Full description

Warren Cottage is a unique detached property, formerly the dairyman's cottage, and converted in the 1930's into a residential dwelling. The property is all on one level and now is in need of modernisation and remodelling. It offers great scope to put your own stamp on a property.

It is tucked away, next to The Old Dairy, leading off Plainwood Close in Summersdale and close to the Centurion Way. The accommodation amounts to 2,066 sqft, including a detached 1 1/2 garage with a part converted loft space and a lean-to outbuilding attached. There is ample parking to the front.

The current accommodation includes two reception rooms, three bedrooms, two bathrooms and a conservatory. The property is on main gas and water and has a cesspit for drainage.

It should be noted that the land to the south and west of the property has had planning permission granted in the past for housing. It is highly likely that the land will be developed at some stage in the future but we do not know of any specific timescales.



Nearby there is a convenience store, doctors' surgery with pharmacy and there is a bus service every 30 minutes into Chichester. The cathedral city of Chichester offers excellent high street shopping, many fashionable restaurants, cafes and bars, Festival Theatre and a mainline station 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 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.
