Full description

This charming cottage is coming to the market for the first time and is in need of modernisation. Located within a conservation area in Halnaker at the foot of the South Downs, the cottage overlooks the Tinwood Vineyard to the front. It benefits from a large garden measuring approximately 140ft in length.

The house, which measures 602 sqft, comprises of a kitchen and a sitting room with an open fireplace. The first floor has two bedrooms and a bathroom. It should be noted that the property has a flying freehold on the first floor. To the rear is a useful outbuilding, measuring 14'6 x 7'7 which could be converted into a more useable space.

There is a small garden to the front and side, with a further large garden to the rear, behind the outbuilding. Two of the neighbouring properties have a right of access across the pathway to the rear of the property and down the side to put their bins out. They both access their houses through the front doors. The neighbouring property has a right of access to the rear to their garden.



Halnaker is a rural hamlet some four miles north east of Chichester. There is a village shop in neighbouring Boxgrove, whilst the cathedral city of Chichester offers excellent high street shopping, many fashionable restaurants, cafes and bars, the Festival Theatre and a mainline station to London Victoria. Nearby 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.
