Little Oldwick Barn is a fantastic conversion of a period barn into a stylish and creative family home which has been finished to the highest standard. The integrity of the barn has been cleverly maintained with exposed brick work and beams throughout the house and has stylish tiling throughout the ground floor

On entering, you are immediately struck by the wealth of natural light, never more apparent than in the reception hall, with floor to ceiling windows on each side which flood the house with light and maximises the views of the gardens. The accommodation on the ground floor is largely open plan and makes the most of the space available. The drawing room can either be very cosy beside the open fire or can spill out into the whole room making the most of the vaulted ceiling. The open plan kitchen/breakfast room/dining room really is the heart of the house with bespoke Chalon kitchen and a large central island. The dining room is next to the kitchen and has retractable French doors opening onto the garden.

There is a separate games room and a guest bedroom with en suite bathroom on the ground floor as well.

The staircase in the reception hall gives rise to the first floor with 3 further bedrooms. The master bedroom with William Holland en suite bathroom is absolutely stunning complete with wooden flooring and exposed brickwork. Two further bedrooms are accessed via a suspended landing. Both rooms are equally stylish with en suite bathrooms.

Externally the house sits in approximately 2.173 acres of gardens, mainly laid to lawn interspersed with mature trees. To the southern side of the house there is a fantastic courtyard which enjoys a good view of surrounding countryside and is a perfect suntrap. There is a separate shepherd’s hut at the far end of the garden which would make for a perfect home office, guest accommodation or indeed a small B&B business. Planning permission for a separate garage had been granted, but has now lapsed.

This property has 2.17 acres of land.


Little Oldwick Barn is situated on the edge of West Lavant in a popular hamlet surrounded by the striking open countryside of the South Downs National Park whilst being close to the bustling and vibrant city of Chichester. With easy access to Goodwood, the location is ideal for those interested in horse racing, golf and for motor enthusiasts wanting to attend the annual Festival of Speed and the Revival meeting.

Chichester offers extensive shopping, the renowned Festival Theatre, ancient cathedral, Summer Arts Festival, galleries, museums and restaurants. Sailing may be enjoyed at the many centres around Chichester Harbour and there are many miles of foot and bridle paths on the South Downs. Chichester has a mainline railway station with connecting services along the South Coast to London Victoria and from nearby Havant to London Waterloo.
