This wonderful Georgian country property sits near the coast and Chichester, and offers substantial family accommodation and beautiful gardens.

The Grange is an exceptional Grade II listed country house seven miles from Chichester in West Sussex, and just half a mile from the sea. The house itself is built of stone with a 6-bay façade and is predominantly Georgian in character, but with origins in the 14th century and an interesting history.

Inside are features including elegant sash windows with window seats and working shutters, stone-flagged floors and impressive fireplaces – the reception hall, for instance, has a welcoming inglenook fireplace, while a notable addition to the property comes in the form of an orangery.

The kitchen/breakfast room lies on the south side of the house and communicates well with the dining room and a small home office. The family sitting room makes a wonderful comfortable space for some peace and quiet while bedrooms are split are over two floors and include the principal suite and two guest suites; the second floor also has a playroom and home cinema.

Outside the walled gardens lie to the south and are approached from the orangery. To the south west lies a pretty brick and flint thatched summer house with vaulted ceiling. A beautifully planted arboretum runs behind the walled gardens, the centerpiece of which is a 300 yard long avenue lined by poplars and evergreen oaks, leading to two circular glades. There are also paddocks; the land comes to around 6.5 acres.

The Grange is located in Church Norton, an attractive hamlet on the western edge of the Pagham Harbour Nature Reserve. Selsey provides local shops and facilities, while the cathedral city of Chichester is just seven miles and the coastline is within easy reach.
