West Sussex Property Finders

West Sussex is the most sparsely populated county that we cover from this office, this is partly due to the fact that the train links to London for commuters are not as good as Hampshire and Surrey.

The county is dominated by the South Downs and a large portion is in the National Park (SDNP). The countryside is magnificent and offers some fantastic walks. An abundance of little villages with great pubs and a fabulous choice of property, from houses in the towns to hidden rural splendour in the countryside. The seaside is never far away and West Wittering is the jewel in the crown with a 4 mile long sandy beach.

Over the past 30yrs we have helped a lot of downsizers find their new homes in West Sussex. Once our clients have sold their family home, often they look for a smaller, easy to manage house which can still accommodate their children and grandchildren when necessary. The need for a good train link to London might have diminished but a large percentage still want to be either in, or on the outskirts of, a small town so that they are within walking distance of all the amenities.

The Chichester area is popular because of the diverse number of attractions available. The cathedral and the centre of town are appealing both to tourists but also locals for the shopping, cafes, bars and pubs. It is a haven for sailing enthusiasts with excellent yacht clubs including Bosham, Emsworth and Itchenor. Goodwood offers the most beautiful racecourse in the country on top of the South Downs, as well as the car racing circuit where vintage car fans can do their stuff in the summer months, and the aerodrome for anyone interested in flying small planes and gliders. The beaches around West & East Wittering and also Bracklesham Bay have been very popular with our clients for second homes.

We have helped our clients buy a variety of different styles and types of house in this region and they have all benefited from our local knowledge and contacts.

Although Bill Spreckley the regional director for Stacks lives in Hampshire, he is only 1 mile from the West Sussex border and 9 miles from Midhurst. This Stacks office has done more business with estate agents in Midhurst than in any other town in the three counties we cover. Consequently our relationship with those agents is second to none.

The plethora of quiet villages in between Petersfield and Midhurst, and Midhurst to Petworth are particularly popular. Commuters who don’t mind a slightly longer trip to the station, take their trains from Petersfield, Liphook or Haslemere. We have bought the whole gamut of possible properties in this area: retirement homes, houses for downsizers, family homes and small estates. The prices have ranged between £500k and £6m.

People move to the area for its relaxed atmosphere, yet with proximity to civilisation (!) and the chance to buy a house in some of the most beautiful villages in the south of the country.
