Full description

Standing in a secluded garden enveloped by mature hedges, this bright airy detached family house enjoys a mature non-estate location with views across to the South Downs from the first floor.

The property was originally built in the early 1960's and has subsequently been extended on the ground floor. The accommodation of 1,735 sq ft includes: entrance hall, cloakroom, triple aspect sitting room with a large semi-circular bay window and living flame coal-effect gas fire, dining room, study, kitchen and utility room. On the first floor there are three bedrooms and a family bathroom.

The property is quite centrally positioned within its plot with attractively landscaped gardens on four sides. A long drive to one side leads to a detached double garage at the rear where there is also hard standing proving additional parking.



The village of Chidham is steeped in history. The present flint and rubble church dates from the 13th century and the Manor House, from the 17th century. The Old House at Home public house offers fine dining and a selection of real ales. There is also a primary school and excellent sailing facilities nearby at Cobnor, Bosham and Emsworth. 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. Goodwood is located to the north 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.

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.

If you’d like to buy, sell or let a property in Chichester, get in touch with your local team and discover the Henry Adams difference for yourself.
