Birdham House is an impressive beachside family residence offering extensive accommodation and wonderful views over The Solent to the Isle of Wight, and The Spinnaker Tower to the west. With 6243 sqft (including the garages) this is a fabulous property for gathering of extended family or just for entertaining.

Thought to have been built in the 1920s the current owners have carried out extensive refurbishments works during their time at the property and this well-presented home now provides spacious and hugely flexible living quarters, with the ground floor accommodation also providing the opportunity to create an annexe for a dependant relative or
visiting guests. All rear facing rooms afford stunning sea views and a fabulous garden room provides the ideal space to relax and enjoy this idyllic setting. The active Selsey fishing fleet can be seen at close quarters from the end of the gardens.

On the first floor, there are four bedrooms, one
being the master suite, which enjoys an en-suite and two walk-in dressing rooms, one of which is fitted with an array of wardrobes. A bright and airy study can also be found on this level. The fifth bedroom is on the ground floor, with access to a 'Jack & Jill' style shower-room.

Selsey is a traditional seaside village, with the main High Street offering an array of shops and
restaurants, with schools, doctors and dentist, whilst to the eastern side a smaller parade of shops also caters for everyday life. From the Medmerry in the west, which is the RSPB's newest nature reserve, to Church Norton in the east, this stretch of coastline offers wonderful walks and off road cycling. For the water sports enthusiast, highly regarded scuba diving, fishing and a perfect environment for paddle boarding and windsurfing some of the South's most
popular beaches on its doorstep, Selsey makes an ideal place to live or retire to for a more relaxed pace of life or better outdoor living.

For those wanting the main city shops an excellent regular bus service takes you to the Cathedral City about 8 miles to the north and offers extensive shopping and leisure facilities including the popular Chichester Festival Theatre and The Pallant Galleries.

The West Sussex area hosts events including horse racing at Glorious Goodwood and motor sports, taking place at Goodwood House and the Goodwood circuit.

Chichester railway station provides access along the coast, to London Victoria via Gatwick Airport and, via Havant, to London Waterloo. The A27 provides access along the coast, to the A3 (M) and northwards to the M25 and London Heathrow.

Wooden gates and a wall enclose the front of the property, which has areas of lawn and flower borders and a large driveway, laid to block paving providing ample parking for a number of vehicles. This is in addition to two generously sized garages. The rear garden is paved and landscaped to provide a low maintenance area, perfect for sitting and outside dining and entertaining.
