Full description

Oriel Lodge is a fine and imposing town house, set in the heart of the historical centre of Chichester. The house is next to Edes House in West Street and just a few yards from the cathedral. With planning permission in place for conversion into a single residential dwelling (Ref: 18/01188/FUL), it is now offered for sale in need of complete refurbishment, with vacant possession.

The house is Grade II listed and up until recently, the property has been used for a mix of retail and commercial space. However it does retain some original features and a feeling of grandeur from the moment you enter the property. You are greeted by a fabulous entrance hall with a sweeping staircase leading to the two top floors. Plans have been drawn up to create a generous family home, measuring 3,889 sqft and including 3 reception rooms, a kitchen / diner, 5 bedrooms, 3 en suites and 1 bathrooms. In addition there is a large cellar with decent headroom which could be converted into a useful space.

To the rear is a small garden looking towards County Hall.

Offers are invited in writing for the Freehold by Noon on Friday 3rd May.



A beautiful cathedral city with a great heritage, Chichester offers a wealth of historical landmarks, buildings and places of interest for you to discover, explore and enjoy. Set within its impressive Roman Wall the city's four main streets intersect at the Tudor Market Cross which is truly the heart of the city and where one can meet and enjoy wonderful examples of Georgian architecture. Why not stop for coffee inside North Street's Butter Market, designed by John Nash of Buckingham Palace. Well known as a cultural hub, Chichester has a 100 seater art-house cinema, the award-winning Chichester Festival Theatre, Pallant House Gallery - which holds one of the most important modern art collections outside of London, each summer the Festival of Chichester delivers a full and varied programme of music, theatre and literature talks. Chichester really comes alive when the nearby Goodwood Estate hosts an exciting flat racing calendar including the prestigious 'Qatar Goodwood Festival', as well as International motor racing events such as the 'Festival of Speed' and 'Goodwood Revival' both of which are popular with locals and visitors. The picturesque area of outstanding natural beauty that is Chichester Harbour is on the doorstep and is a popular hub for sailing and other water sports with its direct access to the Solent and events such as the world famous Cowes Week sailing Regatta on the Isle of Wight.

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.
