Full description

Built in circa 1906, this delightful semi detached cottage is situated in a unique position on the outskirts of the village of East Wittering, surrounded by open farmland and with the advantage of access straight down to the beach through the fields at the rear of the property.

The highly adaptable accommodation measures 1,280 sqft (including the attached garage) and briefly includes: A double aspect sitting room with a wood burning stove, a kitchen/breakfast room with Aga style range, a separate dining room, a study area and a ground floor WC. From the kitchen/breakfast room stairs rise to the first floor where the bathroom and all three bedrooms will be found. Two bedrooms have fireplaces and all have lovely views of open countryside. There are also inviting views towards the Solent and the Isle of Wight from bedroom two and sea glimpses from bedroom three.

Outside, a driveway provides ample off road parking and sweeps round to the rear of the property where there is a garage with a small outbuilding attached. The garden is laid to lawn with mature shrubs, trees and borders and there is a large timber shed and store. A gate at the rear of the garden enters the fields behind the cottage where there is a legal easement to use the footpath which leads down to the beach.


Surrounded by open fields, the property is located within the parish of West Wittering, but within easy reach of the East Wittering village centre. West Wittering was recently voted amongst the top 10 coastal locations in the Sunday Times and it has a beautiful, sandy, Blue Flag beach with views towards the Isle of Wight. The City of Chichester offers a range of shops, restaurants, the Festival Theatre and a railway station. Goodwood Racecourse/Motor Circuit are close by.

Why live in the Witterings?

People flock to East Wittering during the holiday season thanks to our world-famous beaches that are so beautiful and a way of life that’s relaxed and warm.

It’s little wonder we experienced significant building development during the 1960s and ‘80s when our rich mix of character house styles in the Witterings made it hard for people to leave. Many of the properties in the area enjoy wonderful views across the English Channel and the sound of distant waves provides a soothing backing track to everyday life here.

There’s no shortage of things to do in the area, especially if you enjoy spending time on the beach, playing water sports and experiencing the countryside and wildlife.  Both East and West Wittering are well known for sailing and surfing and there are local sailing clubs at West Wittering, Itchenor and Dell Quay and mooring facilities at Chichester Marina. West Wittering beach is postcard-perfect with its vast expanses of fine golden sand while East Wittering is more typically English with a shingle shelf that’s exposed when the tide goes out leaving behind stunning areas of wet sand where you can make sandcastles to your heart’s content. The nearby Bracklesham Bay is especially popular with surfers, divers, windsurfers and paddle boarders as well as being a treasure trove for fossil hunters.

We have everything here you need to enjoy this idyllic lifestyle here. In the village you’ll find a good selection of shops, including mini supermarkets, greengrocers, butchers, banks, bakers and a fishmonger and everything is close by in Chichester and Portsmouth.  We have two local schools for children up to 11 years of age at East Wittering Community Primary School and West Wittering Parochial C of E School and a choice of secondary schools and further education options in Chichester.
