    About this property

    • Between West Wittering village and the ultra-prime beachfront properties of East Strand is a band of open countryside. This is where Kite and Kestrel stand, enjoying among the most far-reaching and uninterrupted views of any property in West Wittering.

      Kestrel is a four-bedroom, three-bathroom house of 3074 square feet, set over three floors. The first-floor kitchen/dining/living space connects to a large, east-facing roof terrace, from which an external staircase leads to the garden.

      Step into the entrance foyer and it becomes clear that for a four-bedroom home, Kestrel has a substantial floor area. An open-tread staircase rises up through a roof-height central void. Arriving at Kestrel's first floor you step into a dining area, kitchen and living space that spans the width and 12.5-metre depth of the house. The dining area sits under a void reaching to the roof, punctuated by a glass bridge above. The kitchen area is a sociable space designed around a large central island.

      The first floor is characterized by large areas of glazing, with views north to the Downs, three tall windows looking east, and an almost entirely glazed end wall to the living area framing views of the coast. On two sides there is the opportunity to slide open glazing, blurring the relationship between inside and outside spaces. The first outside area is a spacious roof terrace that welcomes the rising sun; the second is a 6.5-metre-wide south-facing balcony.

      The entire second floor is made up of a Sky Room suite. A glass bridge crosses the central atrium, connecting the bedroom to a dressing room and bathroom. In the bedroom a triangular apex window has wonderful views of the coastal landscape, and two huge top-hung roof lights lift up to create an internal balcony ideal for watching the sun rise.

      The ground floor provides three further bedrooms, each with its own access to a private terrace through full-height sliding doors. The principal bedroom on the ground floor benefits from a dressing area and en-suite shower room. There is an impressive family bathroom with walk-in shower and large free-standing bath. Access to the internal double garage is provided through a boot/laundry room.


      Kestrel occupies the eastern plot, with aspects to the south, east and north. The property is entered through a sliding electric gate, which leads to a parking courtyard and double garage. There is access on both sides of the property to the private, south-facing garden.


      Kite and Kestrel have no neighbours, and the setting is rural without being isolated. A car isn't needed to benefit from the wonderful outdoor lifestyle this area has to offer, with its famous watersports beach and nature reserve close by. The village life of West Wittering is a walk away, while a cycle path leads to the pubs and restaurants of East Wittering. And while you can walk to the beach, Kite and Kestrel are set far enough back for protection from winter storms.

    Kestrel will represent a truly sensational home. I love the attention to detail evident in every aspect of the build. The dedication that has gone into the design is very apparent and it creates a fabulous living space with panoramic views wherever you are in the house.
