If you’ve been to the beaches on the south coast you will have heard of West Wittering, one of the UK’s most popular sandy beaches and a firm favourite with families throughout the south.
The surrounding waterways and countryside depict Great Britain at its very best with views to die for over Chichester Harbour to the South Downs beyond.
Many who visit this part of the country would be forgiven for thinking that living in this part of the country is the reserve of retierees, but Brightwater is set to change all that. This new contemporary house with direct harbour frontage and access to the ‘Ichenor Reach’ of Chichester Harbour has been designed by the much acclaimed and award winning architect Des Ewing.
The principle living spaces on the ground floor are open-plan, taking full advantage of the sun, light and views. Break points have been designed where walls can be introduced to create further separate living rooms if desired. The cost for all this luxury in such a stunning location – a cool £3.25m – the perfect celebrity retreat.
Lets take a closer look at this stunning contemporary waterside home.
A striking cutting edge contemporary house with direct harbour frontage and truly outstanding, unrestricted panoramic views.
Words cannot adequately describe the attention to detail and quality that has been lavished upon the building of this superb property, but we can say that the traditional building methods and high quality of craftsmanship will be immediately apparent.
Upon arrival, one is greeted within the large vaulted hallway, home to a splendid helical staircase finished in walnut to match the flooring that runs throughout the principal reception areas and the walnut doors throughout. Glass plays an important roll in this house allowing light to pass through and to provide occupiers with unobstructed views. The hall is open to the vast open-plan living room/dining-room/kitchen that will surely become the focus of family life and also leads to the two additional living rooms and cloakroom. The expansive kitchen forms an integral feature of the main living areas and there is also a separate utility room.
There are five good double bedrooms all with en-suite bathrooms, including the master bedroom suite that benefits from “his and her” en-suite bathrooms. All bathrooms are beautifully tiled to strict tolerances and contain fittings from Villeroy & Boch, Hansgrohe and Crosswater. All five bedrooms have large fully fitted and lined fitted wardrobe cupboards, whilst the master bedroom has 17ft of luxuriously fitted cupboards incorporating extensive hanging spaces, drawers and a dressing table – all discreetly fitted behind smoked glass sliding doors in the dressing area of the bedroom suite.
Easy access by water to the beach, moorings, nearby marinas, Chichester Yacht Club and Itchenor Sailing Club.
The mainly level gardens, with direct access to the water, extend to half an acre. On the harbour side they have fabulous panoramic views up and down the harbour, are laid mainly to lawn and there is a large terrace adjoining the house.
The garden runs down to ‘mean high water’ from where one can launch a dinghy directly into the water at high tide. There is a gate leading to the coastal path that also provides access to ‘Westlands Hard’ giving access to the water at all stages of the tide.
Chichester Harbour is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (ANOB), adjoining the Solent, located less than 2 hours drive from central London and south of the Roman city of Chichester and Goodwood Race Course, the renowned motor racing circuit and festival theatre.
The harbour has moorings, marinas and numerous yacht clubs providing exceptional leisure facilities for keen sailing and boating enthusiasts. The ‘Blue Flag’ sandy beaches of West Wittering are at the mouth of the harbour, a mere 4 miles away by road for those not wishing to use the water.
