Full description

A rare opportunity to purchase a most attractive three bedroom Edwardian semi detached house in the centre of Chichester with the additional benefit of secure off road gated parking and a detached garage.

This elegant home is within the Conservation Area to the south of the Cattle Market in Lyndhurst Road, just half a mile level walk from East Street shopping precinct, in the heart of the city. In 2009 planning permission was granted for a ground floor extension which has subsequently been completed by the present owner to create a fabulous kitchen/dining room with French doors out to the south facing rear garden. This room has a part vaulted ceiling hosting three Velux windows providing extensive natural light. An opening from the dining area takes you through the family room/snug where there is wood burning stove recessed in a simple yet most attractive fireplace. The formal sitting room has a feature open fireplace and a deep bay window fitted with plantation shutters. A modern bathroom completed the ground floor. Upstairs there are three bedrooms and a shower room. Bedroom one extends the full width of the property having two windows, both with fitted shutters.

The rear garden is another key feature of the home with a well-proportioned patio giving way to lawn and borders. At the far end the garage and secure hardstanding are both accessed via Ettrick Close.

Situation

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 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 superb sailing facilities around Chichester Harbour and water sports 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.
