Gate Lodge is a delightful detached character cottage with
brick and flint elevations under a partly tiled and thatched
roof, set in an idyllic location close to West Wittering village
centre and with views out over farmland to Chichester
Harbour, Portsdown Hill and the Isle of Wight. The original
thatched cottage is believed to date back to 1924, with the
later part of the cottage added in the 1970's and we
understand that this was further extended in 2000. Set on 3 sides by open farmland and on a quiet private lane, this
cottage is an enviable location just minutes from the coastal
pathways of Chichester Harbour and West Wittering beach.
The entrance hall to the cottage has herringbone wood
flooring and offers storage, as well as access to a ground floor cloakroom. The sitting room is set in the thatched part of the cottage and benefits from an open fireplace for those cosy winter evenings which leads into the adjacent dining room. The entrance hall also leads to the triple aspect kitchen/family room. The kitchen area to this room has herringbone wood flooring and a range of country style floor and wall units with a tiled worktop and splashbacks. The family area looks out over the gardens and, with the lowering of a hedge, could offer views over the farmland towards Chichester Harbour. In addition to this, there is a useful utility room accessed from the entrance hall, providing additional floor and wall standing units with a wooden work surface and ceramic butler style
sink. The first floor can be accessed from two staircases, one leading up from the thatched end of the cottage and the other from the entrance hall. There are four bedrooms to the first floor, along with a well-appointed luxury family bathroom with separate bath and shower, with underfloor heating and marble tiling. The triple aspect master bedroom offers a spectacular west facing view across to Chichester Harbour, with the chalk cliffs of Portsdown Hill and the Isle of Wight both visible from this vantage point. The master bedroom also has a useful vanitary unit tucked into a corner.
