Full description

Poppets is a detached chalet style house offering charm and a surprising level of accommodation.

Nestled at the end of a cul-de-sac within the desirable private Harefield Estate, the property is ideally positioned for access to the Middleton-on-Sea village amenities and is now offered for sale for the first time in 28 years with the advantage of no onward chain.

The accommodation is arranged over two floors and measures some 1,938 Sqft including the integral garage. The ground floor starts with the entrance hall leading to three reception rooms including the sitting room with its feature fireplace, triple aspect windows overlooking the wrap-around garden, and access to the sun lounge. There is a separate dining room, as well as the breakfast room, which is linked to the kitchen via a feature archway. The dining room, breakfast room and kitchen could potentially be combined to create a large kitchen/entertaining space if desired. From the breakfast room a rear lobby provides useful utility space and leads to the ground floor double bedroom with en-suite shower room. This provides privacy, ideal for visitors. The lobby area also has a door to the front garden and driveway, as well as access to the integral garage. The entrance hall, sitting room and dining room all have attractive woodblock flooring.

Stairs from the entrance hall rise to the first floor where the family bathroom and two further double bedrooms will be found. Both bedrooms are generous in size and have access to the eaves for storage.

Outside, the pretty gardens wrap around the property on three sides with the rear garden area providing a high level of privacy and enjoying a southerly aspect.

Private Estate Charge: We understand the private estate charge is currently £200 p.a.

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.
