Full description

A delightful single-storey houseboat occupying an enviable position on the southern bank of the Chichester canal, accessible by a private footpath. The welded steel constructed hull was laid down in 1998 by renowned boat-builder Howard Phillipps and the remaining wooden infrastructure was completed by the end of that year. The houseboat was refurbished in 2021 and a new roof was fitted. Accommodation aboard Bridgewater comprises a light and spacious living space, with an open plan kitchen, a family bathroom, two double bedrooms and an en-suite shower room. The houseboat benefits from uPVC double glazing, a Chili Penguin log burner and stove, and low-profile Wi-Fi panel radiators. Outside, there is a low maintenance garden and storage shed.

Mooring in Chichester provides you with a unique combination of coast, countryside and city. There are miles of coastal paths to explore on foot or by bike. Chichester Marina is set within a beautiful natural harbour on the south coast of England, a hugely popular place for boat owners and visitors alike.

Premier Marina's secure facilities include well-maintained toilets, showers, laundry, CCTV, key fob-controlled access gates and parking. There is also a selection of boat services, a restaurant, and the Chichester Yacht Club on-site.

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.
