One of the original homes to be built in the 1930's, the eponymous Willowhayne House occupies one of the most generous plots on the estate with grounds totalling approximately one acre. Enjoying a southerly aspect to the English Channel, the property offers balanced yet versatile accommodation amounting to over 6,700 sq ft.

The Willowhayne Private Sea Estate was created in 1930 when a private company was appointed to purchase land and develop the area for a select number of private homes. Located on the southern side of Tamarisk Way are a number of substantial dwellings that have access to the greensward leading to the pebbled foreshore.

The village of East Preston has a population of around 5,500. It lies roughly half way between Littlehampton and Worthing, on the south coast between the south downs and the English Channel. The Estate is situated in East Preston village and close to the well served village of Rustington, a mile and a half of Angmering rail station with mainline train services to London Victoria (journey time from 88 minutes), Gatwick Airport and Brighton. Close to hand is the cathedral city of Chichester, approximately 16 miles distant, with the Festival Theatre, Pallant House Gallery plus a very good range of high street stores together with restaurants, cafes and bars and Chichester Harbour which offers facilities for marine enthusiasts. In this vicinity are the West Dean and Goodwood Estates. The West Dean Estate is known notably for its college, offering a wide range of courses on an extensive range of subjects for all abilities. The Goodwood Estate is home to horse racing at
"the world's most beautiful racecourse", and the global motorsports events, Festival of Speed and Revival with golf and aviation also catered for.

Ham Manor Golf Club and a Virgin Health Club and Spa are 2 miles away.

The grounds are privately gated and approached via a sweeping in/out drive with lawns and pond.
