Full description

A truly exceptional three/four bedroom family home where traditional Victorian character and contemporary living come together in glorious harmony. This beautiful semi-detached Victorian house believed to date from 1870 has been lovingly and tastefully extended and updated by the present owners to create a very special home indeed.

On the ground floor, the original reception rooms each retain an open fireplace with an attractive surround, picture rails and high skirting boards, and are now open plan. The contemporary element of the property is the rear extension, providing a bright spacious dual aspect kitchen/family room with under floor heating, a roof lantern enabling natural light to flood into the room and bi-folding doors opening to the rear garden. There is also a separate utility room with a stable door to outside and a ground floor shower room/wc. Stairs from the traditional hall lead down to the lower ground floor study/bedroom four. On the first floor there are three bedrooms and a family bathroom.

Outside, the walled rear garden is attractively landscaped and has a brick paved patio, lawn and pretty borders. A log store and garden shed is positioned to one side and a timber cabin and further patio are at the far end.

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.
