Full description

Set on a small private road and benefitting from a good size south facing plot, Cannon Cottage also has the benefit of planning permission (Ref:18/02871/DOM) in place to add a two story extension to the house to further enhance the accommodation.

The house, believed to have been built in the 1950's, is already a good size with two reception rooms, a kitchen / diner, utility / shower room, five bedrooms and a family bathroom. The sitting room has a log burner. The planning permission enables there to be a further reception room on the ground floor, connecting it to the kitchen / diner, and a master bedroom suite on the first floor with en suite and dressing room.

To the front of the house is a brick paved drive leading to the house, with parking for a number of cars. The generous rear garden is south facing with a raised area of decking and offers a good degree of privacy with mature trees and shrubs along the boundaries. There are also two useful sheds.



Nearby there is a selection of local shops and the canal tow path offering a picturesque walk into the city centre via the canal basin. 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.
