A substantial five bedroom detached family home with spacious and flexible accommodation spread over two floors. Originally thought to have been constructed in 1964 the house occupies a fine east/west plot in a mature setting to the north of Emsworth town centre. The house has been extended and now provides the possibility to create a ground floor annexe as there is a ground floor shower room, perfect for dependent relatives, or bed and breakfast/Airbnb. Other improvements that a prospective purchaser may wish to look into could include rearranging the kitchen/breakfast room incorporating the extra-large utility room or knocking into the dining room. On the first floor are 5 bedrooms, with a bathroom and shower room. Additionally the master bedroom has a shower cubicle and wash basin. The back garden offers a high degree of privacy, and has been well maintained and laid out. There is a useful lean-to and workshop. Emsworth is a pretty harbour side town on the Hampshire/Sussex borders. It has retained a great sense of community with the thriving art trial and the popular British food fortnight. There is a thriving sailing club, popular restaurants and pubs whilst Emsworth station serves Chichester and Brighton to the east, and Portsmouth Harbour to the west. Mainline rail services are available at Havant station, serving Waterloo in 1 hour and 25 minutes. A few minutes' walk from the house to the north is Hollybank Woods, part of the Woodlands Trust, leading in turn to Emsworth Common, Stansted Forest, with the South Downs National Park slightly further north. The cathedral city of Chichester lies 9 miles to the east, home to the Festival Theatre and Pallant House Gallery, whilst the Goodwood Estate hosts the Festival of Speed, Glorious Goodwood horse race meeting and the September Revival.
