Full description

This detached, chalet-style family home is located within a residential side road, conveniently positioned for the local shops, beach and bus route at Bracklesham Bay.

The property offers a great deal of character and a feature of particular note is the delightful southerly-facing rear garden and colourful front garden. Internally, the property measures 1437 sq ft (including garage) and the ground floor accommodation includes: An entrance porch opening to an entrance hall, a sitting room which has been extended and measures in excess of 28ft in length and has a feature brick fireplace. A stable door separates the lounge from the dining room, which has plenty of storage and is open to the kitchen which has an integrated fridge freezer and oven and space for a washing machine. Doors from the dining room open out to the rear garden. There is also a ground floor double bedroom which would suit a dependant relative, since there is both a bathroom and a separate cloakroom just opposite. Stairs from the entrance hall rise to the first floor, where two further double bedrooms will be found. Each bedroom has an en suite shower room/WC and built in storage.

Outside, the pretty front Garden enjoys a deep colourful border with a driveway leading to the attached garage and entrance porch. The rear garden provides a good level of privacy and a southerly aspect. It is laid mainly to lawn with established borders, patio and a brick-built garden store



Situated within a quiet cul-de-sac in Bracklesham Bay, a coastal village located some 7 miles to the south west of the City of Chichester. The beach enjoys views over the English Channel to the Isle of Wight and is popular with both windsurfers and divers.

These include: Infants and junior school, doctors surgery, chemist, dentist, library, two mini supermarkets, post office, local butchers, fishmongers, bakers and greengrocers to name but a few. There is also a regular bus service to Chichester which offers a fully comprehensive range of shops and leisure facilities, cinemas, trendy restaurants, the Festival Theatre, and a main line train station to London Victoria. The world famous Goodwood Racecourse and motor circuit are some 3 miles beyond Chichester. Sailing can be enjoyed at both the Chichester marina and Itchenor sailing clubs.

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.
