Full description

This pretty flint and brick cottage, formerly a pair of cottages built in 1762, is set on a quiet no through lane in Funtington. The property is in need of complete renovation throughout but offers great scope, with a good size garden and room to extend. There is parking to one side of the property.

The property measures 1,448 sqft with an additional outbuilding to the side, housing the boiler. The house retains two staircases, with four rooms on each floor and one bathroom on the first floor. One half of the cottage is in very poor condition and could not be measured for the floor plan as the floor and stairs are dangerous.

PLEASE NOTE: No viewer should attempt to view the first floor of the left hand side of the property and care should be taken viewing the ground floor. All viewings are taken at your own risk.



The property is located along a narrow lane just a stones throw from the village church within this much requested village. Funtington offers a public house, restaurant, farm shop whilst 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. Goodwood is located to the east 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. There are excellent sailing facilities around Chichester Harbour and windsurfing from the beaches at West Wittering. The area is a paradise for wildlife enthusiasts, with beautiful walks and cycle tracks over the South Downs and around the harbour.

Pretty cottage requiring complete renovation, but offering great scope in a desirable location.

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.
