First impressions can be deceptive. At first glance you could be forgiven for thinking that this fine town house in the heart of the city is from a bygone period, with its elegant Georgian façade. However, it is in fact the creation of local architect, the late Joy Crawshaw who designed the property in the 1970's.
This inspired home does not disappoint once inside either, with its curved staircases and fabulous view of Chichester Cathedral spire, which just improves with each storey. In recent years, the present owner has further enhanced the property with the addition a first floor west facing sun terrace providing outside space on the first floor to complement the existing third floor terrace. There is also a delightful walled courtyard garden with electric double gates providing vehicular access to secure off-road parking and an open fronted garage. The ground floor lends itself to being an ideal annexe as there is a double bedroom and a shower room/utility room, plus potential to incorporate the integral store and car port, subject to local authority consent.
The open plan living accommodation is on the first floor comprising two large reception areas with a door to the contemporary white kitchen with integrated appliances. There are three bedrooms and two bathrooms on the second floor, the master bedroom having an en suite and a cleverly designed dressing room/walk in wardrobe. Although not formally living accommodation there is a studio on the third floor with double doors to the upper terrace.
North Pallant links into one of the four main shopping streets in Chichester, which is predominantly pedestrianized and surrounded by streets with Georgian architecture. The city of Chichester provides a comprehensive selection of shops, with many of the major multiple retailers being represented, as well as high quality independent traders and a number of public houses, wine bars and bistros. There is the internationally acclaimed Festival Theatre, Priory Park with its historic cricket ground and Pallant House Gallery are just a few examples of the nearby facilities of this thriving city. The mainline station provides a regular service 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 windsurfing from the beaches at West Wittering.

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.
