Originally a coastal battery built during the Second World War and located in a strategic waterside position as part of Britain's sea defences, the property was converted into a residential dwelling during the 80's and has recently undergone a comprehensive refurbishment by the hotelier and entrepreneur, Peter de Savary.
The spacious and versatile accommodation has been architecturally designed to afford stunning sea views from the principal rooms. The accommodation is arranged over three floors with extensive private terraces all enjoying the unparalleled sea views.
On the first floor, the impressive triple aspect kitchen/dining room can be found, there is a cloakroom and steps leading up to a spacious sitting room, benefitting from a log burning stove and bi-fold doors opening onto a large terrace with fabulous sea views. A wrap-around balcony leads from the first floor terrace around to the dining room.
On the top floor is the master suite, which has the benefit of a walk-in dressing room with sea views, an en-suite, an upper viewing gallery and access to a large balcony affording uninterrupted panoramic sea views.
On the ground floor, there are a further two double bedrooms, one with an en-suite, a further shower room/WC, a utility room and a large mezzanine reception room with bi-folding doors opening onto a private secluded terrace.
Outside, the property is accessed via remote controlled electronic gates, which open into a landscaped courtyard, driveway and garage.
The Gun Post enjoys an impressive waterfront location within a few hundred yards from the centre of the coastal village of Felpham. The cathedral city of Chichester is close by, which offers a wide range of leisure facilities. Historic Arundel and Goodwood motor circuit and racecourse can all be found within approximately ten mile radius.
The property is in mint condition having been refurbished to the highest standard inside and out. A new owner can look forward to enjoying the very best of seaside living.

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.
