Completely renovated in late 2016, The Palm House is a luxury three bedroom detached house on a quiet residential private estate in the delightful seaside village of East Preston, 400m from the beach – first available for holiday rentals in 2017. Perfect for families wishing to find a ‘home-from-home’ on the Sussex coast. It is a lovely place for adults and children to relax either outside in the ample garden (with a large dining area, BBQ, grassed and patio areas for children to safely play), or in the comfortable living room which opens out to a large front patio, via sliding doors, allowing enjoyment of the sun throughout the day . The property has a gated front drive which means the whole outdoor area, surrounding the house is secure for children and dogs. The lounge includes a 42” flatscreen with BT TV (with BT Sport) and fast Wi-fi broadband. A log burner provides additional warmth during the winter.
The house comfortably sleeps a family of up to six, with two large double rooms(one king, one super king) and a triple bunk room. It boasts a luxuriously appointed Porcelanosa bathroom with full length bath, separate power-jet shower cubicle and Bosch appliance kitchen. The kitchen has a breakfast bar area, and open plan living/dining area with convenient access to both front and rear garden /patio areas via bi-fold doors to front and patio doors to rear. The house has a comfortable ‘beach’ style feel, perfect for English summer holidays as well as being a cosy retreat in the cooler winter months. There is off-street parking for 2 cars.
The small village of East Preston is well appointed with two convenience stores, 3 pubs and excellent Chinese and Indian restaurants, as well as Fish & Chips takeaways all a short 5 minute walk away. Within a short drive are large supermarkets including Waitrose (Rustington), Asda, and Sainsbury’s.
In addition to the local village restaurants, there are highly rated traditional English pub/restaurants in Patching (World’s End), Arundel (The Rabbit), Littlehampton (East Beach Cafe), The Crabshack (Worthing), Royal Oak (Fulking) – all within 10-20 minutes drive.
East Preston is superbly located for very easy access (by car – all within 20-30 minutes drive) to many well known towns and family-friendly amenities on the beautiful Sussex coast, including neighbouring historic Arundel (castle), Littlehampton (2 miles ), Brighton , Chichester , Goodwood, Petworth, Storrington, Steyning and Upper Beeding. Bognor Regis and its family-friendly Butlins holiday complex is 20 mins away. There is a good train service offering access to London within 90 minutes.
Staying closer to ‘home’, the local beach is quiet and clean and makes a lovely place for a relaxing family day out. The walk along the beach in either direction is delightful and The Bluebird Cafe situated along the coast at Kingston Gorse is around 30 minutes walk away and is worth a visit.
