Full description

Formerly the bakery, Loafers is a pretty cottage in the heart of the village and only a short walk from the foreshore. The house was once two cottages and has a wealth of charm and character. Offered for sale with vacant possession, the property requires some updating, allowing a future owner to put their own stamp on it. The pretty and mature rear garden is a particular feature of the property, offering a good degree of privacy.

The front door leads into the main reception room, with a small Inglenook fireplace at one end of the room and a further closed fireplace at the other. In addition there is a further reception room, the kitchen and a ground floor shower room, which was previously the study. Steps from the kitchen lead down to a utility area and cloakroom, both with restricted head height. The first floor has a master bedroom with a good size en suite bathroom and a walk in wardrobe, two further bedrooms, a bathroom and a separate WC.

The double garage has been converted into a self contained one bedroom annexe. It includes an open plan reception area with a kitchenette and space for a bed, a separate bathroom and a conservatory. There is off road parking in front of the annexe. To the side of the annexe is a small stream that runs underground behind the house and joins up with the pond at The Millstream.



The ancient and picturesque village of Bosham is one of Britain's most popular sailing venues, situated towards the eastern end of Chichester Harbour, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty close to Chichester. There is an excellent sailing club which offers instruction for all ages and has an extensive programme of sailing and social events. There are two excellent pubs in the centre and The Millstream Hotel and Restaurant together with a small supermarket on the outskirts of the village. Bosham also has a train station. 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.

Charming cottage with an annexe in the heart of this desirable sailing village.

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.
