Full description

An opportunity to purchase a piece of Chichester's rich and interesting history.

This charming flint and brick cottage sits on the ancient Roman city wall. Believed to have been extended in the 1950's the property underwent extensive yet sympathetic updating under the supervision of a local architect in 2000. It still retains much charm and character of a bygone age with a wealth of old beams. This is combined with the convenience of modern fittings like sealed unit double glazed windows and wall insulation. Gas fired underfloor heating throughout.

The accommodation is arranged on three floors with two ground floor reception rooms a modern kitchen and cloakroom. On the first floor there are two bedrooms, one with an en suite shower room, and a bathroom. The second floor has slightly limited ceiling height (5'10) where there is a bedroom and a study.

Outside there is a delightful walled courtyard garden with crazy paving and abundantly stocked borders.

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.
