A charming, Grade II Listed terraced cottage in a sought-after location, a short distance from the City centre.

With its appealing frontage featuring sash-windows with red brick dressing and a classical entrance door with columns and pediment above, Number 5 Washington Street offers period charm blended with modern interior styling to provide a delightful home environment. With an outlook over the green haven of the rear garden, the reception areas are filled with natural light courtesy of a skylight aperture and windows either side of French doors which link the inside to the outside. The open-layout provides a sitting room centred around a wood-burning stove, with alcove cabinetry to either side of the chimney breast, and an adjoining, versatile-use family/dining area. Contemporary, pastel-toned units in the kitchen are complemented by the attractive tiled splashbacks and ancillary space is offered by a cellar which provides a home to domestic appliances and additional storage.

The first floor comprises two bedrooms, both with fitted wardrobe storage, and a modern family shower room, whilst a further bedroom is tucked-away on the second floor and enjoys rooftop views over the city. There is access into plenty of eaves storage from the top floor of the home.


A low brick wall topped with railings fronts the street, with a gate opening onto a paved front garden which features evergreen shrubs and hedging and steps leading up to the entrance. The rear courtyard garden offers an outdoor sanctuary with fragrant climbers and rambling greenery adorning the stone and brick walls, while a mature wisteria just beyond the French doors provides an attractive sheltered canopy. Low maintenance ground cover is provided by paving which extends to a decked platform at the far margin, offering opportunities for outdoor sitting and dining. A raised stone-edged border to one side contains shrubs and a brick-build shed provides a home for garden equipment


Washington Street is a sought-after Chichester address where the street-scene features pretty, period terraced houses which line the one-way street close to the centre of the city. There is a comprehensive range of shopping, cultural and leisure amenities on the doorstep, with the renowned Festival Theatre a mere 500 metres distant and St Richard’s Hospital (rated outstanding) less than a mile away. For sailing enthusiasts, Chichester Marina and Yacht Club and Birdham Pool Marina are easily accessible, with Goodwood’s golf course, small airfield, motor circuit and racecourse just to the north of the city. With access at the western end of Westgate, the Centurion Way foot and cycle path provides access northwards to the South Downs and southwards to the coast.


On foot: From Strutt & Parker’s Chichester office, turn left and on reaching the top of North Street, follow the left side of the gyratory roundabout, crossing Orchard Street and then bearing left onto St Paul’s Road. Washington Street is a short distance on the left and the property will be on the left side of the street.
