Full description

Set on a generous plot and backing onto farmland, this spacious detached home is beautifully presented throughout. Recent improvements include new flooring in most rooms, redecoration throughout, a new en suite and a new Mantair drainage system. The house has generously proportioned accommodation on the ground floor and has four double bedrooms. A recent planning permission has lapsed to extend the house over the ground floor to create a principal bedroom suite.

The ground floor has a covered entrance leading to a spacious porch. The large sitting room has a feature fireplace with a log burner. Leading off the sitting room is the dining room and a further reception room, currently used as a study. Both rooms have patio doors to the garden. In addition there is a large kitchen / breakfast room with a vaulted ceiling and Redfyre oven and hob. Off the kitchen is a utility room and cloakroom.

The first floor has a main bedroom with modern en suite shower room, three further bedrooms and a bathroom with a large freestanding bath and a shower cubicle.

The generous and private garden is mostly laid to lawn with two seating areas, both with pergolas, and one with a log burner. Sensor controlled gates to the front lead to the house with parking for a number of cars. The double garage, with a store to the side, has a useful loft space with fixed steps up to it.



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.

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.
