A beautifully presented period fishermans cottage, occupying a lovely position, one house back from the harbour and sailing club in the Emsworth conservation area. The house has been significantly modernised and now offers modern and stylish open plan ground floor accommodation comprising a beautifully fitted modern kitchen and open plan sitting and dining rooms. On the first floor are two double bedrooms, one of which has tri-fold doors opening onto a fabulous roof terrace with views of Emsworth Harbour and there is a ships ladder leading to an occasional loft room. There is a shower room and utility room on the ground floor and delightful courtyard garden. South Street is a bustling harbour-side street, which runs down to the harbour edge and foreshore. This pretty harbour-side town on the boundary of Hampshire and Sussex is extremely popular and it is not hard to see why. It has retained a good collection of local shops, pretty pubs and noteworthy restaurants including 36 On The Quay and Fat Olives. Emsworth Slipper Sailing club is at the end of the road, and the town still retains a small fishing fleet. Despite its idyllic setting Emsworth is extremely accessible with good rail and road links to London, Havant Station providing a mainline service to Waterloo in 1 hours 25 minutes. Gunwharf Quays and the old city of Portsmouth are only 10 miles away and the cathedral city of Chichester lies 9 miles to the east. Sailing is the predominant past time on Chichester Harbour whilst the countryside to the north has been designated as The South Downs National Park.
