Join a sunny seaside community on the Sussex coast, with a new home at Manor Gardens
Sitting at the southernmost point of the Manhood Peninsula, a small island connected to mainland Sussex, is the charming seaside town of Selsey, home to Persimmon’s latest development of stunning new homes.
Located between Chichester Harbour AONB and the buzzing coastal resort of Bognor Regis, Selsey is one of the few relatively hidden gems along the hugely popular West Sussex coast – and one of the sunniest places in the UK! Though the town is tucked away, accessible by one road which leads down from Chichester, it is a bustling and lively place to live, within easy reach of large town amenities and transport links. With a great range of local shops and services within walking distance, beautiful beaches and coastline just down the road, and the larger centres of Portsmouth and Chichester within commutable distance, Manor Gardens could be your ideal place to call home.
This site will have two publicly accessible play areas and Persimmon will be making contributions of £175,392 toward improvements on the A27 and £170,000 to mitigate the impact of Recreational Disturbance, in addition to over £1.2m to fund infrastructure improvements in the district.
Walk 20 minutes from Manor Gardens and you’ll reach East Beach, a pretty stretch of shingle beach with vast open views of the Channel. On the other side of town is a another lovely beach to stroll along, and outside of Selsey you’ll find more coastal delights a few miles in either direction – the unspoilt sandy shores of West Wittering to the west, with Pagham and of course Bognor Regis to the east. There is lots of nature to enjoy at nearby RSPB Medmerry or RSPB Pagham Harbour, or make the 20 minute drive to Chichester Harbour where you’ll find more marine birdlife and stunning scenery.
You’ll find everyday amenities and shops in Selsey, mostly clustered along the High Street which leads down to the beach. Independent shops, eateries and pubs offer opportunities to purchase local goods, while there’s an Asda and Costa Coffee just a short walk from the development. For a greater range of retail opportunities, Chichester (20 minutes away) is home to a wide selection of high street shops and restaurants, while Bognor Regis (24 minutes) has a similar range, and Portsmouth (36 minutes) offers all the city shopping and services you could need.
Families will be well-catered for here – Selsey has two primary schools and a secondary school, all rated ‘Good’ by Ofsted, plus a nursery. There are several leisure facilities in and around Selsey, and a wider range of schools in nearby Bognor Regis.
By road, the route out of Selsey provides easy access to Chichester, Bognor Regis and Portsmouth, all of which have train stations (and, in Portsmouth’s case, a ferry port). The area is also served by bus routes, meaning you will have ample opportunity to get out and explore the area.
