Full description

Situated on the sought-after Elmer Sands Private Estate is this iconic Art Deco style detached property. Dating back to the 1930's, it is understood to have been built for a sea captain, hence its ocean liner shape. The property has been sympathetically refurbished and extended by the existing owners.

The versatile and well-proportioned accommodation is arranged over three floors. The dining room, kitchen and a double bedroom with en-suite are on the ground floor.

On the first floor a further three bedrooms can be found, as well as a bathroom/WC. The principal reception is located on the top floor of the property and offers 360¿degree views from the balconies. There are fantastic sea views across the rock islands towards the Isle of Wight to the west and towards Beachy Head to the east. Three Decks is an iconic landmark building.

Outside, a driveway provides off-road parking for a number of vehicles. The enclosed garden envelopes the property to two sides and enjoys a south and west aspect.

Private Estate Charge: We understand the private estate charge is approximately £150 pa.

Council Tax Band: E



Elmer Sands is an idyllic estate which adjoins the beach and has a private boatyard, recreation area and sandy coves created by the rock islands at low tide.

An unique detached house offering stunning sea views.


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.
