4 St Johns Street is a beautifully restored and elegant
detached Grade II listed house set right in the heart of the
historic city of Chichester. Just yards from the main shopping streets of the city, the house offers great style
and character combined with an extremely convenient
location. Dating from the early/mid-19th century, particular period features of note include sash windows and interior shutter, high ceilings, picture rails, moulded cornicing and ceiling roses. It is believed the window shutters in place on the ground floor are original features of the house.
On entering the house, an entrance lobby leads through
to the hallway. This, in turn, opens out to the spacious
kitchen/dining room which extends across the width of
the rear of the house. This room features an attractive
range of floor standing units and a central island unit, with an AGA to one end and a butler style sink. French doors lead from the kitchen space to the courtyard garden, giving this space a light and airy feel. Leading through from the kitchen space is the cosy sitting room to the house, with feature fireplace and shuttered sash window. In addition to the sitting room there is also a drawing room, accessed from the hallway, offering slightly more formal reception space and also featuring a fireplace and shuttered sash window. To the rear of the ground floor is an extremely useful utility room/kitchenette, as well as a ground floor wet room. There is a utility room that is accessed from the rear courtyard. In addition to this there is also a cellar to the house, with access to two storage areas, which has the potential for a basement 4th bedroom with en suite shower room.
To the first floor, the landing provides access to the principal bedroom, which is currently open to the third
bedroom. In this current layout, the third bedroom could
easily be used as a dressing room, however reinstating the
partition wall or installing wardrobes between the rooms
would allow each bedroom to be used independently. In
addition there is a further double bedroom, as well as a
well-proportioned bathroom which includes a freestanding bath and ''his & hers'' sink unit.
4 St Johns Street offers an attractive courtyard garden to
the rear of the house with gated access to the side. The
courtyard is laid to herringbone brick and flagstones and
edged with raised beds, trellising and a feature brick and
flint wall to the end.
