Property of the Day: The Breakers, West Sussex
THE PROPERTY: Built in 1936, this late Arts and Crafts home is teeming with Art Deco and period features. The property was one of the first homes to be built on the prestigious marine estate in West Sussex and occupies a principal position on the waterfront. The 6000 square foot property lends itself to entertaining with its six bedrooms, leisure suite and pool, all enjoying the panoramic views over the coast. While the main house is generous in size, the beautifully maintained outdoor space is ideal for summer parties.
THE LOCATION: The Breakers is situated in a coastal hamlet in the Arun district of West Sussex, close to the seaside village of East Preston. Both Chichester and Brighton are nearby and offer a wide range of sporting and recreational activities. If you are searching for something a little different, head to Goodwood where the Festival of Speed is held at the historic motor circuit every year.
THE INTERIOR: The home is filled with unique features. The impressive Arts and Crafts style staircase, the dual aspect drawing room with fireplace and the grand library are all elements that contribute to the grandeur of the property. While the galleried landing and French doors show off the stylish design of the house, there are many simple and contemporary touches such as the modern solid oak furniture and tiled flooring.
WHY WE LOVE IT: The garden, designed in 1936, is based on one of the winners of the Chelsea Flower Show. The outdoor space is stunning, containing rockery beds surrounding a three tiered pond with a bridge and Mediterranean plants.
