Full description

Situated in the idyllic waterside village of Bosham, this individual home is somewhat misleading from the front elevation. For behind the attractive double fronted facade lies a substantially extended four/five bedroom family home offering versatile accommodation over two floors.

The property was virtually doubled in size by the present owner in 1991, creating three additional ground floor rooms, including a central reception room with a vaulted ceiling and glazed bi folding doors to the sitting room. The combined rooms make an ideal space for entertaining. Above the central reception room is a galleried landing/walkway leading to the master bedroom which overlooks the rear garden and has the added benefit of an en-suite shower room. The ground floor also includes a dining room, kitchen/breakfast room, bedroom, bathroom and the two further rooms off the central reception room. Upstairs there are two further bedrooms and a cloakroom.

The elevated front garden is stocked with an abundance of plants and shrubs, and a private drive provides off road parking and leads to an attached garage. The mature rear garden has a partially covered patio, lawn and well established beds. There is also a gate out to the play park and primary school at the rear.



The house is situated in the popular sailing village of Bosham, famous for being the rumoured site from which the Danish King Canute unsuccessfully ordered the tide to stop. Today, Bosham is a thriving community with a primary school, village hall, farm shop, an arts and crafts centre, two local pubs and a hotel. Local attractions include the cathedral city of Chichester to the east, racing and golf at Goodwood and world class sailing into the Solent. Much of the surrounding area and countryside is designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. A foot and cycle path connects Bosham at Fishbourne to the Salterns Way which is a 12 mile path running from Chichester to Birdham, Itchenor and on to the Blue Flag beach of West Wittering. 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.

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.
