THE PROPERTY

Occupying an enviable position directly on Bosham Harbour and within the conservation area, a delightful Georgian fisherman's cottage, Listed Grade II, and constructed of Mixon stone, with the most amazing full on harbour views. The house has three bedrooms plus a ground floor sitting room with double opening windows onto a south facing terrace, providing unbelievable southerly views across the harbour and with steps down to the water. Although in need of refurbishment the cottage would make a fabulous weekend bolthole, sailors cottage or full time home. The property is located in the centre of the village, on the ancient High Street, and within a few hundred yards of the popular sailing club and Anchor Bleu pub. Bosham itself has become one of the premier centres for sailing with a multitude of moorings for boats and yachts, and has a fascinating history, with the chancel of its Saxon church featured in the Bayeux Tapestry. The village also has a primary school, two pubs and a very popular hotel/restaurant, tea rooms and an arts and crafts centre, whilst a little further to the north there is a well-stocked farm shop and sub post office, medical centre and bakery. Sailing is the premier past time in the immediate area, but other recreational activities are well catered for, including a number of golf courses, wind surfing and bathing from the beaches at the Witterings and the South Downs National Park just to the north, providing thousands of acres of riding and walking countryside. In addition to these, Goodwood is perhaps best known for its race course but also provides a country club and has become increasing well known for its annual Festival of Speed and Revival of its historic motor circuit. Chichester city centre is particularly well known for its cultural activities centred around the 12th century Cathedral and annual Festivities.
