Full description

This is an attractive two bedroom semi detached cottage offering plenty of scope for extension and improvement, subject to the necessary planning permissions. With far reaching views at the front stretching up to the South Downs and surrounding farmland, 2 Forge Cottage has a semi-rural feel whilst still being a short distance from Chichester.

There is a small porch upon entering the property which takes you directly into the sitting room, then leading off into the dining room. The hallway is currently set up as an informal kitchen where a small number of units are in place with access leading to a downstairs bathroom.

The first floor offers a spacious landing with south facing views, leading onto two double bedrooms.

The pretty south facing garden wraps around the cottage, with extending views across farmland behind. The garden is mainly laid to lawn with a separate store and shed. There is off road parking to the rear with single garage.



Within the village of Fishbourne there are playing fields which incorporate a bowling club, tennis courts, village club with bar, cricket pitch, croquet club, children's play area and pre school. There is also a primary school, two public houses, renowned Roman Palace, railway halt and bus links to outlying areas. Fishbourne Creek lies in the upper reaches of Chichester Harbour with its delightful walks and water sports. 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 north 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.

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.
