Full description

A truly exceptional four/five bedroom end terraced family house situated at the end of a small cul-de-sac in the South Downs National Park village of Mid Lavant, about three miles north of Chichester.

This beautiful home has been substantially extended and now offers extremely versatile accommodation including the potential for an annexe. The principal living space is now fully open plan and comprises a comprehensively appointed contemporary kitchen with twin Neff ovens, an induction hob and hood, dishwasher and space and plumbing for an American style fridge. An integrated breakfast bar informally subdivides the kitchen from the dining area where there are bi-folding doors to the rear garden. There is also a wood burner to one side of the dining area adjacent to the open plan sitting which also has bi-folding doors to the garden. In addition to the main living space there is a study with an en-suite shower room. A door from the study opens to the side access which enclosed at the front and open to the garden at the rear. This could easily be enclosed if desired to fully integrate the main house with the garage which has been converted into a teenagers' annexe with French doors to the rear garden and paddle stairs to a mezzanine level. On the first floor of the main house there are four bedrooms and a bathroom.

The wide front garden is mainly laid to lawn with a gravelled drive to one side providing off road parking. At the rear the garden is attractively landscaped with a stylish patio, AstroTurf style lawn and raised beds.

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.
