BIDDING HAS NOW CLOSED FOR THE SALE OF THIS PROPERTY A substantial family home occupying a delightful south-facing 2.83 acre plot and with fabulous views across Emsworth Harbour to Thorney Island, Hayling Island and the mouth of Chichester Harbour. From the entrance hall, passing the cloakroom, there is a spacious hallway with storage units built in. A door leads to the generously proportioned sitting room with superb views over the garden to the waterside beyond. A further, very spacious reception room can be found at the far end of the hall, with wood flooring and patio doors onto the gardens. A further reception room would be well suited for a study space, benefitting from some built in storage cupboards and shelving. The kitchen includes an Aga and space for white goods, with the adjoining utility room with a large Belfast style sink along with further space for white goods. There is also a larder and a large boiler room with plenty of storage space. From the first floor landing, the master bedroom suite includes a wardrobe and doors leading out onto the balcony which enjoys fabulous views over the gardens to the water. The en suite bathroom has an electric shower over the bath, with WC and sink. There are 4 further double bedrooms along with a bathroom having a shower over the bath. The separate WC and airing cupboard complete the first floor accommodation. The 2.83 acre grounds are the real feature of this property. The rear gardens are mainly laid to lawn with a raised patio area. Hedges separate the garden from a paddock which leads down to the water's edge. Private access to the foreshore along with a tennis court are further benefits this property. There is also a garage, outbuilding along with ample off road parking and a car port. The pretty harbourside town of Emsworth is extremely popular. It has retained a good collection of local shops, pretty pubs and restaurants including three mentioned in the Michelin Guide. Emsworth and Slipper Sailing Clubs are only a short walk away and the town still retains a small fishing fleet with two boatyards specialising in classic local craft. Despite its idyllic setting, Emsworth is extremely accessible with good road and rail links to London with Havant Station providing a mainline service to Waterloo in 1 hour 25 minutes. The cathedral city of Chichester lies 8 miles to the east, home to the internationally famous Festival Theatre and Pallant House Gallery. The surrounding countryside provides a wide choice of recreational facilities, including of course Goodwood with its famous racecourse, private health club and airfield. The annual Festival of Speed and the Revival meeting at its historic motor circuit have also become prominent annual events. Chichester Harbour and the waters of The Solent are some of the most popular and easily accessible sailing facilities and the beaches of West Wittering draw many visitors each year with facilities for windsurfing, kite surfing and land-boarding. The South Downs National Park provides many miles of beautiful footpaths and bridlepaths and is a perfect setting for its picturesque hamlets, excellent pubs and restaurants.
