Full description

Standing in mature gardens extending to approximately 0.61 acre, with uninterrupted views across the Bosham Channel from the first floor, this fine Edwardian detached house has to be viewed to be fully appreciated.

Since purchasing the property, approximately 20 years ago, the present owners have sympathetically updated the property and given it a stylish contemporary twist with the addition of a vaulted family room overlooking the garden. This impressive home offers light, spacious accommodation and includes a formal sitting room with a wood burner and classic kitchen/ breakfast room with granite worktops and a solid oak breakfast bar. There is a second sitting room/ snug which is open plan to the fabulous oak framed triple aspect family room. The family room has a vaulted ceiling and bi-folding doors on three sides, seamlessly blending the living accommodation and garden. It also has integrated underfloor heating and a biomass pellet burner in one corner. A cloakroom, large utility room and workshop complete the ground floor.

Upstairs, three of the four bedrooms have far reaching views across the water to Bosham, one being the principal bedroom which has an en-suite shower room. The large family bathroom has a free standing bath and a walk-in shower.

Outside the property is approached via a long gravel driveway leading to a double car barn and additional parking space at the rear of the house. The mature garden includes an alfresco eating area with a pizza oven next to a detached home office/studio with bi-folding doors, making an ideal area for entertaining.

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.
