First time on the market and offering the kind of view you probably dream about – but this 1960s Pict Fenn house in Birdham, Chichester, West Sussex comes at a price.
Pict Fenn is a modernist-inspired property, built at an unspecified date in the ’60s and by an unknown (or at least, an unlisted) architect. But it obviously is an architect-designed house, still packed with period features, as well as being spacious and in a location that’s perhaps as much of a selling point as the house.
That secluded location is at the end of a private lane that’s adjacent to Birdham Pool, with views over the main channel of Chichester Harbour and towards the South Downs, with Chichester Marina just a stone’s throw away. See the listing for more on this.
As for the house, well, that’s very distinctive and considerable. For your money you get a reception hall, study, dining room, kitchen / breakfast room, sitting room, utility room, four bedrooms, two bathrooms (one en-suite) and a first floor drawing room with those harbour views. On top of that there’s ample parking and gardens, a double garage with covered walkway to the house, timber-bullt stable buildings and an open-fronted boat store.
It’s a shame the agent is pitching the location more the house, would love to see more of the actual property. Not that we can ever hope to afford it – offers of around £2,750,000 are being asked for.
