After entering through the colourful front door, there is a bright and airy sitting room which has a TV with DVD player. Wi-Fi internet access is also available. The main feature of the ground floor, however, is the wonderfully spacious kitchen and dining room.

Outside, the rear garden has a lawn and patio area. To the front of the house there is off-road parking for 1 car. Directly opposite the house is New Park, which is ideal for the kids to have a run around or to enjoy a gentle stroll around the park and the war memorial in Litten Gardens.
Alexandra Road is located just to the east of Chichester city centre and is within a short walk all the shops, restaurants, bars and amenities the city centre has to offer. The history of Chichester dates back to beyond Roman times, but it is perhaps now most famous for its imposing cathedral, which itself is over 1,000 years old. The renowned Chichester Festival Theatre is also just a short walk away, which offers a great selection of shows throughout the year.
Other local attraction include the Goodwood Estate, known around the world for both its horse racing and the Glorious Goodwood week, as well as its motor racing events that include the Goodwood Festival of Speed and the Goodwood Revival. One of the best beaches on the south coast is located at West Wittering, to the south of Chichester. With the excellent road and rail links, it is also easy to visit the cities of Portsmouth, famous as being home to the Royal Navy, and Brighton, which has a wonderful array of shops and bars. London is also less than 2 hours away, with direct trains from Chichester to London Victoria.
