Full description

This stylish, well presented detached house is located within walking distance of the beach at Bracklesham Bay and has been recently extended to provide spacious, family accommodation. Although originally built as a four bedroom house, the property currently enjoys the benefit of three larger bedrooms and three bathrooms, although we understand that it could easily be converted back to four, if required. EPC-C.

The accommodation measures 1,445 sq ft and briefly includes: entrance hall with store cupboards and cloakroom/WC, a fully fitted, open plan kitchen/dining room measuring 23'4 x 11'3 and a spacious sitting room with doors opening out onto the rear garden. A utility room with sink unit plus storeroom have also been created from the former integral garage (which still retains its original doors to the front). Stairs from the entrance hall lead to the first floor, which has been extensively remodelled to include a spacious master bedroom with dressing room and en suite shower room, bedroom 2 with a fitted wardrobe cupboard and en suite shower and a third bedroom adjacent the family bathroom.

Outside, the property is approached by a sweeping tarmac driveway with parking for several cars and has an area of lawn bordered by numerous shrubs and trees. The rear garden is landscaped and laid mainly to lawn with a paved patio, area of raised decking to the rear, a wooden shed and enjoys a wide variety of trees and shrubs. The whole area is enclosed by wooden fencing.



Situated at Bracklesham Bay, a coastal village some 7 miles south-west of the City of Chichester. The beach there is a popular place to enjoy a variety of water sports or admire the lovely view towards the Isle of Wight. ‘Billy's' beachside café/restaurant and some local shops are close by, although 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. There is a regular bus service to Chichester City centre with its range of shops, restaurants, cinemas, Festival Theatre and main line railway station.

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.
