South Coast Residence for Sale

1 minute to the beach, 5 minutes to the South Downs

6 bedrooms plus a self-contained granny flat

After renting this beautiful house out to holidaymakers from all round the world these past 15 years, we have finally (and somewhat reluctantly) decided to sell. We chose to settle in our other house in Waterloo Belgium instead!

It was a tough call because with Elm Farm, situated in Rustington, West Sussex, you have a fully secluded large and quiet back garden, although you're also just 5 minutes by foot from the thriving local shops, the Pub and the beach. And it's the perfect escape from the city: Just 90 minutes by train from London Victoria and 20 minutes to Brighton or Chichester.

It's on the market for £995,000 with agents Graham Butt at: Elm Farm Property Details

The front and back are 'somewhat' different

Yes it's true. One of the quirks of a house  originally built in the 15th century, is that it's been successively modernised. The elegant facade was added around 1820 (and considered very fashionable at the time) although it looks a little bleak in this photo taken in February 2013!

Walking into the long central corridor gives you direct access to 3 of the 4 reception rooms, the kitchen and of course the large 45 meter long garden.

For lots of interior photos, visit the rental website:

The roadside length is 65 metres,  and the carriage driveway makes parking for 5 or 6 cars easy.

Everyone leaves nice comments in the guestbook. It's a cosy house at any time of year.
