Located opposite the church in a tucked away position within this much favored village, a substantial detached house with the benefit of a south-facing garden, swimming pool and a self contained annexe.
Approached down a quiet no-through village lane towards the church, Dellfield is a surprisingly spacious family home situated within lovely south facing grounds. Particular features of the property not only include the tucked away position, but also the south facing aspect, addition of a self contained studio annexe, rural outlook and a swimming pool.
Upon entering the property there is a good feeling of space with ample areas for entertaining. There is an excellent flow of ground floor living which includes the substantial sitting room overlooking the attractive rear garden. To the side there is a bright and spacious garden/piano room which follows through to a dining room. To the front of the property there is a good sized kitchen/breakfast room. Situated at the other end of the house there is a large utility room (with access to the double length car port), and a south facing study. A cloakroom completes the ground floor. Upstairs there are three bedrooms, two of which are en suite, and a family bathroom.
Within the southern arm there is a vaulted self contained annexe. Accommodation includes an open plan bedroom/living/kitchen space and a bathroom. In our opinion this addition forms an ideal bed and breakfast opportunity, especially for the nearby Goodwood events, or space for au pair or relative.

There are established borders with a large variety of flowering shrubs and plants. Central to the garden is an expanse laid to lawn which leads to a secure and contained swimming pool area.

Immediately outside the rear of the house there is a large area laid to patio, ideal for summer entertaining, and an ornamental pond. Running along the length of the garden there is a secret pathway with mature shrubs and an arbor and, outside the annexe, a further garden store.
