With elegant proportions, and set in stunning grounds, a fine Grade II Listed family home (5,814 sq ft) centrally located within this popular Sussex village of Oving.
Formally a vicarage, St Andrews House was designed by John Elliot and constructed in 1839. Today the property is presented to a very high standard throughout though still maintaining handsome Victorian features including elevations of galleted Sussex flint.
With generous proportions and high ceilings, the house offers adaptable living space including an impressive drawing room, with marble fireplace and a fine bay of floor to ceiling windows. Also is a reception hall, elegant dining room, both an informal and formal study/sitting room and kitchen family room. The first floor provides an impressive landing with the master bedroom suite leading off, with dressing room and stunning bath and shower room. Guest accommodation (en suite) is also provided on the first floor, with views towards St Andrews Church, and a further bedroom (also en suite) is located behind. The second floor currently offers four bedrooms and a bathroom (though this could be easily converted to provide a good size apartment for a family member or nanny). The lower floor has a cinema/games room and plenty of additional storage.
Standing within grounds of just under an acre, off Church Lane, St Andrews House is approached via a pair of iron gates onto a gravelled driveway. Parking is provided for a number of vehicles and there is also a detached three bay garage. The gardens offer a stunning array of flowering plants and climbers all complementing each other, with formal lawns and meandering pathway. Terracing is provided, ideal for entertaining or dining. The perimeter of the grounds are bordered by a variety of flint walls, mature trees and hedging.
The property is situated within the centre of the popular village of Oving, three miles distant of the cathedral city of Chichester. The village has a beautiful church, village hall and popular public house and is ideally situated for access to the South Downs National Park and Chichester Harbour. Chichester offers a broad range of shopping, cultural and leisure facilities including the renowned Festival Theatre, galleries, museums and restaurants.
The propperty is priced at £1950,000.
