Full description

Originally believed to date from the Edwardian period, this fine looking three bedroom detached house is situated in a delightful elevated semi-rural setting with uninterrupted views overlooking paddocks and down to the coast in the distance. The property has subsequently been extended on the ground floor and offers excellent scope for further extension, if desired (subject to appropriate local authority consent). Bramley stands in a mature garden extending to approximately ¼ acre with a solar heated swimming pool at the rear. The traditional accommodation includes an extended sitting room and separate dining room, both with wood burning stoves. The kitchen is at rear of the house and leads through to a utility room and ground floor shower room. Upstairs there are three well proportioned bedrooms and a family bathroom. Outside, the front garden is enveloped by a low hedge and has an attractive meandering brick path from the drive to the front door. There is a gated drive to one side which leads to a wide hardstanding at the rear of the house where there is a double car port timber garage with the filtration equipment for the pool at the far end and an adjacent log store. The rear garden has a paved patio, extensive lawn and borders, At the far end there is a summer house with light and power.



Local amenities can be found in the nearby villages of Funtington, Southbourne and Bosham, with more extensive shopping in Emsworth and Chichester. Nutbourne railway station is at the south end of Broad Road. The cathedral city of Chichester offers excellent high street shopping, many fashionable restaurants, cafes and bars and the Festival Theatre. 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 Qatar Goodwood Festival. There are superb 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.
