To the rear of the property there is a spacious kitchen/family room, with all the units handmade of wood with ample worktops, a large Delling oven and gas hob and a slate floor with underfloor heating. Double doors open onto the stunning garden. To the side of the kitchen there is a useful utility/boot room. Flowing back towards the front of the property, there is a good sized private study. A cloakroom completes the ground floor. The first floor has four large double bedrooms, one of which is currently used as a dressing room with attractive fitted wardrobes and shelving. The modern family bathroom has a bath and a separate shower unit. Subject to the usual planning consents the spacious loft could be converted to provide further accommodation.
The large detached annexe has a kitchenette with running water and enjoys a pleasant outlook down the garden. In our opinion this useful ancillary accommodation is ideal for use as a family games room, studio or further home office.

In all, the property is set in gardens and grounds which extend to approximately 0.3 acres.
Oaklands is located on the edge of the hugely popular and picturesque sailing village of Bosham, associated with the sea since Roman times. Today the quay provides a long established and thriving sailing club and launch access for small craft at most states of the tide. Old Bosham has a fascinating history including the feature of the church within the Bayeux Tapestry. The village also provides a primary school, popular public house overlooking the harbour, a further public house, restaurant, tea rooms, arts & crafts centre, village store, post office, medical centre and, within short level walking distance of Oaklands, a railway station (towards Portsmouth and Chichester). Much of the surrounding countryside is designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the Chichester Harbour Conservancy ensures that the character of the area is preserved. Historically Chichester Harbour has provided a safe anchorage with many facilities and is now a wonderful centre for sailing with a multitude of moorings for most craft (subject to availability). There is also a useful slipway suitable for tenders and dinghies from the quay.
Chichester offers a broad range of shopping, cultural and leisure facilities including the renowned Festival Theatre, galleries, museums and restaurants. Aside from sailing, leisure facilities within the area include golf at either Goodwood or Hunston, bathing from the beaches off West Wittering and the National Trust owned East Head, horse riding and walking around the harbour and on The Downs. Horseracing may be enjoyed at Goodwood where the annual Festival of Speed, and Revival meetings are also hosted. The mainline station in Chichester provides a regular service to London Victoria in about 1 hour 40 minutes, and Havant station to the west provides a faster service to London Waterloo in about 1 hour 20 minutes.
