Full description

A versatile semi detached chalet style house standing in a deceptively large L shaped garden on the edge of Fishbourne village.

Requiring a degree of modernisation, the property has been extended at the rear to create a family room, which is open plan to the main sitting room and overlooks the rear garden. A study doubles up as an occasional bedroom three. There is also a first floor extension comprising the master bedroom and an en suite bathroom with a step in bath. The remaining accommodation comprises and covered porch area, entrance hall, kitchen, bedroom and a shower room.

The front garden is enveloped by mature shrubs and hedges and is partially laid to lawn with a patio to one side. At the rear, the garden is in two sections in an L shape. The first section is a formal garden with lawn and borders. At the end there is a precast sectional double garage at right angles to the formal garden with twin up and over doors facing a long driveway accessed via Halfrey Road. This area provides ample space for additional parking and/or for a campervan, caravan or boat.

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.
