7 bedrooms; 5,760 sq ft; £3m via Inigo
Surrounded by a moat and postcard-worthy gardens, the grand Grade II-listed Hunston Manor in Chichester, West Sussex, is a completely revived country home from the Restoration era. A house has been on the site since the Saxon times,  though the current home dates from around the 1680s with many of its features a patchwork of subsequent centuries. Oak floors, exposed beams, original woodwork and soothing colours enliven the historic space.Take an armchair tour.
