There is a part-galleried first floor landing leading to five bedrooms, some with glorious views and two separate bathrooms. The house sits in a plot approaching half an acre and has been completely redesigned by the current owner to take advantage of the passage of the sun, creating hard landscaped seating areas, hideaways and views. There is a double garage with studio room above at the front of the property and single garage to the rear. Warningcamp is an idyllic hamlet on the fringes of Arundel in an area of outstanding natural beauty, within the beautiful South Downs National Park.

There is a wide choice of sporting and recreational activities locally including horse racing at both Goodwood and Fontwell Park, numerous golf courses, sailing at Littlehampton and Chichester Harbour. The charming historic market town of Arundel is lined with antique shops, boutique shops, cafes, restaurants and an historic castle, priory and cathedral.
