“Funtington is ideally placed, with trains stopping at four nearby stations and the A27 accessible at Warblington and Chichester,” says Anne-Marie Green, of Fine and Country Emsworth.

“Yet look the other way and in the blink of an eye you can be heading off into Kingsley Vale and the South Downs National Park, walking to Winchester or Eastbourne along a network of paths and byways.”

What helps make The Glebe such an impressive village home is that, like vicarages of old, it presents an impressive façade with its central pediment above the pillared portico sheltering the front door matched by twin dormers serving the second-floor rooms.

What the vicarage of old lacked is the second-floor media room at The Glebe which brings surround sound with its Bose system serving the wall-mounted television.

Back at ground level, the house has sitting and garden rooms, a study, kitchen/ dining room, and conservatory with the full height vaulted central entrance hall and its twin galleries providing an interesting entrée – a taste of what’s to come.

Spread across the two upper floors are five bedrooms, two en-suite and the others served by two family bathrooms.

The front gardens are planted with numerous shrubs and a varied and interesting selection of trees – impressive cork oak, yew, black poplar, Scots pine, sycamore, and beech among them. There is a large lawn, while the driveway provides more than ample parking to augment the double garage.

The rear gardens are primarily lawn with separate seating areas, accessible from the conservatory, sitting, dining, and garden rooms.

The patios provide a continuous walk-through from one end to the other but are individually designed and surrounded by open-weave fencing and climbing plants. External lighting allows extended evening enjoyment of the garden and summer house.
