The interior has been beautifully refurbished, creating a warm and welcoming family home, which combines period character and contemporary style.

The stone-flagged reception hall is partially panelled and leads to a beautifully proportioned sitting room of nearly 24ft in length with a handsome open fireplace and views over the walled garden.

Beyond this room a separate study offers the flexibility for those wishing to work from home.

The kitchen/dining room has recently been fitted with a hand-built kitchen including stone work-surfaces, decorative lighting and concealed integrated appliances.

A twin-oven oil-fired AGA is set in a tiled chimney breast providing a traditional country kitchen feel.

A panelled archway opens onto a generous family room with double casement doors leading to the terrace and garden.

The layout of these rooms provides an ideal space for informal entertaining.

On the first floor there is a very generous master bedroom with a well-appointed en-suite wet room.

There are two further double bedrooms and a family bathroom.

All the rooms have the benefit of built-in storage space.

The property is approached by way of double gates opening on to a stone shingled driveway and parking area.

The immediate gardens are enclosed by attractive old brick and flint walls with a central lawn and well-stocked borders.

Two wrought iron gates open south on to a further area of garden where a generous terrace is approached by way of double casement doors from the family room.

The garden is surrounded by mature trees and well-established shrubs and there is a most attractive children’s treehouse.

With its combination of rural living and easy access to local amenities in Lavant and Chichester, Peacock Lodge really does offer the best of both worlds, with no forward chain.

Price £1,850,000.
