Property description

An impressive, country house of over 6,000 , built in the Arts & Crafts style and surrounded by gardens and grounds of some 4.2 acres including a lawned tennis court and a variety of useful outbuildings.

Hambrook Hall was built some 90 years ago in the Arts & Crafts style, popular in the 1920's and 30's. The interior has all the style and character of the period with beautiful oak panelling, exposed beams and impressive open fireplaces. The house has since been extended and re-modelled, creating a beautifully proportioned home combining the light and space of modern design with its original traditional charm and character. Formal reception rooms to the front of the house include a drawing room of over 33' in length, sitting room and study. The drawing room leads through to open plan living areas with a spacious kitchen opening on to glazed breakfast and dining rooms, creating a relaxed informal area for everyday family living. Beyond the main kitchen lies a secondary kitchen and family room which can be used as part of the family living space or as a self-contained area for teenagers, guests etc.

The bedroom accommodation is equally generous and spread over first and second floors. All bedrooms have their own bathroom or shower room and include generous principal and guest suites on the first floor with dressing rooms as well as their own bathroom or shower rooms.

Remote controlled gates on brick piers open on to a long tree-lined driveway approaching Hambrook Hall from the south, leading to a wide parking area and turning circle to the east of the house. A secondary driveway leads to the garaging and a useful range of outbuildings. Surrounding lawned gardens are planted with a number of impressive trees creating attractive focal points. Doors from both the dining room and breakfast room open directly on to a west-facing terrace looking out over the lawned tennis court. The surrounding gardens provide a perfect setting for the house, ensuring its privacy and having a number of interesting features including a Cumberland stone lily pond with footbridge, purchased by the original owners from the Ideal Home Exhibition in London in the 1930's. In all some 4.2 acres.

Although postally Hambrook, the house is just over a mile from Funtington village centre, one of the most popular villages within convenient travelling distance of Chichester and lying close to the foot of the South Downs. There is a thriving village community with a 13th century parish church, farm shop, pub and a well-known restaurant within the village itself. The neighbouring village of West Ashling has a primary school and there is an excellent organic butchers at Adsdean as well as a sub-post office in Hambrook.

The Cathedral City of Chichester provides more comprehensive shopping facilities, arranged partly within a pedestrianised centre and is only some 7 miles distance. The nearby countryside of the South Downs National Park provides many opportunities for walking, riding and mountain biking. Chichester Harbour and the waters of The Solent have some of the best sailing facilities within easy reach of London and Bosham is only some 4 miles away. The coastline provides many other facilities for water sports and Goodwood, some 7 miles to the north east is internationally known for its horse racing, golf course and annual meetings of the Festival of Speed and the Revival. A choice of mainline stations at Havant, Rowland's Castle and Petersfield provide regular services to London Waterloo whilst Chichester has a regular service to London Victoria.
