Sail away with me

Filed under: Latest News — Four Communications @ 9:48 am

Whether you are a seasoned skipper with many nautical miles under your belt, a recreational yachtsman or a ‘landlubber’ who prefers to just dip their toes, a waterfront home has enormous cachet and rarity value.

With over 6000 sq ft and with direct frontage onto Bosham Channel, Quay House in Bosham, West Sussex, serves as the perfect example of contemporary waterfront living. Built in the 1960s, the property has undergone extensive renovation and now includes a conservatory with unspoiled views and a stunning original 60s staircase, integral boat store as well as mooring rights. Situated in the heart of this picturesque village, Quay House is within walking distance of the Bosham Sailing Club. The property is on the market with our Chichester office for £3,750,000, for more information click here.

The reasonably sheltered yet challenging waters of Chichester Harbour are within convenient travelling distance of London, making this a favoured location for weekend and holiday sailors.  The Bosham and Itchenor sailing clubs are both highly regarded amongst the sailing fraternity and regularly attracting large fleets of classic day boats and well as frequently hosting the national championships for several of the keelboat classes.

Coming to market for the first time since 1960, Harbour Lights, also in Bosham, comes complete with a private jetty, tennis court and around 230ft of direct water frontage. This spacious family home was extended in 1990 and sits within three acres of attractive grounds, enjoying views stretching from Bosham Hoe to Itchenor Sailing Club – one of the most popular sailing destinations within convenient travelling distance of London. The property is on the market with our Chichester office for £2.950,000, for more information click here.

Meanwhile, situated on one side of the Noss Creek valley, White Cottage in Newton Ferrers enjoys an elevated position with views across the River Yealm, a thriving yacht haven in the warmer months. Internally, the property is spacious and enjoys large amounts of natural light thanks to the panoramic bay windows in the living room and main bedrooms.  The twin villages of Noss Creek and Newton Ferrers provide a range of local amenities and are both renowned for their close knit community atmospheres, as well as the nearby Yealm Yacht Club, which provides a busy calendar of both sailing and social events for its members. The property is on the market with our Exeter office for £1,800,000, for more information, click here.

The last thatched house in Knaresborough

Filed under: Latest News — Tags: , , , , , , , — Four Communications @ 4:03 pm

According to Jackson-Stops & Staff in York, thatched properties are a rarity in North Yorkshire, which makes the office’s latest instruction even more noteworthy. Manor Cottage, which occupies an outstanding position overlooking the river Nidd, holds the title of the last remaining thatched property in Knaresborough.

Thought to have been constructed in the 14th century as one of a number of thatched cottages in the area, Grade II listed Manor Cottage has withstood the test of time and has undergone extensive renovation and refurbishment, with care being taken to ensure its period features were retained.  Situated on Water Bag Bank, named after the ponies that carried bags of water from the river to the town, the cottage enjoys an enviable position with unspoiled views of the magnificent stone railway viaduct that passes over the river. The attractive town of Knaresborough is set around the central market square and offers a range of boutique shops and eateries, as well as various tourist attractions including the famous Mother Shipton’s Cave. The property is on the market with our York office for £550,000, for more information click here.

Jackson-Stops & Staff also have a number of other historical thatched properties on the market, including Dalleys Cottage in Chilton, Devon. Grade II listed and dating to the 19th century, the property began life as two separate cottages, before being combined to form this spacious four bedroom family home. Situated in the heart of rolling farmland, Dalleys Cottage enjoys seclusion and privacy, yet is within easy reach of nearby Tiverton and Exeter. The property is on the market through our Exeter office for £585,000, for more information click here.

Aptly named, The Thatch is an 18th century cottage that enjoys uninterrupted views of the nearby water meadows of Longparish, Hampshire. Constructed of attractive white wash brick, the property is spacious and has recently been rethatched. The village of Longparish lies in the Test valley and offers a range of amenities as well as the renowned ‘Test Way’, ideal for walking and cycling. The property is on the market with our Winchester office for £585,000, for more information click here.

The great Valentine’s Day escape

For old-fashioned romantics, few things can beat the archetypal idyll of a cosy cottage, tucked away in seclusion with a roaring fire.

Manor Gate Cottage in Plush, Dorset is the quintessential winter cottage. Situated on a no through road in the heart of the Dorset countryside, the two bedroom cottage offers character and charm, combined with peace and privacy. The nearby village of Plush remains in keeping with the romantic archetype; the Brace of Pheasants pub offering home cooked meals and real ales, while the pretty church of St John the Baptist  plays host to a series of highly regarded classical music events. The property is on the market with our Dorchester office, for more information click here.

Thought to date to 1750 and extensively renovated over recent years, Chance Cottage is a picturesque cottage in a quiet location with secluded grounds and a large swimming pool.  Constructed mainly of Cotswold Stone with a natural Cotswold Slate roof, the property provides substantial family accommodation, complete with a small studio/office room above the double garage outside. Four miles from Chance Cottage is the idyllic town of Burford, cited as ‘The Gateway to the Cotswolds’ and home to a range of historic public houses and inns, independent shops and galleries as well as breathtaking scenery. The property is on the market with our Burford office, for more information click here.

For those who fancy a ‘storybook’ romantic hideaway, few properties can top 10 Holme Eden Hall.  Built in 1833, in a Tudor style by renowned architect John Dobson, this magnificent country house has been split up into number of apartments, all boasting far reaching views across the Upper Eden Valley. Although situated in a picturesque rural position, the property is within short distance of some of the most famous areas in the north of England, such as the ancient city of Carlisle and the World Heritage Site of Hadrian’s Wall – perfect for those brisk romantic strolls. The property is on the market with our York office, for more information click here.
