Full description

Shemara is a detached house believed to date from the 1960's now requiring modernisation throughout. The property occupies a prime beachfront plot of approximately 0.15 acres and overlooks the English Channel with views towards the Isle of Wight. This section of the beach is often favoured for its quietness, being tucked away from most visitors to the area.

The existing property measures 1,358 sq ft and briefly comprises: two bedrooms, kitchen and bathroom on the ground floor with a sitting room, master bedroom with en suite and balcony on the first floor. Outside, there is an existing double garage with additional home office/studio behind. EPC-F.

**The present owners have obtained planning permission from Chichester District Council for the re-development of the site, creating a replacement dwelling with garaging. Full details can be found on the planning page of www.chichester.gov.uk reference EWB/17/00147/FUL. We advise that all interested parties should read the associated planning documents.** The proposed replacement dwelling would include four double bedrooms, all with en-suite facilities on the ground floor, with a spacious open-plan kitchen-family-living space, cloakroom/WC and balcony on the first floor. The second floor would comprise a galleried home office and games room or occasional 5th bedroom. The plans also include a replacement detached double garage.



Situated directly on the beach at Bracklesham Bay, a coastal village some 7 miles to the south-west of the City of Chichester. The beach enjoys views towards the Isle of Wight and is a popular place to enjoy a variety of water sports. The village offers a convenience store/post office and further amenities can be found at the nearby village of East Wittering, including: infants/junior school, GP surgery, chemist, dentist, library and a range of quality independent shops.

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.
