Waterside The South East

California dreaming by the coast in Chichester

Waterside near Chichester is a cool eco-retreat with a laid-back California vibe. Set in 1.5 acres of artfully landscaped grounds, it invites you to relax and enjoy its serenity.

A silver timber-clad hideaway, featured on Grand Designs, Waterside is cantilevered over a natural swimming pond and comprises two buildings joined via a glass walkway over the water. This unusual detail sets the tone for a thrilling stay in a unique property.

Enter the house into the jaw-dropping triple-height atrium, with its aesthetically pleasing minimalism and abundance of natural light. The galleried landings above you are reached by a beautiful, curving staircase, a work of art in itself.

Gaze across the pond from the lounge, get cosy in the snug in front of one of the property’s four log burners, or gather sociably round the kitchen island. Wherever you wander, you will love the soothing neutral décor, the use of natural materials and the understated confidence of this amazing property.

Outside, in a garden that evokes the coast, find the garden cabin and dining areas amidst the pebbles and pathways, weathered boardwalks snaking around the water, and soft grasses swaying in the breeze. With a hot tub, tennis court and children’s play area, you can fill your days in this delightful garden, while a walk through the surrounding Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty brings you to quiet coastal paths and stunning seascapes.

When the days draw to a close, climb that curved staircase and don’t be surprised that the bedrooms offer the same stylish comfort as the rest of this wonderful house.
