This well-proportioned family home is a superb opportunity to acquire a property with potential for refurbishment within convenient distance of Chichester Marina, Itchenor Sailing Club and the popular sandy beaches of West Wittering. The accommodation is arranged over two floors, with three good reception rooms on the ground floor and a generous kitchen/breakfast room with separate utility room. A ground floor cloaks/shower room provides easily accessible changing facilities after a day on the beach. On the first floor there are four double bedrooms including a 22' long principal bedroom suite with bathroom, whilst the second family bathroom serves the remaining three bedrooms. Outside The house is set well back, screened by well-established gardens planted with mature trees and flowering shrubs. The entrance on Redlands Lane provides access to a gravelled driveway which leads to a casual parking area immediately to the south of the house. This in turn provides access to a timber built garage. From the rear hallway there is access to a sheltered concrete sitting area which opens onto a lightly wooded garden laid to lawn with an attractive display of roses, ferns and flowering shrubs. 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 2.5 miles 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 6.5 miles to the north, providing 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. To the north of Chichester lies the rich and varied countryside of the South Downs National Park with many miles of bridle and footpaths, pretty rural villages and traditional country pubs.
