Full description

Set on arguably one of the most desirable roads in the area, only a stone's throw from the water, this large home offers a rare opportunity to buy in Bosham. The house is very well maintained throughout and offers spacious and flexible accommodation, with an additional garden lodge at the end of the garden.

The house has a welcoming entrance hall, three well proportioned reception rooms, one with a log burner, and a study. To the rear is a large kitchen / breakfast room, with a Sylvarna fitted kitchen and a comprehensive range of predominantly NEFF integrated appliances. The kitchen and two of the reception rooms have direct access to the garden. In addition there is a utility room with access to the integral garage and boot room. The first floor has four double bedrooms, the principal bedroom benefitting from an en suite and a walk in wardrobe.

The garden lodge is a recent addition, providing a flexible space with an entrance hall, two rooms, a kitchenette and a cloakroom. It has been used as a home office and hobbies room, but could also provide ancillary accommodation to the main house.

The attractive and well stocked gardens are a real feature of the property, with a number of seating areas and interesting features. External stairs lead to a roof terrace, providing a very private spot to sunbathe and enjoy the sunset. In addition there is additional storage space with a range of rooms, a greenhouse and a garden store.

Smugglers Lane is less than two miles to the south of the desirable sailing village of Bosham. The highly regarded harbour village of Bosham, has a primary school, two public houses, the popular Millstream hotel/restaurant, tearooms, arts and crafts centre and a large local farm shop with a post office and medical centre, all in close proximity. Historically Chichester Harbour has provided a safe anchorage and is now a wonderful centre for sailing with a multitude of moorings for boats and yachts, as well as several long established and thriving sailing clubs and marinas. In addition to the facilities at Bosham, there are good yachting facilities at Chichester Marina, Birdham Pool, Dell Quay and at Itchenor. Much of the surrounding area and countryside is designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. A foot and cycle path connects Bosham at Fishbourne to the Salterns Way which is a 12 mile path running from Chichester to Birdham, Itchenor and on the Blue Flag beach of West Wittering. 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, located to the north, 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.

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.
