Houses and flats for sale in Chichester
People are buying lifestyle holiday homes in the quieter coastal areas such as Dell Quay, Bosham and Apuldram. Properties for sale in this area are predominantly large with character and attract high profile buyers looking for space and privacy whilst still being less than two hours from London.
Not only do many of these houses for sale allow the owner to step directly onto their mooring, they might also offer the space and facilities for tennis and swimming and the comforts you would expect at this level.

Living in Chichester
The cathedral city of Chichester provides a comprehensive range of shops, bars and restaurants arranged partly within the ancient walls, now a pedestrianised area. The arts are well catered for, as the city is home to the internationally known Festival Theatre, the Minerva Theatre and Pallant House Gallery, which houses one of the most significant modern art collections on the south coast.
The nearby waters of the Solent are particularly popular with sailors and the area has 13 sailing clubs including Itchenor and Bosham. The National Trust reserve of East Head is some seven miles away, having perhaps the most picturesque beach in West Sussex and the nearby shoreline of West Wittering provides opportunities for swimming, wind surfing, kite surfing and land boarding.
Other attractions include Goodwood with its internationally known race course, as well as providing many other facilities including a private country club, golf course and airfield. Goodwood also plays host to the annual Festival of Speed and the Revival Meeting, both of which have become prominent annual events. The newly created South Downs National Park is criss-crossed with many footpaths and bridleways providing excellent facilities for mountain biking, horse riding and walking in some of the richest countryside in the south of England.
There are several choices of vehicle access to London including either the M27/A3 or the A286/ A285 via Petworth to the A283 joining the A3 at Milford. The mainline station situated at Chichester provides a regular service to London Victoria in about 1 hour 40 minutes and to Gatwick in about 1 hour 5 minutes. An alternative slightly faster rail service to London is also available from Havant in about 1 hour 20 minutes to London
