Have you ever dreamed of that semi-rural hideaway, surrounded by fields and distanced from your neighbours ? Well perhaps this UNIQUE GRADE II LISTED CHAPEL CONVERSION might be for you. Reputed to date from the 14th Century, this flint faced building has a varied history including ownership under Tortington Priory and also Henry, Earl of Arundel, even utilised as a billet during the First World War for Canadian Bicycle Troops ! Purchased by the current owners some 22 years ago, the Chapel has undergone significant, but sympathetic modernisation, retaining many of the period features associated with a property of this lineage. Stone mullioned windows and exposed beams, combine with recently installed gas fired central heating, and polished beech flooring to create an atmosphere all of its own.
Set in grounds of approaching 1/3 of an acre, this property offers the relative peace and tranquility of a country lane location, yet within reach of local shops at nearby Yapton, and the centres of Chichester, Bognor Regis and Arundel with their more comprehensive facilities, including main line railway stations. For an opportunity to experience this individual property, contact May's for an appointment to view - after all you can't tell from looking at the pictures !
