Beach House with Direct Frontage to the Beach and Views to the Isle Of Wight



Updated: 25-Oct-2016
Beach House, Near. Chichester, West Sussex, UK, Near West and east Wittering

A stunning 1950's beach house, quirky and different, has appeared in many magazines. The sea is at the end of the garden so no excuses not to swim!

Excellent access for Goodwood and the Chichester theatre. Great wind surfing, paddle boarding and kite surfing. We are on the same beach as West Wittering, but less crowded and more peaceful. The local shops are in East Wittering and have everything you need. I have a self contained annexe near the front of the house with its own entrance and which does not intrude on your privacy. My house keeper lives nearby and is always on hand to help if needed.

There are 4 double bedrooms 3 bathrooms all the beds are made up with top end linen and luxury bed toppers. Only one bedroom has a sea view and has an ensuite bathroom. There is a double bedroom with an ensuite on the ground floor with a shower. The 3rd double Bedroom has the use of the same bathroom as the twin bedroom. The kitchen has oven, fridge, microwave, full range of cooking utensils. Fully stocked with plates glasses bowls etc. We supply towels.

TV is a smart tv and has net-flicks there is a DVD player. Fast Internet. We also have a very large selection of art book for your enjoyment . There is constant hot water and very good heating as well as a wood burner fire, so the house is lovely in the winter as well as the summer. The Garden is fully secure with electric gates and there is parking for 4 cars. There is an outside bath with hot water for washing of the sand or relaxing in.

About the Owner

I'm a photographer mostly working in London and Paris. I would like to rent my house out to people who are looking for something a little different from the norm. It's great waking up and having the sea right there in the garden.

A Slice of Beachside Bliss

  • 5 of 5

Starfish is a special kind of heaven. It goes without saying that it has all the practical equipment you would ever need for a smooth-running stay, but it has so much more than that. You are submerged in style from the moment you turn the key and with every inward step comes a new discovery. It has art books, kraken sink plugs, rubber ducks, a robot family photo, a wall of mirrors and lamps of every shade. By the time you reach the garden, your breath has been fully taken away. The owner and her assistant greeted me with warmth and efficiency, sharing local information to add to the enjoyment of my stay. An ice-cream sundae at the nearby Billy’s on the Beach adds to your seaside spirit and a walk along the glorious West Wittering beach, but a short drive away, will make you weak at the knees. Take a jaunt around Chichester Harbour with the water tour out of picturesque Itchenor, or venture a bit further for some naval history in Portsmouth. If all that sounds a bit energetic, rest a while, take in the view from the balcony or the garden gate and simply delight at the moving tide as a jogging, dog-walking world goes quietly by. This place will steal your heart while the sea whispers in your ear. I have had the best time and cannot thank the owner enough for such a deep wallow in Bracklesham Bay smiles.

From the Owner

It's not often you find a house that has the beach at the end of the garden, it's also great having Chichester so near, so one can be a beach bum as well as having a little culture! The sea here is safe, great for swimming, kayaking, paddle boarding and wind surfing. Long walks on the beach to East Head owned by the National trust. Goodwood is close by, also Pallant House Gallery and the Chichester theatre.
