East Lepe

Located in the sought-after coastal village of Gurnard, East Lepe is particularly well-located in an elevated position within an attractive garden extending down to the waters edge. This characterful period house has exceptional views towards the Hampshire Coast and of the surrounding countryside, as well as wonderful year-round sunsets. The house which was built in 1906, has been in the same ownership for approximately 30 years. It was designed to make the most of the views, which can be enjoyed from all of the principal rooms and retains an array of period features. The attractive mature gardens make for a secluded setting for the property and includes an orchard as well as a beachside terrace.

Gurnard is a popular local village with a thriving sailing club, waterfront café and two pubs.
