The Coach House adjoins part of a former Victorian rectory located at the very heart of the picturesque village centre close to the parish church. The property was comprehensively refurbished in 2005 creating a superb village home of character ideal for use as either a permanent home or weekend coastal retreat, within a half mile picturesque walk of the National Trust reserve of East Head with its sandy beaches and breath-taking views over Chichester Harbour. The adaptable interior has plenty of character. A vaulted entrance hall with exposed beams has access to a ground floor cloak/shower room ideal for getting changed when returning from the beach. Two south west facing reception rooms include a cosy sitting room with log effect gas fire whilst both rooms have double casement doors opening onto a conservatory which runs the length of the building and provides a sunny, light sitting area with doors opening onto the easily maintained courtyard garden. The kitchen/breakfast room is comprehensively equipped with integrated appliances including an induction hob with integrated touch controls, combination microwave and conventional ovens. A light, airy landing leads to three bedroom suites, each with either their own bathroom or shower room. Outside The partially walled courtyard area to the front of the property is stone flagged and provides parking for up to three vehicles with external lighting on motion sensors. The west facing courtyard garden is almost entirely paved with Indian and York stone for ease of maintenance. A raised planter and borders are stocked with traditional perennials, climbers and herbs. A well-established mature chestnut tree creates an attractive focal point and a shady sitting area. Location The village of West Wittering has an excellent range of amenities including a parish church, primary school, recently reopened village pub, butcher and sailing club. Further shopping facilities are also available in nearby East Wittering and these include a fishmonger, chemist and banking facilities. West Wittering is famous for the sandy beaches of the National Trust reserve at East Head. These are located within about a 1/2 mile walk of the house, providing beautiful walks over the sand dunes and stunning views across the Solent to the Nab Tower and the Isle of Wight. Both the beaches of East and West Wittering are a haven for windsurfers, landboarders and kitesurfers. The waters of Chichester Harbour provide some of the best sailing facilities on the south coast within easy reach of London and there are a number of nearby sailing clubs most notably at West Wittering itself, Itchenor and at Chichester Marina near Birdham. The cathedral city of Chichester is some 8 miles to the north which provides comprehensive amenities arranged partly within the old roman walls and its central pedestrianised area. The city is home to the internationally known Festival Theatre and its companion Minerva Theatre whilst Pallant House Gallery houses one of the most significant modern art collections in the south of England. Other high profile attractions include Glorious Goodwood with its internationally known racecourse and for car enthusiasts its annual Festival of Speed and the Revival Meeting at its historic motor circuit.
