One-Off Feature

Positioned right on the seafront in the historic seaside town of Selsey, this wonderful railway carriage conversion captures all the charm and eccentricity of the great British coastline. This is a beach front villa with serious character.

General Info

The house is built around two lovingly restored 19th century Stroudley railway carriages. They were originally used on the Brighton to London line and then after the First World War they were converted into holiday homes along the Sussex coast. Each of the coaches has been carefully adapted and makes the most of the original features to create cosy quirky living spaces. As for the setting, this is as close to the beach as you can get and the uninterrupted views from the verandah are simply wonderful.
