Full description

This is a unique two-storey residence forming part of Strange Garden House, which is believed to have been re-built in the 1930's from the ashes of the original thatched cottage known as Aldwick Villa at the end of Paradise Lane. This distinguished building combines architectural features such as Dutch gables and Moorish domes, reflecting the flair and exuberance of its creator Mr D F Darymple. Step inside this two-storey residence and you will appreciate the style and character of this special home with high ceilings, feature archways, stone fireplace, a south facing open plan spacious sitting room/dining room, sun room and open tread stairs to the first floor. The kitchen/breakfast room has arched double doors opening onto the raised terrace. There is also a small study, utility and ground floor bathroom.

On the first floor, the principal bedroom with en-suite and balcony, the second bedroom has the feature domed ceiling and access to the balcony. The back portion of the first floor has been informally separated to a one bedroom annexe. However, this could potentially be re-converted, to two further double bedrooms and bathrooms.

The property is approached by a shared gravel drive with two garages. The rear garden has lawned areas, a raised terrace and patios, ideal for alfresco entertaining. There is a gate leading to copse with direct beach access. The copse is collectively owned by the residence of Strange Garden Estate.

Why live in Bognor Regis & Aldwick?

The town of Bognor earned its seal of royal approval when King George V came here to convalesce in the 1920s. Fast forward and Bognor is now favoured as a commercial hub, with many large retailers moving to the area to take advantage of the wealth of commercial property available. There are also many new residential developments on the edge of the old town that blend well with the period properties and apartments on the seafront.

Bognor Regis is one of the sunniest places in the UK and our award-winning beaches are a great place to go to soak up the rays. The huge expanses of sand are bordered by a long esplanade that stretches for nearly three miles and provides the launch pad for the annual International Bognor Birdman competition.

We have a broad range of school options and plenty of recreational facilities for families. One of the best is Hotham Park in the centre of town, which has plenty to entertain the young ones, including a crazy golf course, a miniature railway and a boating lake. It also hosts several major events over the year, including Proms in the Park, a Country Fair and the South Downs Music Festival.

You’ll also find many places to eat and drink, especially along the esplanade and along the High Street, where fresh, locally caught fish feature on the menus. Local shopping is also good, with all the major chains you’d hope to find and some quirky independent shops too.
