Chichester is the only city in West Sussex and is one of the most desirable places to live in England. Property styles range from modern city apartments and quaint terraced cottages to imposing four-storey townhouses and sprawling country estates.
With average house prices in Chichester almost double the national average, city centre living comes at a price. However, the outskirts of the city and surrounding villages offer more affordable options in the beautiful setting of the South Downs and along the stunning coastline.
Within easy reach of Chichester are many popular villages such as Singleton, East Dean, Charlton, Lavant, East Marden, Compton, Walderton and Chilgrove nestling in the Downs to the north, with East and West Ashling, Funtington, Fishbourne and Hambrook to the west and Tangmere, Oving and Boxgrove to the east.
Surrounding Chichester Harbour are several sailing and seaside towns and villages including Bosham, East and West Wittering, Sidlesham, Bracklesham Bay, Selsey and Bognor Regis.
Chichester is a great place for families, with lots to do and excellent performing schools and the prestigious University of Chichester.
