A lovingly cared-for four-bedroom family house in Aldwick offers would-be owners a chance of comfortable, secluded living in a cleverly designed layout.

Constructed in the 1990s to a very specific and unusual design, Kinderhof is located in Aldwick Road and, according to the vendors, is a wonderfully calm and spacious home that would suit a growing family down to the ground.

One of the vendors said: “Kinderhof was built about 35 years ago by the man who used to live next door.

“He had several adult children and wanted to make sure, if anything happened to him, his children would be fine.

“He decided to build the house and gave it its unusual name as it’s the German for ‘children’s house’.

“It’s quite a yarn and the various occupants have kept the name, so it’s always been known as this.”

She said leaving would be something of a wrench: “We’ve always loved the house as it’s so relaxing and it will be sad to leave it, but we are finding the stairs increasingly difficult.”

She said one of the house’s main pluses was its lovely ambience and the well-sized rooms.

“It’s an easy house to live in.

“Inside, the kitchen is very sunny and so is the dining room and the two back bedrooms.”

She said that, above all, the house was not only comfortable but also very well designed, with extras such as three toilets and lots of space.

“It’s very straightforward – it flows from one room into another.”

The south-facing garden is another bonus, as it has been exceptionally well maintained by the vendors’ son and is very private, being fully enclosed.

It boasts a gazebo-type cedar greenhouse plus a second little octagonal greenhouse, where the vendors like to place chairs on the paving and sit comfortably away from the wind on a blustery day, to make the most of the ‘gorgeous’ sunshine.

In fact, this beautiful garden is a treat pretty much year-round: “We spend hours in it in the spring and summer – in fact, this year we had breakfast on the patio until mid-November.

“The patio is large and has containers, so all summer it is alive with colour.

“We also have a deck and a lawn, with a Braeburn apple, a Williams pear – which is absolutely delicious – and Victoria plums, which are prolific.

“We also have 11 different types of clematis mingled with roses, which bloom from April until November – we still have blooms out there today.”

The vendors say Kinderhof’s location is ideal, as it is close to bus routes and a few hundred yards from the duck pond.

Their home is also a short walk to the shops in Rose Green for odds and ends, while Sainsbury’s and Tesco’s in Bognor Regis are a short drive away.
