Full description

This Victorian house offers great scope for a future owner. Ripe for extending and with a large rear garden, it would make a superb family home on a quiet but central road in Chichester. It is now offered for sale with vacant possession. The property was last sold on the open market in 1910 and since then has been lived in by members of the same family. It still retains some period features including attractive tiled flooring in the entrance hall and the original front door bell.

The house has been extended heavily on the ground floor but the two original first floor double bedrooms remain. The ground floor has a kitchen / diner, two reception rooms, a bathroom, a large utility room and a shower room.

Outside is the former laundry room - a small detached outbuilding. The secluded garden is a real feature of the property. It features very well stocked flower beds, some fruit trees, and at the rear parking is accessed via a drive off Royal Close. The parking area could be enlarged to create more off-road parking and a turning circle.



Nearby is a local convenience store, public house and bus stop providing regular service to the cathedral city of Chichester offers excellent high street shopping, many fashionable restaurants, cafes and bars, the Festival Theatre and a mainline station to London Victoria. Goodwood is famous for its many event days including the world renowned Festival of Speed and Goodwood Revival for motor racing enthusiasts and a season of horse racing including the Qatar Goodwood Festival. There are superb sailing facilities around Chichester Harbour and windsurfing from the beaches at West Wittering. The area is a paradise for wildlife enthusiasts, with beautiful walks and cycle tracks over the South Downs and around the harbour.

Attractive Victorian house with a large garden and off road parking, offering enormous potential to extend.

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.
