Elmstead is an attractive and very well-proportioned detached house, believed to date from the 1930s, set in grounds of approximately 0.895 acres which are a particular feature of this property. Located within easy reach of Chichester Marina, Birdham Pool, West Wittering and Chichester, this property would equally suit anyone looking for a family home or second home that is in a convenient location for the excellent local amenities.
On entering the house there is an entrance hall which has great character, retaining the wood panelling that is so typical of its era. To the left of the entrance hall there is a spacious dual aspect family room with an open fireplace and this room has been extended to also provide a dining area, with a picture window and door leading out to the rear garden. The second reception room is currently used as a sitting room but would equally be appropriate for a more formal dining space, featuring a bay window overlooking the picturesque front gardens. The kitchen/breakfast has space for a breakfast table in the centre of the room and currently includes a built-in range of cupboards and drawers across one wall. There are also floor units to the opposite side of the room with a picture window looking out over the rear garden. This room leads through to an extremely practical area of the house, which includes two pantry cupboards (one of which still retains a small exterior door, likely to have originally been used for delivering coal to the house), a cloakroom and a good size utility/boot room.
The wood panelling continues up the stairs to the first floor, which has a light and airy feel with a window providing natural light on to the stairs and landing. The principal bedroom has a bright dual aspect and includes an en suite bathroom with a modern white suite. There are three further, well-proportioned bedrooms, as well as a family bathroom which has a separate bath and shower.
