The House

Explore the interior and exterior of Vista Point

This property 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 – this property is a rare example of a significant Modern house beside the sea.

The house 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 centres 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 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, including golf. Littlehampton is also close by, which offers facilities for sailing and also the East Beach Café, designed by Thomas Heatherwick. Sailing and tennis clubs can be found at East Preston and there are many nearby walks along South Downs Way.
