A substantial and detached house (2,669 sq ft) with well-balanced accommodation, situated within lovely grounds in a semi-rural location between West Wittering and Itchenor
Believed to have been constructed circa 1926, this charming and spacious detached family home provides well balanced accommodation sitting centrally within large grounds with a south-facing rural outlook. Subject to the usual planning consents the property could be enhanced.
Approached on a gravel drive and set back from the road, Grey Hills is currently arranged over two floors providing flexible living accommodation. On the ground floor features include a double reception room, dining room and a fifth bedroom/family room. There is a large kitchen/breakfast room providing lots of storage, a utility room, cloakroom and an integral garage. Upstairs, arranged around a good sized landing, there are four bedrooms (one en suite), study, family bathroom and further cloakroom. Above, the loft is a very good size, and in our opinion ideal for conversion. The garden is also a particular feature. Surrounding the main house the grounds are mainly laid to lawn with a variety of mature and newly planted shrubs and plants within the borders. To the rear of the house there is a patio, and to one side of the property there is a garden store. Plenty of off street parking is provided towards the front and side.
Grey Hills is situated within the parish of West Wittering, just over a mile from the centre of the picturesque sailing village of Itchenor with its popular and renowned sailing club. The property is also conveniently located a short distance from both Birdham Pool Marina, Chichester Marina, the blue flag beach at West Wittering and National Trust owned East Head. West Wittering has an array of small, individually run, shops, public houses, garden centre, beach cafe and a restaurant. The village also provides a hugely popular primary school and church. The "Salterns Way" cycle path is nearby, linking West Wittering to Chichester along with many miles of footpaths. The Cathedral City of Chichester lies some 6 miles to the north and offers a broader range of shopping, cultural and leisure facilities including the renowned Festival Theatre, galleries, museums and restaurants. Aside from sailing, leisure facilities within the area include golf at Goodwood, horse riding, cricket and tennis at the Harbour Way Country Club (approx. ½ mile distant). Horseracing may be enjoyed at Fontwell and Goodwood where the annual Festival of Speed, and Revival meetings are also hosted.
The mainline station in Chichester provides a regular service to London Victoria (via Gatwick Airport) in about 1 hour 40 minutes, and Havant station to the west provides a faster service to London Waterloo (via Guildford) in about 1 hour 20 minutes.
