Just beyond the north eastern border of the busy city of Chichester you come suddenly to a lovely tranquil area of farmland with views northwards to Goodwood and the South Downs.
Here, surrounded by fields of barley, is a beautiful Grade II listed farmhouse with the most perfect and immaculate gardens, with neatly trimmed lavender bushes lining the pathway to the wisteria clad front door.
Part of the house dates back about 400 years and was originally the farmhouse for Old Farm, which produced the food for Graylingwell Hospital.
Some time ago it was divided into two, the major part of which is now for sale through Henry Adams at a guide price of £865,000.
The present owner has, over the years, improved and extended the interior with the greatest care, imagination and attention to detail, exposing beams and brickwork and adding wood and flagstone floors to create a home of immense charm and character.
The accommodation is now arranged over three floors, with two reception rooms, a study, utility room and a bright and stylish kitchen on the ground floor, and five bedrooms and four bathrooms upstairs.
This is an enchanting home with a truly wonderful garden to the south and west of the house, beautifully planted and sheltered from the north by mature beech hedges and with secluded areas to spend quiet summer days.
A neatly gravelled driveway leads round to the back of the house where there is a double garage and plenty of parking space.
