West Street House is a superb example of a quintessential Georgian village house set only minutes from West Beach and within large mature gardens containing numerous outbuildings, a paved terrace, walled kitchen garden, off-road parking and a coach house with PP to convert. This beautifully presented and outstanding family home blends its period features and modern design with a formal and contrasting relaxed lifestyle by the sea!

Formal reception rooms greet you from either side of the hall, the sitting room has been opened up to create a lovely and light feel through its triple aspect. Characterful old flagstones lead from the central hall through to a snug/playroom with a gorgoeous timber parquet floor and a hand crafted ‘cooks’ kitchen with well- designed storage, granite work surfaces and plenty of space for eating. The
kitchen also benefits from a triple aspect view of the extensive gardens and flows on to a large terrace, perfect for entertaining, though French doors A further outside door opens onto a paved terrace perfect for entertaining.

A glazed rear hall is perfect for storing hat coats and wellies or beach/sailing gear, a dual cellar offers extra storage and space for an extensive wine collection. A very wide staircase leads up to an open landing with feature sash window letting light flood on to the landing. Echoing the reception rooms below, there are two sizeable front bedrooms, the main of which has a walk in wardrobe and ensuite bathroom with Westerly sea views. There is a further double bedroom and family bathroom to the main part of the house, to the rear is a walkthrough bedroom leading to a fifth bedroom with views out over the garden.

West Street is undoubtedly the premier and most attractive street in Selsey and leads directly to West Beach. With its rich History including having the reputation of the being where Christianity first set foot in the UK, Selsey is a traditional Crab fishing seaside village, it has existed since Saxon times, and is derived from the Old English meaning Seal's Island. The High Street offers 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 LondonHeathrow.

The front door is approached on foot via a pretty front garden leading from the road, gated off-road courtyard parking provides secure space for a number of vehicles. The main garden at West Street House is laid mainly to lawn and wraps around the rear of the house, it is bounded by mature trees and shrubs and has a number of brick and timber built outbuildings one possibly for conversion to an office (subject to the usual consents). A paved terrace is
west facing and a bit of a suntrap, perfect for entertaining right outside the kitchen. A superb flint walled kitchen garden is an exciting addition to a house of this age and offers a ‘good-life’ feel to those more green fingered amongst us. A former coach house, currently used for storage, has recently been granted consent to be converted to a two bedroom annexe(16/02638/DOM).
