Full description

Stone Frigate is a detached beachfront chalet house in the highly desirable Marine Drive West, a private road. The property enjoys panoramic views of The Solent and Isle of Wight and benefits from having a detached self-contained annexe. Re-development of the site may be possible, subject to the usual planning permissions and the property is sold with the advantage of no forward chain.

The accommodation offers a great deal of flexibility at present and, including the annexe, measures 1,788 sq ft. The accommodation briefly comprises: spacious entrance hall leading into the main residence which has access to the attached garage and double doors leading to a separate inner hall. From here, a door opens into the dining room which, in turn has doors opening into the cloakroom/WC, second bedroom, bath/shower room, bedroom 2 and the fitted kitchen/breakfast room. From the dining room are turned stairs leading to the first floor sitting room (or possible master bedroom) which has a door to bedroom 1 (or dressing room) and an en suite shower room. Patio doors from the sitting room open onto the sizeable balcony which has a panoramic view of the beach.

The separate annexe has an entrance hall leading to a further two bedrooms, shower room, fitted kitchen and a sitting room with a door leading out to the patio area.

Outside, to the front of the property is off-road parking for 2 vehicles and an enclosed patio area leading to the property's entrance. To the south side of the coastal footpath there is a private enclosed seating area from which the beach can be directly accessed.



The property is situated within the parish of West Wittering, some 7 miles to the south-west of Chichester. The beaches in the Witterings enjoy views towards the Isle of Wight and are popular with windsurfers. The village nearby (at East Wittering) offers a range of local facilities including: infants/junior school, GP's surgery, dentist, library, 2 mini supermarkets and a range of quality independent shops. There is also a regular bus service to Chichester with its wide range of shops, cinemas, restaurants, Festival Theatre and main line railway station. The world-famous Goodwood Racecourse and Motor Circuit are some 3 miles beyond Chichester.

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.
