-crossed with miles of footpaths and bridle paths ideal for horse riding, mountain biking and walking. There are numerous golf courses in the area and to the north east Goodwood is famous for its horse racing, annual Festival of Speed and the Revival at its historic motor circuit. The beaches of the Witterings are popular with many families and offer a variety of attractions for beach sports including windsurfing, landboarding and kitesurfing.
