The accommodation (2,081 sq ft) is arranged over 3 floors and includes: entrance hall leading to the cloakroom/WC, dining room with French-style doors to garden, sitting room (also with doors opening onto the patio and garden) and spacious kitchen/breakfast room that has ample room for a good sized table and chairs. The well fitted kitchen has a range of integral Bosch appliances, including a dishwasher, washer/dryer, fridge/freezer, stainless steel double oven, large hob and extractor fan.

Stairs from the first floor lead to the second floor, where bedroom 2 (with fitted wardrobes), bedroom 5 and another shower room can all be found.

Outside, to the front of the property is a small garden area planted with numerous shrubs and flowers and a driveway which leads to the single integral garage.

There is a pond and an area of ancient woodland behind the property which cannot be developed. There are also two solar panels on the roof of the property.



The attractive coastal village of Birdham offers some local facilities including a marina, primary school, convenience store and petrol station. A further range of facilities (including a GP surgery) and quality independent shops can be found at East Wittering, approximately 2 1/2 miles distant.

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.
