Area information

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.

Affordable village living near Chichester

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.

What our clients say

Amazing Service

We are now well and truly settled into our new home and I wanted to thank Sim Williams for all you did to manage a speedy sale of our home. You said it wouldn't take long and with three offers within 36 hours we couldn't have asked for more. Having not been through the buying/selling process for 33 years we were immensely grateful to Mike and Mel for all their support, answering questions and following things through. The regular contacts and updates were extremely welcome and was something we hadn't expected.
Richard & Anne - Vendors - Mar 5th, 2021

Great Service

Having made the big decision to purchase a holiday rental home we can say that Sims Williams helped make the process extremely easy having received the keys within a month of us first viewing! A special mention goes to Tiffany who offered a wealth of local knowledge and information at our initial viewing and helped us make the decision to purchase. Everyone in the office was friendly and accommodating throughout the process and I would certainly not hesitate in recommending them. Thank you!
Katie - Buyer - Aug 2nd, 2021

Tessa F - Landlord - Dec 16th, 2020

Emmanuel - Tenant - Jan 14th, 2020

Absolutely first class service

Jo was our main point of contact and the service her and her colleagues provided was faultless. Fantastic communication and lovely tenants found. I would add that I have also bought and sold properties through Sims Williams over the past 25 years and done another rental too, and not once have they ever slipped on their first class service..and super friendly too. Well done all of you.
Tracey - Landlord - Jun 7th, 2022

BRILLIANT SERVICE

From the moment we first called we knew they were a professional outfit. Towards the end of the move the service was still first class and the after care was there too. Can’t fault anyone who works there! Thanks again.
Mark S - Tenant - Jul 28th, 2020

Excellent Service

I just wanted to thank you and your team for all your help and patience in dealing with the sale of Jasmine Bungalow which will hopefully complete next week. Karen and Calum especially have been excellent to deal with in the current sale which I’m sure wasn’t easy for them at times. But their help and patience made the frustrations much easier to cope with! And I also wanted to thank Michael too for his assistance, advice and patience in dealing with the first abortive sale.
Ms Rawson - Vendor - Jun 8th, 2021

Extensive Marketing & Regular Progress Updates

Sims Williams well researched advice on suitable house types and values, was very much appreciated at the early stages of our development plan. Their extensive marketing and regular progress updates kept us fully informed throughout the process. I would strongly recommend their services.

Property Purchase

I would like to thank Sims Williams for their first class service when we bought a property from the Millgate development in Barnham. Both Jane and Marilyn went above and beyond to support our house purchase. They were always kind, helpful and friendly. Thank you very much.
Emma- New Home Buyer - Apr 12th, 2022

Amazing service from start to finish

Having been given short notice and trying to find a property in a particular area I was very lucky to have found Jo at Sims Williams ! She did everything she said she would and she made the whole process from start to finish so so easy and believe you me the service was the best out of all the agents that I used in the local area !
