Guide price

Bedrooms: 5
Cool and contemporary, this exclusive beachfront home enjoys a prime setting on Shoreham Beach, within walking distance of village amenities and yet peacefully situated overlooking the foreshore towards the sea. The property is of a recent construction and has been architecturally designed with clean lines and a modern décor scheme to create a uniquely appointed home with a wealth of light and space. Much of the natural light comes from two walls of sliding glazed doors to the rear which overlook the beach and have a favourable southerly aspect, ensuring natural light throughout much of the day. Premium materials and character elements have been skilfully incorporated into the design, including a feature pool within the entrance hallway, underfloor heating throughout the ground floor, a solid wood staircase with glass banister and high-quality bathrooms.

The accommodation is deceptively spacious from the front, extending to over 4500 sq ft across two floors which are arranged with the main living space upstairs to best maximise the views over the sea. The design of the home is perfectly configured for entertaining, with a variety of reception spaces, and a guest bedroom suite on the ground floor which is ideal for overnight guests.

The ground floor accommodation is centred around the imposing entrance hall, which provides an inviting first impression. This leads to a main bedroom with en suite shower room, two further double bedrooms and a family bathroom. In addition there is a utility room and cloakroom with w.c., internal access to the garage and a guest suite with sitting room, bathroom and bedroom, plus its own front door, which could be used by an au pair or as an income generator.

Upstairs there is a fabulous open plan sitting/dining room and kitchen, which is galleried and overlooks a void onto the entrance hall below. The kitchen has been designed to encompass an array of fantastic storage and fitted with two dishwashers which are perfect for entertaining. In one corner there is a balcony which looks out to sea, perfect for sundowner drinks and entertaining. Steps lead up to the principal bedroom, which is a very good size and has an en suite shower room.


The rear garden is truly stunning, with views over the foreshore towards the beach. Most of the garden is occupied by a fabulous heated swimming pool inset within a sandstone terrace, with space around the outside for sun loungers and a dining table and chairs. The white enclosing walls and elevations of the house give the garden a Mediterranean feel. To the front the house has a striking cubist design and is approached by a paved driveway leading up to the attached garage, with a pretty shrub garden to the front.


Old Fort Road is Shoreham's most popular residential setting, backing onto the beach with lovely sea views. Shoreham town centre is 2.4 miles distant which has farmers' and artisan markets, shops, a health centre, library and restaurants, which can be accessed via the award-winning Adur Ferry glass footbridge. On the south side of the bridge there a number of paths and trails along the shoreline. Brighton city centre is about 8 miles along the coast road, and the A283 allows access to the A27, A23 and Gatwick. Local schooling options include both Shoreham and Lancing colleges, and Shoreham Beach Primary. Shoreham-By-Sea train station is 2.4 miles by car (1.1 miles by the footbridge) with services to Brighton, Southampton and London Victoria.
