Full description

Elm Cottage is a prominent and attractive Grade II listed house in the heart of the desirable village of Boxgrove. Built in 1742, with later additions, the house has been in the same family for many years but is now offered for sale with vacant possession and requires modernisation.

The house retains much of its period charm with some original features and exposed beams. The generous west facing rear garden is a particular feature of the property.

The ground floor includes a small porch leading to a dining hall, with stairs leading to the first floor, a large main reception room with an open fireplace and a door to the garden, a study, a garden room/breakfast room and a kitchen. In addition there is a WC, a utility room, pantry and store. The first floor has a large bedroom with an en suite shower room, two further bedrooms and a bathroom.

To the side is a large single garage with parking in front of the house and garage. The pretty garden is mostly laid to lawn, with perimeter flower beds and a patio, and is part enclosed by an old wall.



Within the village there is a village hall, shop and primary school. There is a Co-op mini supermarket in Tangmere. Goodwood is close by and is famous for its many event days including the world renowned Festival of Speed and Goodwood Revival for motor racing enthusiasts, horse racing and two great golf courses. Chichester offers excellent high street shopping, many fashionable restaurants, cafes and bars, festival theatre and a mainline station to London Victoria. 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.
