A Grade II Listed, former coastguard cottage with stunning panoramic views over The Solent across to the Isle of Wight.

1 Homer Cottages is a charming, period coastal cottage, offering up-to-date interiors and eclectic styling to provide a unique home for those with a dream to live beside the sea. Entering the property at the rear, a skylight allows natural light to fill the reception hall, which gives access into a dining room where the feature fireplace has an inset wood-burning stove, with timber beam over and ornate tiling surround. This reception room opens into a bright kitchen, which is fitted with modern Shaker-style units and has space for undercounter appliances, and adjacent is the cosy sitting room, with both rooms enjoying the sunny south-westerly aspect.

A staircase from the hallway rises to the first floor where there are two bedrooms, featuring decorative fireplaces, and a stylish bathroom, with a roll-top bathtub and vintage fittings. A second set of stairs leads up to the top floor bedroom in the eaves, which has a modern en suite shower room. The upper floors of the cottage allow outstanding views, not only across the sea, but also to the surrounding open countryside.


With its distinctive slate roof and elevations, the cottage is approached via a coastal lane onto a driveway where there is space for parking and access to a garage. An enclosed, private garden is situated across the driveway from the house and has an area of lawn, with mature shrubs and perennial plants, and both paved and gravelled terracing for outdoor dining. To the rear of the home, there is a courtyard area with two outbuildings, one with plumbing serving as a utility room and the other used for storage.


Situated at the end of a quiet lane, at the most south-westerly point of the seaside town of Selsey, 1 Homer Cottages, enjoys an unspoilt setting combining the pleasures of both coast and countryside. Famed for its Selsey Crab, the town has a proud fishing heritage, as well as miles of natural beaches offering a huge variety of wildlife, with the RSPB reserves of Pagham Harbour and Medmerry being home to countless species of birds and wildfowl. Every day amenities are provided in the town, with a more comprehensive range of shopping, cultural and leisure facilities available in Chichester to the north. The city also offers a mainline railway station with services to London Victoria via Gatwick (approximately 90 minutes) and the A27 provides access to Brighton the east and Southampton to the west. Primary and secondary schooling is available in Selsey, with independent schools in the vicinity including Westbourne House and the Prebendal School.


From the A27, exit onto the B2145 and follow the road for approximately 8 miles into Selsey, then turn right onto West Street. Follow West Street to the end of the lane where the property will be found.
