Located in a convenient position between Bosham and Emsworth, Hamstead Croft is a detached older style property we believe originally built around 1890 with many original features. The house has been considerably up-dated and extended by the current owners to provide superb family accommodation with views from the first floor towards farmland and the Downs in the distance. The ground floor provides a large kitchen breakfast room with double doors providing access into a separate dining room and sitting room. Both of these rooms have sliding patio doors providing access out on to the rear gardens. There is also a family room, study and cloakroom on the ground floor with underfloor heating throughout. On the first floor, the master bedroom has excellent views over the rear garden towards farmland and has an en-suite shower room. There is a second bedroom with en-suite shower room and three further bedrooms as well as a family bathroom. Outside the property has a walled front garden with an area of off-road parking for several vehicles and detached garaging. To the rear of the house there is an extensive lawned garden with a large entertaining terrace adjoining the back of the property. The property can be found just a short distance from Bosham and Nutbourne where there is a local railway halt. The Chidham peninsula is a short distance away where there is a local public house and sailing club. An activity centre can be found at Cobnor Point. The property is within convenient travelling distance of both Chichester and Emsworth which offer a wide range of shopping facilities and rail links with connections via Chichester to London Victoria and via Havant to London Waterloo.
