Full description

This 1930's house is set on a popular and tree lined no through road in central Chichester and is offered for sale with no forward chain. The property does require a certain degree of modernisation but offers the potential for a new owner to put their own stamp on it and extend the house into the roof or to the rear, subject to the usual planning constraints. It also retains some of its original features.

The layout is typical of a 1930's house with two good size reception rooms, both with fireplaces, a kitchen and an outside WC. In addition a wet room has been created off the kitchen. Behind the kitchen is a covered store area leading to a garden store. The first floor has two generous double bedrooms, a single bedroom, a shower room and a WC.

The garden faces south west and offers a good degree of privacy. At the end of the garden is a single parking space. Parking in the road is restricted to residents only. The house has gas central heating and is mostly double glazed, other than the attractive front windows, that have secondary glazing.

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.
