Full description

Summerheys is a charming 1930's detached family home, which offers unique and characterful accommodation. The house sits proudly in a very highly regarded and desirable location in West Wittering, and is within walking distance to one of the most beautiful sandy beaches along the south coast.

Worthy of note, is its striking arched loggia that greets you as you approach the property. Once inside, the generous and versatile accommodation measures 2402 sq ft (excluding the garage and outbuildings) and could be utilised in a number of directions, since there are multiple ground floor reception rooms, plus both ground floor and upper floor bedrooms. A generous central reception hall forms the hub of home from where the sitting room, dining room, kitchen and conservatory can all be reached, with each room benefitting from views across the rear south facing garden. The kitchen is fitted with plenty of cupboards and opens to a utility room which has access out to the garden. The study is also off of the reception hall and measures a sizeable 21.5 ft x 20.9 ft. This room could easily be used as an additional bedroom if required as there is a shower room/WC located next door to it and also a personal door out to the garden.

An arched staircase rises to the first floor where there are three double bedrooms. Bedrooms one and two both face south and bedroom three is situated to the front of the property. In addition there is a bathroom and a shower room, both of which are a good size.

Outside, a gravel driveway provides ample off road parking and leads to a detached double garage which has recently had a new roof and electric door, plus it is connected to power and light. The rear garden faces south and has a generous expanse of lawn, complete with a home office, plus two storage sheds and a summer house.

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.
