Southover is a substantial country house located in a superb private, rural location at the end of a private lane and with stunning, far reaching rural views towards the South Downs. The property is believed to have been built in 1936 and has attractive elevations and spacious accommodation extending to about 4,607 sq. ft arranged over three floors, with well-proportioned rooms and good ceiling heights. The property has been extensively refurbished in recent years, is immaculately presented and includes many period features such as wood floors, open fireplaces, a superb fitted kitchen with 4 oven Aga, well fitted bathrooms and metal framed, sealed unit, double glazed windows. The approach is over a private lane which leads to a large gravel entrance drive which has extensive garaging to one side. The house is set well within delightful, mature gardens and grounds, with an adjoining paddock and has far reaching rural views over the adjoining farmland and on the South Downs in the distance. In all the property extends to about 4.12 acres.

In 2004 planning consent was granted to extend the house to create additional bedrooms (work which was carried out) and also to build an indoor swimming pool complex and hard tennis court, which were not built but for which consent still exists (Chichester District Council Ref: PW/04/00667/DOM). Further information, including plans, are available upon request.
