Full description

Located within a desirable private estate and just 140m from the beach, this attractive detached residence offers well presented accommodation and would make a wonderful family home or weekend retreat. The property also benefits from planning consent for a single storey side extension to create further accommodation. We are informed that some of the footings have already been laid, so the planning permission is now preserved for future continuation if desired.

The accommodation is arranged over two floors, measures 1,346 sqft and briefly comprises: entrance lobby which leads onto the sitting room with its feature fireplace and in turn leads to the impressive open plan kitchen/dining/living room. The kitchen has been recently re-fitted and includes a range of integral appliances. There is also a breakfast bar as well as ample space for a dining table and sofas with bi-fold doors opening onto the decking and garden beyond. A WC completes the ground floor.Stairs from the entrance lobby rise to the first floor where the family bathroom, double cupboard and all three bedrooms will be found.

Outside, there is parking at the front of the property for a number of vehicles with the driveway leading to the garage. The rear garden enjoys a high level of privacy and a westerly aspect. It is mainly laid to lawn with a large decked area, summerhouse and mature hedging.

Why live in Middleton-on-Sea?

The development of modern Middleton began after World War I, when Captain H Rowlands S Coldicott purchased great swathes of farmland with a plan to create both a residential estate and a village community.

This led to the development of the private Sea Lane Estate, which is still a sought-after residential area today thanks to its proximity to the sea and local shops. There are also many pretty thatched properties in the area along with small retirement apartments, bungalows and large family homes that enjoy direct access to the sea while, in neighbouring Felpham, we have the glorious private Summerley Estate.

Middleton-on-Sea is within easy reach of Chichester and Bognor Regis and is a perfect setting for family life. We have two local schools, including the Bishop Tufnell Primary School and the Felpham Community College for secondary students, along with a day nursery for pre-school children. We also have a good range of shops for such a small village, including coffee shops, a Post Office, a family butcher, a general store, newsagent, fish and chip shops, gift shops, a florist and some friendly pubs.

At low tide, Middleton-on-Sea’s sandy beach stretches from Littlehampton to Bognor Regis and is a favourite for local dog walkers and those who enjoy the fresh air and tranquillity of the sea.  Elmer Sands, a mile east of Middleton, is a particular beauty spot, enhanced by the interesting rock islands that were built as a sea defence two decades ago and which have left rock pools and safe areas for swimming and beginner water sports. Over in Felpham you’ll find beachfront cafés, the Arun Leisure Centre, which has a swimming pool and a well equipped gym, and public tennis courts next to the Promenade.
