A stone’s throw from the coast, the elegant city of Chichester is rich in history, with central streets still following the Roman street plan, a beautiful Norman cathedral and leafy parks and gardens within its ancient flint walls.

Debbie Netley, from Charles Peck Estate Agents, Chichester said properties available in Chichester range from flats, houses and bungalows to large Georgian town houses.

Debbie said: “Prices range from £215,000 for a one-bedroom flat to a five-bedroom Georgian town house at £1,500,000.”

The city itself boasts amenities ranging from the Norman cathedral to a leisure centre with a swimming pool and gym and sports hall.

“There are hotels, shops, restaurants, bars, cinemas and the Festival Theatre, plus museums, a railway station with a direct line to Victoria London and a good range of schools, the college and university.”

Debbie said the city is the ‘ideal location’ for work, school and retirement and has a good mix of ages.

“A lot of elderly also like to retire to Chichester as it has so much to offer.

“Chichester itself has so much to offer, too – it’s nestled at the foot of the South Downs and surrounded by countryside, sandy beaches and quaint villages.

“There’s also easy access to a wide range of attractions – and it’s just five miles from Goodwood renowned for horse racing, the world-famous motor circuit and events.”

Charles Peck currently has two properties for sale overlooking ‘a great central location’ on Crane Street, a pretty and bustling side street which runs off North Street in the heart of Chichester.

Debbie said: “1a St Cyriacs is a beautifully renovated one-bed flat situated within the city walls in a quiet yet central location, all done up to a lovely standard and ready to move in.”

The second, 2b St Cyriacs, is a spacious, powder blue first and second floor maisonette with a well-proportioned lounge/dining room, two double bedrooms and a pretty balcony area.

Debbie said: “It is a bit of a project, but has great potential.”
