Full description

Whilst there had been some residential settlement around the Harbour, dating to the Middle Ages (Pagham is estimated to have been the third richest parish in England at one point, and under the stewardship of Thomas à Becket), Pagham Beach was first populated in the 1920’s.   As was done in several places along the coast (including Dungeness where Derek Jarman famously made his home) first generation Victorian Brighton and South East Railway rolling stock were adapted and turned into holiday homes.

Henry Adams are proud to offer this beach property with a pair of original teak railway carriages at its core.  Rebuilt from scratch around them in 2014, the property has a South facing beach window sliding into the ground to create a stunning indoor/outdoor open plan main space.  With oak flooring to complement the teak carriages, this includes a large sitting room/dining area open to a snug with a log-burning stove, and a quality fitted kitchen with integral appliances, a central island and a raised woodblock breakfast bar. 

Forming the sides of the main space, one carriage is dedicated to a principal bedroom suite with dressing area and bathroom, and the other to a study/bedroom and the snug. On the garden side, the newly built extension includes utility room, shower room and WC leading to two further bedrooms and a covered sun deck with sliding doors leading to the large garden.  The garden facing wall as well as the extension are clad with weathered sweet chestnut.

The property is set in generous grounds with a mature garden on the North side (away from the beach), and wide shingle corridors to the East and West creating ample space from its neighbours.

A large new-build sweet-chestnut clad garage and a separate and unrenovated two-carriage property on the West boundary are also available for sale by separate negotiation.


The property is situated directly on Pagham Beach, on a quiet private road just a few hundred metres from Pagham Harbour RSPB Nature Reserve, with local shops and Pagham Yacht Club within easy walking distance. The Cathedral City of Chichester with mainline access to London and world-class cultural facilities including Chichester Festival Theatre and Pallant House Gallery is about seven miles to the West.

Why live in Bognor Regis & Aldwick?

The town of Bognor earned its seal of royal approval when King George V came here to convalesce in the 1920s. Fast forward and Bognor is now favoured as a commercial hub, with many large retailers moving to the area to take advantage of the wealth of commercial property available. There are also many new residential developments on the edge of the old town that blend well with the period properties and apartments on the seafront.

Bognor Regis is one of the sunniest places in the UK and our award-winning beaches are a great place to go to soak up the rays. The huge expanses of sand are bordered by a long esplanade that stretches for nearly three miles and provides the launch pad for the annual International Bognor Birdman competition.

We have a broad range of school options and plenty of recreational facilities for families. One of the best is Hotham Park in the centre of town, which has plenty to entertain the young ones, including a crazy golf course, a miniature railway and a boating lake. It also hosts several major events over the year, including Proms in the Park, a Country Fair and the South Downs Music Festival.

You’ll also find many places to eat and drink, especially along the esplanade and along the High Street, where fresh, locally caught fish feature on the menus. Local shopping is also good, with all the major chains you’d hope to find and some quirky independent shops too.
