This significant property is set in the heart of Felpham village.
The property is probably one of the original dwellings in the village dating back to 1668 and standing proudly on Limmer Lane. It would have undoubtedly had open fields leading directly to the foreshore.
The property is set in secluded, secure flint walled gardens with many sheltered areas to enjoy the sunshine. The property retains many original period features including sash windows, wood panelling, deep skirting boards and original panelled doors. There are fireplaces in the principal rooms and some feature cast iron fireplaces in the bedrooms and bathrooms. The current owners who have lived there over 30 years have sympathetically updated and improved the accommodation over the years to suit their family needs.
The property is accessed via a double gated drive onto the courtyard, which also gives access to the self contained studio annexe, garage and workshop.
A glazed entrance porch opens into the impressive hallway with an open staircase to the galleried landing. To the front of the property is the sitting room, which is of a dual aspect and has a fireplace. The drawing room has a feature bay window, wood panelling, a fireplace and ‘French’ doors opening onto the principal walled garden. At the rear is the kitchen/breakfast room with cream ‘Shaker’ style units, integral appliances and a recess, which is ideal for a ‘Range’ style cooker. There is a side door opening onto the rear garden and rear access onto a courtyard and separate utility room. There is also a study/fifth bedroom adjacent to the ground floor cloakroom.
On the first floor, there are three generous double bedrooms, two with full bathroom en suites and the third with an en suite WC and basin. The stairs rise again to the second floor with the fourth bedroom and en suite bathroom and a second room, which is pine clad and in the past has been used as the sun bed room.
The village of Felpham has a range of public houses and restaurants and Limmer Lane is within easy walking distance of Felpham beach and promenade with Sailing Club, tennis courts and two excellent beach cafes.
Bognor Regis town centre is approximately three miles to the east with its precinct shopping facilities, mainline railway station to London/Victoria and along the South Coast.
Guide price £715,000 freehold.
