Beautifully refurbished to retain its period charm, this delightful two bedroom semi detached cottage built circa 1910 features a cosy reception room, dining room and a stunning fully fitted eat-in kitchen with bi fold doors to a private garden. Cleveland Road is within the heart of the historic Whyke area of central Chichester, it would be an easy walk into town which offers a wide range of shops, cafes and restaurants to choose from, and close to the station & local bus routes for commuting, parking is always at a premium in any city center but there is on street residents parking permits available and voucher parking for guests. This house has been lovingly restored by the current owners with many exceptional features including a stunning fully fitted eat in kitchen with bi fold doors to a pretty south facing garden, to the front is a cosy lounge with bay window and open fireplace, a spacious dining room with exposed wood flooring and period style fireplace overlooks the rear aspect, and there is a handy downstairs cloakroom neatly tucked away under the stairs. The master bedroom is light and airy with high ceilings, a cast iron feature fireplace and built in storage cupboard, Bedroom two has polished wood flooring, feature fireplace and overlooks the rear garden, originally the bathroom was on the ground floor but now has been relocated upstairs in what was formerly the third bedroom and what a difference that has made, a spacious luxury bathroom fitted with a sleek suite comprising a double ended bath, large wash hand basin, low level wc and large shower cubicle. The house has the potential to offer a third bedroom and an additional bathroom by converting the loft space, this could easily be created by an incoming buyer it would be a simple conversion with a staircase returning directly up from the galleried first floor landing. The pretty south facing garden has been well cared for and landscaped with a full width slate style terrace, interestingly planted with a range of plants and shrubs including fragrant Rosemary and Lavender, beautiful Peonies and flowering Clematis, there is a small lawn area with a central fruit tree, a neatly arranged vegetable planting area and to the rear of the garden a storage shed, a usable outside space that is not overlooked and gets drenched in sunshine all day long. Our vendors have really enjoyed living in this property over the last 7 years, they have improved the house well throughout and not just cosmetically, they have made many good friends with the neighbours, but now feel as a growing family its time to move on , they are motivated and enthusiastic to sell their property and find their next home. Marchwood likes this house because it offers a buyer the best of both worlds a modern living space packaged well in a tidy period property, in particular the stunning eat in kitchen impressed us, giving it a very London look, ideal for entertaining or family living alike, it's close to the center of town but its a quiet side road, it has the always favourable separate reception rooms, that pretty sun soaked south facing garden plus dont forget the potential for a third bedroom and a second bathroom up in the loft - fantastic!
