Full description

A delightful three bedroom period cottage nestled in the heart of Boxgrove village, about four miles west of Chichester, close to the edge of Goodwood and the glorious South Downs National Park.

This charming individual home offers versatile accommodation and is currently arranged as a principal house and self-contained annexe. However, the layout, which includes a mezzanine level landing equally lends itself to being a single lovely family home. The floor plan shows the current arrangement as two units, but as one house it would include a bright sitting room with a large bay window and Morso wood burner, utility room and a spacious garden room overlooking the rear garden. The modern kitchen/dining room is a light airy space with a vaulted ceiling and is open plan to a family room area. There is also a ground floor shower room. Upstairs there are two bedrooms, a shower room and bathroom on the first floor and a further bedroom with limited head height on the second floor.

Outside there is an attractive enclosed front garden and a cottage style rear garden with decking, a small lawn, and well stocked borders. A vehicular access at the side of the village grocery shop next door leads parking at the rear.



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.

If you’d like to buy, sell or let a property in Chichester, get in touch with your local team and discover the Henry Adams difference for yourself.
