Full description

This spacious first floor apartment is offered for sale with vacant possession. It forms part of a small development of purpose built apartments on the northern fringe of Chichester, within the highly desirable area of Summersdale.

The property has two good size reception rooms, both with access to the covered balcony. The property benefits from a pleasant outlook. The kitchen has a range of integrated appliances including a dishwasher, washing machine, oven / grill and a hob, with space for a fridge freezer. In addition there are two double bedrooms and a good size bathroom with a mains shower over the bath.

There is resident's parking to the front and a garage in a communal block. The development is surrounded by well tended communal gardens.

Previously rented out for £995 per month, before new carpets and redecoration. This gives a gross yield of 4.6%.

Each flat owns a share of the freehold.

Service charge: £1,666 per annum, paid quarterly.

Lease details: 125 years from 25th March 1999.

NOTE: At the present time there is the possibility of residential development to the rear of the site which is dependent upon the residents agreement and is subject to planning consent. In the event that this is forthcoming there would be a considerable ‘windfall' to the residents of the development.



Nearby there is a convenience store, doctors' surgery with pharmacy and there is a bus service every 30 minutes into Chichester. 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 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. There are excellent sailing facilities around Chichester Harbour and windsurfing from the beaches at West Wittering. The area is a paradise for wildlife enthusiasts, with beautiful walks and cycle tracks over the South Downs and around the harbour.

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.
