St Stephens offers the perfect home for a family, a sanctuary for retirement, or a seaside escape, with up-to-date, flexible-use accommodation arranged over two floors. On the ground floor, a reception room enjoys the warming ambience of a charming fireplace and the mellow tones of rustic wooden beams and doors, along with ample space for dining, creating a comfortable and sociable setting. The bright and spacious kitchen/breakfast room just beyond is fitted with modern wall and base level cabinetry with a breakfast bar unit and an area for informal dining which benefits from views and a route out to the rear garden via glazed sliding doors. There are two bedrooms and a smart shower room at this lower level.
On the floor above, a light-filled sitting room has the advantage of an elevated outlook to the shoreline, with glazed doors opening onto a balcony which offers the ideal spot to relax in the sunshine. The upper level also provides two bedrooms and a well-appointed bathroom, along with a large utility room which might easily serve as a second kitchen. The versatility of the internal layout, along with two separate entrance doorways, affords the option to provide self-contained accommodation on both the ground and first floors.
Marine Drive West is a highly sought-after private residential setting just moments from the beach providing an idyllic location for shoreline walks and watersports. A wealth of amenities can be accessed just half a mile distant at East Wittering where there are restaurants and cafés, a good selection of independent shops and convenience stores, along with a primary school, medical centre, dental practice and a chemist. For sailing enthusiasts, Birdham Pool Marina and Chichester Marina just beyond has excellent facilities. Chichester is just seven miles away, offering an extensive range of shopping, leisure and cultural facilities, including the renowned Chichester Festival Theatre. Horse racing and motoring events can be found at Goodwood, along with a Health Club and golf course. There are many well-regarded primary and secondary schooling options within easy reach.
A lawned area and a brick wall, with hedging, fronts the roadway providing a degree of privacy, with a driveway to each side and an additional parking area alongside the porch entrance to the home. The rear garden provides several outdoor settings, with opportunities for outdoor dining and relaxation and offers a sheltered seating area for inclement days. There is an area laid to lawn framed by mature shrubs in beds to the boundaries and at the far margin a gate gives access through to a gravelled garden space. A charming timber outbuilding is situated beside this outside seating area and provides flexible uses, including a home office, if required, and additional storage is offered in a detached garage.
