A detached house of character, enjoying attractive well maintained private gardens, with off road parking and a detached garage. In addition the property offers some scope for extension, subject to planning.
A charming period property located to the East of the cathedral city of Chichester. The Gables is detached and has been updated over the years and thus features double glazed windows and gas fired central heating.
On the ground floor a fitted kitchen gives way to an inner lobby which could be utilized as a utility space. The impressive sitting room is double aspect, with a wood burning stove and a 'travertine' quarry tiled floor that provides a quality finish. A versatile downstairs reception room that could be configured as a substantial study, craft/hobby room or alternatively a guest room is served by an adjoining cloakroom providing independent washing facilities. To the first floor the good size master bedroom enjoys a double aspect and benefits from a shower room ensuite, while there are two further bedrooms and a family bathroom.
Outside, attractive well maintained gardens wrap around the house and there are a number of zones for sitting out and enjoying the outside space. Gates and a block paved driveway provide ample parking and access to a detached garage with light and power. It may be possible to extend the kitchen into an area of garden to the rear and we have outline drawings available to view upon request.
The property is located in Shopwhyke, a short distance from the centre of the historic Cathedral City of Chichester (approx 1.5 miles distant) offering a broad range of shopping, cultural and leisure facilities including the renowned Festival Theatre, galleries, museums and restaurants. The appeal of this location is not only its close distance to the city, but also the proximity to the South Downs National Park and Chichester Harbour and is ideally suited for easy access to the A27.
Aside from sailing, leisure facilities within the area include golf at Goodwood, bathing from the beaches off West Wittering and the National Trust owned East Head, horse riding, and walking around the harbour and South Downs. Horseracing may also be enjoyed at Goodwood where the annual Festival of Speed, and Revival meetings are also hosted. Rail links are provided from the mainline station with direct services to London (Victoria) and Gatwick Airport.
