With just a 40-minute drive to Portsmouth city, Selsey proves an easy commute for those working in the city and whilst growing in popularity, it has still maintained its coastal charm.

“Although an area that’s growing in size and now classed as a town, Selsey still enjoys being a seaside village with a sense of community spirit,” says Kevin Daymond, manager at Henry Adams estate agents.

“The sense of community spirit ranks quite high but also the diversity of people that live here with its coastal location.”

From old to new, Selsey has a varied mix in property too.

“We have everything from 1800’s built cottages in ‘old Selsey’ to modern 4/5 bed detached houses and pretty much everything in between,” describes Kevin.

“But the largest concentration of homes were built in the late 60’s early 70’s and are located on the eastern side of Selsey.”

“The average house price we are finding this year is around £280,000 – £300,000,” says Kevin.

“With starting prices for a two-bedroom house around £220,000, three-bedroom houses around £260,000, two-bed, semi-detatched bungalows around £250,000, four-bedroom houses around

£365,000 extending to in excess of £450,000 for the more individual ones.”

“The coastal path provides ample areas for walking or cycling,” says Kevin.

But if you’re more interested in taking the plunge, the Mulberry Divers scuba diving school will take you 10,000 leagues under the sea, or there about.

Divers can find the wreckage of World War II German U-Boats off the coast or maybe sunken treasure.

If your head is more in the clouds than under the sea, grab a telescope and become a stargazer.

Selsey is known for its dark night skies, so much so even the legendary astronomer Sir Patrick Moore explored the universe from his seaside retreat.
