Converted former dairy and cottage in Sidlesham Common

This superbly appointed and substantial semi-rural property is located within easy reach of Chichester Harbour.

Lockgate Cottage and Dairy, in Lockgate Road, Sidlesham Common, benefits from a range of well-presented and converted farm buildings, with fine southerly views over farmland.

Total accommodation for the property is 7,156sqft and there is also approved planning consent to form further accommodation and potential to create a boutique hotel business.

This collection of period buildings, currently arranged as a family home and successful bed and breakfast business, comprises a large detached Victorian cottage, with a subsequent ground floor extension.

Believed to have been constructed in the 1800s and with many period features, the main house is a lovely home with well-proportioned and extremely well-presented accommodation throughout.

The former dairy barn has been converted and sub-divided to form two self-contained holiday units, two further en-suite ancillary bedrooms, and a substantial unconverted barn unit which is currently used for storage and garaging but, subject to planning, could be converted to provide a variety of uses including a wedding venue, offices or swimming pool.

The site has the benefit of approved planning consent to expand the existing bed and breakfast business with a new dwelling over two floors which would include seven en-suite bedrooms.

Planning has also been approved for an extension to the Dairy which would replace the existing sun room and form a dining hall, kitchen, laundry room and a services room.

The property is situated within grounds amounting to approximately two thirds of an acre and is approached via a drive off the southern side of a semi-rural lane.

Lockgate Cottage and Dairy presents a unique opportunity to form a variety of uses, including the formation of a boutique hotel, or be maintained as a private residential property.

Guide Price £2,795,000.
