About this property

TENURE: Freehold

Mulberry House occupies a prime postion within the centre of Slindon village. This former Georgian Rectory has the elegant proportions of the period with high ceilings, open fireplaces and three quarter height sash windows with working shutters.

The generous accommodation is in excess of 5,700 sq., including a handsome Reception Hall that runs the entire length of the house providing access to three wonderfully light Reception Rooms. The south facing Library opens into a beautiful conservatory with stone steps flanked by balustrades leading down to the lawns. The hand-built shaker style Kitchen has contrasting painted finishes with an attractive dresser and two oven gas fired AGA. In addition, there is a separate pantry, Utility and Study completing the ground floor.

To the first floor the Master Bedroom Suite with En-suite Shower Room and two double Bedrooms all enjoy views over the partially flint walled gardens and beyond to the coast. There are two further Bedrooms and two Bathrooms. Brick steps lead down to the lower ground floor, which were historically wine cellars and workrooms, but now provide a generous gym and workshop.

In the grounds of the main house, Mulberry Cottage is a pretty Georgian cottage with two

bedrooms (one located on each of the floors). There is a large sitting room, kitchen, store

room and a shower room. The large eaves storage on the first floor could be transformed into an additional bathroom or bedroom and the adjoining ground floor store into a dining room, subject to the necessary consents.

Situation
The property is one of a few privately owned houses located in the pretty village of Slindon. The village, being predominantly owned by the National Trust, lies between Chichester and Arundel within the beautiful South Downs National Park. It is in close proximity to Forestry Commission woodland and many attractive country walks and bridle paths. There is a parish church, a Roman Catholic church, a village hall, cricket club and a popular village shop with café, which is run by local residents.

The nearby villages of Barnham, Eastergate and Fontwell all provide a good selection of local shops and amenities, whilst Arundel, Chichester and Brighton are within easy travelling distance by car, each with very comprehensive shopping facilities, cafés, restaurants and cultural attractions. There is also a good choice of rail links to London and Gatwick airport from either Barnham, Arundel or Amberley.

Numerous sporting and recreational activities in the area include horse racing at Goodwood and Fontwell, polo at Cowdray Park, several golf courses, a private country club at Goodwood with modern gym and indoor swimming pool and sailing at Littlehampton and Chichester harbours. The South Downs National Park boasts beautiful countryside providing many outdoor pursuits such as walking, riding or mountain biking.
