Full description

Situated on the periphery of the delightful Downland village of West Marden, this most impressive four bedroom detached home has uninterrupted countryside views from both the ground and first floors to three sides of the property.

Nurses Cottage was at one time owned by the NHS providing accommodation for the local nurses and midwives, hence the name. In 1997 the present owners substantially extended the property into a family sized home.

The light versatile accommodation is immaculately presented and includes a spacious entrance hall with stairs to the first floor. There are three reception rooms including a dual aspect sitting room with an inglenook fireplace hosting a wood burning stove. The contemporary kitchen has integrated appliances including two Neff ovens, a steam oven, induction hob, built-in microwave and dishwasher. A separate utility room has space and plumbing for a washing machine. Two bedrooms are on the ground floor, both with en-suite shower rooms. One of the shower rooms has a Jack and Jill door arrangement with a door off the hallway as well as the guest bedroom. On the first floor there are two further bedrooms and a bathroom.

The garden is another salient feature of the property which extends to 0.22 acre and has a wide frontage with a gravel driveway and a mature well border. The drive continues along the side of the property to a detached garage. Enveloped by a mature hedge the rear garden has a wide paved patio giving way to extensive lawn and borders. At the far end there is a greenhouse and shed.

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.
