A delightful character cottage-style residence situated in a prime position on Rustington's private Sea Estate, within just a few hundred yards of the seafront.
Dolphin Cottage, most likely constructed mid-century, has not been on the open market for over half a century, having remained in the same family throughout this period. This presents a unique opportunity to acquire an individual and unspoilt home.
There is scope for some improvement and refurbishment, with a great deal of the original charm and character retained, including latched timber panelled internal doors and leaded light Crittall windows. The property does benefit from a substantial ground floor extension, and sits on a generous plot, with a good size west facing garden. There is potential for further enlargement on either the ground floor, first floor, or both, subject to normal planning consents.
Sea Avenue is one of Rustington's premier roads, located on Rustington's private Sea Estate and providing direct access to the seafront greensward and the foreshore.
Rustington's comprehensive village center can be found within approximately half a mile, with a wide range of independent and national retailers, including Waitrose supermarket. The village offers extensive amenities with cafes, restaurants, library, churches and medical center all close to hand. Angmering mainline railway station (approx. 1 mile) provides a regular service to Gatwick Airport and London Victoria (90 minutes).
