3 Cawley Road offers a rare opportunity to acquire a centrally located, detached property in Chichester with the flexibility to offer both residential and commercial possibilities (subject to planning consent). The house occupies a plot with a south-westerly aspect to the rear with generous off-road parking and wide side access.
Understood to date from around 1890, this Victorian house has been extended to the rear to provide additional accommodation, yet it retains period features such as sash windows to the front elevation, open fireplaces (not tested), cornicing, architraves and high skirting boards to some rooms.
On entering the house, the hallway provides access to the sitting room, with a bay window overlooking the front of the property. The kitchen is well-proportioned with patio doors opening to the rear garden. It features a range of floor and wall units and has space for a breakfast table. Towards the rear of the house is the dining room, although use of this room is very flexible and would make a great family room or play room. This leads through to the useful utility with access to the rear garden and with a shower room off it. Beyond this is a study/4th bedroom which overlooks the rear garden and features underfloor heating.
To the first floor, the principal bedroom spans the full width of the front of the house and features sash windows with shutters. The current owners use this room as a first floor sitting room. There are two further bedrooms, as well as a bathroom with separate cloakroom and a floored loft with lighting.
To the front of the house there is a partially walled gravelled area providing off-road parking for a number of vehicles. To the side there is a fence and gate to the rear garden, which is currently also laid to gravel. The rear garden is mostly enclosed by a brick wall and offers a good level of seclusion. There is a timber shed, as well as an outside tap and power point. It also has a bright south-westerly aspect, taking best advantage of any afternoon sunshine.
