Full description

This very pretty detached house is located in a delightful semi-rural location in the hamlet of West Stoke. It is set to the north west of Chichester and at the foot of the South Downs. It is now offered for sale with vacant possession. The house is in good condition throughout and in particular has excellent living accommodation.

Upon entering the house there is a reception hall with an Inglenook fireplace. There are then two further large reception rooms, a ground floor bedroom with en suite and a cloakroom. To the rear of the house there is a generous kitchen / diner overlooking the garden and patio where light floods in from the windows and lantern roof light. The first floor has three double bedrooms, a small single bedroom, which could double up as a dressing room to the main bedroom, and a family bathroom. The private rear garden is mostly laid to lawn, with steps leading up to it from the patio area.

There is off road parking to the side, with a shared gravel drive leading to the double garage, which is set at the rear right hand side of the plot.



The property provides a wonderful opportunity to acquire a country residence within easy reach of Lavant, Goodwood, The South Downs including Kingley Vale National Nature Reserve and the city of Chichester. 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. Nearby Goodwood 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, around the harbour and Centurion Way.

A delightful home in a sought after semi rural 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.
