Newells House, Bosham, is an interesting and individual house set well within its own grounds. It is understood that the property has period origins and over the years has been the subject of a programme of extension and modernisation.

The accommodation offers particularly well proportioned living space and most of the rooms have a westerly aspect and are tastefully presented combining a contemporary comfortable ambience with a light and airy atmosphere throughout.

Worthy of mention is the excellent kitchen/dining room with modern units including appliances with polished granite work surfaces.

Further features of interest are the tall arched windows that add to the charm and character of the property. The principal bedroom has the most wonderful view from the balcony over the formal gardens. The property is ideal for entertaining with a great feeling of space enhanced by the excellent layout of the accommodation and spacious drawing room with fireplace.

There is a fascinating atrium lookout where one can spend time gazing at the surrounding countryside with views across the fields and beyond to Bosham’s Saxon church, the Creek and Chichester Harbour.

Newells House is approached through remote controlled tall wrought iron gates hung on painted brick pillars opening into an extensive gravel drive providing ample parking space for numerous vehicles and leading to a detached double garage.

A separate gated access leads to the boat shed, vegetable garden and orchard.

The frontage is exceptionally wide with particularly tall boundary hedges offering an excellent degree of screening and privacy.

A beautiful formal garden comprises a neat sweeping lawn with flowerbeds, shrubs, a variety of mature trees and a stream, all of which create an oasis of colour and tranquillity through the spring and summer months. The sun terrace overlooks the heated outdoor swimming pool and adjacent to the house there is an enclosed hard court tennis court. One of the main features of the grounds of the property is the large lake, with summerhouse, which is owned on a 999 year lease from the 8 September 1976 with a ground rent payable of £50/pa.

With separate vehicular access from Green Lane and located to the north of the grounds there is a paddock of approximately 1 acre. There are various outbuildings and the formal garden has a westerly aspect, to the right of which there is an area of enchanting light woodland.

Newells House is set in 5.3 acres of delightful private grounds in the hamlet of Cutmill, on the rural northern fringe of Bosham. The property is particularly well located being within easy reach of the local village shops and Bosham’s mainline rail station providing service into Chichester, along the South Coast and to London (Havant to Waterloo 80 mins).
