LUXURY PRIVATE BEACH ESTATE NR BRIGHTON FEAT. MAY '13 DESIGN MAGAZINE

Photos and Description of this 5 bedroom holiday home in Arun - SOUTHERN CROSS HOUSE

This is a definite escape-and-relax house! Beautifully designed and completed in July 2012. The spacious house has inter-connected large airy rooms and a vast kitchen/diner perfect for sociable weekends. Open up the doors to the garden and evening terrace and follow the sunshine throughout the day. Light the bar-b-q (or take one to the beach) and drift away to the sounds of the gentle fountain and seagulls.

Leaving the car behind for the day? Angmering station is a genuine 7 minute walk. Jump on a train eastbound to Brighton and wander through the lanes down to the pier for chips and ice cream. With it's re-knowned shopping boutiques, royal history, Brighton Pavilion (a former royal palace from the 1800's) and kooky Lanes from the town's original days as a fishing village, everyone in your party will find a place to love here. Want to head west too? Arundel is a 10 minute drive away. Join the Duke and Duchess of Norfolk (figuratively speaking!) and spend the day exploring the castle. Wander through the cathedral and make time for the numerous antique shops, tea shops and restaurants. Definitely worth heading back here for dinner one evening. (The Town House, located in a 17th century building is in the Michelin Guide as is the George and Dragon in Burpham, trading since 1736)

Need to escape the crowds? Britain's newest National Park, the South Downs is on the doorstep. Join the South Downs Way for a few miles at nearby Angmering and work off the cupcakes or hike up Highdown Hill for panoramic coastal views. Occupied from the late bronze and iron ages and the traditional burial place for kings of Sussex, the summit has the remains of an ancient hill fort. Nearby Cissbury Ring and Chanctonbury Ring will similarly capture an historical imagination. Alternatively take to the water. Teenagers in the group might like to try their hand at kite surfing or sea kayaking at Goring, 5 miles away.

The decor of the house is fresh and clean with shutter-style blinds, oak floors throughout the living rooms, and thick squashy carpets in the bedrooms. Bathrooms are immaculately clean and fitted with marble and porcelain tiles, power showers (or free-standing bath) and thick fluffy towels.

There are adult spaces, children spaces, 3 large flatscreen tv's with sky+ and a dedicated champagne fridge! We have games, a high chair, free wifi, local recommendations and anything you may need that we have arrange. A welcome pack of bread, milk etc is no problem. Just come, put your bags down and rest.....

Kindly: The house is in a quiet residential area, ideal for families and mellow groups of friends. It is NOT suitable for parties. If you are looking for a party house, please book somewhere else more suitable. If you are looking for a weekend get-together in a blissfully peaceful, safe area, this is the perfect house for you. Thankyou.

Following a 15 year career as an air stewardess, I had a change of direction in 2011 to interior design. I have lived in Brighton, Vancouver and New York and now settled back on the Sussex Coast. Southern Cross House was fully renovated and completed in 2012.

Sally purchased this house in 2011

Stunning feature 30ft kitchen/dining room with cream and limestone SieMatic kitchen. Gaggenau hob, hood and dishwasher, 2 x Miele ovens (1 inc. microwave).

Fridge freezer

Between the beautiful South Downs national park and the sea, with Historic Arundel (castle and cathedral) to the west and modern,vibrant Brighton to the east, the location has everything covered! A large private mature garden, bar-b-q. 6 seater contemporary patio set. Water fountain and stainless steel out door lighting mean if you're staying in, you won't be missing out. Please note: The house is in a quiet residential area, ideal for families and groups of friends. It is NOT suitable for parties. If you are looking for a party house, please book somewhere else more suitable. If you are looking for a weekend get-together in a safe area, this is the perfect house for you. Thankyou.

30TH BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION

  • 5 out of 5
Beautiful house, ideal location right by the beach! The owner was most helpful; her recommendation of East Beach Café for Sunday lunch rounded off our celebration weekend perfectly.
Just a couple of points (to be 'picky'): no mirrors! Only one bedroom (and none of the bathrooms) had a mirror. Our bedroom had 4 double sockets but no mirror. This would have been irritating had we stayed for more than a weekend. Also simple operating instructions for the appliances and heating/HW would have been helpful.
That apart...we had a fabulous happy time at the house.

Owner's Response: Thanks for such an honest review Wendy. House instructions for appliances etc are emailed out with initial booking confirmation but I will ensure there is a copy left in the house. (there usually is...). 3 of the bathrooms do have mirrors but I am going to add floor standing mirrors in all the bedrooms in the next fortnight. Really pleased you had such a good weekend and enjoyed the East beach Cafe! Sally

AMAZING WEEKEND BREAK

  • 5 out of 5
To begin with I would like to say how beautiful the house was , when booking via the internet you are always hesitant in knowing how much space there would be and how luxurious it would be , This house I must say went past all our imaginations and turned out to be a huge well serving house for 16 of us. The rooms were large and the whole concept of the house was beautiful. Sally, the owner of the house , was very hospitable and accomodated all our needs from fitting in extra beds to being flexible with arrival and departure times. There is a private beach 3 minute walk from the house and its very serene and provided us with beautiful walks in the evening. The barbecue area was perfect for our needs and the garden was enjoyed by all of us where we play badminton and football. The kitchen was huge with open dining and a grand dining table for 10 , we enjoyed lovely meals together and it was a wonderful trip I must say , a week back and we are all still talking about how perfect the weekend was , it was a family break and made us all closer :) Sally welcomed us with homemade fudge and checked in on us to make sure we were happy , she was in constant contact and was always available if we needed anything , she provided us with information on nearby activities and amenities. All in all the 3 night break was fabulous , the house was just PERFECT. :) :) Very Very happy :)

THE PERFECT WEEKEND!

  • 5 out of 5
We (ten of us!) have just got back from the best weekend at Southern Cross House.

The house itself was beautiful and clean. It was the perfect place for entertaining. The bedrooms were large and airy, which when the sun shone let in so much light.

Downstairs there was plenty of space for entertaining, which for a group of ten ladies on a hen weekend was brilliant. The open plan kitchen/dining room meant we could prepare food and drinks whilst still being involved in the proceedings! And the lounge was large enough to fit us all in for watching the telly and relaxing.

There were also plenty of bathrooms/toilets for a large group of people, this was an initial concern for a group of ten women, but needn’t have been as it was absolutely fine.

The house was set in a private garden, which, when the sun was out meant we could socialise outside without being overlooked. It was also only a ten minute walk to the beach, which a few of our group walked to on a couple of occasions.

The owner Sally was excellent to deal with, so friendly and welcoming. On our arrival she had placed two bottles of bubbly in the fridge and left a cake with the loveliest card on the side to welcome us. From the off we knew we were going to have a lovely time, which we did indeed. To quote the hen our weekend was “outstanding”!

I/we would thoroughly recommend Southern Cross House and would love to go back there in the future; we’re just waiting for another one of us to get engaged! Thank you Sally for making our weekend so perfect.

RUSTINGTON BEACH HOUSE

  • 5 out of 5
We had a long sunny weekend at the house and a fantastic time was had by all. We didn't use any restaurants nearby as the house had all the facilities we needed and didn't want to leave. Photos accurately describe the house and was clean and well maintained.

I would recommend this house to anyone.

This is a definite escape-and-relax house! Beautifully designed and completed in July 2012. The long clean pebble beach is 2 minutes walk away through private roads. There is also a private greensward adjacent to the beach for dog walking/picnics etc.
