Living large in Arundel.

Dominated by a Gothic cathedral and Arundel Castle, the seat of the Dukes of Norfolk, the pretty West Sussex town of Arundel prides itself on being ‘quirky, fun and cosmopolitan’, widely known for its art galleries, antique shops and some of the best pubs and restaurants in the region. In the 18th century, elegant Georgian Maltravers Street, which overlooks the town and the picturesque Arun Valley, was firmly established as Arundel’s best residential street, home to the town’s prosperous professional classes and civic dignitaries.

The Chichester office of Strutt & Parker (01243 832 600) is handling the sale of handsome, Grade II-listed Carleton House on the favoured south side of Maltravers Street. one of Arundel’s largest houses, it is thought to have been built in 1792 for the steward of the Duke of Norfolk’s estate. The music room was probably added during the 1820s.

The house has four reception rooms, a kitchen/breakfast room, a gym and steam room, a master suite, six further bedrooms and three bathrooms and is being offered, either as a whole, to include the three-bedroom converted coach house, at a guide price of £2.695m, or on its own at a guide price of £2m, with the coach house available separately at £695,000, once the main house has been sold.

The guide price is £2.696 million. For further information please contact Strutt & Parker on 01243 832 600.
