Work begins on transforming historic Worthing pub into luxury apartments
The site of the former Wheatsheaf Pub on Richmond Road near Worthing town centre is to be transformed into eight contemporary apartments by an independent developer. Demolition work has already begun, and the apartments are due to be completed in the spring/summer of 2023.
Final orders were called in 2017 and after two previous development bids being refused, it was third time lucky in March 2020 where planning was finally approved. The bespoke development which sits between the library and the council offices, Portland House will comprise three 1-bedroom apartments, two 1–2-bedroom apartments, two 2-bedroom homes and a desirable top-floor penthouse.
The homes on the Wheatsheaf site will all benefit from private outdoor space in the form of either a balcony, terrace, or patio, and will feature modern open-plan living spaces, integrated kitchens, and luxury bathrooms. Careful attention to detail coupled with high-end fixtures and fittings are sure to make the Wheatsheaf Apartments one of Worthing’s most sought-after addresses.
Leases for the development will be 125 years with a peppercorn ground rent, and service charge costs will be confirmed in due course.
