Set in the heart of this sought-after village, this pretty detached Grade II listed cottage is presented in superb condition, having undergone a thorough renovation recently. The property benefits from surprisingly spacious ground floor living accommodation, with a modern extension to the rear, and a good size garden.

The list of improvements include re-roofing, replacement of all of the old windows, a new central heating system, total redecoration and a new kitchen and bathrooms. There is a welcoming entrance hall leading to the reception rooms. To the front of the house is a family room with a fireplace, a dining room with a log burner and the kitchen. To the rear of the property is a modern extension with a vaulted ceiling, log burner and access to the garden. There is also a utility room and WC. The first floor has a master bedroom with en suite shower room, two further bedrooms and a family bathroom.

The house has parking to the side in front of the single garage. To the rear there is a large patio and raised lawn, right behind the house, with a gate through the wall leading to the larger section of the garden, which is mostly laid to lawn with perimeter flower beds. It enjoys an open outlook to the rear.



West Ashling is located within the South Downs National Park and has an excellent pub and restaurant, primary school and a picturesque mill pond. The area is a paradise for wildlife enthusiasts, with beautiful walks and cycle tracks over the South Downs and around Chichester Harbour. Local amenities can be found in nearby Funtington and Bosham. The cathedral city of Chichester offers excellent high street shopping, many fashionable restaurants, cafes and bars, the 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.

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.
