Impressive townhouse with elegant interiors and superb views of the city


This impressive Georgian/Victorian townhouse of elegant proportions is at the very heart of Chichester, within yards of the cathedral and with some of the prettiest views in the city centre.

Situated on the southern side of West Street, the Victorian facade of this impressive townhouse belies its elegant and dramatic interior.

You cannot help but be impressed by the spacious reception hall with its chequered tiled floor and classic Gothic arched doors opening on to the garden room beyond.

A lantern light over the second floor landing ensures that the heart of the house and staircase are bathed in natural light.

There is a generous 20ft sitting room on the ground floor and the principal drawing room on the first floor has perhaps some of the best views in the city centre, looking across neighbouring Edes House, whilst the principal rooms to the south of the building look out towards the Bishops Palace and Cathedral.

Elegant reception rooms have high corniced ceilings, decorative plasterwork and cornices, large sash windows and impressive fireplaces.

The kitchen/dining room has been fitted in a range of hand-built units by Tim Jasper of Goodwood, with black granite worksurfaces and returns.

An extensive range of integrated appliances including 5-plate induction hob, double oven and grill, fully integrated dishwasher and an American-style fridge/freezer with ice maker.

Double doors from the dining area open directly on to the south-facing garden and the adjacent garden room is lit by way of its glazed roof and further double doors on to the walled garden.

The bedroom accommodation is generous, being arranged over two floors and includes both principal and guest suites with further family bedrooms and bathroom.

The sheltered south-facing walled garden is approached by casement doors from both dining room and garden room and has been skilfully landscaped with a line of handsome acacia trees and gently curved borders stocked with an interesting variety of easily maintained succulents and architectural plants.

A garden studio has been built to the southern boundary of the garden and is equipped with light and power, making an ideal space for those wishing to work from home or looking for additional recreation space which could include a gym or artists’ studio
