Full description

A substantially extended detached house situated in a small cul de sac on a popular development on the north side of the city.

Requiring modernisation and improvement, this impressive house has six bedrooms and the potential to create a first floor annexe. At some time in the past the property has been extended over the garage to create two large double bedrooms, one with an adjacent bathroom and one with an en-suite utility room which lends itself to being altered into an en suite shower room, subject to building regulation consent.

On the ground floor the area between the house and the garage has been incorporated into the main property to create a utility room and an internal door into the garage which has a workshop area at the rear. The ground floor accommodation includes a cloakroom, a bright twin aspect sitting room with glazed double doors to a dining room, and a kitchen.

Outside, the front garden is open plan with a wide drive leading to a double garage with twin up and over doors. The enclosed rear garden has a patio with a pergola, lawn and borders.



Set in a popular and quiet location in Summersdale, to the north of Chichester city centre the property is near to a local convenience store, doctors surgery and pharmacy and a footpath leading up Goodwood. 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. There are a number of schools in the area. 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 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.

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.
