Let's Move to West Worthing

Somewhere between Worthing Town Centre and Goring, south of the railway line that dissects our fine town, lies West Worthing with indistinct boundaries but a very distinctive character.

West Worthing is one of the most sought-after areas of the town and with good reason too.

Property prices are higher than average for Worthing but still realistic and less than its neighbour Goring by Sea so the area still offers some very good value homes.

It's a cliché to say that there is something for everybody but we're going to say it anyway...

There Is Something for Everybody!

The area was mostly developed in the 1920’s and 1930’s and there are still many fine detached houses in the Grand Avenue, Lansdowne Road and Hythe Road areas where you can pick up a detached four bed for around £600,000+.

A number of these large houses (particularly those with large gardens) have been demolished the last 40 years also to create a variety of purpose built flats to suit all budgets.

From the 1970’s blocks in Wallace Avenue that provide studio accommodation ideal for first time buyers or, increasingly, for the holiday flat market to larger blocks such as Belmar Court in Grand Avenue or Seabright right on the coast itself. These type of blocks will usually be served with a lift, have balconies and parking or garaging. Cardinal Court in Grand Avenue has underground parking which is still quite unusual in the area.

West Worthing Schools and Education

With easy access to good local schools such as Elm Grove Primary and Thomas a Becket, family houses from around £325,000 can be found in Bruce Avenue and Elm Grove itself as well as in Reigate Road where these are generally 1920’s and 30’s and so offer good proportion rooms and good gardens but it should be noted that parking can be an issue for some in this area which is why many have used their front gardens for parking.

Another reason for the area’s popularity is the easy access to the coast road making east west travel simple and also the great shopping facilities at Goring Road which surprisingly still includes a number of banks and building societies. Smaller shops and pubs and cafés can be found at the southern end of Heene Road - a useful refuelling stop on the 20 minute walk along Worthing seafront to the town centre.

There's a lot on offer in West Worthing which is why we have two offices serving the area!
