This well-presented family house lies in a no-through private road adjoining open fields and set in what is essentially a double plot with gardens of about half an acre together with a detached garden room/living space. The house itself has been significantly enhanced and updated by the present owners, improving its layout to create a light and spacious kitchen/family/dining room which has become the focus of everyday living. Other numerous aspects of the house have been improved including quality double glazing throughout and upgraded bathrooms to both the family bedrooms and principal bedroom suite. In place of the former garage a detached garden room has been built with air source underfloor heating. This has a light and spacious open plan interior with vaulted ceilings, glazed gable end and balcony style mezzanine bedroom making the most of the lovely rural views. In addition to its original driveway, including electric car charging point, a further adjacent area has been landscaped for casual parking. This has a power supply available nearby should additional lighting/car port be required. Doors from both the sitting room and adjacent kitchen/family room open onto a deck which runs the width of the house and equipped with a Wellis electric hot tub. Immediately adjacent lies the Garden Room with cloak/shower room which also provides a changing room for users of the hot tub. The immediate garden is laid to lawn, having borders stocked with traditional perennials and architectural plants to provide colour and interest. An additional area of garden lying to the north has a series of raised beds for vegetables including asparagus bed, soft fruits and cordoned apple and pear trees. Soft fruits include raspberries, tayberries and gooseberries. Beyond this the remainder of the garden is laid to grass with mature trees and further views over the adjoining field. At the far eastern boundary, nestled away in a semi-wooded area, a garden studio has been built with double glazed doors and windows looking out over the field and has been provided with power. This makes an ideal area for those wishing to work from home or requiring a studio or workshop. The small hamlet of Hambrook can be found just outside Funtington, having easy access to both Chichester and Emsworth and is only a short distance from the railway halt at Nutbourne. The Chidham Peninsula can also be found nearby. Local facilities in the area include Kingley Vale, various public houses at Woodmancote, Funtington and West Ashling. Funtington also has its own local farm shop. Chichester city centre is within 6.5 miles and provides a wide range of pedestrianised facilities with many of the national chains, local boutiques and a number of restaurants and bistros. Recreational activities include the Chichester Festival Theatre, Pallant House Gallery and of course the Goodwood Estate, which hosts the internationally renowned Festival of Speed and the September Revival meeting at its historic motor circuit. The harbour at Chichester provides a safe haven for yachts and dinghies and there are many sailing clubs within a few miles driving distance.
