Full description

A superb, detached family home situated in a semi-rural location overlooking farmland to the front and stables to the rear. The property was originally built in 1857 as a two-bedroom cottage and was sympathetically extended and upgraded by the current owners in 2016 using reclaimed bricks on the façade to seamlessly blend into the existing building, retaining original fireplaces to the entrance hall and drawing room.

Features include full LED spotlighting throughout. Solid core oak veneer doors and engineered oak flooring to the kitchen family room with Jeldwen double glazed timber windows throughout. Central heating is via an external Grant oil fired combi boiler.

On entering the property via the flagstone porch area, you are greeted by a spacious hallway with the original slate fire surround still in situ. Access is provided to the drawing room and large double aspect dining room. The kitchen/family room is accessed via double doors, featuring a vaulted ceiling and electrically activated Velux rooflights, with access to the Indian sandstone patio through French doors. The study and water closet are also accessed from the hallway areas along with the stairs to the first floor.

Upstairs, the spacious vaulted landing with Velux rooflight and large airing cupboard provides access to the four double bedrooms, two with ensuite facilities and a family bathroom.

Outside the large plot extends to approximately half an acre with a double access drive and single oak framed garage.

Double timber gates allow access to the rear of the property, which features a double length oak framed storage building with adjoining sun deck and open sided porch area perfect for barbecues. A large parking area is provided for motorhome and boat storage

Why live in Hayling Island?

Hayling Island is a delightful 12-square mile area of land that’s completely surrounded by the sea and can only be accessed by the road bridge from Langstone. It’s is an absolute mecca for watersports – windsurfing was invented here and we have miles of glorious, safe beaches that are made for seaside activities, including sailing, power boating, jet skiing and beach volleyball.

Beachlands beach has received the international Blue Flag award every year for the past 25 years and is the perfect spot to while away the hours looking over the Solent with a fish and chip supper.

We’re well served by shops across the island’s three main villages of Mengham, West Town and Eastoke Corner and have five schools on the Island, including infant, junior and secondary schools. There’s plenty to keep the children busy outside school hours too with the Funland Amusement Park at Beachlands, the Hayling Seaside Railway that runs from Beachlands to Eastoke Corner and the adiZone Outdoor Gym at Eastoke that has all kinds of free equipment for youngsters to use.

There are two pay and play golf courses here and, at the Seacourt Tennis Club, members can play real tennis on one of the few remaining real tennis courts in the world. You’ll also find a wide selection of restaurants, cafés and takeaways, including the award winning Brasserie Restaurant in the Langstone Hotel.
