Art Deco Style Family House | 4 Reception Rooms | 4 Bedrooms – 2 Bathrooms | Hand Built Kitchen/Breakfast Room | GF Cloakroom & Utility Room | Detached Garage | Mature South Westerly Garden | Many Original Features | Favoured Private Sea EstateA particularly stylish detached character house, located on Rustington’s sought after private Sea Estate.
A most attractive Art Deco style family house, constructed circa 1930, and offering extensive well-planned accommodation. The property has been sympathetically updated and refurbished in recent years, retaining a great deal of the property’s original character. Being one of only five ‘Art Deco’ houses on the Sea Estate, we anticipate strong interest in this rare opportunity.
Refurbished to a high standard with notable enhancements in energy efficient and cost saving improvements, including; a replacement low energy boiler feeding a hot water ring main, thus reducing unnecessary cold water in the system, ‘evacuated’ solar tubes on the roof top contribute to the water heating, increased levels of insulation and replacement aluminium windows throughout with a polar glass filter. The consequential benefits of these improvements is reflected in the EPC rating of C.
Additional features include, a bespoke hand built kitchen, a magnificent pair of reclaimed Art Deco double doors between the dining and family room, two sun balconies and a secluded south westerly garden.
