An impressive, Arts & Craft country freehold home enjoying uninterrupted views across open countryside to the coastal plains and with an additional cottage and a self-contained annexe

With its pleasing symmetry and stylish interiors, Honer House offers substantial, flexible-use accommodation perfectly suited to both entertaining and modern family living. The grand, double-height reception hall offers a true sense of arrival on entering this enthralling property with its curved timber stairway and oval galleried landing, topped with a lantern roof light. The extensive, ground floor accommodation, comprises a formal dining and drawing room at the eastern wing of the house, both with feature fireplaces and doors giving access to the outside. The centrally located kitchen, dining and family room, offers a relaxed and comfortable setting for everyday life, with two sets of French doors opening out to a terrace. The western wing of the home has a self contained annexe comprising sitting room, kitchen, bedroom and bathroom, with access to the main house if required and offers the ideal space to accommodate a dependent relative, or a bolt-hole for visiting guests. The ground floor also offers a sun room and a conservatory/boot room, as well as a utility and cloakroom.

The first floor principal bedroom has an en suite bathroom with a link through to a study which may serve as a spacious dressing room or additional bedroom, if required. There are four further bedrooms, with four bathrooms. Two of the bedrooms have glazed doors opening onto the balcony, which features a classical stone balustrade and affords wonderful views to the south and south-west. A spiral staircase rises to the second floor, which offers a fabulous studio with a velux balcony with views towards Pagham Harbour suitable for a room for hobbies or additional storage space.

There is a self-contained cottage in the grounds of the property, with two bedrooms, which offers the opportunity for an extra income stream, or alternatively provide very comfortable, independent accommodation for guests or a relative.

Outside

The gardens and grounds at Honer House amount to approximately 2.6 acres, with panoramic views across the surrounding countryside. With its close proximity to the RSPB Pagham Harbour Nature Reserve, time spent relaxing in the garden allows opportunities to observe the wildlife attracted to the mudflats, saltmarshes and lagoons, with bird-spotting species likely to include egrets, godwits and Brent geese. The paved terraces and summerhouse are perfect for outdoor dining, with additional secluded spots for quiet sitting, and there is a tennis court should a burst of energy strike. The gardens are attractively designed, with manicured evergreen hedging forming knot gardens, areas laid to lawn and planting which includes architectural shrubs and perennial plants. A length of driveway gives access to the propertyand provides ample parking for cars and boat storage together with potential space for the building of a new garage, subject to the usual planning consents.
