Full description

This 1930's house is set just outside the city walls on a pleasant residential no through road. It offers great scope for a new owner, having not been updated or altered much from its original design. The house is offered for sale with no forward chain and does require a complete programme of modernisation.

The layout is typical of 1930's houses with a welcoming entrance hall, a large reception room at the front with a bay window, a further reception room and a kitchen / breakfast room to the rear. The first floor has two double bedrooms, a single bedroom and a bathroom. The loft space has been partly converted with a wooden staircase leading up to it.

To the front there is parking and access to the long single garage. The rear garden is south west facing and offers a good degree of privacy. Pleasant views to the rear are across the primary school playing fields towards a church.



Laburnham Grove is a select cul-de-sac location just outside the city walls on the south eastern side of the city centre. 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.

1930's detached house with a south west facing garden, requiring complete modernisation.

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.
