A truly exquisite Georgian townhouse on the south coast with grace, style and a roof terrace

This Grade II*-listed house in Worthing has grand Georgian interiors and a panoramic roof terrace.

Situated on Park Crescent in Worthing, West Sussex, and overlooking leafy Amelia Park, this Grade II*-listed townhouse exudes Georgian elegance.

Beautifully kept, it spans 4392sqft with six bedrooms (including the master suite with its dressing room, and a bedroom in a stand-alone apartment on the lower ground floor) and a spectacular reception room with floor-to-ceiling windows on the ground floor.

There’s also a separate dining room, a delightful kitchen with Aga and a first-floor sitting room with balcony.

Worthing: What you need to know

    • Location: Worthing is on the south coast, half an hour’s drive west of Brighton. That’s unless there is traffic, of course: the A27 — the main coastal route – does tend to get snarled up. Worthing has a mainline railway station, which takes 1hr 2o mins to get to London Bridge.
    • Atmosphere: What was a little mackerel-fishing hamlet until the 18th century became a bustling town when the  Georgian Society flocked to the seaside. Today, Worthing — and its surrounding satellites, which blend into each other —  has a population of over 100,000, with an Art Deco pier that is as popular as ever.
    • Things to do: Visit the Marine Gardens and the Worthing Museum and Art Gallery, go kitesurfing or head into the South Downs and walk around the Cissbury Ring.
    • Schools: HSt Mary’s Catholic Primary School is rated Good by Ofsted
