Full description

Fairfield is a handsome detached house of character believed to date back some 200 years. Positioned within a delightful rural area between West Wittering village and Itchenor, the property is now offered for sale with the advantage of no forward chain. EPC-D

The accommodation offers space and flexibility measuring some 2,665 sq ft and arranged over two floors. The ground floor briefly comprises: entrance hall, 22ft sitting room with separate dining room, a country kitchen with separate utility room. Beyond the kitchen is the playroom and to the rear of the property, an equally generous family room (with access to the attached garage, although either room could be used for a variety of purposes). The ground floor also includes a second utility lobby area which, in turn, leads to the cloaks/shower room.

Stairs from the entrance hall rise to the first floor landing where the four bedrooms and family bathroom will be found. The 22ft master bedroom enjoys dual front and rear aspects, along with an en-suite shower room. The other three bedrooms are double rooms, with the smallest measuring 13'7 x 6'10.

Fairfield has been extended and improved over time. We understand that the rear extension was completed with under-floor heating in 2008. The property benefits from a mains gas supply, has a private drainage and was fully re-wired with both plumbing and heating systems updated in 2005.

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.
