Full description

At the end of a small cul de sac in the sought after village of Eastergate you will find this truly exceptional four/five bedroom detached single storey residence nestled at the end of a long driveway surrounding by approximately half an acre of delightful mature garden.

This stunning home has been extensively improved by the present owners including refitting the kitchen/breakfast room and each of the three bathrooms, two of which are en suite. They have also added a conservatory dining area at the rear of the palatial sitting room and extended the patio to provide an extensive indoor/outdoor space for entertaining. On entering the property, you will immediately appreciate the spacious entrance hall which provides access to all principal rooms including double doors to the sitting room. The impressive kitchen/breakfast room is a fabulous space with French doors leading out to the enclosed rear garden.

The garden is extremely secluded and has various sections including a lightly wooded area at the front adjacent to the long tree lined driveway, which leads to garaging for three cars. The rear garden is more formal with a large patio and extensive lawn. Mature hedges and fruit trees provide an attractive boundary.



The village of Eastergate offers a range of facilities including, a village store and post office, restaurant and village pub as well as a doctor's surgery and a primary and secondary school. There are excellent transport links and the nearby village of Barnham, less than a mile away, has a mainline station with direct access to London Victoria.

Nearby there is horseracing at Fontwell Race Course and golf at Avisford Park. The cathedral city of Chichester offers excellent high street shopping, many fashionable restaurants, cafes and bars and the Festival Theatre. Goodwood is located to the north west and 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. 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.
