Vista Point is a large Grade II-listed house with extensive gardens leading directly to the beach, located on a private estate in West Sussex. Designed in the late 1960s by Patrick Gwynne, one of the most important and remarkable British architects of the 20th century, it is a rare example of a significant Modern house beside the sea.
Vista Point is in outstanding original condition and benefits from five bedrooms and a large living room with a balcony, as well as a swimming pool and pool complex, also designed by Gwynne. The house is designed around an impressive central wood-panelled spiral staircase with a glass-domed roof. Throughout the house there are examples of Gwynne’s renowned attention to interior detail.
The site is approximately 0.65 acres in size. Outside the house there are three garages, extensive space for parking and, at the rear, a large lawn and further gardens, including a vegetable garden. There is direct access to the beach.
The house is set in a tranquil location on the Willowhayne private seaside estate. The local shops of East Preston are a short walk away. Rustington, two miles away, offers a more extensive range of facilities. Angmering train station is only 1 mile away and runs services to London Victoria and London Bridge. Worthing, Arundel, Chichester and Brighton are within short driving distance of the house. Littlehampton is also close by, which offers facilities for sailing and also the recently-opened East Beach Café, designed by Thomas Heatherwick. London is approximately 60 miles away by car.
