Tenure: Freehold

The Firs is an impressive family home offering almost 2,400 sq. ft. of accommodation arranged over two storeys. The generous ground floor accommodation flows from the welcoming reception hall with wooden floor and feature staircase and comprises a double aspect reception room with fireplace and French doors to the rear gardens, a cloakroom and a wellproportioned front aspect room with feature bay window, currently configured as a ground floor bedroom but suitable for a variety of uses. The very spacious open plan kitchen/breakfast
room with dining and sitting area lies at the heart of the home, and incorporates an Aga, a range of fitted units with modern appliances, space for a sizeable breakfast/dining table and an informal sitting area with two sets of French doors to the rear terrace. An adjacent goodsized utility room also provides external access and a door to the integral garage.

The first floor offers a spacious double aspect master bedroom with in-built wardrobes and a
good-sized en suite bathroom. The remaining four bedrooms on the first floor, two to the rear aspect and two to the front, one with a feature bay window, are all well-proportioned with splendid views and are serviced by a family bathroom with a large walk-in shower.

Situated on the northern periphery of the city, The Firs is set in one of the area’s most desirable residential areas with a vibrant community, beautiful South Downs countryside on the doorstep and with day to day amenities including a local store, Post Office and doctors’ surgery. Chichester itself offers extensive leisure facilities and a great selection of retail outlets including high street chains and independent stores, together with the renowned Festival Theatre and a wealth of restaurants, cafés and bars. Transportation links are excellent, with train services into Portsmouth, Brighton and central London from the city’s mainline station, the nearby M27 running between Cadnam and Portsmouth and the A3(M) and connecting M3 giving easy access to
Southampton in the south and to Sunbury-on- Thames in Surrey, providing the main artery into
South West London, as well as giving access to major towns and cities along its route. In addition to the stunning local wildlife, visible from local walks and cycle tracks, the area offers a great selection of sporting facilities: horse and motor racing at Goodwood and golf courses are all within easy reach, as are excellent sailing facilities around Chichester Harbour and windsurfing from the beaches at West Wittering.

The area has a number of state primary and secondary schools including Jessie Younghusband Primary School (rated Outstanding by Ofsted), Lavant CofE Primary School and Bishop Luffa School (rated Outstanding by Ofsted), as well as a wide range of independent schools.

Set within a good-sized plot situated well back from the road, the residence is accessed along a gravelled driveway leading to the front aspect and garage, offering turning and parking space for multiple vehicles, with a low-maintenance front garden laid mainly to lawn, the whole bordered by a variety of mature shrubs and plants, lending privacy to the setting. The secluded rear gardens are laid mainly to level lawn with a wealth of mature shrubs and trees
and boast a large paved terrace with gazebo, ideal for entertaining.
