Full description

Richmond House is a beautifully presented and substantial 2,217 sqft semi detached house. It offers flexible accommodation across four floors, having once been used as a Bed & Breakfast. It has the additional benefit of off road parking for two cars.

The house is full of character, evident from the moment you enter. The raised ground floor level has a sitting room with a log burner and a good size kitchen / diner with an open fireplace. The first floor houses three double bedrooms, all with en suite facilities, the largest of which has a claw bath and shower cubicle and can be used as a Jack and Jill bathroom. The second floor has a further bedroom and bathroom, although it should be noted there is restricted head height on the staircase.

The lower ground floor houses another potential double bedroom and bathroom and a good size study or play room. All of the windows are double glazed, with many of them being replacement sash windows.

To the rear is a private and south facing courtyard garden, ideal for entertaining. It is partly enclosed by a high wall and leads round the property to the parking area.



The cathedral city of Chichester offers excellent high street shopping, many fashionable restaurants, cafes and bars, Festival Theatre and a mainline station to London Victoria. Goodwood is famous for its many event days including the world renowned Festival of Speed and Goodwood Revival for motor racing enthusiasts and a season of horse racing including the Qatar Goodwood Festival. There are excellent sailing facilities around Chichester Harbour and windsurfing from the beaches at West Wittering. The area is a paradise for wildlife enthusiasts, with beautiful walks and cycle tracks over the South Downs and around the harbour.

Why live in Chichester?

We consider ourselves very lucky to be working in a city that blends so many different architectural styles, from elegant Georgian buildings to contemporary new apartments and waterside properties that overlook the harbour.

In 2013, The Sunday Times listed Chichester as one of the top places to live in the UK with ‘something for everyone’ – and they weren’t wrong. Chichester is a cathedral city, a county town and home to some of the oldest churches and buildings in the country. There are many well-regarded public and state schools in the local area with further and higher education options available from Chichester College, West Dean College and the University of Chichester. Our great schools have always made Chichester very appealing for those looking for the perfect place to raise a family.

Our city centre is a shopper’s paradise and there are great places to eat and drink, from elegant restaurants to cosy cafés and pubs, all set along the city’s four main streets. Chichester Cathedral on West Street dominates the skyline and, on summer afternoons, its grounds are filled with local people enjoying picnics. In the evenings, the Cathedral plays a central part in the city’s nightlife by hosting classical music events.

Chichester has a number of public parks, the Chichester Tennis and Racquets Fitness Club and Westgate Leisure Centre, where you’ll find a large swimming pool and skate park and, if sailing is your thing, Chichester Harbour is a haven for you. There really is so much to do here you’ll be spoilt for choice; spend the day on one of the many local beaches, stretch your legs on the stunning South Downs or catch a show at the Festival Theatre before it moves to a permanent home in London’s West End.

If you’d like to buy, sell or let a property in Chichester, get in touch with your local team and discover the Henry Adams difference for yourself.
