A home for life?


It is said that ‘an Englishman’s home is his castle’ providing not just comfort and security, but a sense of pride and of course, investment.

However, according to the statisticians out there, this pride of ownership ebbs and flows over a 7 year period – the average time-span between house moves, creating business for estate agents, builders and decorators alike!

But not everyone feels the urge to move quite as often. Take for example the owners of this significantly improved detached house in Felpham. They have been in occupation for 37 years!

During that time they have brought up a family, seen them leave and now help out with the childcare during their retirement time – the circle of life!

Asked why they moved there in the first place they mention access to schools, the village and the sea.

And why did they stay? Apparently they liked it!

Several kitchen face-lifts later, the bathroom has been extended, an en-suite provided to the main bedroom, a utility room has been added and a ground floor bedroom/study has appeared.

So what is there in the house? Potentially four bedrooms (one used as a study), a family bathroom plus en-suite shower.

A lounge and dining room, plus kitchen/breakfast room along with the utility room and cloakroom comprise the remainder of the internal accommodation, whist outside there is a garage, timber workshop and summerhouse.

All of this for an asking price of £359,950 and ready to move into.

So if you are looking for that ideal ‘family home’ – somewhere to walk straight into and feel comfortable – you could look a lot further than this property, offered for sale through May’s – The Village Agent.

You may think it sounds too good to be true, but why not see for yourself.
