A rare opportunity to purchase to purchase a fine 4 bedroom detached family house standing in just over a quarter acre plot (0.26) in Chichester. Requiring a degree of modernisation, this individual home was built for the present family in the 1950s and was extended in the 1960s to provide an additional reception room/ bedroom and shower room. The extension has its own entrance and would make an ideal teenager suite, with the potential to extend into a full annexe, subject to the appropriate local authority consent.
The main house has an L shaped open plan lounge dining room with double doors opening to an orangery which was built in 2015 and is an attractive addition to the property, with recessed low voltage down lighters and French doors out to the beautiful southerly aspect rear garden. The kitchen is adjacent to the extension and has a useful storeroom off. On the first floor there are three further bedrooms and a bathroom. The garden is a particular feature of the property. To the front there is a large area laid to lawn with borders and a wide drive leading to a 236 long garage, opening to a timber built store at the rear. A side gate gives access to the delightful rear garden with extensive lawn, numerous trees and an arbour leading to a pond area at the far end.
Agents note: We understand that just the extension was underpinned in the 1980's.
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.

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.
