Estate Agents Chichester | Property guide for Chichester

The Country House Company are Estate Agents who provide Property Management, Lettings and Sales across Chichester and surrounding areas in Hampshire and Wiltshire.

Compact and intimate with Roman walls and a medieval heart, Chichester is one of Englands most beautiful medieval cities and made for exploring. The city sits at the base of the South Downs with the famous Goodwood Racecourse behind and Chichester marina to the front. There’s history on every corner, from the Tudor Market Cross to the magnificent Cathedral; a stunning backdrop to 21st century life. There’s fun shopping with designer labels, luxury handmade chocolates and French pastries, plus stylish restaurants, pavement cafes, gastro pubs and funky bars. Countryside properties in the city of Chichester and the surrounding villages that are available as houses to let or buy are highly sought after.

The four main streets stretch out like a compass following the Roman and medieval plan and, although small in scale, Chichester radiates great stature. The old city packed itself between the walls yet there are unusually fine areas of park and gardens. Rooted in the South Downs landscape are historic towns like HG Wells’s Midhurst, Petworth; an antiques hotspot, and photogenic villages like waterside Bosham and picturesque West Dean.

ChichesterIndoor sports can be pursued at Westgate Leisure Centre located a short walk from the town and railway station. Outdoor sports are also well catered for with numerous clubs in the area for every conceivable sport.

One reason why houses to rent in this city are so popular is the town’s excellent travel facilities: less than 40 miles to both Gatwick and Heathrow airports, 18 miles from the Portsmouth ferry service and less than 2 hours on the train to London Victoria. Properties to let here are also attractive for road-bound commuters as Chichester is easily reached via the M27 and A27 coast road which links Hampshire, Sussex and Kent. The A29 and A24 connect London and mid-Sussex to Chichester.

There are a whole host of excellent options for education which is another reason why houses to rent in this lively city are highly sought-after. Local state schools include Chichester High School for Girls and co-educational secondary school Bishop Luffa, whilst Lancing College, Hurstpierpoint College, Seaford College, Christs Hospital and Worth are popular public schools near Chichester and The Prebendal School, Westbourne House School, Great Ballard, Windlesham and Oakwood are popular prep schools.
