Full description

Set in the heart of this desirable downland village, Watkins Cottage occupies an elevated position with distant views towards the coast from the first floor. Slindon is part owned by the National Trust and is one of the most sought-after villages in the area.

The house has recently been greatly improved by the owners and is well presented throughout. Improvements include a modern open plan kitchen / diner with a new, efficient, dual-control AGA, a total rewire and replumb and a new boiler. In addition the house has been redecorated inside and out and has had new carpets and flooring fitted all rooms. There is also a useful chalet / home office in the rear garden. Planning permission is in place to convert the loft to create a further bedroom and en suite.

The ground floor has a sitting room at the front, with an attractive bay window and a log burner, in addition there is a snug / study to the rear, a utility room and cloakroom. The stylish kitchen is the hub of the house with wood flooring, breakfast bar, pantry and a dresser.

The first floor has a main bedroom, with a French inspired en suite bathroom, two further bedrooms and a family bathroom.

The private garden enjoys an open outlook to the rear. There is a patio, log store and lawn with some raised beds. To the front is parking in front of the single garage.



Slindon is one of the most unspoilt and desirable villages in West Sussex, set within the South Downs National Park, with many of the original houses owned by the National Trust. The village has two churches, a cricket pitch, a primary school, a thriving shop and cafe, The Forge, and a popular pub and restaurant, The Spur. The surrounding area offers wonderful walks. Chichester and Arundel, with their many attractions, are both within 10 miles of the 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.
