THE PROPERTY

A unique opportunity, on Chichester Harbour including one of the South Coast's most peaceful and undiscovered waterfront properties. The combination of Hook Farm and Old Park Wood is totally unique and cannot be replicated. With around one kilometre of prime harbour frontage, combined with a magnificent ancient woodland and a character property upgraded to modern living, Hook Farm offers an unparalleled opportunity for the discerning property owner seeking inspiring space and privacy within easy access of London and Southern England. Lot 1 - Hook Farm with about 6 acres at a Guide Price of £7.5 million. Lot 2 - Old Park Wood with about 85 acres at a Guide Price of £2.25 million. Lot 1. Hook Farm comprises 5,200 sq ft (480 sqm) of Sussex farmhouse with 1,100 sq ft of traditional outbuildings. While the original part of the property is 400-500 years old, and the character has been sympathetically maintained, the house has been extended and modernised. In recent years, extensive refurbishment and upgrade works were undertaken to bring the specification up to a very high standard. The interior of Hook Farm is in excellent condition and retains the character and charm of an old Sussex farmhouse, with original beams and open fireplaces. However, extensions and renovations over the past 25 years have transformed the property into an attractive family home or manageable weekend coastal property, with modern facilities. Hook Farm is not listed offering flexibility for further development if required, subject to planning. Hook Farm has c.200 metres of Chichester Harbour frontage, including a historic oyster pond feature, along with a slipway, a jetty and two moorings. Lot 2. Old Park Wood is probably the most spectacular woodland on the south east coast of England. A unique ancient woodland of approx 85 acres with c.800m of prime Chichester Harbour frontage and a rare combination of woodland and shoreline with no public access. This extraordinary privacy creates an extremely rare and incredibly tranquil environment in this inspiring and dramatic location. The history of Old Park Wood can be traced back over a thousand years. The ancient woodland hosts a diverse range of flora and fauna, including oak standards with hazel coppice, interspersed with other species including ash, sweet chestnut, birch and beech. There is an abundance of Butcher's Broom, a now rare plant, along with orchids, primroses and millions of native bluebells. This extraordinary habitat, bordering directly onto a large harbour, attracts an abundance of waterfowl, woodland birds, bats, deer and other wildlife.
