Full description

Tucked away towards the end of a no through lane and overlooking surrounding open farmland, this charming period property offers flexible and spacious accommodation, with a potential annexe. The house is beautifully presented throughout and has been well maintained and improved by the current owners. Many of the rooms and the garden benefit from a private and southerly aspect.

Upon entering the house there is a welcoming hallway with a log burner which leads to the snug and sitting room, both of which have working open fireplaces. The snug leads onto the heart of the house, a superb large open plan kitchen / diner with an AGA and French doors to the garden. To the rear of the house is a large utility room, boot room and access to the garage. Stairs lead to the two bedrooms, one of which is used as a study, and a shower room. The rear section of the house could easily be converted into a self contained annexe.

In the main part of the house there is a master bedroom with a stylish en suite bathroom with a claw bath, two further double bedrooms and a further shower room.

There is parking to the rear in front of the garage, with a path leading to the back door and garden. The house is double glazed throughout and has electric heating.

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.
