Full description

Nestled in the heart of the South Downs National Park, this two bedroom terraced cottage has an abundance of character and charm. The rural position plays host to a wide selection of walks with a variety of cycle paths a short drive away. Conveniently located near to the village shop and local pub.

The front of the property has a beautiful cottage garden with soft planting and vivid colours. The front door opens into an inner porch allowing useful coat, shoe and welly storage. The lounge has a cosy feel with a working open fire place and leads through to the dining room.

The sunny kitchen is located at the rear of the property and looks out over the garden. A range of floor and wall hung units provide ample storage and a deceptive amount of preparation space. The current vendors have room for freestanding appliances with a built in cooker top and oven. Accessed just off the kitchen is a bright sun room which is the perfect spot to sit with a good book and a cup of tea. A downstairs bathroom completes the accommodation on this level.

Upstairs are two double bedrooms both with fitted wardrobes and wonderful views from the rear bedroom out towards the South Downs.

There is a beautiful south west facing rear garden and a useful store room.

There is on-street parking in School Lane.

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.
