Property of the Day: Little Oldwick Barn, West Lavant
THE PROPERTY: This former barn has been converted into a unique, light-filled family home with four bedrooms, four bathrooms and three reception-rooms.
THE LOCATION: Situated in the hamlet of West Lavant at the foot of Kingley Vale Nature Reserve, Little Oldwick Barn occupies a peaceful position amid the open countryside of the South Downs National Park, not far from the city of Chichester, which offers a mainline rail service to London. Goodwood, with its racecourse, golfing and classic-car shows, is in close proximity, while Chichester Harbour offers sailing and the South Downs provide multiple walking trails.
THE INTERIOR: Exposed brickwork and beams throughout the barn preserve its period feel, while the smart floor tiles on the ground floor encapsulate modern rusticity. Rooms have an open-plan feel: the kitchen and dining space are at the heart of the house, with French doors opening out onto the beautiful gardens, which span more than two acres.
WHY WE LOVE IT: There’s a charming shepherd’s hut with beautiful ceiling art that we could stare at for hours.
