Full description

Set in a rural location and benefitting from a fabulous outlook, the attractive semi detached Duchess cottage is now offered for sale with vacant possession. In addition to the house and garden, there is the potential to purchase a part of the three acre field to the front of the property, by separate negotiation.

The house has been part of a farm estate, and was formerly part of the Goodwood estate. It offers great scope for a future owner to put their own stamp on it. The accommodation includes two good size reception rooms, with chimney breasts in both, both currently blocked, a kitchen and a small wet room. The first floor has two double bedrooms and a large family bathroom.

There is ample parking to the front, with the garden wrapping round the side of the house and offering great views across open fields to the rear. Behind the house is a small brick and flint store. The house is single glazed and has air source heating.

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.
