Full description

Dowrich House occupies a prime waterfront position with wonderful sea views and direct beach access from the garden, this handsome detached home offers character and charm and is offered for sale with the advantage of no onward chain.

Boasting an impressive 3,608 Sqft (including the integral garaging) the property provides comfortable rooms and plenty of flexible accommodation for a growing family or visitors. Upon entering the property the kitchen/breakfast room will be found to the left hand side and is well equipped with a range of units, ample worksurfaces and integral appliances. Moving through the property you’ll pass the study which could alternatively be used as a playroom or TV snug if preferred before arriving at the impressive dining room. A central reception hall with open fire leads on to the garden room as well as the formal sitting room, all of which overlook the rear garden. At the side of the property and accessed from the kitchen is the useful utility area, whilst the double integral garage can be accessed from the entrance hall.

Generously proportioned stairs from the reception hall rise to the first floor landing where all five double bedrooms will be found. The three larger bedrooms all have en-suite facilities. Bedrooms one and two also have access on to the south facing balcony and enjoy sea views, whilst the other two bedrooms share the family bathroom. In addition, accessed from bedroom four is the first floor ‘sea room’ which affords wonderful views over the southerly rear garden and English Channel.

The property benefits from having gas central heating, solar panels and is double glazed throughout.

The overall plot size measures approximately 1/3 acres. The house itself is approached via the gated ‘in and out’ driveway providing ample parking for a number of vehicles. There is further secure parking behind further gates along with a range of outbuildings providing ideal space for workshop, storage and hobbies. The delightful gardens offer a great deal of privacy and lead directly on to the beach. This section of beach is particularly desirable as it remains outside of the usual tourist areas and so remains relatively quiet all year. The sea water regularly achieves the highest cleanliness awards.

Private Estate Charge: currently £130 p.a.


Central Drive is part of the private 'Elmer Beach Estate' and located to the east of Middleton village centre which offers a number of local facilities and amenities including a post office, a doctor's surgery, a pharmacy, local schools and a sport/social club. A regular bus service links the area to Bognor Regis and Chichester, which both offer a wider range of shops and services.

Why live in Middleton-on-Sea?

The development of modern Middleton began after World War I, when Captain H Rowlands S Coldicott purchased great swathes of farmland with a plan to create both a residential estate and a village community.

This led to the development of the private Sea Lane Estate, which is still a sought-after residential area today thanks to its proximity to the sea and local shops. There are also many pretty thatched properties in the area along with small retirement apartments, bungalows and large family homes that enjoy direct access to the sea while, in neighbouring Felpham, we have the glorious private Summerley Estate.

Middleton-on-Sea is within easy reach of Chichester and Bognor Regis and is a perfect setting for family life. We have two local schools, including the Bishop Tufnell Primary School and the Felpham Community College for secondary students, along with a day nursery for pre-school children. We also have a good range of shops for such a small village, including coffee shops, a Post Office, a family butcher, a general store, newsagent, fish and chip shops, gift shops, a florist and some friendly pubs.

At low tide, Middleton-on-Sea’s sandy beach stretches from Littlehampton to Bognor Regis and is a favourite for local dog walkers and those who enjoy the fresh air and tranquillity of the sea.  Elmer Sands, a mile east of Middleton, is a particular beauty spot, enhanced by the interesting rock islands that were built as a sea defence two decades ago and which have left rock pools and safe areas for swimming and beginner water sports. Over in Felpham you’ll find beachfront cafés, the Arun Leisure Centre, which has a swimming pool and a well equipped gym, and public tennis courts next to the Promenade.
