Full description

Coast & Country by Henry Adams are proud to present an exciting opportunity to build your own home with direct beach access on to Bracklesham Bay. ‘Spindrift’ is a rare opportunity as our clients managed to obtain full planning permission for the first three-storey house of this kind on East Bracklesham Drive, a house that will take full advantage of the glorious panoramic sea views. The first and second floors will give magnificent views of the Isle of Wight and of the water sports for which Bracklesham is well-known. Planning permission has been granted for an ultra-modern, energy-efficient detached property designed by Randell Design Group and Helyer Davies Architects where you can enjoy an immediate sightline to the sea as soon as you step through the front door. The current plans provide the main house with three bedrooms on the ground floor – each one with an en suite and benefitting from a private terrace. There is also a utility room on this floor.

The first floor hosts a fabulous and spacious reception room perfect for living/dining and entertaining with a semi-enclosed kitchen off to the side. There is a large covered balcony overlooking the rear garden and beach. Climbing to the top floor, there is a gym/ office/ library or further fourth bedroom within the main house that benefits from a private balcony with stunning panoramic views of the sea, complete with an en suite shower room. At the front of Spindrift, the permission grants two detached outbuildings. One is for a private indoor pool or spa with changing facilities and the other is for guest accommodation providing a fourth/fifth bedroom, complete with en suite and terrace. Every detail has been considered to design this incredible home: even the outbuildings have been designed with relatively high parapets to ensure that any solar panels on the roofs would be hidden from view.

Our clients intended to install an Air Source Heat Pump for underfloor heating throughout the house, with a design for this already complete, too. Three-phase electricity has already been installed on site to enable rapid electric vehicle charging. Furthermore, building control have already been appointed, with the associated fees paid, and building regulations drawings are almost complete and expected to meet the new regulations standard with an EPC of A+. Lastly, our clients even managed to retain their permitted development rights whilst obtaining the planning permission, meaning that the purchaser could look to further enhance the building. Additional amendments to the house could also be sought, subject to consent. Spindrift is a truly fantastic ready-to-go opportunity not to be missed and your chance to build a magnificent modern residence backing directly onto the beach.

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.
