Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Shell Seekers is a charming detached beach house, designed to take full advantage of its bright southerly aspect and fine sea views. At the heart of the house is an old railway carriage. Approached via timber decking, the hall, kitchen and drawing room are arranged so that views of the sea are immediately apparent on entering the house. An indoor pool has glass panelled walls and doors to north and south, and on the first floor, a superb suite of sitting room, bedroom, dressing area and bathroom have been created, with doors to the decked balcony, again divided by a fireplace. There are stunning views from the majority of the rooms.

It should be noted that this property would now benefit from some updating and modernisation.

Located between West Wittering and Selsey, Bracklesham Bay has a shingle and sand beach ideal for bathing, fossil hunting and surfing. There is a thriving local community with a community centre hosting events such as fitness classes and a monthly film night, together with a few shops and restaurants nearby. An interesting variety of local shops and supermarkets, banks, library and medical centre, are found at East Wittering, less than a mile to the west, beyond which will be found the Blue Flag sandy beach of West Wittering. The marinas at Birdham are situated about 4.5 miles and Chichester's mainline railway station and the broad range of shopping, cultural and leisure amenities, including the Festival Theatre, are about 7 miles to the north. The RSPB's newest nature reserve, Medmerry, is found nearby and there are lovely walks and cycle rides emanating literally from the doorstep.

Outside, a decked terrace and landscaped gardens give direct access to the beach. To the rear, the gardens include several 'rooms' and the house may be approached either via a pedestrian gate or a broad pair of timber gates onto a paved area, adjacent to the double garage, with plenty of room for a boat. A wonderful avenue, formed by a Tamarisk clad pergola, runs the length of the garden, leading to the decked area beside the house, with a lawn adjacent. A greenhouse, with planting beds and a vegetable garden with raised planters lie beyond.
