Auction Appraiser Joe Rocks said: “Local history suggests this attractive cottage was built in the 1800s by local fishermen and formed part of a development at the time known as the ‘Fishermen’s Quarters’.

“The close proximity of properties and distinctive tightly-knit cottages on shallow plots suggests the original occupiers and community in the area relied upon the sea, rather than the land, for living.

“The cottage has been modernised and extended and offers two bedroom accommodation.

“Most recently let on an assured shorthold tenancy, it has also previously been used as a short term holiday let achieving up to £1,100 per week during peak season.

“Now vacant, the cottage is ideal for an owner occupier or as an addition to a residential property portfolio.”

Selsey is located on the southernmost tip of the Manhood Peninsula which offers some of West Sussex’s best beaches.

Chichester and the A27 are just an eight-mile drive away enabling easy access to Goodwood, Fontwell and the South Downs, with other major road networks and cities beyond.
