Astons of Sussex are very pleased to offer for sale this charming, detached, spacious family home.
‘The Hermitage’ is believed to date back to the 1920/30s, retaining many original features, with well-proportioned family accommodation, and occupying a mature, secluded plot in a favourable location on the west side of Selsey, adjacent to the tennis and bowls club and close to amenities and shops.
Set out over two floors, you will find a good-sized kitchen with fitted oak units and range cooker, lounge, including a wood-burning stove, dining room, breakfast room/family room, utility room, study, ground- floor shower room and a sun loggia at the front of the property overlooking the garden.
Upstairs are four large bedrooms and two bathrooms; the family bathroom features a Victorian-style roll-top bath.
‘The Hermitage’ is fully insulated and benefits from double glazing and gas central heating. There is a double-length garage with power and light and additional parking at the front of the property for several vehicles.
This delightful property is complemented by the gardens, which are a particular feature, the main front area comprising a substantial lawn with inset tree and flower border surrounds. Additional gravel paths with flower and shrub borders to either side lead to the east-facing rear garden, comprising areas of lawn with raised flower and shrub surrounds and a raised circular brick patio area nestling among mature trees and shrubs.
Internal inspection is recommended.
Selsey has a rich historical heritage and records show it was mentioned in the Doomsday Book.
The name Selsey is derived from the Saxon Seals-ey and can be interpreted as the Isle of Sea Calves (better known as seals).
It has a wealth of wildlife, beautiful landscapes, and with Pagham Harbour Nature Reserve close by, it is a great place to get away from it all.
There are good transport links to neighbouring villages and Chichester which lies about eight miles to the north.
Guide price £489,995.
