A wonderful character home in 1.5 acres on the southern side of this highly prestigious road, having harbour views from its roof terrace to the main channel and the South Downs beyond
Situated on one of the wider plots on the south side of Spinney Lane, Larkfield is a superb character home with extremely versatile accommodation. It sits at the end of the lane in a peaceful location backing onto open farmland to the rear providing wonderful far reaching views. The property is beautifully presented with spacious and imaginatively laid-out accommodation with attractive natural wood finishes.
The ground floor accommodation flows from the generous welcoming reception hall and at the heart of the house is a stunning farmhouse style open plan kitchen/breakfast/sitting room, which incorporates a range of solid handmade units with a large seating area with doors leading to the well-maintained rear garden. Adjacent to the kitchen is a useful utility room. The impressive dual aspect drawing room has polished wood floors, a feature fireplace and two sets of doors, again leading to the gardens.
The accommodation features two bedrooms on the ground floor, one being en-suite. The large cloakroom could also be converted to provide a shower room. A formal dining room and study complete the accommodation on this level. Stairs from the hall give access to the fabulous master suite, which has a large ensuite bathroom and a balcony overlooking the back garden. Also on this floor are two good sized bedrooms and a family bathroom.
This property has 1.5 acres of land.
Larkfield is accessed via a sweeping gravel driveway giving ample off-road parking and leading to the double garage. To the side of the property is a boathouse, ideal for storing all things boating or perhaps classic cars. The attractive rear gardens are beautifully maintained and mainly laid to lawn with mature shrubs and herbaceous borders. The sundeck provides wonderful views of the garden and fields at the rear and the water and visitor pontoon at Itchenor to the front. The current owners have recently purchased a paddock from a local farmer which provides an additional dimension to the property. Direct access to the harbour and sailing club is also possible on foot via a footpath further up Spinney Lane.
Itchenor has a thriving sailing club and moorings for all kinds of boats and yachts. The club also provides competitive sailing at the highest level. The village has a well established community with a small church and The Ship pub. Much of the surrounding countryside is designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Local shops at nearby Birdham with a Post Office/store, or at East Wittering two miles to the south, with a small Tesco, schools and a doctors surgery. There is a local country club with gym, squash and tennis courts and an excellent choice of pubs and restaurants in the surrounding area. Further along the coast are sandy beaches at West Wittering. Lovely walks and cycling can be enjoyed along Salterns Way from the beach to Chichester.
This historic cathedral city offers a range of shopping facilities, restaurants and the renowned Festival Theatre. There is a wide variety of sporting activities including horseracing, motoring events and flying at Goodwood. There are excellent schools including the renowned Westbourne House.
Travel south from Chichester on the A286 towards West Wittering. At the mini roundabout at Birdham, bear right on the B2179 signposted West Wittering. After about a mile, turn right towards Itchenor. Spinney Lane can be found on the right hand side just before St Nicholas Church and Larkfield is on the right hand side at the far end of the road.
