Full description

Set in the heart of Chichester, this spacious home is an ideal city centre pied a terre or home, benefitting from a small south facing garden and allocated parking and a car port. The house has two very large double bedrooms and is comparable or larger than many three bedroom properties. The ground floor has a big kitchen/diner to the front and a similarly impressive reception room to the rear. The property also benefits from the proportions of a period property, with high ceilings and large sash windows.

In addition to the accommodation above there is a small porch to the front and a lobby to the rear, leading to the garden. The ground floor also has a clever utility area housing the washing machine and tumble dryer, under the stairs and leading to the W.C. The stylish bathroom has twin sinks and a 'P' bath with a shower over.

The house has modern secondary glazing fitted throughout and benefits from gas central heating.

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.
