A particularly handsome and spacious first floor apartment (approx. 718 sq ft) situated within a former rectory with the benefit of off street parking and being level walking distance to the city centre.
Presented to a high standard throughout, this stunning apartment, in our opinion, is ideal for those desiring to be in close proximity to the city centre and festival theatre, for those looking for a pied a terre, or a buy to let investment.
The property forms part of the former Grade II listed St. Pauls Rectory, converted some years ago to four apartments. Apartment 4 retains much of the original character with high ceilings throughout with ample natural light provided via tall sashed windows. Further features include ornate ceiling moldings, dado/picture rails, wide hardwood doors and a particularly attractive curved wall within the reception hall. Further accommodation includes a stunning west facing sitting room, with a feature fireplace, a good sized open plan kitchen/dining room, double bedroom with built in wardrobes and a modern bathroom.
St Paul's Gardens is approached via a crescent shaped gravel driveway where allocated and visitor parking is provided. To the side there is communal outdoor space and within the main building there is use of a communal cellar store.
This charming apartment is set back from St. Pauls Road and within level walking distance from the city walls. There is a useful convenience store situated just around the corner. The historic centre of Chichester alongside with all the extensive shopping facilities, popular bars and restaurants are nearby and particular features include the proximity to Oaklands Park and that the internationally renowned Festival Theatre is also within a few minutes walk. Other activities include nearby horse racing, motor racing, flying and golf on the Goodwood Estate, or sailing from Chichester Harbour.
Communications are excellent with a mainline station providing a regular service to London Victoria in about 1 hour 40 minutes, and Havant station provides a faster service to London Waterloo in about 1 hour 20 minutes. The A27 trunk road provides access to Worthing and Brighton to the east and Portsmouth, Havant and Southampton to the west. There are several choices of vehicle routes to London, but the closest is probably the A286 from Chichester via Midhurst, joining the A3 at Milford. The alternative is the A27 joining the A3 at Havant.
