Property Information

A truly lovely detached family home, of considerable charm and character, standing in large, level, south facing park like gardens, in a highly regarded residential location, within immediate proximity of Lancing College Prep. The Bishop’s Lodging as this home is named, has interesting historical connections, being the former residence of the Bishop of Chichester and is a warm, welcoming and comfortable home. Retaining much of the character and soul of a bygone age, the house has been sympathetically modernised and extensively improved in recent years, to create the perfect blend of original character and detail, with the comforts of modern living.
The accommodation is exceptionally light, with all principal rooms enjoying a sunny southerly aspect, spacious and beautifully proportioned. On the ground floor, the main focal point is the large, superbly fitted kitchen/breakfast room, with doors leading through into a lovely sitting room, both of which overlook the gardens. In addition, there are a further 3 separate reception rooms, which offer flexibility and comfort for the family to spread out and relax. On the first floor, there are 4 double bedrooms, with the master suite, having a huge en-suite bathroom and dressing room, while enjoying truly stunning views over the gardens and surrounding area. There is considerable potential too, for expanding into the large roof space and massively increasing the living space further, subject of course to the relevant consents. One of the outstanding features of the property, are the fine gardens and grounds, which are large and attractively landscaped and are a rare and unusual feature for homes in this area. Being level and laid principally to an expanse of lawn, they are particularly “family friendly” and enjoy a fabulous, sunny southerly aspect. Externally this is a particularly attractive, individual and striking home, set behind an imposing boundary wall and also has a double private driveway, leading to a 3 car garage
