Full description

Set on a quiet no through lane on the northern fringe of Chichester in Summersdale, this 1950's detached chalet bungalow occupies a lovely plot and offers great scope to remodel and extend, subject to the usual planning constraints.

Fordwater Road has the feel of a country lane and turns into a footpath as you continue north, cutting through to East Lavant and giving access to a number of super walks. The plot, measuring approximately 1/5 acre, has a westerly aspect to the rear and pretty, mature gardens.

The property has a good size main reception room with a log burner, a dining room, large kitchen, two double bedrooms and a bathroom on the ground floor. The loft space is converted to create two useful rooms, access via a fixed open wooden staircase. There is ample parking to the front with access to a single garage down one side.

Note to buyers - the vendor is intending on buying a new build property and has reserved a plot.



Set in a popular and quiet 'No Through' lane located in Summersdale, to the north of Chichester city centre. The property is near to a local convenience store, doctors surgery and pharmacy and footpath leading up Goodwood. The cathedral city of Chichester offers excellent high street shopping, many fashionable restaurants, cafes and bars, the Festival Theatre and a mainline station to London Victoria. There are a number of schools in the area. 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 superb 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.

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.
