This detached five bedroom house is set in a mature plot, positioned on the edge of the highly desirable area of Summersdale. The property has been extended over the years and still offers great scope to adapt and extend further.

The accommodation consists of a modern entrance hall with a vaulted ceiling, full height glazed windows and a tiled floor which leads through to an inner hallway, a cloakroom and a study. The sitting room enjoys a triple aspect, an open fireplace and French doors opening out onto the rear terrace. The dining room links through to the kitchen/breakfast room, which is fitted with a range of units and large picture windows overlooking the rear gardens with further access to the rear terrace. A utility room links through to a covered walk way and provides rear access to the double garage.

To the first floor are five bedrooms, the master bedroom having a walk through dressing area and an en-suite shower room. The four remaining bedrooms share the family bathroom. Situation
Summersdale is one of the most select residential areas in Chichester, situated just to the north of the city. Local amenities include a One-Stop shop with Post Office situated on The Broadway, with the medical centre and the Co-op on Lavant Road. There is a regular bus service that runs from Summersdale to Chichester City Centre. Chichester offers a good range of shopping facilities and restaurants, all arranged mainly within the pedestrianized centre. There are various sporting and cultural amenities including the internationally renowned Festival Theatre, numerous golf courses, horse racing at both Goodwood and Fontwell, and sailing at Chichester Harbour. Walking North from the property, many footpaths and the Trundle lead to the nearby South Downs countryside.

The property is approached through a set of five bar gates onto a block paved driveway. A turning circle provides ample parking and access to the double garage, which has an electric roller door.

The front gardens are shielded from the lane by mature oak trees with a main lawn area, bordered by well stocked flower beds. There is side access to the rear garden, which enjoys a Westerly aspect with a terrace overlooking the main lawns. The garden stretches back with a number of well-established oak trees and borders. A second pergola arch leads through to a further area of garden with an easily managed vegetable patch.
