With its distinctive 1930's Art Deco architecture, The House on the Beach offers immaculate, recently renovated and extended, light and airy accommodation, with an 'upside-down' layout providing bedrooms primarily on the ground floor and living spaces on the upper floors.

The arrangement of the rooms offers flexibility to suit a diverse range of family living requirements, as well as welcoming space for entertaining guests or accommodating a dependent relative. On the ground floor, the reception hall gives access to a principal bedroom with an impressive en-suite and feature curved bay window and doors. Two further bedrooms have en-suite facilities with bi-folding doors. All the bedrooms have a southerly sea view. A large library room is fitted with bookshelves and has an adjoining shower room. An additional shower room and a scullery/utility room complete the lower-level accommodation. The Scullery and Library also have their own entrance and could function as a separate annexe - with kitchen, bedroom and shower room.

On the floor above, a light-filled, open-plan kitchen/sitting/breakfast room or informal dining room have direct access to both a balcony and a roof terrace, providing a seamless inside-to-outside living environment with outstanding vistas. An external Art Deco staircase leads from this room to the garden. Fittings include Corian work surfaces, an attractive 'Everhot 90i' stove, and a fitted Neptune bench and sideboard. A second roof terrace is situated on the opposite aspect of the house, taking advantage of the easterly aspect. There is also a bedroom with adjoining dressing room and en-suite at this level of the home, which together could form a guest suite.

On the second floor, a generous living space provides a further sitting/dining/family room with glazed sliding doors to a balcony and a door opening to a wraparound potential roof terrace where elevated panoramic views across the sea can be enjoyed. This generous room could provide a sixth bedroom suite, as there is also a compact shower room on this top floor. All floors have full smart-controlled underfloor heating.

Outside In its idyllic waterside setting, the house offers direct beach access, with a boardwalk providing a route through the garden to the shoreline. The garden has been designed to reflect its seaside setting, with large areas of wild flowers. Colourful beach huts serve as attractive storage sheds with power, light and wired internet service. A paved terrace offers an area for relaxed seating, and further comfort in this beachside setting is provided by an outdoor cloakroom, along with an exterior cupboard in use as a wine cellar. To the front of the house, the paved driveway affords ample parking for vehicles with provision for construction of a garage with a base, electricity and plumbing, already in place. There is also a 3-phase, fast electric car charger installed at the property.

Location Situated at the end of a private estate road, the property is within walking distance of the amenities on offer in the village of Middleton, including a local butcher, hardware store, post office and grocery store. There is also a popular local public house and a coffee shop, whilst those seeking physical activities are catered for at the village sports and social club which offers a gym, fitness classes, tennis courts and a cricket pitch.

For a touch of luxury, the historic Bailiffscourt Hotel is a healthy walk away along the beach, with its deluxe Spa and Pool, as well as fine dining. Sailing enthusiasts can take to the water at the active sailing club in Felpham and in addition to miles of shoreline walks there is also easy access to the north to the stunning countryside of the South Downs National Park. Schooling in the vicinity includes a primary school in nearby Felpham, along with the well-regarded Community College, with several independent schools being available in nearby Chichester.
