Full description

A beautiful example of an elegantly restored and extended family home, offering flexible accommodation with a country chic style. The current vendors have retained and restored an abundance of period features including re-claimed fireplaces and stripped wooden floorboards, blended seamlessly with the modern additions of underfloor heating and new sash windows.

Upon entering the property you find yourself in the second reception room currently being used as a dining room/play room. The stylish sitting room is located at the front of the property with large sash windows and feature wood burner. The rear of the property has undergone a striking transformation creating a wonderful open plan kitchen/breakfast room, perfect for entertaining and time together as a family. The kitchen offers ample work preparation space with a range of wall and floor units with integrated appliances. The sunny breakfast room showcases a vaulted ceiling with large bi-fold doors and windows above with bespoke plantation style shutters allowing light to flood into the room. The extension also includes a good sized utility/boot room, which has separate access to the front drive, with a beautifully appointed downstairs shower room/WC.

On the first floor are two well proportioned double bedrooms, both with character fireplaces. The spacious family bathroom benefits from a walk in shower cubicle and separate bath. The sympathetically designed staircase leads up to the second floor and the charming third bedroom. The room has two large Velux windows and storage into the eaves.

The front door is located to the side of the property accessed via a long gravel drive. Outside the south/westerly facing rear garden is mainly laid to lawn with two raised beds. Side access from the dining/play room has space for a useful shed and extra storage. A decked area opening out from the bi-fold doors leads to a patio area and provides a tranquil environment to sit and relax.

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.
