Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A beautifully appointed family house of character set in landscaped gardens in one of the most sought-after locations in Chichester.

Originally dating from the 1930s, 18 The Avenue has been skilfully extended and refurbished by the present owners to create a family house of exceptional style and comfort in this popular tree-lined avenue in Summersdale. The highly adaptable accommodation includes a spacious reception hall, four good reception rooms and a beautifully appointed kitchen/dining room with south-facing window bay having double doors opening directly on to the landscaped gardens. Planning consent has been granted to allow an extension of the kitchen/dining room, creating a garden/dining room with bi-folding doors on to the garden. The generous bedroom accommodation is arranged on the first floor, providing five bedrooms including three bedroom suites each with their own well-appointed bathroom or shower room, two further bedrooms and a family bathroom. All the bathrooms have been recently refurbished with the principal and family bathrooms being particularly well-appointed with underfloor heating, large walk-in open-sided shower cabinets and marble or polished granite surrounds.

The house is set well back from The Avenue, behind a large turning circle with plenty of parking. To the south, the beautiful landscaped gardens are a particular feature and include a terrace running the entire length of the house with outside lighting and exterior power points. An attractive painted summerhouse is the focus for summer entertaining with decorative low level lighting and views out over a river bed water feature. Borders are planted with a stunning array of architectural plants, succulents and trees of contrasting colours and shapes. Further pathways with garden lighting lead off at various angles designed to create a sense of space and perspective. Further landscaped sitting areas include a fire pit terrace, surrounded by low level ornamental hedging and, at the far end of the garden, a cleverly concealed yard provides secure storage for garden equipment, mowers, mountain bikes etc. In all, a beautifully designed family home within easy reach of Chichester city centre, local schools, Goodwood and the nearby countryside of the South Downs.

Tree-lined and conveniently located, The Avenue is perhaps the most popular road in this area of Summersdale which is always in demand due to its easy access to Chichester city centre, local schools and amenities. A convenience store is located in the nearby Broadway and there is a regular bus service into the centre of Chichester itself. Oaklands Park with Chichester Rugby Club is a short distance away as is the internationally known Festival Theatre which has just celebrated it's 50th anniversary and is enjoying great success sending many of it's productions to the West End and abroad. The pedestrianised city centre provides a wide range of both national brands and interesting local shops together with a good choice of bars, restaurants and cafes. Sporting facilities include a tennis club and the Westgate Sports Centre with its indoor swimming pool and Cannons Health Club. There is also a multiplex cinema. A mainline station provides regular rail services to London Victoria and to other nearby coastal towns. To the north lies the rich countryside of the South Downs National Park criss-crossed with many bridlepaths and footpaths ideal for horse riding, mountain biking and walking. Goodwood, already well known for its horse racing is also home to the Festival of Speed and the September Revival meeting at its historic motor circuit. The estate also provides a country club with tennis courts, indoor pool and gym together with a golf course and an airfield providing landing facilities for small private aircraft. To the south, Chichester Harbour provides some of the best sailing facilities within easy reach of London and there are a number of sailing clubs most notably at Itchenor, Bosham and Chichester Marina. The sandy beaches of East Head Nature Reserve at West Wittering are also extremely popular and provide facilities for windsurfing, land boarding and kite surfing.
