Full description

This former farm worker's house is now available with no forward chain. It has been extended already, creating well balanced accommodation, with plenty of scope to further enlarge (subject to the relevant planning permissions). There is a good size and private garden to the side and rear, with parking for up to three cars to the front.

On the ground floor there is a large main reception room, formerly two rooms, with an open fireplace. Stretching across the rear is a kitchen / breakfast room with French doors to the garden, and a large utility room. In addition, there is a study and a cloakroom. The first floor has two double bedrooms and a good size family bathroom. The top floor has a large bedroom with eaves storage and an en-suite shower room.

To the side of the house is a timber workshop and store. The property is on mains gas and water, with a cesspit for drainage.



In the nearby village of Runcton is The Walnut Tree public house/restaurant and a farm shop on the Lagness/Pagham road. In North Mundham is a popular primary school and church. The cathedral city of Chichester offers excellent high street shopping, many fashionable restaurants, cafes and bars, the renowned Festival Theatre and a mainline railway 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 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.
