Overview

About the property

4 bedroom, 3 bathroom detached house with private garden and beach access

A stunning 1950's beach house, quirky, artistic and different, which has been featured in many magazines. This house has been remodelled and decorated with a lot of love and care. It is meant to feel like a proper home from home and not a typical holiday house. There is direct access to the sea and beach at the end of the garden. The house is located within easy reach of Goodwood Racecourse, the famous Chichester Theatre, the fabulous Pallant House Gallery and the South Downs.

There are 3 double bedrooms, 1 twin bedroom and 3 bathrooms (2 ensuite). All the beds are fully made up for your arrival with high quality linen and bed toppers. Towels are supplied.

The master bedroom has its own balcony with an amazing sea view. 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 an oven, fridge, microwave , full range of cooking utensils, dishwasher, washing machine and separate tumble dryer. Fully stocked with tableware, cutlery, loo rolls, cleaning products, dishwasher tablets etc.

There is a smart TV, an Apple TV with Netflix and a DVD player. Free wifi throughout the house with fast internet. There's also a large selection of art and photography books 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 gates and there is off street parking for 4 cars. There is an outside table and chairs to seat 8 people on the decking at the rear of the house. We also have a selection of deck chairs.

There is a summer house in the garden for quiet moments or romantic drinks, lots of beautiful art books to browse through. There is even an outside bath with hot water for washing the sand off your wetsuits when you come off the beach!

The beach is ideal for swimming and popular for wind surfing, paddle boarding and kite surfing. It is the same beach as West Wittering but in a less crowded and more peaceful section of the beach. You can walk along the beach for miles, all the way to the famous East Head Dunes which is owned by the National Trust.

The local shops are in East Wittering, a 5 minute drive away. There's a fantastic local butchers and fishmongers with the catch of the day, and a well stocked Co-op with most of the day to day items that you might need. Waitrose and M&S are in Chichester about a 20 minute drive away. Waitrose does home deliveries to the house if you pre-order.

The owner has a separate, self contained annexe at the front of the house which she uses from time to time as an office. It has its own entrance and does not intrude on your privacy. The property manager, Marilyn, lives nearby and is always on hand to help if needed.

About Crena

I'm a professional photographer working in London and Paris.

Crena purchased this house in 2009

Why Crena chose Bracklesham Bay

I had the opportunity to buy this uniquely located property in 2009 and jumped at the chance. I just love being able to walk out of the garden and along the beach with my dog. The house has a lovely warm vibe in summer and winter.

What makes this house unique

It's not often you find a house that has the beach right 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 along the beach to East Head. If you just want to relax you can't beat sitting in the garden or on the balcony and looking out to sea with a little glass of wine!

Stunning house with amazing views

  • 5 of 5

Me, my husband and 2 children stayed at the Beach House for a week. What a truly amazing experience. The house itself is fabulous, and unbelievably well equipped. There is everything you could possibly need. The views of the coast are stunning, what a way to wake up every morning. Thank you again Crena x

Beautiful house in amazing location

  • 5 of 5

As four couples we had a fantastic stay in this eclectically furnished house where we noticed different design details each day. The position is a dream and the views from the main bedroom and reception rooms could not be improved. It was a delight to hear the sound of the waves receding across the shingle and we loved the fact we could walk straight out on to the beach. We would definitely recommend this house and would love to visit again.

We've just arrived home from a glorious week staying in this stunning house. Returning next year, if not before! Exceptional interiors and situated right on the beach; you couldn't ask for more.
