Full description

Standing in beautifully landscaped gardens extending to three quarters of an acre, Forest Lodge is a fine individually designed house of distinction and character. This impressive home offers well balanced accommodation and is centrally positioned in its south facing plot, with all principal rooms overlooking the rear garden.

The main house has a welcoming entrance hall with a shower room to one side. There is a sunny south and west aspect sitting room with a bay window and a fireplace housing a wood burning stove. An arch with glazed sliding doors takes you through to a spacious kitchen/family room with hand crafted bespoke kitchen units and solid oak worktops. A central work island incorporates a breakfast bar. On the first floor there are three well proportioned bedrooms and a family shower room. The principal bedroom has an en-suite shower room.

In recent years the property has been extended to create a self-contained air conditioned annexe with a vaulted ceiling and a galleried mezzanine level bedroom overlooking the reception room below. The annexe has a shower room and clever kitchenette cupboard incorporating a sink and shelving. The annexe is linked to the main house via a glazed hallway which leads to and inner hall, a cloakroom and a utility room.

Part of the original planning application under refence CC/14/03360/DOM was for a two storey extension to the front of the house which the present owners have not persued, but could be completed by a new owner desiring more accommodation.

The gardens are a particular feature of the property. Forest Lodge is approached by way of a sweeping circular in/out drive with a central roundabout abundantly stocked with mature shrubs and trees. The drive leads round to an open double car barn and lock up store. At the rear there is a large patio area giving way to beautiful herbaceous borders and extensive lawn. To one side there is further alfresco eating area with a pergola.

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.
