With breath-taking views over the head of Dolphin Lake, an exceptional opportunity to acquire one of only two unique, contemporary brand new homes with magnificent views and the use of an exclusive jetty and private mooring. Forming part of the Dolphin Quay development of only six beautifully constructed houses, each unit has been constructed to particularly stringent standards with underfloor heating throughout and luxury Sylvarna kitchens with integrated appliances, Duravit bathroom fittings and flooring comprising a mix of engineered oak, tiling and carpets throughout. This bespoke house, facing Dolphin Lake has been designed in a contemporary style. The materials chosen are of a traditional nature that reflect the industrial use of the former boat yard. The house shares a private jetty with the adjacnet dwelling to allow for personal mooring. Designed to reflect an industrial dwelling but utilised in a modern way to create a striking contrast against the neighbouring listed buildings, the elevation treatment materials are a wrapping metal facade, with timber cladding features, grey facing brick, grey windows and glass balconies with stainless steel handrails. Anti-glare and solar glass has been used on south facing windows to reduce any glare and avoid overheating. The architect has further addressed the Quay side edge with a unique wrapping window. The rear of the house has been sensitively designed so that no overlooking will occur with the amenity space of the traditional houses, with windows mainly for en-suites and kitchens which can be frosted and a feature window for the stairwells. The accommodation is arranged over three floors with secure garage parking for one car plus a car port, with double doors opening to a boat or dinghy storage unit which in turn has double doors opening onto the terrace and jetty. The house has been constructed to take full advantage of its location with a magnificent first floor open plan living area with picture windows opening onto the balcony with stunning views across the harbour. 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. 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 11 miles away and the cathedral city of Chichester lies 11 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.
