The property occupies a private and secluded location within the extremely well regarded and highly sought after Willowhayne Estate, and is within half a mile of the Willowhayne private beach and greensward, and close to the village centres of East Preston and Rustington, and also Angmering station with a mainline service. The Willowhayne Estate originated in the 1930s, and it is believed that The Spires was constructed by Godfrey, the builder, in the 1940s. The house is certainly built in an unusual style, being a mixture of painted brick and stonework, with a range of interesting architectural details including dovecotes, turrets, balconies and roof terraces. Many of the original internal features have been retained, including oak floors, and the original oak framed leaded light windows. A particular feature of the house are the roof terraces, over three storeys, culminating in a crows' nest turret with superb views across the gardens. The swimming pool complex was subsequently installed, with a large kidney shaped pool, entertaining and partying area, extensive terracing and an excellent party room/kitchen.
In later years the current owners have provided a self-contained annexe, providing staff or dependent relative accommodation.
With much to offer, it is highly recommended for viewing.
The Willowhayne Estate is a highly regarded and much sought after private estate, in the village of East Preston, bordering the beach and South Coast to the south. East Preston itself has a small range of village facilities, whilst more comprehensive shopping facilities are available at Rustington, whilst Chichester, Arundel and Brighton provide town and city facilities. With the beach close by, some of the principal leisure activities are swimming, sailing and surfboarding, whilst other facilities at the East Preston Sports Club include badminton, tennis and bowls. Each year East Preston holds its annual Festival, whilst cultural facilities are available with theatres and cinemas in Brighton, the annual Festivities in Arundel, and the internationally renowned Festival Theatre at Chichester. The area is highly regarded for its walking countryside, with the newly formed South Downs National Park a few miles to the north, with hundreds of acres of South Downs countryside and long range paths including the South Downs Way, with further walking of course along the beach. Angmering station is within 5 minutes by car from where there is a mainline service to Brighton in 1/2 an hour and to London Victoria in 1 1/2 hours.
