Full description

An exceptionally spacious and flexible house situated in a highly sought after village setting about two miles south east of Chichester city centre.

Designed around the south facing rear garden and sitting on a plot of approximately 1/3 of an acre, it offers tremendous space for entertaining with five bedrooms on the ground and first floor. There is a home office leading from the superb snooker/games room in which there is a full sized snooker table which will be included in the sale. The sitting room is open plan to the dining room and sun room which together make a superb main reception room. There are bi fold doors on two sides of the sun room opening to the south facing pool area of the garden which is totally secluded. The well appointed kitchen/breakfast room has a bright dual aspect overlooking the garden.

Upstairs, the principal bedroom has wall to wall fitted wardrobes and an ensuite shower room with a walk in shower. There are two further bedrooms, a dressing room, and a family bathroom.

The garden is very private, having mature hedges along the boundary, and a feature flint wall along the side of the swimming pool, which has its own boiler room and is heated by solar energy and a backup gas boiler. There are attractively landscaped formal areas of the garden and a large kitchen garden. A wide block paved driveway at the front leads to a large garage with electric roll up doors front and rear. There is also a separate fully insulated workshop.



The semi-rural village of Runcton is situated approximately two miles south east of Chichester. Within the village is the popular Walnut Tree public house and restaurant, plus a farm shop on the Lagness/Pagham road. In the nearby village of North Mundham there is a primary school and church. The cathedral city of Chichester offers excellent high street shopping, many fashionable restaurants, cafes and bars, the world class Festival Theatre and a mainline station to London Victoria. Goodwood is located to the north and 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. The area is a paradise for wildlife enthusiasts, with beautiful walks and cycle tracks over the South Downs. The house is situated with easy reach of the excellent sailing facilities around Chichester Harbour and The Witterings, which provide beaches for bathing, surfing and water sports.

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.
