Full description

This character house offers a surprising level of adaptable accommodation, ideal for modern family living. The property originally dates from 1936 and has been cleverly extended and improved by the current owners to offer flexibility, with various options for working from home and the creation of a self contained annexe if required.

The property measures 3,059 sq ft, including the garage and outbuildings. The ground floor briefly comprises: a feature L-shaped kitchen-dining room with it's generous range of modern units, separate utility room and space for a large dining table. In addition there are three reception rooms, a cosy snug, a central sitting room with feature fireplace, and at the rear of the property, the garden room. A generous double bedroom with it's own garden access, dressing room and en-suite bathroom complete the ground floor and would make an ideal annexe for a grandparent or for generating an income.

The first floor continues to offer character throughout and a further four double bedrooms with the principle bedroom also having an en-suite shower room. Bedroom 4 has an en-suite toilet and wash basin but has potential to become a shower room. A family bathroom completes the first floor.

Outside, the property is approached via a long driveway providing ample off road parking and leading to the garage. The front garden has been attractively landscaped, provides a good level of privacy and contains a timber summerhouse which has been insulated and converted for use as a home office. The established and immaculate rear garden enjoys a sunny southerly aspect and a high level of privacy. Behind the garage is a further outbuilding which is divided into two rooms and would make an ideal home office, studio or workshop.

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.
