Kimber is a detached property situated in a highly desirable location about 1.5 miles north of Chichester city centre and overlooking open farmland. Having not come to the market since being built in about 1960 and now in need of some modernisation, this is rare opportunity to acquire a property with potential to further develop and extend (subject to planning).
On entering the house, the spacious hallway leads to all the principal reception rooms, which includes a well-proportioned living room with dining space and a good size study. The study could easily be used as a ground floor bedroom. The kitchen and breakfast room is currently separated by open shelving and is adjacent to a large covered patio, accessed through a rear lobby. This also leads to a store and the large attached double garage. The ground floor is completed with a conservatory leading from the living room and a cloakroom.
To the first floor, the spacious principal bedroom suite comprises a spacious bedroom, a dressing room (currently used as a first floor family room) and an en-suite bathroom. There are 3 further bedrooms (a double room and 2 single rooms), as well as a family bathroom and separate small shower room. All the bedrooms look out across the gardens and over the open farmland beyond.
The house is set in surprisingly large gardens and grounds, totalling just over 0.4 acres. A driveway leads to the double garage and a parking area, with a side gate giving access to the gardens. The gardens stretch around the house and overlook open farmland to the west. The gardens are mostly laid to lawn edged with mature hedging and there is are vegetable patches to the northern end, along with a timber shed.
Kimber is located in a peaceful and sought-after residential area in a popular part of Summersdale, which is convenient forChichester city centre and yet the beautiful countryside of the South Downs is easily accessible to the north. Summersdale offers 2 local convenience stores (one with a post office) and medical centre with pharmacy.

The variety of social and recreational activities include sports centres with swimming pools, cinemas and a fine selection of restaurants, wine bars and bistros. Cultural activities include the award winning Pallant House Gallery and the internationally renowned Chichester Festival Theatre. There is an excellent choice of schools in the area, both state and private.
