Winterbourne House is a delightful unlisted period home in the heart of Chichester city centre, with brick and flint walls under a tiled roof. It is believed that the house dates from the early 18th century, and was originally two adjoining buildings and a stable with a hayloft above. The property has undergone a complete programme of renovation and redesign, creating a wonderful city centre home with beautifully appointed accommodation. Winterbourne House benefits from a very good size sitting room, with a fireplace with a stone hearth and a wood burning stove and casement doors opening on to a south-facing courtyard garden. There is also a good size and well-equipped kitchen which leads into a delightful garden/dining room with large roof lantern, adjacent to which is a cloakroom. Oak flooring can be found over the majority of the ground floor and first floor as well as a number of bespoke features throughout the property. There is also a small and useful cellar. On the first floor there are three bedrooms, one having an en-suite shower room, a further bathroom as well as a substantial loft storage area. Outside, Winterbourne House benefits from a delightful and private south-facing walled courtyard garden. The house is ideally situated for those wanting to be close to the extensive facilities of the pedestrianised city centre which offers an excellent range of shops, cafes and restaurants. The city skyline is dominated by the 12th century cathedral and Chichester is well known for its internationally recognised Festival Theatre, located about 1/2 a mile away, as well as the award winning Pallant House Gallery.
