Inside: This stunning and spacious six bedroom house is on the exclusive Aldwick Bay private estate which was created in the 1920s to give city residents the perfect coastal escape. It is now a highly-desirable and sought-after location on this private stretch of beach, just two miles from the centre of Bognor Regis. Sea Crest has a state-of-the-art kitchen, a principal bedroom suite with a sun terrace and dressing room with built-in wardrobes. There are four bedrooms, a snug, study, sun room, sitting room, games room and utility room as well as a formal dining room which makes it the ultimate family home with plenty of rooms for guests and entertaining.

Outside: The manicured rear lawn leads down to the heated pool, which has an electrically-operated solar cover, surrounded by sun terraces on which to relax and drink in the sea views. Take a stroll onto the private beach, and dry off in the pool house, or organise a barbecue in the outdoor kitchen with mains gas. There is an integral garage with room for up to six cars – for all those guests! - and additional storage in timber sheds at the front and side of the house. The only question that remains is with all this why would you ever want to leave?
