THE PROPERTY

Located in a convenient position for Emsworth town centre and within 1/2 a mile of both Emsworth Sailing Club and the Slipper Sailing Club, Western Lodge is a beautifully appointed, detached family house offering superb accommodation. The property was formerly believed to have been built in the early 19th century and was actually the stables and grooms' quarters to Western House. Modernised and extended by the current owners, Western Lodge offers superb family accommodation and benefits from a wonderful 34' kitchen/breakfast room with large roof lantern over the dining area. Both this room and the equally impressive sitting room have access out on to the front south-facing gardens. There is also a good sized study on the ground floor. On the first floor, the master bedroom has an en-suite shower room. There is also a second bedroom suite with en-suite shower room and three further bedrooms, though one of these bedrooms could be used as a dressing room for the master bedroom if required. Western Lodge is discreetly tucked away at the end of a long gravel driveway, leading to an area of ample parking and a detached one bedroom annexe. There are lawned gardens to both the front and the rear of the house. This pretty harbourside town on the boundary of Hampshire and West Sussex is extremely popular and it is not hard to see why. It has retained a good number of local shops. public houses and restaurants. Emsworth Sailing Club and the Slipper Sailing Club are only a short distance away and the town still retains a small fishing fleet with two boat yards specialising in classic local craft. Despite its idyllic setting, Emsworth is easily accessible with good road and rail links to London. Havant Station provides mainline services to London Waterloo in about 1 hour 20 minutes. The city of Portsmouth is only 10 miles away. The cathedral city of Chichester is 8 miles to the east, home to the internationally renowned Festival Theatre and Pallant House Gallery. There are golf courses in the nearby village of Rowlands Castle and at Goodwood, where there is also a full calender of horse racing. Goodwood also plays host to the Festival of Speed and the Revival meeting at its historic motor circuit.
