    • 3 nights Min Stay low season 7 nights high seasons

    The eye-catching Vista Point, near Angmering on the West Sussex coast, is an incredible five-bedroom holiday home designed by renowned 20th-century architect, Patrick Gwynne. Completed in 1970, it retains much of its 70s aesthetic – which will delight fans of the decade’s design – while adding some present-day touches. The stunning sea views remain as captivating as ever, too. Looking out over the garden, the living room has stylish seating for eight, as well as a 42” Smart TV with Netflix, Blu-ray and Sky TV. A Bose stereo with Bluetooth receiver lets you stream music straight from your own device, and you can walk straight out to the balcony overlooking the lawn and swimming pool. Resplendent in orange, the spacious kitchen wraps around the front of the house. The look is retro but the appliances are bang up to date – you have a DeLonghi coffee machine, microwave, dishwasher, fridge freezer, double oven and hob, plus a whole lot of extras which should cover all your entertaining needs. The adjoining dining room lets up to ten guests enjoy its ocean views – the positioning of the main rooms on the upper level was a deliberate choice to make the most of them. You will find the sleeping quarters downstairs, with a quintet of bedrooms occupying two separate wings. Featuring a king-size bed with White Company linens, the master bedroom has its own en suite navy bathroom with bath and overhead shower. Bedrooms two and three can accommodate a further three guests between them, and share the yellow bathroom, while the remaining pair (one of which has bunk beds) have the use of the turquoise one. All have built-in wardrobes and look out over the gardens. The spacious, newly built games and cinema room comes with a full-size table tennis table and an 85” TV with Dolby Atmos surround sound, perfect for a movie night. A sun room looks out on the pool, and has a small kitchen and a changing area with shower. You will see that the pool itself is as intriguingly shapely as the house; the smooth curves and unusual angles lend a character to the place which is rarely seen today. As well as the gorgeous pool, the generous sized garden comes with loungers and has been landscaped to create a cool hidden area with a firepit. There's a sunken SafeSpring trampoline - great fun for kids (and grown-ups too). There is also a veg patch and greenhouse, and guests are welcome to help themselves to whatever's in season, including delicious fresh tomatoes, cucumber, courgettes, sweetcorn, kale and raspberries. Located on a private estate, you can walk straight down to the beach from Vista Point’s garden gate. It’s an easy walk to the cafés and pubs of East Preston, with Angmering close by and Littlehampton just over three miles away. Within around 15 minutes’ drive, you have Arundel Castle on the southern edge of the South Downs, plus Goodwood Racecourse, Bognor Regis and Chichester a little further west… there’s no shortage of scenic places inland and on the coast around this area. It’s not often you come across a place as evocative as Vista Point – you are sure to be talking about it long after you return home.
